Anybody know if this product is still being made & who carries it? Kind of a retro product but still nice on toasted breads.

    I know this is an older post. I want to mention two things.
    Dad remembers this from the 1950s
    Check today's Globe and Mail. There is an article on this www.theglobeandmail.com/life/food-and...
    It is still available but from a different company - Downey's and in both plain and cinnamon.

      Heck, *I* remember it from the 1950s. I used to love the stuff (preferably the cinnamon). I'll look out for the Downey's.

          I saw it at the Foodlands at Pape and Danforth. Regular and cinnamon.

      That takes me way back. My dad was a honey butter addict, and we always had some in my home. I remember when McFeeters came in cardboard drum containers. Later they switched to plastic tubs, and, sadly, like the other posters I haven't seen the product for 20 years or more.

        I think I remember this stuff. Would also be very curious about a local source..

          I got curious about this product after my first post over five years ago. I looked into it. While I can't remember the specifics any more, I do recall that I was certain that the product is not being made any longer.

          I've been buying honey butter at farmer's markets.

            Denninger's often stocks honey butter in the Hamilton/Burlington/Guelph area...

            I loved this product -still have containers - mfg by Agropur Montreal-Nord , PQ. H1G5W9 - but have not seen for at least 10 years. Another company -Munro Honey in Alvinston ON makes honey butter -but not even close to MacFeeters! I have looked everywhere for it!

              I haven't thought of it for years, but now I'm craving it! I hope that some Chowhound knows of a source for it....
