    I have bought it here... I'm just trying to remember where. I believe it was either Famous Foods or Donald's Market on Commercial.

            its whipped so a nice light texture and economical because its so easy to spread, and it comes in a tub like margarine so if you leave it out too long its not end up all over the place, i actually did see it at donalds today for a little under the normal price of $3.99, they also carry it at save on

                I remember now, I did buy it at Buy Low. However, I only ever buy the pound blocks. $5-6 if I recall right.

          In case it wasn't just their whipped butter you were interested in(I like their cultured butter myself): http://www.foothillscreamery.com
          No "Where to Buy" on their site but I'm sure you could contact them. :)

            So there it was today, in Superstore, but apparently, according to their website, with their newest product, a half butter, half margarine spread at $3.33
