Tasty stuff!

I cant say I use butter all that much except to slather on a nice piece of toast, however that does not mean I dont want it to be healthy! Being a Bzzagent I got a free tub of Flora Buttery - the perfect opportunity to give it a go after seeing all the adverts on the tv! Flora Buttery means I get the great taste of butter without the immediate guilt! Its so easy to spread straight from the fridge which I see as a huge positive - quick and easy. Definitely will be purchasing Flora Buttery from now on.

Perfectly Spreadable

I love my butter, there is nothing better than a hot jacket potato oozing with some tasty country butter, but with the waist-line and medical checks butter is a very special treat nowadays. Flora Buttery is certainly a great alternative. I have always like the Flora brand, right back to the good old days with the round tabs. Being a BzzAgent I got the opportunity to try this product for free in return for open and honest word or mouth about the product. Oddly when I first tasted Flora Buttery, I would not have been able to identify the difference between it and normal butter. In fact I would say that that it was closer to butter than the normal Flora taste. It is creamy, smooth taste and soft to spread. Which gives it an edge over other spreads that remain hard and rip apart your soft sliced bread. Even straight from the fridge it is very spreadable. It has a foil lid inside to keep it , it has the taste of butter but without all the bad stuff. It is made with seed oils and contains Omega 3 & 6. I really like Flora Buttery, the price is ok, a little more expensive than some of the other spread, but has a better taste, and it is cheaper than other butters, but is more healthy. So at the end of the day it is a win win situation.

Tastes great but less calories would be better

Butter is a big thing in our house... There's usually about 5 tubs in the fridge at all times, due to different members of the family preferring different spreads. Lately my mum hasn't used anything other than Kerrymaid, my dad uses Golden Olive & I used to use Golden Cow but I switched to I Can't Believe Its Not Butter Light as its nutritionally better for you, with a lot less fat than normal butter. I was delighted when i got the chance to try Flora Buttery for free as a Bzzagent. When I brought it into the house we were surprised at how good it tasted & how much it tasted like actual butter. I honestly wouldn't be able to tell that its not the real thing. I mostly use butter on toasted sandwiches, toasted muffins, croissants and crackerbread. I've used a whole tub now and it really does taste great, especially on muffins. Its very spreadable straight from the fridge, which is good when making sandwiches as other spreads are so hard that you end up digging into the bread and making holes. My mum loves it aswell... She made me cupcakes for my birthday with it and they were delicious! There is one downside. I thought I would check the nutritional values against the other spreads in my fridge, and I was surprised at what I found. On the tub of Flora Buttery says that it has 70% less saturated fat than butter, so you would think that it would be best choice for the family in helping to maintain a healthy cholesterol level. But Golden Olive & I Can't Believe Its Not Butter Light actually came out on top, and Kerrymaid third place, with Flora Buttery actually having MORE fat and MORE calories than the others! I couldn't believe it. I'm not the most healthy eater but I would tend to gravitate towards products with less calories to try and keep my figure, especially if I can't taste much difference. In saying that theres not a MAJOR nutritional difference, so I think i'll probably stick to my normal spread, but buy Flora Buttery whenever its on offer.

A nice alternative to butter and normal spreads.

I got to try this through BzzAgent and having never been a fan of spreads before - I have to say its pretty good. A nice butter-ish taste that goes lovely on toast or as a spread for a sandwich. Will definitely be getting this again.

Flora Buttery Not Sure

Tried this product because I'm a buzz agent and would prefer to use lower fat/cholesterol versions of butter. However, I used it for mashed potatoes and toast, but to be honest, I'm not a fan of it for those purposes. The mashed potatoes there's no buttery taste and the colour isn't as nice looking as using real butter on the potatoes. When baking I made a chocolate cake and chocolate frosting with it and for baking purposes it's great to use as there doesn't need to be any buttery taste as such. In short I will buy again but only for baking purposes in replace of margarine.
