Re: Which would you choose?

without a doubt.....butter. why?.....its a natural product. i'd rather have a small amount of butter than regualr amounts of marg, which is vile in my opinion :pukeright: !! i also believe anything that manmade cant be good for you....all those chemicals in it to keep it on the shelf til we use it.....
