Best spreadable butter

I like to keep my butter in the fridge as I don't like it really soft, when it goes a bit oily.

The few proper butters that are spreadable (M&S) aren't really spreadable - I want something that you can spread on bread out of the fridge.

I never have my reading glasses when shopping & I can't read the tiny writing to see the % of real butter to look for the best of the rest.

Does anyone know the most buttery of the diary spreads?

    Butter is Butter (usually made from milk from Cows milk)

    Spreads are manufactured in a factory. (And are made from the Lord only knows)
    I used to be indecisive but now I am not sure.

    Spreadable butter is messed about with butter - not butter


    Do as I do. Cut just a small amount of butter of the block and put it in the dish, not the whole block My kitchen is not heated 24/7 so it never goes oily and even in the summer months it's fine as you use it before it's had time to go oily
  • I find the Aldi butter spreads nicely if left out. Some butters re just too hard even at room temperature.

    Lurpak for spreadability IME but its taste is incredibly bland but although slightly less spreadable, Grahams spreadable has by far the better taste. M&S etc don't come hear them.

    However if butter can last years when rolled in salt and buried, then you don't really need to keep it in the firdge.
  • Have you tried kerrygold spreadable? it's only available in some supermarkets...i know sainsburys definitely sell it. It's pure butter, no additives but somehow it's softer. Definitely try it out if you haven't done so already.
  • Lurpak unsalted is my favourite.

    Another vote here for Kerrygold spreadable. It can also be found in some branches of Tesco. It isn't particularly cheap but well worth it you like real butter

    I'd put in a second vote for Grahams, it actually tastes more like butter and less like margarine in disguise.
    Signature on hold as I've seen no unused witty comments to plaigarise.

    I make my own using whatever butter I've bought plus lots of sunflower oil whizzed in a food processor. Obviously its not pure butter but neither are most spreadable versions.
    somewhere between Heaven and Woolworth's
