The pros: Trader Joe’s Unsalted Butter is good quality butter. It’s comparable to what you get in the supermarket, but it’s not European level better.
The cons: The stick size is completely different. I had to reexamine the package a few times to make sure I actually bought a pound of butter (I did). See my pictures as to why the butter dish may not be the best place for this.
The verdict: For $2.69 it may or may not be cheaper than the butter you’d get on sale at your local market. I’d bake with this, but won’t put it in a butter dish a serve to guests because I didn’t realize they made the stick of butter in a different dimension.
