    Reader Poll

    People across Canada have been waking up to find putting the spread on their toast a bit tougher.

    Has your butter changed from how you remember it?

    Starting with a cookbook author’s comment on Twitter, Canadians began to share how the butter they were using wasn’t as soft as they were used to after leaving it out.

    The Dairy Farmers of Canada even officially asked its members to consider not using palm oil in their feed as a potential reason for why people have been encountering harder butter.

    Of course, a part of how hard your better is depends on how you like to keep your kitchen.

    Let us know how you feel about your butter by voting in our poll below.
