Substitute Goods


One thing about not being able to procure your usual brands of products in these straitened times is that you get to try out substitute brands instead.

From this, I can confidently state that what the French describe as "spreadable" butter uses a somewhat broader definition of the word "spreadable" than that adopted by manufacturers from Denmark, New Zealand and Britain. In contrast, when they say their butter is "slightly" salted, they may as well just say "salted".

Fortunately, it doesn't make a lot of difference when you put it on toast and slather it in raspberry jam.
