Found 24th Jun 2014
Just browsing asda and noticed that the 500g of anchor butter is £2.00. This offer was meant to start in store yesterday but it didn't, I know this as I saw a flyer at Barking Asda. I think its random stores as is was full price in greenhithe.

Never near us:-(

Isn't the standard price now for 250g slightly salted bog-standard butter (which is all Anchor is) just £1 or less at all major supermarkets? Even including Waitrose.

Hot deal - over £3 in Sainsburys

just to let people know a single one costs £1.70 for 250g

Hot! Normal price is around £3.25 and was on offer last week 2 for £5.

Cold. Butter has one ingredient. You can buy store branded 250g butter blocks for a pound. The only people who buy branded butter over stores' own brands are those who are receptive to wasting money.

Why is this an offer? 200g own brand is £1 in most places so same price only you have to buy twice as much

That's the power of the brand for you. Stick an anchor on the pack and, what shall we say, the less thoughtful amongst us, will happily pay more than 50% more for the same bulk butter, imagining that it's in some way better butter.

Lets not start the brand argument lol. It's people's choice to buy a brand and if its on offer for a little bit more or less than own label then why not?

Otherwise all branded deals are cold regardless because supermarket labels are still cheaper which just seems a bit petty.

There's a big difference with butter. Buying branded butter is particularly pointless because pretty much all butter is just butter whatever label you stick on it. A few specialist butters apart, you're getting absolutely nothing by wasting money on a brand like Anchor. As you say, though, it's your choice.

Buy anchor, along with the 4 major stores' own brands and do a taste test to see how they compare!

Also, butter has more than one ingredient, unless that one ingredient you're talking about is atoms.

Taste test? Anchor tastes much the same as any other standard UK-style salted butter. Compare Anchor and Aldi, for example - you'll notice no difference in a blind tasting. The same bulk butter is used both for Anchor and many own label butters.

And, apart from a little addd salt in salted butters, what are the other ingredients you're referring to?

I guess your the type that would say all prawn cocktail flavoured crisps taste the same.

Butter is made from milk, nothing else. Salt is added but isn't an essential ingredient, hence why we have salted and unsalted butter.
