The butter was probably memorable because of what it was ON. It was your honeymoon after all.

Thinking what? I was merely referring to the delicious pastries at Bellagio.

Funny you mentioned BB - I grew up on it too in Missouri and it's still widely available where I live now in MO. Some people go crazy over their ice cream, I could take it or leave it. But I will agree with you on the milk, it just is better. You'd think IL would have it since it at least close to IA! There is a local dairy where I live and the milk is far superior than like Wal-Mart's store brand, or any store brand for that matter. It just tastes stale to me.

No reason to be sorry about disagreement. Happens all the time

As I said earlier, there may be slight differences in taste, but the butters will meat quality standards to acheive the AA ratings.

I think you are way off base bringing wine, coffee and cheese into the discussion. Apples and oranges.
