      It's called "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter." Obviously it's not butter, or the name of the product would be "I Can't Believe It's Butter." Here are the ingredients:

            Other products by the same company:

            I Can't Believe It's Not Lard (use to make tamales and tortillas)
            I Can't Believe It's Not Meat (vegan spray on meat flavoring)
            I Cant Believe It's Not Soup (a box of liquid detergent that smells like matzo ball soup)
            I Can't Believe It's Not Squirrel (tofu shaped roadkill, also avaliable in moose)
            I Can't Believe I Bought This (an empty box that retails for 2.99)

            This rather hilarious thread reminds me of that now infamous remark about Chicken of the Sea.
