So I somehow, accidentally, bought this shit type of butter which is less than 50% actual butter, according to the ingredients list. I didn’t realise such a thing existed, or that if it existed, that it was allowed to be sold as just “butter”, without big glaring warning text on it like, “52% NOT BUTTER! Probably do not buy this unless you have some very specific reason for doing so!” I shouldn’t have to scour the ingredients list just to be assured that when I buy butter it actually is butter! 😠
