Quark too has a great brand name although I do not know if it is from Aldi.
It is Onken!
It made me laugh to read about it because I have not run across that word, Quark, for a long time. I was an exchange student in Dortmund, Germany, when I first encountered it. At breakfast, with berries and rolls and whatever else.
I was in the dark about Quark and later that day when I got together with my fellow Americans, I mentioned it.
"Has anyone else run into this Quark?" I asked.
I always remember one guy responding: "I won't go near it."
Neither would I!
Unlike Pennario who, he loved Germany and I am sure when he was there he ate Quark, no problem. It is funny, I am usually not a picky eater but this Quark, I stayed away. I did not eat yogurt either back then, however, or sour cream. So there may be hope for me now.
