I love REAL butter but don't care for the Challenge brand. It seems tasteless to me. I get Plugra or President or Kerrygold -- for eating on bread or toast. I also like the Land o Lake european butter which I use for baking.

And yes -- the Brummel and Brown yogurt spread is suprisingly good -- we always have a tub of that in the house for my husband.

I'm not sure what looks "awful." Palm fruit and canola have some controversy w/ them, but olive and flax aren't unhealthy. Safflower, not that I've heard either.
Butter has its pluses, but it's saturated so depends on how much you use. Sat. fats have a lot of studies indicating to limit them for heart health. Moderation as in all things.
It's not bad and doesn't taste bad. I used it recently to make a vegan lentil shepherd's pie (for the mashed potatoes).

There's nothing like real butter, but if cooking vegan dishes, I use the other.

I’ll have to try Finlandia, which I saw at a local store once. Don’t know if it will be a standard item there.

My favorite of the ones I listed is Plugra unsalted. I like to add salt or herbs to taste, so the unsalted one serves well for eating as well as cooking.

Butter all the way.

I love cultured butter best of all, and use that on bread. I mostly use Organic Valley Cultured Butter, Vermont Cultured Butter, or Trader Joe’s Cultured Butter.

I keep sweet cream butter in the house because the kids prefer it. I also tend to put it in my cooking a lot. I buy usually Organic Valley, Kate’s, Cabot, or Trader Joe’s.

Once in a while I experiment with homemade butters from the Farmer’s Market.

I use European cultured unsalted butter (Echiré or Beurre d’Isigny) or make my own. It has more fat content and it's easier to spread. To me, it tastes better too.

Beurre d'Isigny is so wonderful!

I mix it around, too. Mostly olive oil, but sometimes this. I'd like to try some new oils, maybe Peanut, Safflower? W/ olive oil, you can only saute on low heat though if you're cooking w/ it.

I am always using one of thise^^^ Peanut or Safflower oil. Great for cooking!!
But I wouldn't mash potatoes with it, or pour over the corn. Some stuff taste great only with butter.
