They are only available from Lakeland either in store or online

Butter Buds® - Lakeland, the home of creative kitchenware

They were £3.99 for 40 sachets but I notice they have increased lately.

Use them in jackets, or especially to mash spuds for low-syn buttery goodness:)

I love them as it goes, but others hate them! - I also add to scrambled egg for the buttery taste.

Anyone wanting to try before they buy can so by ordering a small sample on Ebay - just do a search on there.

Half a syn - much better than trying to calculate half a syn's worth of butter lol

At half a syn, you can add as many as you want. I also add them to scrambled eggs, cos that's the way I roll;)

As I mentioned, some people can't stand them, they are very, erm, buttery, but that's the idea lol. I have usually got syns to spare and with jackets, or mash, I just add them until I think it's Lurpak!

It works best with wet/moist food as this hydrates the powder.

Are they that sort of funny fake butter taste like what buttery frylight smells like? I do rather enjoy that flavour xxxx

No - nothing like the frylight stuff (yeuch)
Agreed!

The frylight stuff is rancid - Butter buds are a nice buttery flavour and when Lurpak is off limits, quite tasty!

All in my humble opinion of course.

Glad you like them Emma.

As I mentioned, some people hate them, but I find them so buttery, and in my opinion, they have no after taste (apart from butter lol)

If they're only 5 calories wouldn't they be 4 sachets = 1 syn or 2 for 0.5 syns?
