Just wondering if it will thaw and taste the same. I know you can freeze blocks of cheese with no worry.
I think my mom freezes it with no problem.

I don't know about butter spread, but I freeze butter with no problems whatsoever.
I think it depends on what kind of spread you want to freeze. I once tried to freeze Smart Balance and it was a disaster. It just turned to mushy water when I defrosted it. If there's an 800 number on the package, you're probably better off calling and asking.
Yes I have frozen the spread with no problem at all.
eta: I use Country Crock Brand of spread.

I myself freeze milk. If I go to the store for "one" thing, I come to the checkout with a cart full. I love to freeze everything, and have learned to check online to see about freezing.....noodles, cream, i.e. I also like to make big batches, if I'm going to the b other of making something,,,,,,,,,,and it's soooo nice to eat some later.

Martha Stewart says you can freeze butter.

I have never frozen a tub of margarine but I have frozen butter and it was fine. I think you could try it anyway, I don't see there would be much difference between butter and margarine. Look on the back of the margarine tub and see if there is a 1-800 number for the company and call them and ask, they should be able to give you a definitive answer. hth.

May I also suggest to thaw the butter out in the refridge,,,always!
thanks for all the suggestions. The spread is a light spread- probably has a lot of water whipped into it- so it may not fare as well as a high fat spead.
You can freeze almost everything --- except pumpkin. Pumpkin has too much water content in it.
Seriously, butter quarters freeze well so I would think a tub of butter would too.

Try freezing just a spoonful and see how it does.
People freeze milk and cheese too.
Yes, the tubs can be frozen and are just the same when you thaw them in the refrigerator.
Freeze only the ones that are high in fat.
I use Gold'n Soft and I always keep one in the freezer. Thaw in the fridge as thats where I store it. Taste and teture stays the same.
yes , I do it all the time with my Olivio spread . i also freeze cheese in blocks or the shredded cheese that comes in the bag . It tastes the same . However cream cheese is different . it freezes well and tastes the same , and tastes the same but the cream cheese has a different texture. It is more of a whipped cream cheese consistency.it tastes exactly the same though. i have frozen milk in plastic jugs and its fine . thaw in fridge . i have frozen butter and it tastes fine and you can thaw in the fridge . You will save money especially on shredded cheese because ie
t will not get moldy.

namaste000 -- thanks for the website - stilltasty.com. -- it contains lots of useful information. By the way, I also freeze sticks of butter but have never tried freezing spreads and happy I found out about freezing cheese.
