Very buttery for a light spread

4 stars

Review from Benecol

when I purchased this I thought that it would not taste buttery and I would not like it because it was light and obviously good to lower cholesterol. Well I was very surprised. Its got a very buttery taste and is lush on toast. The whole family loves it. I am now totally converted. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Not bad

3 stars

Review from Benecol

I got this to help lower my cholesterol . I’m quite fussy with butters but found this one to be ok. I did find it has a waxy taste and texture but was more palatable once melted on a jacket potato . [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Benecol Light Spread - We loved it!

5 stars

Review from Benecol

I was a little apprehensive about trying this spread as I do have a fussy household, however there was no need for me to worry as the whole family loved it! I really enjoyed the lightness of the spread but it didn’t taste like some margarines I’ve tried in the past and it really made a difference. I’ll definitely be happy to swap my old butter for this light spread, and so will the rest of the family! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Super spread

5 stars

Review from Benecol

Perfect simply on toast or used as a daily spread, ideal light spread for all the family - tastes great and spreads evenly and well - a lighter option which is also good to benefit from! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Tastes just as good as other butters

5 stars

Review from Benecol

This was a first time for me trying benecol butter. I’ve heard of it’s benefits before like lowering cholesterol, but thought this would heavily affect the taste. However upon trying it, I have found it to be just as good as regular butter. It stills is super light and buttery which makes it perfect for anything! It’s benefits are great aswell, which makes eating it all that better. Would recommend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great buttery taste

5 stars

Review from Benecol

I was looking for a spread that was healthier and that lowered cholesterol. This is great, it has a lovely buttery taste and I love the fact it has great health benefits. Me and my husband have been using it now for two weeks and will happily swap over from our usual one. Very happy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Review from Benecol

I had never tasted this spread before. It's pretty nice. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Tasty spread

4 stars

Review from Benecol

We already drink Benecol drinks so the light spread was a natural next change in our diet. Spreads easily, tastes good and even better is that its good for your cholesterol. Hubby would prefer a slightly stronger buttery taste but overall a winner [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Tasty

5 stars

Review from Benecol

Tried this and I’m not a lover of spreads but this was quite nice . It smells really buttery but doesn’t taste to buttery which I actually didn’t mind. The best thing about it is it helps lower cholesterol [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
