I never knew President even made butter. Of course, I’m well aware of (and a huge fan of) their cheeses – AMAZING in their own right. In fact I just recently bought a President Brie Cheese that I’m fascinated with.
But back to their butter. Their delicious butter, that is. (Warning, this review includes tons of pictures, so be sure to continue reading after each picture.)
I was sent the following President butters to review:
- President Sea Salt Butter
- President Spreadable Salted Butter
- President Salted Butter Bar
I’m almost as obsessed with sea salt as I am butter, so naturally the first one I tore into was the President Sea Salt Butter.
When you open the little dome-shaped container, you find that the butter is wrapped beautifully in gold paper. So very classy. So very French.
The first thing I noticed about the Sea Salt Butter was its great looks. Truth be told, she’s a beauty. The streaks of darker yellow running throughout the paler yellow was striking. I thought then, “This butter would be GORGEOUS on a Thanksgiving or Christmas table!”
I’m not ashamed to admit that the first thing I tried the President Sea Salt Butter on was my finger. I sliced off a chunk and into the mouth it went.
My first thoughts:
- This is how butter should taste
Beautiful and delicious – how does it get any better?
As for the taste of salt, it was subtle – just as it should be. Detectable? Yes. Over-powering? Not in the least.
The first non-body-part thing I ate with the Sea Salt was Steamed Rice and it was spectacular. Since I knew I’d be using Sea Salt Butter, I simply didn’t salt the rice after taking it out of the steamer.
The President Sea Salt Butter is out of this world – not only on rice but pasta too. I’m certain it’d be delicious on anything.
Off the charts delicious!
When my husband and I were eating supper, he said, “These are the best sweet potatoes I’ve ever had. What did you put in them?”
Funny thing is, I made them just like I always do – the ONLY difference was this time I used President Butter instead of one of the ones I normally use.
I thought it was a great testament to the butter that he noticed without me saying anything. I knew I had noticed how much better they were this time, but I was afraid I was just being partial to my new found butter obsession. He had no idea the butter was new… so he’s an even better judge than me.
- I honestly don’t give a very big flip about color.
- The little flip I do give is actually TOWARD a more pale color for butter.
The majority of people seem to want their butter to be quite yellow. Again, I know I’m in the minority here, but I prefer my butter to be paler. If it’s terribly yellow, it just screams “MARGARINE!” to me. But when it pale, it purrs, “Creamy butter…” – with an emphasis on cream.
President butters are incredibly creamy and more delicious than is seemly. It just isn’t right for anything to be this good.
Okay, so where can you find President butter? I’ve found a few on Amazon (if I didn’t already love Amazon, I would now):
You can also visit President Cheese‘s website and search for stores near you. You can also read more information about President butter and cheeses on their beautiful website.
I’m watching my local grocery stores in the hopes that President Butter will soon be available. This is exceptional butter and… take it from me… once you’ve tasted it, everything else seems like a distant second.
I HIGHLY recommend getting your hands on some President Butter right away – as in the sooner, the better but whatever you do, make sure you have plenty for the holidays. My mind is buzzing at the thought of President Butter on corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and rolls – to say nothing of the extra creamy goodness it’ll bring to homemade fudge, butter cookies (I think I’m beginning to drool…), casseroles, dressing…
