I can get a really good deal on land -o- lake 1 lb butter. I can get it for $1.37 a lb. I've checked the local grocery stores where it goes for $3.49. Does anyone know how long butter is good for? What if I freeze it? Should I buy alot? I was thinking of getting a case. TIA
You're in GA? Is this a deal through a friend/family member or am I missing a "hot spot" somewhere? lol (I'm in GA)
I would buy a lot because I use it quite a bit and use it in my icings. That is an AWESOME deal! Most should hav expirations dates I believe...?
I buy from Costco and do freeze them.
you can freeze butter no problem, that is a wonderful deal I would stock up
That is a great price...and you definitely can freeze the butter! Janice
That IS a great price. I buy about 20# to 30#'s's of butter at a time and just put it in the freezer with no problems!
Yes, I would definitely buy it and freeze it. I didn't realize until today when I was going through my new Baking 9-1-1 Rescue from recipe disasters cookbook that you could freeze butter. From now on whenever butter is on sale at the grocery, I will buy more and freeze it. Where is Georgia do you live? I moved to Arizona from Georgia. Janice
Outstanding deal. I wish that my area would run good deals like that. We only have Food Lion and Fresh Pride so the competition isn't big. Freeze away, it will be fine.
To save you some room in the freeze, use a rubbermaid or such container to put it in and you won't have to worry about the boxes falling over when you go into the freeze.
Have fun butter shopping
Thanks everyone, I think I'll get two cases then. The retail store that I work at "had" a cafe'. They are letting us (employees) buy all of the "leftover" supplies at cost.
What a great deal! I wish I could get butter for that price. I would definitely stock up.
Speak it and it will happen...
I was at Costco this week and the butter has gone down to $6.79 for FOUR pounds! That's about $1.69 a pound! Yippeee!!!!
So if anyone is in GA...check out Costco. I was there just this past Tuesday.
