$2.69 at Trader Joes, and I get a local butter that is maybe 6.50 a lb at the farmers market. The Kerrygold is really good compared to the local butter though.
I suggest we delete this thread before TJ's sees it! I fn love Kerrygold now, other butters really suck compared to it.
Its been on sale at whole foods for a couple months at $2.18. I dont shop for much at whole foods, but when I do, I get 4 pounds of butter and 3 jars if pickles.
I thought I would compare the prices with those in Ireland.
At Tesco Ireland 225g is 1.69 euro
450g is 2.95 euro.
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.
Life. Be in it.
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.
Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.
Yep... $2.79 at Trader Joe's. I am in the Pacific Northwest.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
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!
