On a completely different note. Just for kicks. Just like conservatives are better than liberals, butter is better than margarine. (I just had to throw that in there).
I am a butter fan. Butter tastes better than margarine. I don’t care how much the margarine manufacturers claim that margarine tastes like butter, they’re full of crap.
Butter is more expensive, but I give less than a damn about that one. Butter tops margarine in everything, including health wise. The crap that the margarine people spout is for the most part not true.
Butter just tastes better to me.

Monday, January 2nd, 2012 | From: Food and RecipesWhy Butter’s Better For many years, a major rift has divided this country. I’m not talking about urban versus rural, or even Democrat versus Republican. The split I’m talking about is the ongoing clash between butter and margarine.
Growing up, I’m not sure I was very aware of the difference. My mother bought and used margarine almost exclusively – a residual, most likely, of her lean 1940s upbringing. It didn’t matter much to me; I was used to it, and we all just called it “butter,” anyway.
Over the years, though, I began to notice the butter served at my grandmother’s house on holidays was a lot tastier than the stuff mom spread on my morning toast. Eventually, I came to understand the difference, and began to look forward to my rare encounters with real butter.
Though mom still uses margarine in her kitchen, I’ve been a committed butter convert for years, and have never looked back. Call me extravagant or reckless, but at my house there is just no substitute for the real thing, and for plenty of reasons.
