Beautiful butter

5 stars

Found this to be light and easily spreadable. No oily flavour and not over powering. Tastes great with toast, on a sandwich and I have used in baking which was a great success [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Would buy again

5 stars

This was very nice, I had toast most mornings with butter. Also made mash potato with butter and it was perfect. Would buy this again. My nana also enjoyed this as I recommended this to her and the fact it helps with cholesterol is a bonus. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Will use it again!

5 stars

Great product. Really wouldn't tell the difference from butter in taste, easier to spread. Attractive packaging- Easy to spot, would definitely recommend [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Flora ProActive light

4 stars

Having tried Flora ProActiv light for the first time I am pleasantly surprised. I normally always buy butter because I go for taste and in my opinion butter tastes better than spreads. Having said that now iv tried Flora ProActiv I would consider switching to this. It has a really nice creamy taste with the added benefit that it is good for your health. I will be buying a tub of this for my grandad who has high cholesterol with the hope that in 2-3weeks his cholesterol will have lowered as promised on the tub.

Mmmmm.... delicious!!

5 stars

I can only recommend it! I thought it's just a spread without any taste, but i was wrong.. very wrong. Tastes creamy, it's thick, and of course it's healthy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Healthy spread for all the family

5 stars

I'm relatively health conscious and want to give my young family a good start in life. We normally buy an olive oil based spread but were tempted to try the Flora ProActiv Light Spread due to the publicised health benefits. The colour of the spread was quite pale but it spread nicely. So far we've used it on bread, toast and baked potatoes. The spread melted nicely on hot food and tasted good too. Nobody noticed any difference in flavour from our normal spread and everyone said they would be happy to eat it again. As none of us in the household have regular cholesterol checks I'm not able to confirm if the benefits to health are relevant but overall there has been a positive reaction from this household to this new spread.

Spread the happiness

4 stars

Well, having seen the Pro Activ range in the supermarkets I have wondered what all the fusss was about - getting to try Pro Active for free was a bargain, so I would get to find out. I cannot comment on its cholesterol lowering factors - as unless you get a blood test before and after to see if there is any change there would be no way to know for sure. As for the look, taste and general product - here are my findings: Look: Great packaging, catches the eye and has information on the product, but not an overwhelming amount, which is good - you don't want to be stood in the spreads aisle reading for ages. The pack is sealed, when the seal is peeled back, the colour of the spread is a nice butter colour. Taste: I found the spread to be quite creamy in flavour. It didn't taste plasticky like some spreads can be. I found it rather nice. General: It spread very well, even after being in the fridge and going hard - it gives an even spread and you do not need much of it for it to do the job . Overall - I was quite impressed and I would probably buy it in the future. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Pro active flora

3 stars

This has a great looking tub.... is a nice colour ... although quite mild it has a really nice texture and flavour. I think it is a bit pricey but how much do you put on your health. I would buy this again but think it overpriced itself for most people. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Flora Light light light

3 stars

Always looking for a way to make our fridge a bit healthier I had high hopes for Flora ProActive Light spread. The packaging was simple and appealing with a good firm click when the lid closed (simple things I know!). As expected this spread went on very easily, even on very fresh (just out of the breadmaker) bread without ripping it, and when used on toast it melted in very easily and evenly, however I found the Light in the name very apt as this was very light on taste. There was no after taste or anything like that but I didn't feel there was a taste either. Spreading evenly and with good coverage has made the tub last a good length of time though.
