Yea I know this is probably an odd thread even for the off topic forum, but does anyone know if you can buy this seperately at a supermarket somewhere?

I've been trying to find it for ages

Ah, excuse me... Why not buy real butter, or for a bit more even imported Danish butter (yummy). They even have an organic spreadable butter.

I mean actual butter, not a white whipped cream type of thing?

Oh yes, personal preferences...

Preferences indeed... lol

Having said that, I'm a person of relatively simple tastes so the subtlties of imported Danish butter would likely be wasted on me anyway.

But judging by the lack of responses my search for whipped butter may be in vain so perhaps its time to expand my tasting horizons eh Mauricio?

I've tried those McDonald's butter a couple of years ago. They don't taste like butter - they actually didn't have any taste. You don't need to import butter though - I was just giving the example that it's probably easier to find real butter than the whipped cream ones.

The New Zealand butter is quite tasty... And give me butter over "spread" or "margarine" anytime.

Butter tastes nice, but its apparently very unhealthy in any dose.

McDonalds whipped butter is indeed pretty tasteless.

We use polyunsaturated table spread, and not a lot of it.

I'm definitely the odd one out here, I quite like the taste of the McDonalds stuff.

Then again, this is from a guy who during a brief career as a barman a few years ago, tried to advise a customer against buying a glass of red wine because "we forgot to put it in the fridge overnight"

I think NokiaRocks has the right idea, I'll try whipping my own butter.
