    Like it ...

    And in our house it's butter every-time. Favourite butter is Kerrygold - but as it's slightly more expensive then some others - I only buy it when it's on special offer,

    So guys and girls if you see it on 'special offer' any where - do please let me know - thanks

    All the best Jan

    Agree on the Kerrygold. 

    Has anyone else noticed a recent change? There almost always used to be at least one brand of butter on special offer, which I'd often buy to ring the changes. Now I need to buy some more, but not immediately, there isn't. I'll have a closer look when I go back and see if there are any/many special offers on margarine - not because I intend to buy any but it might suggest customer choice is turning back to butter.

    Is there any truth in the rumour they are doing a vegan remake of Last Tango In Paris using Flora?

    Most supermarkets have their own brand butter usually priced at under £1-00.

    A friend tells me that Iceland currently have Kerrygold at £1-25 ... shame I'm not near an Iceland!

    How about making your own herb butter ... delicious

    things are definitely changing regards to butter, just this week i saw a thing on Facebook saying how marj is just one molecule away from plastic, and to put some outside and see that not even the flies with go on it etc etc

    i made butter from cows milk when i was younger, i stayed (was sent) to a farm in devon, widdicombe on the moor, how cool is that name, where i milked cows and all that, i made some butter, it was amazing even then, i love the stuff, we were brought up on margarine, never ever had butter in the house, i think my folks believed it was healthier

    It always tickled me when that margarine called "I Can't Believe it's Not Butter" came out. Why not just buy butter ? In fact, I may go on Dragon's Den and bring out a butter called "I can't believe it's not marg" !!!!!

    I went looking for the ingredients of that gruel, I gave up. Sainsbury's are giving it away free. 100% made from plants, GM canola oil I suspect. Unilever just can't stop flogging axle grease in the name of food.

    We used Stork once but I don't recommend it, she was standing on one leg for a while afterwards.

    And on the subject of silly jokes, I recall back in the day when jokes were circulated by fax, or by van driver and photocopier, a list of silly quiz answers.

    "Naomi Campbell"
