Boy, did I lose on this one! I thought I had margarine, but it is butter? (I remember Mom telling me about putting yellow dye buttons of some sort to make the margarine turn yellow so it would look more like butter during the war when they couldn't get real butter; I didn't realize the butter was dyed as well!). I maybe got 4 out of them.
