    BJ's has it as well (primarily NE US I believe), They have their cheese also which is quite good. Don't know the price off hand but it's reasonable even as compared to supermarket butter elsewhere.

        Convert to US dollars. for 250g is $2.19
        for 450g is $3.82

        So actually the poor souls in Ireland are paying the equivalent, if not in reality more for the same thing. You guys should be paying more for shipping etc, but generally you aren't except for the OP.

        It is interesting it is the same price in Germany as in Ireland.

        I am sure there is lesson in this somewhere, but I am not sure what it is. Maybe the efficiency of Germany compared to other EU countries.

        Enjoy your butter.
        Welcome to the taxes of Eurosocialism. We pay less because even though it's shipped across an ocean, it can't make up for the ridiculous value added taxes and fuel surcharges in Eurotopia.
        Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

          That surprised me, too. I expected it would cost less in Ireland. I can't say why it is the same here as in Ireland (but I don't know a thing about economics!).

            Thanks so much everyone...

            Re: The Portalnd local, I will totally look into it. I am actually about 25 miles out of Portland and don't go in to town very often and I know that there are no dairy products at our small farmer's market =) I will also check TJ's and Costco the next time I go that direction =) Thanks all!

              I agree with Laura B. I'm in Southern California and Trader Joe's is $2.79. Supermarkets $5.00.

                It is $3.49 at my Seattle, WA Whole Foods (not on sale). $5 at Thriftway. I'll have to stock up at TJ's next time I'm there!

                  Here in Cleveland it's ~$2.60 for 8 ounces at Trader Joe's. $4-$5 at grocery stores. Though I get my butter from Amish country.

                      Thanks! It is good to hear from Pacific NW that it is in line with other regions. That feels a lot more do-able than $10/lb. =)

                        I'm in Wyoming and only have two places here that carry it- $4.99 in one store, and 4.59 in the other. We still buy it.

                          $2.79 at Whole Foods in the SF Bay Area. Close to 5 at the other stores I've checked.

                            $4.99 at either Whole Paychex or the regular grocer here in glorious Tulsa, OK. We know we're being fleeced.

                              Things made in the Republic of Ireland are usually better value in other places. Ie Northern Ireland (under UK government rules) and in this case Germany. This is not a Europe issue, this is the issue of Irish business ripping off the irish in Ireland. The reason I looked it up as the price in Germany seemed eerily familiar to the time I lived there.

                              I would say those paying 2.19 are onto a very good thing and others are paying extra for shipping and profit margin.

                                Hey I can see that you are in Italy. Kerrygold butter is not available there right? I can find it in Germany with no problems (somebody has already mentioned the prices) but I could never see it in Italy. Do you know any comparable butter available there?
                                thanks
