Taste Test: The Best Butter

We sampled more than 60 sticks and tubs of butter (straight off a spoon, people!), and we're giving these 10 (five winners and five runner-ups) some serious pats on the back.

Wild Harvest Organic Unsalted Butter
Best Unsalted Stick

Wild Harvest Organic Unsalted Butter: Organic and economical -- a rare combination -- this stick is slightly tangy, and ultra-creamy. "With a pure flavor and no salt, it's the best choice for baking: Think holiday cookies!" said one taster. ($5.26 for 1 lb.)

Runner-Up: Trader Joe's Organic Unsalted Butter ($4.79 for 1 lb., or $.30 per oz.)
