Butter v. Margarine?


  • 2007 AAR League

    So which is it?

    I vote butter - it’s more delicious. But we use more margarine because it’s cheaper and I guess supposedly healthier.

    You forgot Neither …
    They both gross me out :lol:
    I refuse to eat anything with butter or margarine on it … but almost all dairy products gross me out besides ice cream



  • Ok, my friend that is a nutrionist has always backed butter over margarine.  I’ll try to recall why.

    Butter contains saturated fats and cholesterol, which are necessary for human development (and upkeep), but not to be taken in excess. 
    Margarine contains the same, yet is hydrogenated and contains trans fats as well.  On the other hand, you can have various sources of margarine (olive oil being better for you, but not as tasty), and the option for it to be vegan and pareve friendly.
    I’ve seen some new margarine products in my co-op that seem to be lower calorie/better for you, but I don’t know if there is a catch or trade off there.

    And, if you ever see someone claiming butter is better because margarine is only 1 molecule away from a type of plastic, smack them.  That’s just ridiculous (hydrogen peroxide is one molecule away from water, so by that logic…).

    I love butter.  I used to hate it because I was raised on Margerine.  But I love butter!

    No, there is no other choice. Think of it this way - if you had to eat toast with one or the other at gunpoint (or popcorn), then which would you choose?

    I want this poll to be based purely on flavour. Hence my vote for butter.



  • Ok, I forgot my opinion on taste.  Butter is clearly tastier on it’s own.  Salted though, need to have some salt.

    Isn’t that “buttery topping” something completely different?



  • Oops, I posted this in the other thread…

    Have any of you ever seen Paula Dean on Food Network?

    Sorry, no other options. You must choose Butter or Margarine!

    When you are playing A&A, do you suddenly say “Oh but I want another kind of unit - let’s see - Anti-tank regiments!” Or “No but wait - I think we should add the lost continent of Atlantis to the map!”

    It is not an option! You MUST CHOOSE one of the two fats that has been set before you. Bwah ha ha ha!!! I am drunk with power!!!



  • India produces and consumes more butter than any other nation, dedicating almost half of its annual milk production to making butter or ghee. In 1997, India produced 1,470,000 metric tons of butter, consuming almost all of it.

    and guess whos second? it the sausuage lovers.

    In terms of consumption, Germany was second after India, using 578,000 tons of butter in 1997

    Mmm…ghee.  Indian food is awesome.

    I think that has more to do with caloric intake and sedentary lifestyles.



  • I vote Butter mainly because of 2 things
    1: Butter sugar sandwich…mmmmm  😛
    2: Butter, and Cinnomin, surgar on a tortilla role…heat it up……mmmmmmm  😛

    You know what, I’m about to go have both of those right now.  😛



  • Yeah, sopapillas (I think that’s how they are spelled) are easy and very good.  But you need to fry em to get it perfect.
