which brand of butter do you buy?

I usually get what's on sale. But now I tried Kerrygold Irish butter and I am not looking back. I am going to start trying them all! LOL! Which ones do you like?

  1. Kerrygold (Irish), Lurpak (Danish) or Anchor (NZ) - all sell in London at around the same price point, with Lurpak probably being the most expensive by around 20p.

      In Mexico local butter is too different than what a Canadian is used to. So it's Anchor or Lurpak. But Lurpack is typically 30-40% more expensive.

    2. Falfurrias Unsalted.

      A local brand to Texas. Part of Keller Dairies, (Borden, Plugra, etc.).

      Always fresh and creamy.

      1. Keller's all my life. However, I recently discovered Cabot's so when I see that brand I go there now (not widely available in my area). Although we get Kerrygold cheese in my area, I've never seen their butter.

          Kellers here as well, but I haven't tried Cabot's yet. I'll give that one a shot if it costs the same.

        2. Jersey butter from the farmer's market
          Organic Pastures (raw)
          Organic Valley (grass fed)

          1. Organic Valley cultured butter

              Me, too. Always nice and fresh, and no added hormones.

                I really like that as well. I wish I could find it unsalted though.

                  The cultured butter in the gold wrapper is unsalted. Unfortunately, the green wrapper/pastured butter is always salted in my stores.
