Take a look at stassi's location, gto. She's in New Zealand, which is where you say the butter comes from.

I'm in the U.S. and have never seen anything like it. And, as Andy M. commented, it seems a bit costly, almost 7 dollars per pound. The grocery store ad in my paper today has a 1-pound package of butter on sale for 2 dollars. I will buy several packages and freeze them.

Wow, good price for butter, Katie. I pay about 70 pesos (just under $7 USD) for a kilo of butter. That's about $3.14 a pound.

Life would be bleak without butter. When I was first married (first time) in the 1960s, I had a decorative plate on my kitchen wall that said "Food should be cooked with butter and love." Of course, it got lost or broken many years ago, but it is still true.

Sounds like something Julia Child would say, bless her heart.

Butter is and can be "canned", but it has to be a good quality like "Land-O-Lakes" otherwise it separates and gets nasty. Yes, I guess it is a survivalist thing, but also great if you can food for some future disaster. What is food without butter?

Well, the New Zealand butter I can buy here is of very high quality. Good good stuff. And to answer your question, mcnerd - one word: "grim". But I guess if we missed a few meals, we'd probably be happy to eat our food almost any way at all - LOL.

Nope, as has been pointed out, I'm in New Zealand.

It's interesting that someone commented on the butter shortage in Japan - the tins I have are covered in Aisian writing (I'm afraid I'm not sure which language). Maybe this is something new in response to those problems?

I haven't opened one yet - I should do that.

Here we go... I opened some and took a picture. Tastes fine - just like 'normal' butter.

If there's a disaster and I have to eat canned food, I doubt if I'll be troubled by going without butter.

Like Katie said, you can freeze butter and it wil last for a very long time.
