    So they say, but if you don't eat everyday it shouldn't be much of a problem. Some margarines taste as good as butter.

    I think butter is better for you. Most of the margarines are solid vegetable oils. I think butter is a more natural ingredient. I also think you use less because it has a taste.
    I was told that margarine was originally made to fatten turkeys.

    Moderation will remove the issue of gaining weight. It is important to note however that butter is a natural product while margarine is man made and in no way comparable to real butter. Give yourself a break and enjoy real butter in moderation.

    Do not know.........will not debate beyond this observation............

    in your own backyard........

    lay out a stick of butter, beside
    a stick of margarine........

    WHICH of these do the flies swarm to?

    Hey, if flies shun it?....................

    YOU decide for your family and I will decide for mine.  We can cut fat and calories elsewhere.

    I don't use margarine if I can help it because it contains the types of fat that are bad for you.
    Butter is much nicer, but unfortunately I love it so much that I eat too much, and therefore it makes me fatter!
    I would advise butter - but in moderation!

    Butter is a real product made with ingredients of nature and Margarine is manufactured so of course Butter is better for you and won't make you fat.  Just ask Paula Dean.  Didn't she invent the fried stick of butter?  No.  I'm 50 lbs overweight and I ate margarine for years till I discovered butter and how you don't need much of it to make food taste good and margarine you have to slather on in large doses.  Butter Wins!
