Fromage Frais and more good chocolate at Carrefour

I like how Carrefour continues to offer new products in its stores. The only problem is that some of these products are quite short-lived, so you need to buy them when you can. I tried the "Fromage Frais" this week without knowing what it was. Later, I learned that this is a kind of low-fat cheese (this variety is fat-free) with the consistency of yogurt. It's also known as quark. Alone, it's not too tasty, but with a little fruit or sweetener, it's a yummy source of protein. And it works great in smoothies or as a substitute for ricotta cheese in lasagna. I've also read that you can use it in cheesecakes. A tub of Fromage Frais is about NT$225, I think.

Carrefour also sells the Audrey Omega-3 enriched candybars (NT$55/ bar), which I've blogged about before. They have more varieties than Watsons; I recently purchased a dark chocolate bar with mango chips. Mmmmmm.....
