FWIW - I'm posting from Canada - Quark is available in the both the 
Safeway and the Superstore where I live (a city of about 40,000 
people). Safeway stocks it with their sour cream and cottage cheese. 
Superstore stocks it in their "specialty" cheese area (as opposed to 
cheese slices and block cheeses). I'm afraid  I can't tell you what 
it tastes like, as I don't eat dairy products. It kinda looks like 
*really* thick yoghurt - sorta spreadable?
