I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Fat Free

Please, don't ask me why we bought this. I think we must've been on a high from buying too many Lean Cuisines and indulging on cheese made from 2% milk. After a bender like that, trying out a Fat Free butter-like substance seems like something worth a shot. Lemme tell you folks, it's not.

We tried it once we got home and, while not entirely unlike butter, it was really gross. Ever tried that salt substitute made from potassium chloride instead of sodium chloride? The experience was a lot like that. Not content to accept total defeat, I figured it had to be good for something, so I tried to use it to make a grilled cheese sandwich.

It was almost a crime against humanity. The "butter" turned into a consistency not unlike cooked eggs as soon as it hit the griddle, leaving the bread a soggy mess. I barely rescued it using some Pam and the results were still mediocre at best. Needless to say, that bought the stuff a one-way ticket to the city dump. Be warned to stay away from this gunk.

    Yeah. The thing I hate about it most is that it soaks into the bread. There’s one kind that has a pretty good flavor though. But I can’t remember the name of it. Obviously I use it ALL THE TIME.

    Thanks for the warning. I’m laughing myself silly.

    It’s like Country Crock.

    Meaning, if you buy this in the country, you shall be fed to the croc.
