The Pick ‘n Pay’s Choice Salted Butter Spread that I bought developed a mould.
It was a very minor growth, but it was there. I scraped it out and continued using the butter.
Now the butter has a subtle blue cheese flavour to it. Fascinating.
I think there is a market for this stuff.

Subtle and blue cheese, not two words I would use in close proximity with each other.

Yes, well, that says it all really.
But it is subtle. The butter tastes like butter, but one notices something a little odd about it. A not quite butter flavour.
