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)

Quoting momof2gingers:

I have to have Country Crock

Yep.  Country Crock is all we buy for home.  I'll eat something else if we're somewhere else and there's no other choice, though.

I only use real butter but I don't care what brand it is. I will usually buy the store brand.

I cook with butter. or olive oil. but for the kids and sandwiches and stuff I prefer becel. I'd use butter if it didn't go against food safe precautions to keep it soft.

The cheapy no brand name of margarine.  We only use Butter in this house for baking.  No there is no difference in taste from the generic or the name brand, it is in your head.

We used to use Country Crock, but Imperial is so much cheaper so that's what I buy now.

I eat ONLY butter.  Sometimes, I will cook with palm oil or coconut oil too.  Olive oil for frying.   Butter is different from brand to brand too! My fave "ordinary" brand is Land o lakes.. especially their non salted one..ooo that is sooooo good. That one is for my bread and bagels.

Margarine is very very bad for you.   It's  hydrogenated.. have you read about it?  Trans fats are quite bad for us.
