Butter, the whole butter, and nothing but the butter. Margarine is for Great Depression and World War II era survivors.

The Smart Balance is a spread like margerine but helps reduce cholesteral no trans fat and it has a great butter flavor.

Butter all the way, when I'm not using olive oil. I don't even buy margarine anymore, which disappoints my stepfather. I guess I could buy a small tub for him, since it lasts forever

Most definitely butter. I tried Smart Balance. James thought it was okay, but to me it didn't really taste like anything, and it just felt greasy in my mouth. I try not to eat it too often, but I love butter!

Butter. More versatile and useful.

Plus with the transfats in margarine you may as well use shortening.

Well, a good margarine like Country Crock that has no Trans Fat is actually better for you than butter. It has less calories, less saturated fat, and no trans fat.
