[Fresh Co] Gay Lea Grass-Fed Butter (250 g) $1.97

Saw last week people going nuts for Costco butter at $3.99 max quantities of 25 per person and people were walking out with boxes.

Figured I would post this then. This seems like a ATL and a price I have not seen in years.

Edit* yes it is the smaller one but simple math still is cheaper then the $3.99 Costco price. Thank you for the math lesson.

Reason: added detail to title, original was: Butter $1.97
Thread Summary
Hot deal. First couple posts are exemplars of dangers of not comparing unit price and jumping to conclusions from ballpark estimation.

Earlier Costco deal: 87.9¢/100g
This deal: 78.8¢/100g ✅

Decent deal.

Its 250 grams...so for a lb (454g....or in this case 500grams)....the lb would be less than $3.99! Cheaper than the Costco price.

This is "Grass Fed" butter and so it is more expensive than the regular butter.
So, yes it may be an ATL.

And also half the price. $4 for a brick of full size grass fed butter is a very good deal even in pre-inflation times.

Not only is the brick smaller, but Gay Lea.

Costco sells Natrel butter.

Unless you're buying butter from the U.S. where they feed cows corn, grass fed is standard in Canada.

1.97 for 250g so it is equal to about 3.59 for a full size one (1 lb).

"Grass Fed" is a standard. Most cows are fed by other means. Dairy cows I don't know but here is the standard for "Grass Fed"

It is not the same product being sold at Costco for $3.99.
It is a "better" product than Gay Lea's regular stuff.

If you ask farmers, this isn’t true. It’s not much more than a marketing campaign. The “grass fed” standard just means 75% grass which is what dairy cows eat normally. Big producers are simply willing to pay for this branding and audit.

“Claims of “grass-fed” and “milk from cows fed grass year round” have been recently appearing on store shelves within the GTA. Again, designed to sound new, fresh and novel. These statements are not accurate at best and are very misleading. By definition “grass-fed” means that the animal grazes on fresh green grass during its lifetime, a title that was meant and approved for beef cattle in Canada, and was not ever intended to be associated with the dairy industry.

This is a claim that we will not make, as it is very much misleading and would be in our eye’s false marketing and advertising. The fact is, our cows are grazing on organic pastures as long as Mother Nature allows, meaning they are "grass-fed" from spring to fall. During the winter months they are fed organic hay and grains, as fresh grass simply does not grow in winter. No dairy can make the claim that “our cows are grass-fed year round”, as this is impossible in Canada, and simply isn’t the truth.”

$4 for 500g butter is still excellent
plus 'Grass Fed" adds a very big premium
the main problem for most will be getting it
