And it's indistinguishable from (and probably is) Anchor.

butterwars. I like it!

Think it's Aldi's West Country 'crystallised' butter at £1.29 - best butter ever!! #headsup

its probably coming down everywhere well it should as its kinda pegged to milk which has come down to 89p as well o yeah Iceland been doing butter for 89p last few months first ones to reduce butter n milk

hot

It's cheaper to buy those yellow coloured spreads.

Heat.

I love butter, buttery biscuit base :o)

u can't use spreads in curries or for frying bread on a tawa they Ruin ur pans all the onion sticks to the bottom and bread its OK on toast

What price is it normally? Can't be much more than 89p

it was a while back now but I saw an anchor butter delivery truck reversed up to the loading bay at the Aldi in Nantwich.

Mrs will kill me if tawa gets ruined...

Actually, they did change the recipe not long for their unsalted butter. It's mixed with vegetable oil now . It doesn't say on the packaging, but you can taste it and it's softer too. This is cheating! Salted is ok, same good as it used to be

It's not.

But it's not bad either and I buy this when Anchor is not on offer.

It's not as nice as Anchor though.

I was going to say, the Aldi Butter is British and Anchor is imported from New Zealand, so unlikely, but...

Been more of a Lurpak Butter Bod, I have only just found out that Aria have moved production to Wiltshire, so Anchor is no longer New Zealand Butter and uses British Cream, and has a different taste and texture to the New Zealand one.

Aria is a cooperative of British Farmers so its highly likely this is made at the same British Factory, given Anchor is been made under Licence there.

There is obviously some profit in Branded Butter, given the price of Lurpak (my choice of butter)

Surely a butter with vegetable oil is margarine? and any added ingredients should be labeled?

Like it. I bought two

This. They can't put vegetable oil in it and not declare it as it's illegal.

Unless.......#buttergate.

They don't. It isn't sold as butter.

I love this butter. it spreads much better than any other

Try it.. Buy salted and unsalted, unsalted one is rubbish

All this price war is doing is hurting the farmers.

As usual then, poor quality Aldi product made cheaper. Hopefully this doesn't contain salmonella like the chocolate. bbc.co.uk/new…560

Call the Foods Standards Agency if you KNOW it's got vegetable oil in, they'll shut down production if it's true and labelled as butter. Otherwise STFU and jog on.

Just discovered that the Aldi Greenvale salted butter has the FP046 code showing that it's made in the Gower View Foods creamery in Wales.

Exactly the same code as appears on Country Life butter. Draw your own conclusions.
