I can definitely tell a difference but really, I just can't get past the plastic, mouthfeel of margarine. It may not be healthier but I'll take the real stuff over imitation. I just try my best to search for the cheapest.

margarine -- trans fats

butter -- no trans fats

after that -- about the same

except for IMHO the better taste of butter!

I never baked with anything other than Sweet Cream unsalted butter until recently. I started using Blue Bonnett in my cookies recently due to the crazy economy and I got nothing but compliments. I used it once in a scratch Vanilla cake and it didn't bake up right for me so I have not tried it in anything else. But I love BB in my cookies and will probably use it often.

I never knew there was such a thing until I was in my late teens/ early 20's.



i grew up on margarine too and still prefer it to butter. thumbs_up.gif

I grew up in 2 separate worlds. My mother used margarine in and on everything. When I was at my grandparents, nothing but butter. They had a cow, we churned it fresh. I always preferred butter, it could be that my grandmother was just the better cook! icon_lol.gif

Sweet butter is butter with no salt and it doesn't have much flavor. It's nice to use in cooking because you can better control the salt in your food. It is also higher quality product because they can't hide any off flavors with salt. Salted butter is what most people are used to.. and if I cam going to butter toast.. it's with salted butter.

I can't stand the overly salty, fake butter flavor of margarine. Give me good ole' butter anyday. My mom used margarine a lot when we were little, but I only bake with sweet butter.

Grew up on both. Dirt poor. Butter on G-pa's farm.
Margarine on a good day. Mostly catsup bread.
So yes, there were other poor kids in this world.

Would rather have butter than margarine.

Ahhhhh butter is better.....

Butter is "...the most delicate of foods among barbarous nations, and one which distinguishes the wealthy from the multitude at large."
Pliny


âGood bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.âJames Beard (1903-1985)

âBread, milk and butter are of venerable antiquity. They taste of the morning of the world.âLeigh Hunt (1784-1859), 'The Seer'

"Eat butter first, and eat it last, and live till a hundred years be past."
Old Dutch proverb

It took me years to figure out that you don't fall into a tub of butter, you jump for it. Claudette Colbert

Ah..... the memories of childhood! icon_biggrin.gif

I didn't like ketchup samitches, but I loved mayo/miracle whip samitches with or without tomatoes.

We weren't well off when I was little either.. but mom always made sure we ate well.. evenit it had margarine on it.. icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif

I love real butter though.. nothing better on toast with strawberry jam.

What I also find funny is that.. back in the day.. butter churned on the farm and freshly collected eggs were "poor food".. but today.. you pay a premium for it. Go figure..
