Nothing in life is free, but I'll take a half pound of delicious, nutrient-dense butter from grass-fed cows for $1—$1!—any day of the week.
Here's the deal. On packages of Kerrygold Dubliner cheddar cheese (available at many stores, including Whole Foods, where it sells for a ridiculously-low $2.84 for a seven-ounce package), there is a manufacturer's coupon good for $2 off one package of Kerrygold butter.
Conveniently, Whole Foods also sells half-pound packages (two sticks) of sublime Kerrygold butter for $2.99; use the $2 coupon and you're paying only . . . oh, you do the math!
Considering that bland name-brand conventional butters (from milk from cows administered hormones and fed feed full of antibiotics plus genetically-engineered and pesticide-laden corn and soy) cost $4 to $6 per pound (four sticks), I'm going to fill my freezer with almost-free Kerrygold butter. (Yes, butter will stay in the freezer for many months, if not longer.)
