I don't use very many spreads, but when do it's always butter for me

I'll stick with butter. In moderation. I don't believe in fake foods of any kind.

I love using butter without the salt!

I buy a combo that is butter, olive oil, and sea salt. Love it! I don't use much, but you cannot beat butter taste.

Thank you. We will continue to use butter.

I'm sticking with butter. I made the change back several years ago after watching an episode of Good Eats that dealt with this topic. I figure that both are bad for you, but butter may be a little bit better

Enjoyed the video. Informative. We switched back to butter many years ago.

Definitely sticking with butter (in moderation of course!). All that processing for margarine is just insane.
All that time, money, resources (mis)used. When the afore mentioned could be used for something more healthy, as organic gardening.
Best to eat closer to Mother Earth, while choosing wisely. Just because something is natural does not mean it is healthy!

Information was explained very clearly.
12/30/2017 2:49:02 PM
I LOVE my butter!
12/30/2017 2:47:51 AM
I will stick with butter all natural
11/14/2017 8:03:39 PM
Always use natural over man made. Natural wins every time
