It's true, Americans love the slimy mouth feel that comes with butter. Why do you think corn syrup is in all U.S. food?

I live in the U.S. and both grocery stores in my town refuse to carry most products with HFCS in it, and that's not exactly an uncommon trend. Maybe it's an east coast thing.

Where I live corn syrup is frowned upon as well. Pathmark, Shop Rite etc won't bother carrying products that have any of that high fructose garbage in it, and I live on the east coast. A lot of grocery stores, including chain supermarkets, are trying to move away from selling products that contain HFCS. Despite what some corn refiner retards say, it's still pretty dangerous.

 

Either this JIMHO guy is talking out of his ass or he's taking a jest at us Americans.

I live on the East Coast and it's almost impossible to find stores that are HFCS-free. The most we have is a healthy section at Giant. And even so, it's ridiculously expensive to shop there. 

 

You'll notice that many supermarkets explicitly claim that they're not removing HFCS because "the government pressured them to do so", which to me is a bit fishy. HFCS is a major factor in obesity, and managing an epidemic of obesity costs a whole lot a money. So whether they do it because they actually care about our health is probably unlikely, but still, I guess it's an overall win in the end either way.

Midwest US and HFCS is still going strong. You have to actively search for natural sugar or non-sugar products.

 

I don't often put butter on my sandwiches, but I do put butter on bread to eat by itself, though if I'm at Subway or another sandwich chain I usually get mayo or another sauce.

If You eat that white fiberless garbage sandwich, it's all the same what You put on it.
Dark flourless rye bread, with margarine and some veggies on it.

I only use butter on toast, or if I'm cooking something. I strictly use mayo on sandwiches, as spreading butter would be sacrilege.

I don't get why you couldn't ask this in the question topic rather than make a thread about it, but okay. 
When I was a kid, I ate butter on my bread but now I think that's gross, same with margarine. I only like butter on a toasted bagel.

Americans liking corn syrup for its mucous mouth feel is actually what they're teaching U.S. university food science students.

Pffft sandwiches. Does anyone even eat sandwiches? I swear it's a myth that these things even exist.

 

Personally I hate them. They take too much time and effort. I prefer to just peel or rip something open and immediately devour the contents, better yet if I can just sink my ugly discoloured straight into it. Like an apple. I eat about 3 or 4 of those puppies a day. On the rare occasion that I can be bothered to indulge myself in the unnecessary sandwich making process, I always avoid butter. Which leaves me at increased risk of filler slippage. If I had an apple for all the times I'm about to take a bite and all I get is bread, because the chicken and pepper have fallen out, well let's just say I'd have a lot of bushels. Another reason I avoid sandwiches. 

 

I see the need for it, but I don't like the taste or the principle of it.

Butter is at its tastiest when dipped in batter and deep fried- a dish that regularly pops up on the cuisine section of a Scottish brochure. Or on the flatscreens at the local gym.

Yeah...people already mentioned the obvious grilled cheese(most any grilled sandwich), toast,  dinner rolls,  etc.  But I have a new found use for butter (I can't believe it took me this long);  frying a hotdog in a pan of butter is fantastic.

 

I made myself a tasty reuben last night - that falls into the category of sandwiches grilled with butter.

Here in America, we usually just take a stick of butter or two and put them between two pieces of bread. After that, we dip the sandwich in batter and deep fry it for extra flavor.

This sounds like it would make a great breakfast. 

 

OT: I pretty much use butter is almost everything, sometimes sandwiches. But it's still hard to beat some freshly baked bread with butter spread on it. Also, having buttered bread for breakfast and dipping it in your coffee. Do it.

They'd be the embarrassed ones. Embarrassed when I give them a public dressing down for not cooking my damn food properly.

I don't normally like butter or margarine, but there are few things more delicious than butter on freshly baked bread, still warm. Nothing else, just butter. Same with croissants!!

I don't use butter at all, but I've seen it at my local food market, selling a pack with 4 sticks for $6 dollars or so.

You know what might be better? Frying a hot dog in bacon grease. Hamburgers taste really good that way.

Here in my country we have the legit butter with no cientific stuff added to it, and I love putting it on sandwiches.

The thought of simply taking a bite out of that nearly gave a heart attack and quite possibly a stroke... :blink:
