Plugra Butter Blues
I'm still mourning the loss of my Plugra butter at Trader Joe's. It was only $3.29/pound which is super-cheap.
Does anyone know where else I can purchase the 1 lb., unsalted bars in the red wax paper at a good price?
I bake a lot and go through TONS of the stuff.
Thanks for your help!

Cabot is making an 83% butter that is supposed to be the same. Just came out, so don't know everywhere it is yet.
I too was bummed out to see Plugra had disappeared from the store shelves. Here's the reply I got from TJ's on this matter:
Thanks for contacting us. We have discontinued that product in our stores due to slow sales. Because our stores have such limited space, if an item does not meet a minimum sales volume, we will discontinue it in order to bring in something we think will sell better. I will pass your comments on to our buyers for consideration. From time to time, if there is enough outcry to bring back a discontinued item and we are able to do
so, we will give it another run.
