Whole Foods used to carry a wonderful brand of butter from the Strauss Dairy in California.:
http://www.strausfamilycreamery.com/?... (oops, it didn't copy as a link, but you can cut & paste).
It seemed to be a very popular item in their stores, and they would often run out around the Holidays and other times, as well; and yet they suddenly stopped carrying it a few months back (all stores, apparently). The dairy website is still up and seems to be functional..
Does anyone have any input on this? The dairy managers in the stores seem to be perplexed by this, as well.
It had a wonderful flavor, and it was the absolute best for baking. I really miss being able to purchase it. It is European style (higher butterfat content, less moisture, grass fed cows, etc.).. Whole Foods has other choices, but none of them are as good as the Strauss butter.
Just curious if anyone out there in Chowhound Land might know anything about this.
