Just back from France - and have loved the foods. Particularly the butter. It seems far saltier than the butter we have here in UK?

I brought some back home with us. It is just a cheap, supermarket brand. but it really is quite tasty.

Anyone know of any good butters and where I can buy it? I know about President - I have splashed the cash on that before now.

I was about to suggest Brittany butter. You can get it in lots of places, not just Waitrose.

I love the sainsburys butter with Cornish sea salt.

What DancingQueen says. It's lush.

Miles better than president!

I tried some President because I had heard how nice it was. It wasn't any better than the butter I usually buy.

The Fine Cheese Company does an English Butter with sea salt.

Welsh butter tends to be saltier than English if you can get it where you live.

There is a brand called Dragon Butter, but whatever you do don't Google!

Anchor. Seriously. Deliciously salty and much much cheaper.

Thanks for all the replies.

We don't have a Waitrose anywhere near (I think not, anyway). I have had some with the salt crystals in before - lovely.

Anchor? Will try it.

Apparently there is a Waitrose at the Services nearish to here. Other than that it's 17 miles away.

mIght be worth a trip.

Our Aldi's does a lovely butter with salt crystals. It's yummy and nearly half the price of most others.

Ah really Lucy.

I can get to Aldi easily.

will have a look .

Most large supermarkets do Brittany butter. It is a type of butter rather than a brand, like cheddar cheese.
