Last year, we shared the news of Trader Joe’s Vegan Buttery Spread, so you might be wondering what’s different. Both products are dairy-free and vegan-friendly, but they do have a very different format and formula. Instead of a stick, Trader Joe’s Organic Buttery Plant-Based Spread is sold in a tub. It’s also certified organic and free of any added proteins.
Trader Joe’s Goes Organic with this Buttery Plant-Based Spread
This rich, buttery blend has the perfect melt atop pancakes, but can also be whipped with other ingredients for dairy-free compound “butters,” icings, and more. It should also work in many baking applications (muffins, breads, etc), but might not be ideal for things like cookies.
Ingredients: organic oil blend (organic coconut oil, organic palm fruit oil, organic canola oil, organic high-oleic sunflower oil, organic flaxseed oil), water, sea salt, sunflower lecithin powder, organic natural flavor, mixed tocopherols, organic annatto extract (color)

Who Makes Trader Joe’s Organic Buttery Plant-Based Spread?
This product appears to be identical to Melt Organic Buttery Spread. It really just looks like they changed the brand label, but nothing else. So if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s locally, just look for Melt Organic in stores!

I was using another brand dairy free butter-like spread until the recipe was changed without notice several years ago. After many complaints from many consumers, the manufacturer promised to go back to the original recipe by last year. But since there has been no notice nor does the label say anything other than “original recipe” which was ALWAYS on the container, I have refused to purchase it again. So, I have tried several brands since. While they were all passable to good, I did not find anything that was GREAT until I tried this Trader Joe’s brand. I hit the jackpot with that one! Just too bad that it takes more than an hour to get to the closest Trader Joes. So my next review will be how it tastes after being stored in the freezer! But if you have access, get it!
Great taste and consistency!
It is so delicious and creamy; I actually prefer this to the dairy version!
Perfect buttery blend
This Organic Buttery Plant-Based Spread recipe is mind-blowing and the gourmet recipe of my dreams.
