  1. Whole Foods has it in Milwaukee. I am guessing that it has it in Chicago...... I recently used it for a yummy truffle mac n cheese!!

      Anywhere else? I think they sell it at a pretty expensive price at Whole Food ( I know I know it is truffle butter). I try looking at costco and fresh farm but no luck. I actually see something call truffle something near the butter and cheese section at costco but it is not call butter

    2. OK, I see you want it pre-made, but goodness it's easy to make yourself. You just drizzle a little truffle oil into softened butter. Add some minced truffle, if you have any, but that's optional. Season with more salt, if you like. Chill again, if you want.

      1. Living in Old Town I immediately thought of:

        The Spice House ( for truffles (they grind up their own truffles fresh for their truffle salt... truly amazing


        and Old Town Oil ( next door for truffle oil GenkiTango said - it's easy to make yourself. By the way - highly recommend these shops for all sorts of yum.
