I caved in and bought some after reading so much about it on here. My thinking was butter is butter, how can one be too much better. I love it, it's absolutely delish, I can eat it straight! I buy it at Costco, it's like $6 for 1.5 lbs.

I love it. It has a more intense butter flavor than Land o' Lakes or similar. Even my 10-year-old noticed when I ran out of KG and used LoL on his toast. He said "this butter tastes like nothing."

I'm not going to wax poetic about butter, but I think it's well worth the cost.

Linda for me and another couple of posters it's not about the flavor but the
fact that grass fed butter and meat is healthier.

Ditto! I can't taste the difference but if makes the belly fat go away, I'll spend the extra money.

I'm aware that grass fed is a healthier option, I just don't put too much thought into it. As long as I'm eating LC, I feel better. There are just too many things that are healthy/unhealthy, whatever for me to follow. I simplify by eating whatever dh buys! He's much more in tune to health advantages, if I start thinking about it too much I get confused with all the info, maybe I'm a simpleton though!

I can't speak to how the KG compares to organic butter but it is much creamier and has much more flavor than the white tasteless butter I have used in the past.

I can tell the difference between Kerrygold and regular organic butter. But I use Kerrygold mostly because the difference between European style and American style butter - European style butters are higher in butterfat. And I'm all about the butterfat.

I'm not low carb anymore, but keep seeing KG butter references, so I finally caved and bought some. DH, DD8, and I all tried in and loved it immediately. We still have some of our other butter in the fridge and nobody will touch it. There's definitely a difference in taste and texture. My local grocery store had both the softer, spreadable KG and the blocks, so I got one of each to try. I'll absolutely buy it again.

We don't have kg here but we do haveanchor which is roughly 2x the cost of regular butter. There's a gigantic difference and with it!

Ouch! Kerrygold is my favourite but it's on par with the prices of most other branded butters here (Lurpak, Anchor, Countrylife, etc...) The supermarket own version is only a few pence cheaper as well.

Branded butters are generally £1.60 a pack but more often than not, at least one of them will be on a 2 for £2.50 deal... when it's Kerrygold I stock up.

Any good ideas how to take a tablespoon or 2 of it with you if you go out to eat?

I've been known to take a little butter (and/or mayo!) out in a mini tupperware box... tin foil even does the trick in a pinch.

I buy both Kerrygold and Land o' Lakes. Kerrygold goes in the butter dish to spread on toast, where a pronounced butter flavor is important.

I cook with LoL.
