  1. It came as a very nasty shock to discover that Anchor Butter no longer comes from happy Kiwi cows and hasn’t for some time.

    I always made a point of buying it just because it was a NZ product.

  2. Ottokring: I bought it because I liked it. And the stuff they sell now under that label just isn’t Anchor butter.

    MC: Wiltshire. It’s made by Arla now, as is Lidl’s own brand, and while I won’t say it’s the same stuff because I don’t know that for certain, I can’t tell the difference.

  3. I can heartily recommend Lidl’s Butter with Sea Salt crystals. Animal Fat for the arteries and salt for the blood pressure*. Bliss…..

    * For those who believe in such bullshit.

  4. If you know where the pork actually comes from…. not surprising..

    Give the PRC a year to solve that one. While the dutch pig farmers get EU’d and freshly-moved-in NIMBY’d into oblivion.

    Yarp, years since, and its just not so good any more. Used to be a genuine quality product, now it is very ordinary. I suggest Yeo Valley organic butter, I like it, and their milk.

  6. Living in New Zealand, I would suggest that the main driver of inflation here is the bunch of incompetents who are “governing” the country.Princess Jacinda has quietly parked the idea of going republican for the moment as she is busy packing her bags while waiting for the invite to the Coronation.I hope it may be the last time she goes anywhere as Prime Minister as she is likely to be ditched in the election next year.You can all look forward to her probable new gig at the United Nations.
