Thanks for your replies. I never tried Costco's butter but most likely it comes in a large quantity, which won't work for me but I will check it out when I go next time. And lots of people mentioned Kerry Butter. I have seen it but never tried it. And I have never heard of or seen the brand Challenger. I looked at Earth Balance and Smart Balance but they both have that pea protein in it too, which does not sound appetizing.

It comes as four one-pound boxes wrapped together. Each box has four sticks just like any other pound of butter. (Costco also sells butter in sets of four one-pound blocks; I don't buy those). I open the package, put one box in the refrigerator and the other three in the freezer where it lasts forever. Well, it doesn't last forever in my house but butter freezes perfectly for a long, long time.

Costco has the best price on butter that I have seen anywhere so if price is at all an issue and you have the storage space, it's worth it.

OP, have you tried Brummel’s yogurt-based spread? It tastes surprisingly good, not too yogurty.
That's usually our go-to. .

I prefer to use the higher butterfat style butter like Finlandia, Kerrygold, or Land O' Lakes Euro-style for bread, sandwiches, or anything where you really taste the butter. Also for baking anything that should taste buttery in the final product like pastry.

I have some conventional, usually store brand, butter for other cooking purposes as its flavor is fine in cooked goods. But for the fresh taste and smooth consistency, I prefer the higher butterfat of European style butters.

Yes. If I'm going to grease a pan, I don't care what brand it is.

Kerrygold, the Irish brand of grass-fed butter, unsalted or salted.

Salted only here, for baking I can't tell a difference and I prefer the convenience.
Salted only for us as well, but as for Aldi's I don't think it has much flavor. WE too usually use it as I said earlier.
