Butter Leaf   (+15, -1)  [vote for, against]
less than paper thin

Butter Leaf - like gold leaf but edible. Can be kept in the freezer so it lasts for ages, simply peel off a leaf and apply to toast for an instant even coating.

I believe they already make edible gold leaf. It's true. I saw it on Discovery Channel.

btw, some gold leaf is edible. (not that I'd want to...)

The point is that it's butter, not that it's something thin that you can eat. the reference to gold leaf is just so you can compare it to something.

This would be more like a slice of cheese. Perhaps wax coated. Or even cheese coated. A cheese/butter/cheese laminate.

Too thin. I would want it about 1mm (.040 inch) thick. This could easily be molded onto sheets of the parchment paper that is used to wrap butter. Peel off, apply, remove backing when butter is melted. [+] !

If you could find some (edible) coating that could keep the butter from sticking to itself, you could sell the stuff in rolls.

I'm certain I have seen it somewhere, I swear! I just can't find it! Spray-on butter! 'Nuff said!

<aside - have I exceeded my ! limit yet? >

And I mean real butter, not the fake stuff. All the taste and goodness, with all the badness still there so I can enjoy it while feeling guilty.

In a refillable dispenser so there's a minimum of wasted packaging.

Mmmm, butter. <wipes drool from chin>

Was it Groucho Marx that once said "I can't tolerate people who are lactose intolerant"?
