Lurpak Slightly Salted Spreadable
Advantages: It is ok for cooking with
Disadvantages: Salty, not very creamy and very oily and doesn't spread easy if straight from the fridge
I love butter but it really is a rarity that I will purchase it. However my flatmate did the other day and to see spreadable lightly salted butter that is meant to be spreadable turn up literally delighted me!
White and silver coloured tub with a lift on/off lid to the top of it and on the lid and to two sides of the tub I am told that it is Lurpak (with a coat of arms shown) Spreadable, Slightly Salted 'Lurpak Butter 'Blended With Vegetable Oil' and the size is stated which in this case is 500g. Other information on the tub includes being told a bit about the product, a nutritional chart is shown, ingredients are given (I'm told that it is suitable for Vegetarians) and contact details for Arle Foods Ltd (the manufacturer of the product are given). There is a small plastic 'lip' to the lid for ease of opening and a pull off foil to protect the butter included too.

Contains no hydrogenated fats or oils
Packaging not suitable for microwave.
The Butter Itself:
Light yellow in colour, I was surprised by the lightness colourwise of this butter. Smooth and slightly greasy in appearance, providing this isn't stored in the fridge it really is spreadable though after being in the fridge I feel that although it isn't as hard to spread on bread etc as other butters I have used in the past it really is a struggle....still!
The taste of though is ok. To me again it is rather greasy as it is really blended with vegetable oils so isn't as creamy as I would like and I can taste mainly oil. However it is gently salted and not too much so though you can taste that flavour added. I didn't only use this on toast and sandwiches and the like, I did shallow fry with a little of this too and this is where it came in handy. Cooking with butter can be tricky as on its own it will burn but this is already pre blended with oil and so is fine and I did use some of this in some plain scones though to me it made them a bit too salty so do be careful in what you put this into and if the recipe recommends salt, personally I would leave it out as this provides quite a lot flavourwise.
Spreadablish .....yes though to me a bit too greasy and a bit too salty and I appreciate a butter more churned and creamy however it isn't awful or anything!
