Food, like music and clothes, can cycle in and out of fashion. What was ubiquitous a few years ago gets replaced with something new, either to disappear forever or reappear in another context.

Cottage cheese has taken its spin around the wheel of popularity more than once, going from frugal farm food to a high-profile diet food in the 1960s, then relegated to the back of the dairy case until the recent interest in high-protein diets brought it back out of obscurity. With more protein than Greek yogurt, cottage cheese is getting a makeover by many dairy brands that now offer on-the-go cups or package it with crunchy mix-ins.
