Price of butter in Buffalo?
I always stop by Walmart (or Walgreens, Tops) when I go to Buffalo. I bake alot and like the butter in the USA as they cut and package it in sticks. In Toronto, it costs between $5-7!
1. Can anyone tell me how much a block of butter (cut and wrapped in 4 sticks) costs (approx)? I plan to buy a lot to freeze.
2. I'm not sure what the more popular (best) brands are (I'm thinking Land O'Lakes)?
3. Which grocery store is relatively cheaper?
Not sure if there is a Hannaford in Buffalo, but, if there is, their house label is (big secret) actually Land of Lakes. I once worked for a local Hannaford, and the manager confessed. In my eastern NY locality, Land of Lakes labeled butter usually tops out at about $4.99 a pound of four wrapped sticks, but often is put on sale for less than that. Hannaford's version, same packaging but with a different label, sells somewhere between $2.50 on sale to normally $2.99 or a little over that. I tend to stick exclusively to either Hannaford, or its more expensive clone, Land of Lakes for my cooking. Unsalted, of course.
