It Makes Sense.
It melts on toast and lowers my cholesterol. Enough said.
ITS GOOD FOR YOU TRY IT!
I use this to maintain a healthy heart having suffered a heart attack at a young age it keeps my cholesterol levels in check and i use as part of a much healthier diet although i had a good diet before i had not realized just how much fat etc i was eating when i looked at added sauces and dressings that i put on my food. I really dont understand the negative comments on taste though in my opinion it tastes good still i suppose everyone to their own as the saying goes
taste is subjective but this does not taste "buttery" to me. I've suffered in spread on toast for my health for one tub but will not be repeating the experience. Horrid.
Really unpleasant flavour and smell.
If you are expecting a Buttery flavour then you will be very disappointed. It has an unpleasant, strong smell. A kind of plastic, chemical smell which carries over into the flavour. I think benecol need new tasters because this isnt remotely "Buttery". It tastes and smells like a very cheap, very greasy margarine. It's really unpleasant.

We weren't sure about this at first, shouldn't it be for someone older? But then I realised it is suitable & probably a good idea because of its health benefits. Tastewise id say it is on a par with some of the other brands, a really tasty spread

This is a great substitute for butter or margarine. It tastes really creamy. You can spread it on your bread or toast and use it in your cooking where you would normally use butter. Best of all it can help lower your cholesterol.
I try to avoid any products with Palm Oil and this butter contains it !!
A HEALTHY SANDWICH!
A lovely buttery taste! and just knowing it is very low in salt and saturates makes it a brilliant spread. Its plant based so great for vegetarians. It great for cooking too, nice and light for Crumbles and melting on your vegetables. I am very heavy handed with butter on Jacket Potatoes and Crumpets so Benecol serves me well on both of these. Worth the money.
Not for me.
I had great hopes for this spread and expected it to taste at least vaguely buttery. However, I found the taste really unpleasant. I tried to force it down as I need to lower my cholesterol, but I couldn't do it and it went in the bin.
