About this deal

Price reduction on both these. If you like Lurpak but are put off by the price of it at the moment this is definitely worth a try (they appear to have almost identical ingredients although Nordpak are more specific about how much rapeseed oil is in it!)

Nordpak spreadable slightly salted ingredients

Butter (64%) (𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐤), Rapeseed Oil (26%), Water, Salt (1%), Lactic Cultures (𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐤).

Lurpak spreadable lightly salted ingredients

Butter (64%) (Milk), Rapeseed Oil, Water, Lactic Culture (Milk), Salt

Lighter version here (same price)

    Prefer this to Lurpak, having a lighter taste.

    But, wait for the butter police... (edited)
    Buttercop surely?

    I was convinced that i didn't like this until i tried it , I wonder what the critics would prefer in a blind tasting?.
    Precisely. Would love to see this happening on TV like when many years ago Martin Lewis challenged those Vodka snobs to a blind tasting session. IIRC Sainsbury's Basics Vodka came out top We review groceries with our eyes a lot of the time. (edited)

    It may be a good price for those that choose Lurpak. Sadly it's still well out of my reach for butter. £430 utility bills have seen to that .
    I'd look in to the Octopus tracker tariff that was posted last week. Look over it carefully as there is a risk it could cost more than the fixed rate, but I'm a tiny energy user (About 1/5 your bill) and have saved £3 already in 5 days, so thay would be about £15 for you, possibly £90 a month.

    As I say though, read over it all *very carefully* before you jump on it.

    I didn’t think was anything like lurpark
    Indeed. Its good, and similar but nowhere near as good. Still better than a lot of others though esp for th eprice

    Lurpark spreadable is only half butter and should be half the price of butter. It's another major brand ripping off the public. (edited)

    Went for this over Lurpak a few years ago as the price of Lurpak was outrageous at the time, now the price of Lurpak is off the scales

    There's no substitute for real butter. Look at the ingredients.
    These are spreadable , as far as I know they all have added oil otherwise they won’t spread when cold.
    I agree I prefer the taste of  100% butter but prefer the convenience of spreadable (edited)

    Hmmm a quick google search on the ingredients of this and lurpak and they seem pretty much identical , I don’t have an Aldi near me so buy Lidls version , can’t afford Lurpak anymore given all the other price rises , tastes similar and having been buying for months I am probably none the wiser to the difference now.
    Yep, both Lurpak and Nordpak spreadables slightly salted have 64% butter for instance which is surely the most important ingredient?

    Butter (64%) (Milk), Rapeseed Oil, Water, Lactic Culture (Milk), Salt

    Butter (64%) (𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐤), Rapeseed Oil (26%), Water, Salt (1%), Lactic Cultures (𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐤).

    I haven't said which is which as there seems little point (edited)

    Your not the only one but I'm not, there is a huge difference in taste for me. Your right in that it doesnt matter so much in sandwiches & thats why I use utterly butterly or similar for that but like you say on anything like toast, scones, jacket spuds you cant beat Lurpak. In a blind taste test norpak v lurpak I would bet my house that I could tell the difference.

    We used to use Lurpak and Anchor but the Aldi brands have won us over - Norpak is delicious on grilled bread with tea. The taste is slightly better for sure (hope ALdi doesn't increase its prices)

    OK price but I prefer butter with nothing added other than salt. We only have butter in the fridge in summer so most of the time the blocks are still spreadable
  12. Avatar
    Am I the only one who can't really tell the difference between all these spreads? Surely once you've added filling to your sandwich you can't taste the butter or spread. I admit, if you're having something like hot cross buns, buttered scones or plain toast it is more noticeable but certainly not, for example, a cheese and pickle sandwich or similar. For the hot cross buns I prefer Flora Buttery but I wouldn't pay £2 for it if I can get Utterly Butterly for £1.50...

    I have to get hubby real butter 'cos he gets mardy if I don't (he even goes so far as to not put anything on his sandwiches, apart from the filler, which I find bizarre! It's a right dry job) and it's 2 for £3 at Farmfoods at the moment.

    OK - but nothing like the Lurpak equivalent.

    It's the only one I use. Clover for hubby but I love the Nordpak....its mine, all mine

    Perfectly good Lurpack replacement seeing as how overpriced Lurpack is these days. Its NOT twice as good as this. This is far better value
    This deal went to minus 30 within a few mins of me posting it. I had literally no idea Lurpak stanning was a thing. I mean, I can half understand if we were talking about a celeb but a brand of butter?? (edited)

    Good alternative to Lurpak

    The Lurpak version Morrisons has made is about the best out there but still can notice the difference

    The TESCO BUTTERPAK version (2 varieties) is the same price (£2.19). (edited)

    Sadly one of those offerings by Aldi that is nothing like the original.

    It's fine spread for money, but if you hope for Lurpak or butter taste, you better move on
