Default Poll: Margarine or butter?

Thought this might be an interesting topic. My room mate did some shopping for me, and I requested 3 lbs. of butter. So...that's what I got--3 bricks. Had I been more specific, and requested a "tub" of butter, then she probably would have brought back a container of MARGARINE.

I use them interchangeably, without thinking. What about you?

While butter does taste better, I try to use a healthier version of margarine. But on those rare occasions when we have crab legs, forget it, bring on the butter!

Don't use margarine. Butter only, but in moderation

I remember years ago reading a Donna Aston book about diet and she went into detail about how they make margarine. I've never eaten it since.

I don't always have butter but I NEVER have margarine.

I use other "spreads" and flavourings like low fat cream cheese, tzatziki, lemon juice, avocado, chutney, relish, and hommus in sandwiches or on vegetables.

Generally I only have butter on toast.

Butter only. Margarine is nothing but lard.

Margarine is not lard.

Margarine is hydrogenated vegetable oil with artificial color, flavor, and chemical preservatives.
