Last week, while exploring the dairy case at a Hartford, Connecticut area supermarket, I happened to notice a display of Breakstone’s Unsalted Whipped Butter. It had been several years since I last ate whipped butter and I have always enjoyed its flavor. The sale price was reasonable, so I purchased one eight ounce container of the butter.
I am so impressed with this item, that I have decided to write a review of it. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is an article which reviews and examines Breakstone’s Unsalted Whipped Butter.
