Ugh, I use that stuff like its going out of style and have never even
thought of it that way.

Okay, so now if I decide to change to something else to spread on my
bagel, what does the list recommend as the best alternative.  Real
butter?  OR one of the reduced fat margarines?  I know how bad trans

Thanks alot.
