U guys gotta use ODells Butter Fat. Its real Butter Fat with the water taken out. Its awesome tastes great and you can actually advertise it as Butter instead of "Topping". It is expensive but well worth it your customers will buy a lot more corn!

Sean, What size containers does Odells come in. I just have some little 5 or 6 oz containers of it and haven't even tried it yet.

I get the Anhyrdous Butterfat and it comes in a case of 4 10# jugs. You have to melt it in order to pour it into your pump dispenser but everyone seems to LOVE it. A case costs around $146 so it is not cheap but it is very well received. I think there is some volume pricing if you are bigger then me (most likely).

One of the other independants around me serves it but charges an up charge for the real butter other wise you get the regular topping.

Have any of you figured out how the poundage converts? I've wondered how many gallons that works out to.

If the liquid is water, this is the conversion, but butterfat will probably weigh slightly more.

1 gal = 8.346 lbs

So in this case...

40 lbs = 4.79 gal

Let's round 40 lbs of butterfat up to 5 gals, so we're looking at $146 for 5 gals, which comes to...

$29.20/gal

How does this compare to a gallon of fake butter topping?

So butterfat costs an average of 4X the cost of fake butter.

In other words, butterfat is liquid gold.

I agree with all of your calculations except that the butter is lighter then water. When the jug gets below 25% full it starts to float. I melt mine in a slow cooker. I'm not arguing about how expensive it is but our patrons LOVE it and it has really done well for us.

Now use use the Butterfat as the topping. What type of oil do you use and do you also add salt or a flavacal type of topping also!
