Plumeau, I can't help myself. The word for street market is tianguis, always with an 's' at the end, whether it's singular (one tianguis) or plural (two or more tianguis).

I'm delirious with joy, it's a butter thread! Travis, Computer Guy, where are you? It's a butter thread! Just for the record, I buy and love Kirkland butter, sin sal, made in the USA by Tillamook,

The word that comes to mind for most Mexican butter is rancid, but that's only because I can't quite place it. It has an odd smell that is noticeable at any restaurant that cooks shrimp or anything el

Check the PROFECO site that reviews butter and margerines. I should not have said Belgium co should have said Belgium. The fact that Lala is Mexican does not prevent it from importing butter from Belgium..They also were reported as having less butter in the packaged than mentioned on the packaging..

The site does have a report that says country of origin is Belgica... for the untable or spreadable. (http://www.profeco.gob.mx/revista/pdf/est_06/mantequillas_ene06.pdf) But that's all I could find at the moment: nothing about the regular Lala butter.

For the past few years I have been trying to get Costco to bring down Kirkland salted butter. The store manager on Lopez Mateo (I think that's the street), Manual Miel is behind my effort, he agrees it is needed here with the large amount of ex pats looking for it.

Listed below is the e-mail of the buyer for Costco. I suggest those of you who really want salted butter e-mail Paty with your request and maybe ask to speak with Manual the next time you're shopping there and let him know, maybe some pressure will convince them to stock it here in Mexico.

The response I received from Paty (quite a while ago) was that she was working on it but there were certain restrictions by the Mexican government who are making it difficult.

And you're not the only one, although we thank you for your efforts. This has been going on for years, and if it was going to be resolved, it woulda been by now.

Please explain he meaning (in english) of "d'avertising." Is it the same as "advertising?" This is a sincere question.

computer guy that is what you call the regular butter. Just taste it.

i bought a stick of Lala butter yesterday, and I must say, spread on a warm bun, it tasted perfectly good to me. No rancid smell or taste, and talk about a lot cheaper than imported... unsalted, of course, but hey.

CostCo in Zapopan had tons of Kirkland unsalted butter in both sizes today, Thursday December 3, 2015. $132p for TWO 454g packages.

EIFT: I made a serious mistake yesterday... looking at the package, I thought the whole thing was 454g. So the price is actually $66p per, which is substantially cheaper than Lurpak or any of the others.

It's Costco.

Well if we are allowed to bring in Canada into the discussion, I'd like to know what is so special about this Alberta company, Foothills Creamery, that they have had to turn down $3 million in orders because they simply can't get enough cream.

Is butter the new bacon for 2016?

M, I'm sure I saw salted Lala at Walmart SAT, at the bottom of the cooler where Lala is stacked from top to bottom.

Also worth mentioning, that among the many acquisitions in Mexico and the US by Lala, is Borden's, making it one the largest dairy products operation in the world. They have a multitude of brand names in different regions of Mexico and the US.

Have you ever had Lala unsalted? I never have but then I do not buy salt butter, In France salt butter is somewhat of a specialty or regional item. When we say butter we mean unsalted so I never look for salted butter. If I want to add salt to it I can alwasy do that.

His first language is French, so I see the confusion and it is quite understandable.

Yes, he means advertising. D'AVERTISEMENT, in French.

Avertissement means warning

And avertising was just a miss spell, should have read advertising instead

Sorry for the confusion I created

But like the y say " Pobody's nerfect"

This is not directed at you but in general does anyone look at their post before hitting "submit"? I don't think many do.
