My sister says my BIL (her hubby) and I are weird because we are both very picky about our butter/margerine.

BIL refuses margerine, will only eat butter.

While I refuse butter and all brands of margerine except Imperial.  It has to be Imperial or I don't want it.

She says we're nuts and will get the nasty cheap no name brand *gag*


So, is there a difference?  

WHo is right, my sister or my BIL and me?

Kaaaaat! You're wrong! (but so am I apparently if you read the replies so it' ok)

butter all tastes the same to me

Quoting HistoryNutty:

I have to have Imperial too, if I'm buying margarine. If I'm buying butter, I get... Well, I don't remember. It's been a while since we bought butter. -_-

It does to me too, but its more a sentimental thing... I think it has a moose on it... Challenge Butter, my mom would buy it.

There is a difference in taste between grass fed and finished dairy products and coventional dairy products just as there is a difference between free roaming/small farm eggs and conventional.

Quoting Queen_Bree:

Butter only. I don't care what BRAND.  I don't believe there is a difference is basic staple products such as eggs, milk, butter and cheese for the most part. 

But margerine.. YUCK... I think there is a difference in taste from brand to brand since it isnt a natural food. 

Please stop eating margerine... it is SO bad for you.

I used to only buy Parkay for baking and Shedd Spread for toast.

Somewhere along the way, probably some book I read, I switched over to butter only. Now, I use only butter and olive oil. I even make my own spread for toast by mixing the two.

To answer the question, those of us with super tastebuds (so says my dh about me) CAN taste the difference between brands. It DOES make a difference.

I use olivio organic coconut spread, as i'm allergic to dairy. I buy only real butter for the rest of my family though. Sam's Club brand, but I'll but another brand if I have too.
