Don’t buy this
This tasted like margarine with salt added. It was awful and had a weird chemical smell when you opened the tub and got as an after taste.
Usually buy lurpack but trying to be more conscious of spends thought I would give this a go. I’ve learnt my lesson never to make this sacrifice again! The smell of this is absolutely gross, it can’t be right!? Doesn’t taste like butter either. Don’t even bother !
The first thing I noticed when I opened it was the smell, rancid. Its well in date, Dec 2020. Needless to say I threw it away, I wasn't going to risk it. I won't be buying this again.
really nice flavour

Not To Our Taste
Bought it after believing good reviews - We wont be buying it again.
The smell and taste were rancid! If I hadn't read other reviews I would have thought this had gone off but it's in date. Absolutely foul - why does Tesco sell something so disgusting? Don't they try these things before selling them to customers?
Quite surprised to see some bad reviews left on butterpak about the smell... That's basically how real butter smells. As a student living by myself, I have resorted to using butterpak (read: butter + margarine) as a replacement for real butter to be more thrifty. I've tried making ham & cheese sandwich with butterpak this morning and it turned out great! I've also baked a batch of berries and white chocolate blondies (or white chocolate brownies as Tesco's recipe calls it) yesterday with butterpak. That went well too!
Good as the leading brand
My mother swears by lurpak butter but when I served this on toast when she stayed with me for a couple of days she couldn't tell it wasn't what she normally uses. It has the right amount of salty flavour at a fraction of the cost of lurpak so a thumbs up from me (and the mother even if she doesn't realize) 😛
Try it, love it
I usually buy a similar market leader but since trying this have decided the taste and price make it a far better buy. Unfortunately I like it so much I use more !
Nasty cheap taste. Horrible.
Smells awful and tastes awful (spreads well though)! It tastes like those old margarines that were by-products of the petro-chemical industry, but with added awful fat smell. Spend more and buy a product made with decent butter, not this nasty cheap "butter". Smell it for too long and you become nauseous.
