    Default Ehat the heck happened to stick margerine?

    It's the season to be cooking again. I am ready to make all the
    holiday faves, I always liked to use Parkay margerine in all my
    pastries and pies, and stuffing, etc. But so far I have been unable to
    find any Parkay stick margerine anywhere. Lso the selection
    of stick margerine is very limited mainly Imperial and Blue Bonnet(both
    of which I don't care for)
    Does anyhone have any idea what's going on with the stick margerine?

    Can you explain why you use margarine rather than butter? Is it a taste thing
    or do you perfer the texture using margarine?

    People realized that standard margarine was less healthy than real
    butter, so now they are either back to using real butter, or off to one
    of the horrid "healthy" pseudo-margarine substitutes.

    Well, I don't use fake butter, but I am curious - why do you like
    Parkay better than the other brands? What is the significant
    difference?

    Oh my, Linda, you've probably been using marg for so long you've forgot how
    much better your cookies and such would be with butter. Go ahead, give it a
    try!

    The other ones don't say "butter". Or give you advice
    about the enemies plotting against you.

    One "legitimate" reason I'm aware of for using margarine rather than
    butter is if you're making a lot of structural gingerbread, and you
    don't want to spend the money for real butter.

    I gather, though, the results are different (extrapolating from
    what I have read about butter vs. shortening in cookies). I
    haven;t explored that because the thought of using shortening
    disgusts me.

    What you mean, then, is what the heck happened to Parkay?

    I use BlueBonnet when I need stick margerine - the good ol' baking
    kind, not the watery kind. No problems.

    Actually it's old family recipes handed down, and my grandmother insisted
    only to use Parkay so the rest of us never tried anything different to keep
    the recipe original

    You might be wise to do this with cookies that you have no
    preconceived notion about, since the results will most likely not
    be the same. (I have been telling myself this about the
    Worcestershire Sauce made in England, among other things.)
