The It's-Not-Butter Brand Blight

"Made with sweet cream BUTTERmilk"


This, of course, was only the beginning of the tsunami of NotButterBullshit.





And finally the saddest of them all....

The selling point for me is this: Does it say BUTTER? If it does, I buy it. Especially if it says PLUGRA, or if it comes from Denmark, Finland, or Ireland. In Pretzelvania, 2 pounds of rolled Amish butter sells at times for 6 bucks. It's the best butter for frying hamburgers.

My wife brought something home called "Earth Balance". That was last week, it's still in the fridge, and I am waiting to see what happens with it.

I love butter. Especially Amish roll butter. Alittle more difficult to measure out, but worth it.

Is this butter? If by butter, you mean not butter, then yes.

We grew up on Imperial. Cheap as dirt, but learned as an adult to cook with butter. I still use both with my crew. A great paradox in life, heheh.

I all the years I cooked I never fell for the margarine propaganda. I raised four big healthy human beings.

Wanna bet that most of the idiot scientists and health food fools who worked on that crap, used it all the time are now dead from everything from clogged intestines to clogged arteries.

Probably better off cooking with STPĀ®; nothing wil stick to your insides.

I wish I could find a longer clip of it, but this will have to do..."This tastes like raw suet!"

My mother swallowed the "margarine is healthier" crap when I was a kid, so that's what my sister and I grew up with. I went back to butter long ago, but Sis, the RN, still buys the chemistry set in the yellow tub. Some habits are hard to break, I guess, even when you know better.

Counterintuitively, BUTTERmilk has no butter in it.

It's what's left after all the butterfat has been removed. Great marketing gimmick, though, for all the people out there who have no idea what the word means.
