Lidl Danpak Spreadable Butter 500g 79p this weekend usually £1.59

£0.79 @ LIDL
Lidl's own spreadable butter usually £1.59 is 79p on 11th and 12th Feb. I like Lurpak usually but hate paying full price so tried this a while back and was pleasantly surprised. Not quite as creamy …

Not quite as creamy as Lurpak but the ingredients aren't that different and for this price it's worth seeing if you like it.

like with any other 'spreadable butter', how can you make them spreadable without mixing with oil?
#5
Do they have the "unsalted" version od Danepak in Lidl?

I think most people are aware by now that this is how it is made spreadable - and why it is cheaper than ordinary butter. You can make your own by whizzing half butter and half rapeseed oil in your food processor - haven't tried it myself but have read a number of articles where it is suggested. Mind you, it's not worth the bother when you can buy it this cheaply.

Regardless, I don't think such products should be permitted to use the word "butter".

I cut off the butter I need and pop it in the microwave. You soon get the hang of the timing. :D

Kerrygold Softer Butter (NOT Kerrygold Spreadable) will spread straight from the fridge, and is 100% pure butter.

Well, if you're going to be picky.......
One of your own prev posts is for Waitrose ALL Butter shortbread

Ingredients

FORTIFIED WHEAT FLOUR (wheat flour, calcium carbonate, iron, niacin, thiamin), SALTED BUTTER (29%) (butter (milk), salt), sugar, BELGIAN DARK CHOCOLATE (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, emulsifier soya lecithin, flavouring), DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, emulsifier soya lecithin, flavouring), salt, raising agent ammonium hydrogen carbonate

29% butter.......





Yes, 29% Butter- (not 20% vegetable fat and 9% butter). The fat used is butter, only butter. That is what by meant by the term "All Butter".

Where did you see that price at Tesco? Their website quotes £1.70 for 250g block butter or £3.25 for 500g spreadable - 2 for £5.

Butter content (64%) in lurpak spreadable

so a bargain the LIDL version at this price as far as I'm concerned.

Lurpak is 64% so not too bad.

They aren't. The product is labelled rather anonymously as 'Spreadable'

500g of Lurpak is never better that 2 quid on offer. Danpak is £1.59 for 500g and an incredible 79p this weekend ! If only you could freeze butter...will be buying 6 instead of 26

I have never had a problem freezing Lurpak spreadable. Once defrosted, I have noticed no difference in taste or texture.

Likewise. Waitrose had a great deal on Lurpak a couple of months ago and my dog food freezer in the garage was full of it.

Thanks OP Does anyone remeber the EU butter mountain, they had massive freezers full of the bloomin stuff, of course you can freeze it, just make sure its well wrapped as it can pick up the smells of other foods.

Don't waste your cash. Lurpak and President are far better than these poor knock off attempts.

More to the point why waste your money on more expensive brands if you're content with a cheaper alternative?

I usually buy the Lurpak spreadable but tried this out of interest. It's pretty tasteless compared to the Lurpak in my opinion. I wouldn't bother.

Butter freezes with no problems - I've been doing it for years.

eek.. how can they even make this product at such low cost? I assume the cost price would be around 10p-20p , rest involving transportation/storage etc..

Sadly the cost to the environment is higher with butter than margarine because of how much water and food is required to rear cattle.

Buy double cream when it's reduced to pence in supermarket. whiz it down in mixer/food processor & freeze the butter produced.
#31
This butter used to be good, but they changed the supplier (used to be made by kerrygold) and ingredients. Now it is full of palm oil and not much butter, and tastes terrible. Aldi one is much better as it contains 64% butter.

ive learnt so much reading this!
all my life -now in late 40s- ive just put whatever spread was in the fridge on bread, couple of slices of ham and that's lunch box sorted. ive never been ill so far, have low cholesterol, maybe I'm just lucky or maybe ive got better things to do then worry about the butter content in a spread!!!!

When I checked the Aldi one the ingredients were identical to the Lurpak one. Have moved over to Aldi one now. Will give the Lidl one a miss I think

Tried the Danpak twice because I like buying quality cheaper products but I find this not comparable at all. To me it tasted very cheap and nothing like lurpak.

My mother taught me, always use quality tomatos and butter in food/recipes

They usually do. My partner prefers that one. But, I say I don't eat much salt so, this is my allowance. He doesn't eat salt, suffers with nite time cramps. I used to too (bad ones too!!) but, with a bit of salt in my diet it seems to work. Well, for me anyway!! Sorry to rabbit on!!

This stuff may be cheap, but can't hold a candle to Anchor Spreadable. Much less butter content than all the main players. It is cheap at this price though.

Heat added, good fine.

Looked at this yesterday, 37% butter content
