    Finally - a worthy vegan alternative to butter!

    I had previously used the Becel vegan margarine in baking for vegan friends and had a great experience (so much so that my guests actually enjoyed the vegan desserts more than the standard ones!). When I found out that Becel had come out with a vegan, plant-based alternative to butter, I was excited to give it a try as I'm not the biggest fan of margarine. This definitely didn't disappoint. I didn't find that this butter affected the texture or consistency of my baking, but there was a slightly noticeable difference in taste - not a bad taste, but just different from the norm (for reference, I'm also the type of person who immediately tastes when there are artificial sweeteners in something, so my tastebuds tend to be more sensitive). I also liked that this was quicker to soften up than regular butter, which makes it much easier to bake on a whim! I'm so relieved to have found this product and will be a lot less stressed the next time I'm invited to a vegan friend's potluck - this honestly makes it so much easier to whip up any of my regular treats and make it vegan!

    I #gotitfree to try through the FamilyRated Club.

    A product that surprised me!

    I picked up this product as something to try, especially for my husband who cannot tolerate any dairy product. I used 2 TBSP of the unsalted Becel Plant Based Bricks to caramelize some wild leeks and I had to re-read to package to ensure it was dairy-free as when it hit the pan, it sure smelled and looked like butter! I love the easy to use measurements on the sticks, and the convenient stick sizes (typically as butter substitutes we use margarine). Really great product that I can't wait to use for all my baking recipes!

    Great Butter Alternative

    I had the opportunity to try Becel Plant-Based Bricks (unsalted) courtesy of Family Rated. I first used the product to make Rice Krispy squares. One advantage that I noticed immediately was the fact that the product is soft right out of the fridge. No more having to take out the butter in advance when you want to bake! I haven't used Becel to cook with before but it seemed to have the same results as using butter, including the taste. The brick format makes it easy to measure out exact amounts for a recipe. This product has fewer calories and grams of fat compared to a pound of butter, and the price point is about the same. I would certainly consider purchasing this product for my baking needs in future.

    Fonctionne bien dans les desserts

    J'ai eu la chance d'essayer la brique de Becel non-salé et j'ai été agréablement surprise. Il y a certains indicateurs de mesure sur le papier d'emballage, ce qui rend la tâche facile lorsque vient le temps de couper la bonne quantité. J'ai cuisiner deux desserts différents avec le becel non-salé et c'était délicieux. Comparativement au beurre, je n'ai pas remarqué de différence au niveau du goût. Un peu dispendieux toutefois...

    Belle alternative

    Pour ceux qui veulent limiter leur consommation de beurre tout en gardant la possibilité d'utiliser des cubes dans des recettes de pâtisserie!!! La texture est parfaite et le goût se rapproche du beurre sans sel, le meilleur des deux mondes

    Great vegan alternative!

    I have been doing so much baking during quarantine that I go through butter like water in this household. I was so excited to try a plant based alternative to see how it compared to the usual brands of butter that I buy. My first impression of the Becel Unsalted Plant-Based Brick was that it looks exactly like dairy butter. It melts really fast due to the oils in it so if you need it to stay cold during baking prep, I found that putting it in the freezer for five minutes really helps. I make my own pie crusts and puff pastry so I decided to put this to the test! The butter was very easy to work and mixed in with the dough seamlessly. I honestly could not tell the difference in taste between this and actual butter. My pie crusts and puff pastries came out crispy each and every single time. Although the price is a little bit steep, I will continue to use this in baking for my vegan friends.

    I received this product free to try in exchange for my honest review. #gotitfree #BecelPlantBasedBricks #ButterLoversLoveIt

    A Healthy Substitute

    I am a regular Becel margarine user because it is a healthier alternative to butter, but find it hard to measure out. I was excited to try Becel plant based bricks as I figured it would be healthy and convenient. Happy to say is much easier to measure due to the gradings on the package. Very smart!
    Taste was good, and very smooth. I have tested it as a substitution for lard in my banana bread, and worked great. I have used instead of butter to fry and worked well. Overall I was happy with this product and will be adding it to my staples list.

    Just as good as butter

    I was impressed with how the Becel unsalted plant basis brick performed. Unless you were able to compare for taste and texture side by side one cannot tell the difference from butter. I tried it on toast and although the butter side tasted creamier, it didn't affect taste. I baked cookies with half the recipes using Becel and the other half with butter. The Becel cookies were a little flatter but overall, I could not tell a difference in taste. It is softer to use and cut through but overall, it's a great substitute for butter.
