Country Crock Plant Butter Sticks Review - Dairy-free, Soy-free and sold in 3 varieties

Country Crock Plant Butter Sticks Now in 3 Dairy-Free, Soy-Free Varieties

The three formulas are almost identical, but one is made with almond oil, one with avocado oil, and one with olive oil. I would expect them to perform exactly the same (those oils don’t make up the bulk of the spreads), but they probably have slightly different flavor profiles.

If pea protein is a problem for you (some with peanut allergies have cross-reactivity), then you might want to consider Country Crock Plant Butter Tubs instead. They contain faba bean protein, but not pea protein.

Avacado is good but label says "May Contain Soy"

Rated 3 out of 5
July 27, 2021

There are no soy ingredients listed but the label says “may contain soy” – not that is manufactured in a plant that uses soy ingredients, just that it may contain soy. Well, does it or doesn’t it? I like cooking with the sticks and it’s good on vegetables and the like. Hey, it’s not butter, but it is a good alternative.

Response from Go Dairy Free

If you are concerned about potential cross contamination with an allergen in manufacturing, then you must contact the company to discuss their protocols. “may contain” statements are voluntary, unregulated, and do not have uniform wording. A lack of one, a note of “made in the factory,” or a “may contain” should not be used as guides to the safety of a product for food allergic needs.

Two thumbs up

Plant butter gets two thumbs up. I was so sure it would be disappointing like most “alternative” products, but it is great!!!

So far I find the olive oil plant butter to be exceptional. Tricking my taste buds. I’m amazed. Will try the almond oil one next. My cholesterol numbers thank you!

We love the flavor and texture of the avocado oil sticks to spread on toast or use in baked goods in place of butter. We also love how it doesn’t harden completely in the refrigerator like butter would and can use it right away without softening first. My husband loves the flavor too! He’s a butter lover, but he doesn’t care if I use plant butter instead, that’s how good it tastes.
However, we have not had great success with frying/sauté applications. He likes to use pats of butter in the pan, and the plant butter just makes a mess. We have better luck using a cooking oil instead for those applications.
We definitely recommend this product! We buy 2 packages every time we go to the store.

Like using shortening (like Crisco). Sautéed some vegetables and as soon as they cooled down, it solidified into grease. Yuk. I tried it in several different uses, and the only way I’ll use it is to grease cake pans and cookie sheets.

I’ve been a butter lover for decades. So for me to switch to a margarine is a big deal. I’m very impressed. So much so that I may never go back.

I used the avocado based to sauté the onions and make the sauce. It turned out great. The dr said I needed to increase my omega 3. So hopefully this will help.

I bought the avocado oil sticks. The taste is fantastic. I had to stop butter because of cholesterol and these plant based butters have no cholesterol. Tonight I am fixing candied yams and putting lots of this plant butter on. I highly recommend this product!
