Tesco Value Butter
Advantages: Mega cheap; Spreads ok now it's out of the fridge
Disadvantages: A bit of a weird thin greasy flavour
My mum tried to be a bit crafty last week, she brought a block of this Value Butter from Tesco and put it into the butter dish without the wrapper on to see if anyone would notice the difference. I don't eat a lot of butter so wasn't bothered anyway but she deffo fooled everyone else in the house! lol
It costs about 70p for a 250g block and personally I could tell that it was cheap butter because it's got quite a greasy pale look to it.
It's mega hard to spread straight out of the fridge and we ended up taking it out and putting the butter dish out in the kitchen to save the stress of trying to spread rock hard cold butter onto fresh bread! I think it was my dad who sussed it out for being Value butter first because he usually has Lurpak and he could tell from the spreading that this was cheapo.
I had some on toast last night and it was nice, it tasted like any other butter to me really but I reckon it deffo needed a bit more salt in it. It's weird because I was expecting the butter to be madly salty with it being so cheap but it's completely the opposite and needs more!
The texture is a bit more runny greasy than other brands I've had, that doesn't make sense I know but every mouth full of toast I could feel a thin grease in my mouth. That went pretty much as soon as it happened but it's a weird feeling and I wasn't mad keen on it.
I can't see why you'd not like the taste of this butter because it's just the same as most other butters, the difference is that is hasn't got such a creamy texture to it but at the end of the day butter is butter and I can't never tell what's a creamy brand and what isn't! lol
This would be a wicked purchase for people who do a lot of baking because your cooking will deffo turn out better using proper butter (even if it's mega cheap!!!) than a spread.
Recommended... sort of, if you like butter that is!!!
Summary: 70p For A Pack Of Butter..... Bargain!!!
