Does anyone know if it still exists?

I saw it for £1 in Asda months ago, but haven't seen it in anywhere since.

I'd never heard of it before, but Ocado seems to be selling it for £1.50 if that's any use to you? Seems a bit steep to me for 225g.

Just checking you know it's made with buttermilk?

Bit late here. Where did you see it was made with buttermilk? I was sure it was vegan!

Thanks for Ocado recommendation. I found it in Heron Frozen Foods 3 for £1 in the end!

Didn't look like it was made with buttermilk from the ingredients lists I saw online. Sounds like you got a good bargain!

Gosh, so sorry - I think I was confusing it with the other Clover spreads.

Ohh phew! That's okay then - A relief as I have bought in bulk with it being so cheap.

It is really good! I didn't know they were owned by DairyCrest though... damn.

Would you buy it from a seconds shop that flogs stuff with close dates, like I did? Or is that just the same difference?

I think it's one of those whatever-you're-comfotable-with things. Like some vegans eat stuff with palm oil in, it's a personal choice. Technically if there's no animal ingredients in it then it is vegan.

Eta: vitalite are also owned by dairy crest and they have a vegan society label on their packaging (from what I remember, correct me if I'm wrong). Also, they make fry light.
There's no escaping it!

I'd buy it if I saw it - if companies can make money selling vegan stuff they might concentrate on making more of it!

Rosie - Vitalite is what I was using before ('cause of the vegan labelling), so not doing too well on that front. I think margariney stype stuff generally is a bit of a minefield isn't it? I really don't like Pure, and other accidental vegan spreads are so artificial tasting.

dropscone - That was my thinking originally, hence why my fridge is full of the stuff... If it wasn't so heavy I'd mail you a tub to try!

I think Pure were bought by a dairy company too right? Or am I thinking of someone else? VioLife cheeses are owned by a Greek dairy company. It's super hard to avoid crappy parent companies these days, for me as long as the parent company doesn't animal test (Avoiding Unilever's the most challenging) then I'm okay with it but, as Rosie said, it's a personal preference thing.

Aw, that's kind of you! I've still got most of a tub of Vitalite in the freezer, I don't get through marge very fast, I'm just mildly curious about this stuff now, but it'd probably end up in my freezer for a couple of years too!

I *think* pure are owned by Kerry foods and they make dairy and meat products, no idea if they're a dairy as such.

It's still being sold in Asda for £1 if you're curious about it.

Ohh it never occurred to me that you could freeze margarine! I'm definitely going to do that, I was thinking what I'd do with it all since I don't have it much either. Cheers for that :)

Just be aware that the plastic gets a bit brittle straight out of the freezer so leave it a minute or two before you try to take the lid off a tub, or run it under warm water for a couple of seconds.

If I didn't use much marge and wanted to freeze it I think I'd divide it out into portion sizes before I froze it. Actually I don't use much marge but my o/h uses more.
