Dairy farm near me makes wonderful ice-cream now which really is cream. According to our mate Oz,who never quite gets things right, she makes ice-cream on the farm,using her own milk. Wonderful woman,wonderful but very tired now she is supplying wholesale!

Does it detail the ingredients? Spreads have other things in them I think.


Muffyxx Report 16 Feb 2013 11:19

Just to use it up I know it's sludge it puts me off eating it where it's's just a *thing* of mine !


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 16 Feb 2013 11:17

If you are intending to use it for baking, but like the taste as a spread, why not continue to use it as such? :-S


Muffyxx Report 16 Feb 2013 11:13

It's the idea of spreads I don't like....they are basically coloured yellow sludge...I liked the taste too Det..but I've sidelined my stock now for baking....

Bless him!

I think I will have ring to warn BC she will be outraged.....have you rang Sue Teresa your mum Joy stray and everyone else :-0


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 16 Feb 2013 11:10

We buy that! :-D

It took a while before we read the packaging, but as we like it, it doesn't bother us. OH always used to say he didn't like 'marg' but neither of us realised that this was non-dairy.


Muffyxx Report 16 Feb 2013 11:08

Yep. :-S

Noooooooooooooo and it taste like butter AND has a fat count and as many cals as butter bloody sneaky if you ask me :-|


Muffyxx Report 16 Feb 2013 11:04

For a while i've been buying what I thought was butter...packaged like butter, sold on the same shelf as butter....

That is until I looked at my receipt and saw it was labelled as a *spread*

Ultimately it's absolutely my fault for not looking on the packet myself..but I do find the packaging and the product placement VERY sneaky... I wonder how many other people , like me, who don't like the idea of *spreads* have been picking this product up assuming it to be proper butter.????

It's called Willow btw.
