Have you tried to buy plain old butter lately? There are so many choices out there that the task is truly daunting, and I'm not kidding. I sent the son to buy a few groceries, and at the last minute, suggested he buy a few sticks of butter while he was out. No problem, right? Apparently he picked up the few items on the verbal "list" then "stumbled" over at the butter case because there were so many to choose from that he called me to ask which one I wanted. Let me tell you, I was kind of dumbfounded by the question, and answered, "plain butter". He came back with these choices: "butter with and without salt?"; or "creamed butter with canola/vegetable/more-oil-choices oil?" (salted and no salt); or "Can't Believe It's Butter?", and then he was on a roll with all the other choices staring at him from the case. I suggested he take a photo of what he was looking at, and yes, it's daunting all right! It took him five minutes for him to find the "plain salted butter"! Whew! But he got the one I wanted, and I'm thankful for that!
Honestly, should it take that long to select plain old butter?
