I can't understand where the phrase "sweet creamery butter" comes from because I think "real" butter is the most vile, bitterest, nastiest tasting crap I've ever tried. Given the choice between dog poop and real butter on my biscuit, I'd probably just go hungry.
It may very well be because I grew up on margarine .... when your mom is raising six kids, she doesn't spend perfectly good money on $3 "butter" when the 29 cent yellow stick of fat works "JUST fine!" I swear, sometimes I think I'm the only kid that grew up poor in America .... 'coz to hear everyone on the food channel and the tv commercials tell it, EVERYONE'S mother used real butter!
Well, none of the mothers *I* knew ever used real butter! I never knew there was such a thing until I was in my late teens/ early 20's.
