    Easy to Use

    I used this for one of my baking recipes. I didn’t have to soften it in the microwave as it was already soft. From what I tasted, it was pretty similar to normal bitter. There was no difference in taste. I would definitely use it again.

    Great value but Taste could be better

    I was initially pleased when I opened the Becel brick. It was spreadable and when I saw the price in the store, I thought it was good value for the money. But I was disappointed in the taste. I tried cooking with it and really liked the texture and how it blended with my meal. After using it for various different things over the week, I have decided I would buy this again but only use it to cook with.

    Great for every day life

    I really love the idea of having the plant based brick as an easy alternative to butter it spreads great and has a good taste. We do use salted butter so it was a bit of an adjustment but still very good!

    Easier to work with than butter

    I made shortbread cookies with the Becel bricks. Basically, in terms of the baking process, the Becel brick is definitely easier to work with - they make a more stable dough, and soften up much quicker than butter. However, flavour-wise, I don't taste butteriness and it was disappointing, especially for a shortbread recipe. If I were to do more testing, I might try adding some milk powder or buttermilk powder to boost the dairy flavour, but it would defeat the purpose of choosing a plant-based fat. My conclusion was that I would still likely choose butter over this for the flavour. However if I need a dough that’s stable to manipulate at room temperature, or if I’m baking with children , I would choose this because it keeps its texture better than butter. I do have 3 sticks still in my freezer, so I'll continue to test different baking recipes. I'm hoping to try it for laminated dough at some point as the stability might be advantageous.

    Excellent

    I received this product free to test and review. #gotitfree
    I had never tried plant-based 'butter' before and was pleasantly surprised that it tasted like regular butter! Delicious! This plant-based brick behaves much like margarine with the texture and taste of butter. I cooked and baked with it in the same way that I would use regular butter and didn't notice a difference in taste.

    The Same As Margarine

    I received this product free for review purposes.
    This plant-based brick behaves much like margarine with the texture and taste of butter. I cooked and baked with it in the same way that I would use regular butter and didn't notice a difference in taste.
    I think this is a great alternative for individuals looking to transition to a plant-based diet, or already consuming a plant-based diet.
    That being said, I don't think there's much of a difference between this and regular margarine other than the packaging and presentation.

    Plant based? Who would have known

    On toast or cooking or baking we have been using Becel plant based unsalted brick and its wonderful.
    Great smooth flavor.
    We will be purchasing as our new staple for our baking butter.

    Pleasant Surprise

    I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I typically use butter when baking not margarine so I was excited to try this product out. I found that it provided a similar taste and consistency to my cookies. It did not take as long to soften compared to butter, which was nice as I often forget to pull the butter out ahead of time. It is a comparative price to butter so I would consider buying it again.

    You butter believe this is good!

    I will start by saying that we are a butter family and very rarely purchase margarine. I was pleasantly surprised when I subbed the unsalted Plant Based Becel for butter in one of our favourite cheese biscuit recipes. My husband didn’t notice a difference, and honestly - neither did I! The taste and texture in every step was amazing and I will definitely purchase again! Thanks Becel and Family Rated for allowing me to try this new product for free
