    Becel? Does it exist on the island?

    Here's one of those random product-availability questions.
    Is Becel available on the island? I know I've seen Land 'o Lakes, but my memory isn't good enough anymore to recall Becel.
    Anyone know?

    Sorry, I thought it was one of those brand name things that many know.
    It's a butter replacement... oh jeez that sounds rather unappetizing.
    For lack of a better word, margarine.
    Michael Mattalo and his crew should know it, being Canadians....

    i do not know if they have that brand of margarine.
    that being said, they have plenty of other brands of margarine.

    we use a soft serve butter with olive oil and did not find that at any of the aruba grocery.

    is the container green?
    dear husband says Lings has it.
    I do not believe him.
    we had the BECEL conversation this evening during dinner.
    All DH knows about Lings is the bakery and the Macarthur milk.

Michael . . . as Andrea suggests, there are other brands of margarine on the island . . . I would not suggest packing a tub of that stuff . . . hate to see your and "the lady's" speedos covered in edible oil products :-) LOL
