Hee Hee! I thought so too! It wasn't until I was in collage and I ate a Wendy's burger. I said "What on earth is it that makes these burgers taste SO good!?!" I figured it was some restaurant secret ingredient. Little did I know that was real mayo and that the average person could just go buy it at the grocery store! Miracle Whip is DISGUSTING!! MMMMM mayo.......

As far as the butter argument goes, as a kid I preferred margarine. It seemed to have more buttery taste than butter(ironic, eh?). Once I'd heard that the trans fat in margarine was more damaging to your heart than real butter, I've never had margarine again. It's probably been a good 15 years since I last had margarine.

Indydebi you were not alone I came from a home of 8 children with a single Mom after my Dad walked out. I don't think I knew butter until after I got married, I love butter for some odd reason. I only use butter in all my cookies. Guess it all depends on personal taste .

Fun to see this old thread resurrected again. Me? I use nothing but butter in everything. Growing up was a different story as all my mother used was margarine. Someone awhile back remembered having to add the yellow coloring...I remember sitting on the kitchen counter as a little girl, squeezing and squeezing the yellow pellet of coloring into the white margarine. It was illegal in California at that time to sell yellow margarine. But I absolutely loved butter. The only times I got to eat it was when eating out in a restaurant where I'd surreptitiously gather all the little pats left on the table as we left!

 

Once grown and having a family cow with all the cream I could use, I made my own butter. (Incidentally, sweet cream butter has nothing to do with salted/unsalted. Sweet cream butter is made from fresh cream. Otherwise, cream was left to sour slightly before churning. You can't really do that with pasturized cream which kills off the beneficial bacteria thats lends such a good flavor.) 

 

I love butter so much that I think I could enjoy a butter sandwich, no, not buttered bread but a thick slab of cold butter. Well, that is a little extreme. But in the comparison 'tween the two, butter wins---hands down!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

The melting point of butter is between 90°F and 95°F (32°C and 35°C).  The melting point of margarine is just slightly warmer, at 94°F to 98°F (34°C to 37°C).

It occurs to me that what ever you grew up with and got used to is what tastes best. I grew up on a farm. Never had margerine in the house until I was like 5 years old and then we no longer had a milk cow. Never tasted store bought milk until then, either. So at first I couldn't stand of the taste of homogenized anything. But I'm so sorry whenever I hear someone who never grew up like this talk about natural, unprocessed things as tasting "vile" or "nasty". Margerine is a man-made substitute for butter. Nothing man-made can really duplicate the taste of something natural exactly, but that was the intention. But it's all a matter of individual preference.

Hello Chutzpah!

I love the quotes! Yes, butter is definitely better.............on bread, and to cook with, and to bake with!

It is a paradox, isn't it? Growing up poor and raising your own food and eating it probably made you healthier and live longer!
