1kg Lurpak for £4. That's pretty cheap.

Have you ever tried to make butter? You don't get a lot of butter from a pint of milk.
They take the butter from a better class of cows.

Yes, but only 4% of milk is cream so you need lots of it.
For anyone interested. Make you own.
I'm gonna try it tomorrow.

We did that long ago at primary school. It takes aaages though and your wrist will be sore. Fun to see but really not worth the effort!
I'd would mock you and the question, but as you have Cantona as your avatar I will let it go

​That is a question that needs answers, I suspect though that it's down to exploitation of the workforce.
Why do all these coffee chains charge 3 quid for a coffee when it surely only costs them pence? genuinely annoys me! X)
Different items get different prices based on their own markets, having nothing absolute, although there has something to do with each other.
Is this meant to be a serious question or is the op just trolling?
