Country Crock Plant Butter Tubs Help Spread More Dairy-Free Options

0

It’s wonderful to see a widely distributed brand come out with dairy-free options, and Country Crock has released five of them! They’ve launched three plant-based buttery sticks and two plant-based buttery spread tubs. In this post, I’m covering the Country Crock Plant Butter Tubs in detail, but you can read about and rate the sticks on this other post.

At first, I assumed that Country Crock’s Plant Butter Sticks were the best option for baking. But they state that Country Crock Plant Butter Tubs are “excellent for cooking, baking, and spreading” too. However, these product lines do have different formulas.

The tubs contain soy (oil and lecithin), while the sticks do not. But the tubs are made with faba bean protein instead of pea protein, like the sticks. So I suspect your preference will come down to taste or dietary need, rather than the packaging.

The two tubs, or “buttery spreads” as I like to call them, are almost identical. But one has a splash of almond oil, and the other olive oil.
