Don't get tricked by "Plant Based Butter"

It's basically relabeled margarine. No wonder they're doing this, margarine sales are at a 75 year low because people have figured out it's horribly unhealthy.

Over here "soft spread" is the latest buzz word, looks like butter but sure as hell isn't butter.

Western Star "spreadable" (no mention of the word butter) is another gimmick, they are a big butter company here, again, looks like butter, in the same container as their butter lines, but is basically margarine rehashed.

The only thing it's good for is greasing the wheel bearings of a Western Star truck... 8)
