  • Hard to spread

    3 out of 5

    Whilst this one tastes nice and creamy when left in the fridge it is very hard to spread. You need to have it left out at room temperature in order for it to be a nice spreadable consistency. It’s also a little on the pricey side.

  • Nice smooth texture

    4.5 out of 5

    This spread has a nice smooth texture and doesn’t leave any wierd after taste like some do. Also easy to use in cooking when you need butter

  • Good

    3 out of 5

    As almost pure butter, this has a great energy and calcium content, but is incredibly hard to spread. It tastes delicious, and is good for putting on weight.

  • Better than margarine 109%

    3.5 out of 5

    I use this all the time and find it really good tasting and easy to spread and it doesn’t taste like margarine either. It tastes like butter. Even though it has an oil in it to keep it spreadable it’s one of the better ones to use. Would recommend highly.

  • Good butter

    3.5 out of 5

    The name isn’t a lie – it is very spreadable, unlike others on the market. Also has a lovely taste that compliments what its paired with. Not salty.

  • Yummiest

  • Delicious

    4.5 out of 5

    This is a staple in our household. Nothing beats this on toast with Vegemite in the morning!
    This butter spreads easily and has a very creamy rich flavour.

  • So good!

    5 out of 5

    This is by far my favourite one. It is spreadable and taste just like real butter. Always have it available in my fridge as a must have/ staple item.

  • Great taste

    5 out of 5

    A beautiful spreadable butter. The texture is lovely, smooth and silky, has that beautiful butter taste. Lovely on fresh bread, toast, crumpets or pancakes.

  • Easy to use

    4 out of 5

    This butter is really nice, even if it’s just spread on a plain piece of bread, compared to a lot of other butters this is really easy to spread and doesn’t put holes in your bread. This is always available in our fridge.

  • surprised

    3.5 out of 5

    I’d always leaned toward cheaper butters and had not really thought that they could taste much different, but tried this at a family members house and was very surprised to see how lovely it was.

  • Best butter ever

    5 out of 5

    Don’t judge me, (even though the thought makes me sick) I would eat just this butter on bread or a biscuit… it tastes that good!

  • My fridge staple

    3 out of 5

    My family really love this butter, so I have to always have it in the fridge. Personally I prefer using a block of butter to spreadable, as I believe it tastes much better, but still I’m happy to indulge the family in their choice.

  • Spreadable is convenient

    4 out of 5

    This is a convenient spread but I prefer the block of butter compared to a spreadable variety. I feel it’s only good for spreading on bread and not for other types of cooking; happy to be correct however

  • Nice butter taste

    4 out of 5

    This spread has a nice butter taste. We use it on toasts, in cooking (melted butter has the best smell!) and as a flavouring for veges.

  • Nope

    1 out of 5

    This western star spread has a fairly unpleasant taste to it, its very distinct and a bit pungent. I’d rather avoid it. It does spread well though, just not a flavour for me

  • Great on bread

    4.5 out of 5

    I use this on toast, bread and anytime I need a thin layer. Easy to spread and good taste. I do not use it in cooking I prefer solid butter.

  • Delicious and creamy

    5 out of 5

    Delicious, soft and creamy and easily spreadable and meltable . Great for toast, toasties, sandwiches, baked goods, and so much more. A great five star product

  • Best butter in town

    5 out of 5

    I grow up with margarine but I have been using western star butter for over ten years now and love it. I would definitely recommend it to everyone to buy.

  • Fantastic

    3.5 out of 5

    I find western star to be the top butter. So full of flavour and melts so deliciously. I’d buy all the time if it wasn’t so expensive

  • Family favourite butter

    5 out of 5

    The western star soft butter is very smooth and tastes wonderful. It doesn’t destroy the bread or toast and has the right amount of salt.

  • Yes please

    2.5 out of 5

    I find westernstar has the best butter flavour of all the spreads. It is an iconic brand that features in most hospitality places but I don’t purchase myself due to the cost

  • Buy it regularly

  • The best spreadbale butter

    5 out of 5

    I personally love this butter it has such a rich buttery taste that’s simply good all on it’s own on a piece of sourdough or any bread but also sandwiches too

  • Great

    4.5 out of 5

    This has a great real butter taste and is really easy to spread. It’s great for sandwiches and toast and we use it to fry eggs in, gives them a great taste

  • Real butter without the hassle

    3.5 out of 5

    Great tasting butter that is easily spread straight from the fridge. The only reason it didn’t get more stars is the cost. It’s a great product but a tad on the exy side

  • Only butter I'll buy

    4 out of 5

    This has the taste of butter we had when I was younger, but a spreadable version. My only complaint is when a particular family member forgets to put it away (especially in summer) and comes back to it 20 mins later. At this point once it is refrigerated, it is no longer spreadable unless it is left out first. But taking what you need into a small dish and quick microwaving or placing it near a heat source, will quickly soften the butter.

  • Western Star

    5 out of 5

    Western Star is another spread that we like to eat in our household. This spread is creamy and yummy and oh so good on scones.

  • Always in my fridge

    4.5 out of 5

    Western star butter is our choice if butters. It tastes delicious and is always soft enough to spread straight from the fridge. We always have a couple on hand

  • Good but not spreadable straight from the fridge

    4 out of 5

    This is, in my opinion, the best quality butter – however it is not spreadable straight from the fridge and its a little frustrating that I need to take it out for half an hour before I want to use it.

  • Very good!
