It's dated Nov 2004, but it's still interesting! Wonder what it's been used in, if anything?

I don't miss butter though, Organic Pure spread is too good! :D My brother now eats it instead of dairy butter too, he likes it so much. Sooo creamy!

Miss the taste of butter?

Nope.

Nope.

Me neither. I started refusing to eat butter about 4 years before I even went veggie, it used to make me feel ill (just butter, no other dairy products, strangely enough). Yuck!

My brother told me on the phone tonight that he's stopped eating dairy (for health reasons only, apparently it's really bad for MS). He's started using the Pure sunflower spread instead and loves it. So yay! :)

was thinking it may be nice for fudge - get a bit fed up of everything tasting like vanilla;)

Not so great for fudge/sugar work thou, PURE has a very high water content.

Marks and Spencer do a vegan margarine that does pretty much taste like butter. (admittedly my memories of butter might be a bit old!) That's the full-fat version, not the low-fat version, btw.

Pure margarine tastes good, but not as good as butter. I'm interested to know what this M&S one is too.

It's been too long - I don't remember what true butter tastes like. But I got my family converted to Earth Balance (http://www.earthbalancenatural.com/#/products/organic/) spread which they say tastes real similar. Either way, it's pretty tasty stuff! :bigsmile:

Tomor Margarine (block, not in a tub) is brilliant - very buttery tasting. Not sure how widely available it is as its Kosher. Makes brill pastry, crumbles etc and tastes nice on toast. We bought a load of it for our wedding caterers to use and none of our guests noticed the difference!:D

Where do you get that then? Please? :)

Manchester has all the best vegan kosher stuff in supermarkets, like chocolate digestives. You can give up any hope of finding it in Yorkshire :p

The M&S one is own-brand and just called 'dairy-free sunflower spread'. It is usually in the same fridge case as the butter and a few other margarines. (Which is a pain in the arse to find in the Norwich branch, btw)
I miss Tomor - used to be able to get it when I lived in Coventry, but nowhere in Nottingham has it.

I feel for you, I moved away from Cov last year but still work there. Don't remember ever seeing Tomor.

We can get Tomor from Tesco (Altrincham) and Tesco online and its also appeared occasionally in Manchester City Centre Tesco. I think you can order it online - I did look for it once - but you had to buy a whole case from specialist Kosher supplier (can't remember the name). Its made by Rakusens if you want to have a look. Sorry, I'm not much use on this one!

I used to love butter, far too much on everything (filling crumpets right up etc) but I went straight to pure sunflower and it tastes almost exactly the same as the butter I used to buy, acts the same and everything, it's just got a slightly nutty extra flavour that adds to its charm

*runs and checks fridge* Tomor! Yeah, that's what i just got from Sainsburys in Harrogate. Only tried it once so far, but thought it was ok. I just got it cos it was 54p and i wondered what it would be like :)
