Advantages: Great buttery taste, easy to spread.
Flora buttery tastes just like real butter.
It's definitely my favourite spread as far as the taste goes, but there are other things about it that ensure I buy it again and again.
It's the most easily spreadable butter I've ever used, even straight from the fridge.
It has omega's 3 and 6.
It is more often than not on some sort of offer in the supermarkets.
It's perfect for baking with and cooking with because of its lovely buttery taste and soft texture.
It is suitable for vegetarians.
It is freezable.
And that's to name a few.
Flora buttery comes in a 500ml tub and costs around £1.50 in supermarkets, though more often than not it is on offers such as '2 for £2' and 'B.O.G.O.F' so I'd definitely snap a couple up while they are because even if you don't use a lot of butter/margarine, I mentioned before it is in fact freezable.
It spreads straight from the fridge and you do not need to use much as it has a very strong buttery taste. I'm not usually a fan of toast but I am when I have flora buttery to spread onto it.
It is ideal for baking with also. I do a lot of home baking these days, and because of its 'Rich Buttery Taste' (as they mention on the tub) it makes perfect cakes that taste somehow sweeter but are really nice and light and fluffy.
I sometimes use it for frying chicken with as well, as the chicken really absorbs it and tastes so buttery and delicious - especially good when mixed into pasta!

The only other thing I can really say about this product is that it is a winner. The only bad thing I can find in this product is the fat content, but it's not a low fat spread so it can only be expected.
Summary: if you want a good value, easily spreadable, lovely tasting spread, go for Flora Buttery!
