Cuba has that problem on & off. Sometimes it's true, usually it's just hiding or needs replenishing.

We were at another resort in Jan. and a few people were complaining about no butter at the buffet but it was right there, they didn't see it. I actually had to escort someone to the butter dish to show them.

People expect to see butter like Canada but it is more like a big bowl with a bunch of chunks that are half thawed, half frozen and much lighter in colour. I doubt it is pure butter.

There butter does taste odd, so I did not use it. I actually enjoy not having everything we have at home. It is only 7 days, and a nice break. I also find I loose a few pounds, so its a good way to start the summer, down a few pounds.

We do however take Hot sauce.

Call me "Crazy" (most of my friends do anyway).

but I Much prefer the "butter" in Cuba, over the "semi hydrogenated, yet still based on a lactate produced" product we get here in Canada.

And, IMHO the ketchup in Cuba is far superior to anything we can get here at home... It isn't truly "hot" but it has more kick, than the tomato paste we get here.?

Are you saying butter in Canada is semi hydrogenated???? Yes, I think you are crazy.

There are a lot of people who think the food in Cuba is more natural and wholesome. That is only true if you eat a diet of rice and beans.

I can't prove it because I have not done a chemical analysis but I strongly suspect the 'butter' in Cuba is virtually all saturated vegetable oil in it and very little butter. The taste is nowhere close to a dairy product and very much like the margarine that used to be sold in the 50's. Just about the worst oil you can eat for your heart.

I do know that some Cuban resorts carry better butter and some have the bad stuff, as I have experienced both.

I think the butter in Cuba is pretty much all imported. I have seen butter from the Netherlands, Spain and Argentina. According to the labels, it is all dairy origin. The difference seems to be that it is usually unsalted butter, which is healthier anyway.

I like the ketchup too, Gambitt.
