2 Rolling meadow butter for $6.00. Stock up for your baking. Thats the best price I have seen for a long time!

That's a good price but I like to buy butter that hasn't got water added ie just cream and salt

I find the Rolling Meadows cheese quite tasteless compared to, for example, Mainland.Is all butter equal or are some diluted with water as a previous poster stated.

When I checked the labels a while ago there was only one brand that didn't have water and I "think" it was Tararua. I was surprised to see Mainland had water on it's list of ingred.as I consider it to be one of the better tasting It might be that some bulk it with more water cos there certainly is a difference and it shows in the finished baking result.

Water is listed as an ingredient soley because they use it to wash the buttermilk off the butter solids. If they didn't, it would soon turn rancid!

I've always assumed that all butter is pretty equal in NZ and they just put different wrappers on

Rolling Meadow butter isn't from NZ - it shows as packed in NZ - near Temuka, from memory when I checked it out and asked Countdown about it a while ago. I check all butter to see where it's made now.

Well it says on the front of the pack "product of New Zealand" and on the back it says "manufactured for Dairy Works Ltd, Fraser Street, Temuka".It wouldn't say "product of New Zealand" if it was made in Australia, or heaven forbid, China - would it!

Also says the ingredients are: Cream, Water, Salt - and then adds that it contains milk products.
