Fake butter at restaurants

gmm | Dec 29, 201107:16 AM

Went to a steakhouse last night with family for dinner. It's a fairly large nationwide chain, but they have pretty decent food. I ordered a baked potato with butter as a side. After receiving my food, I tasted the potato and realized that the whipped "butter" was not actual butter, but a butter flavored spread. I love butter, and I can recognize the difference between the real stuff and a fake. Honestly, I think this is probably the first time I've ever gotten a baked potato with the fake stuff on it. It annoys me enough when something is advertised as crab, when it's actually "krab," but now am I going to have start asking if I'm getting real butter or "butter spread?" Is this something more and more restaurants are starting to do? Am I going to have to start carrying a stick of butter in my purse? :)
