Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Putting them to the Test

Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Cottage Cheese

For this taste test, we compared a household favorite: cottage cheese. We chose two name brands and two store brands: Kraft and Horizon Organic, and Great Value and Kroger.
Price Analysis
Brand
Price
Size (oz)
Cost/oz
Great Value
$2.68

$0.11
Kroger
$1.99

$0.08
Kraft
$1.88

$0.12
Horizon Organic
$3.36

$0.21
In this taste test, the most striking result was how bad the Kraft cottage cheese tasted compared to the other three. The taste was sour, and it looked like it had been run through a food processor—not appetizing in the least. Of the other three, Horizon Organic tasted the best, but it was not much better than Great Value or Kroger cottage cheese; its taste certainly wasn't worth the price premium. Go with the store brand for cottage cheese; it's much less inexpensive and still tastes great.
