7-Eleven carries a surprisingly large number of groceries, and carefully stock their shelves to ensure they are able to supply the most common necessities available.
With a produce section including items such as milk, eggs and cheese, you may be wondering – does 7-Eleven also sell butter? And if so, what price could you expect to pay?
In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know!
Does 711 Sell Butter?
Yes. 711 sells butter at many of their retail stores throughout the United States. However, their selection is rather limited.
Therefore, it would be best to arrive at the store is quickly as possible to ensure butter has not been sold out by the time that you get there.
In addition to picking it up at the store yourself, 7-Eleven also offers delivery, and you can order butter (and other 7-Eleven items) through delivery services such as Instacart and Shipt.
What Brands Of Butter Does 7-Eleven Carry?
7-Eleven only carries salted Grassland butter and Meadow Gold Sweet Cream Butter Sticks, according to Instacart and 7-Eleven’s website. Each is offered in a 1 lb package.
They also carry the following butter items:
- I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (15 oz, $3.49)
- Darigold Natural Salted Butter ($16 oz, $4.99)
- Turner’s Butter Quarters (16 oz)
Additionally, 7-Eleven also offers Land O Lakes Margarine, which also comes in at 1 lb.
According to online sources, these are the only butter / margarine products offered. However, prices and availability can vary from store to store. According to 7-Now, the average price for a 1 lb stick of butter appears to be $5.49.
If you want to verify that your local 7-Eleven sells butter, it would be best to call that specific store ahead of time to inquire.
What Aisle Can Butter Be Found In At 7-Eleven?
Butter can be found in the dairy section of 7-Eleven, near the margarine, eggs, and sour cream.
Because each store may carry a limited supply of butter, it’s possible to miss it by mistake if you’re scanning aisles quickly.
Of course, if you need any help finding butter within the store, a 7-Eleven employee will be happy to help.
Do All 7-Eleven Stores Carry Butter?
Unfortunately, based on our research it doesn’t appear that all 7-Eleven stores carry butter – at least not all of the options mentioned above.
We determined this by visiting several stores, as well as using the Grassland product locator tool found on their website, which lists the stores that their products are carried in. Unfortunately, not all 7-Eleven stores showed up using the tool, indicating they may not be available at those stores.
Thankfully, it’s likely that even if one brand is missing, there are alternatives available that are being sold.
Therefore, you may wish to call ahead of time to ensure that your local 7-Eleven stocks butter, especially if you are after a specific type or brand.
What Is The Difference Between Butter And Margarine?
Butter is made from cream, while margarine is made from vegetable oils. Butter contains saturated fats, while margarine contains unsaturated fats.
Butter has a higher melting point than margarine, so many people consider it to be better for baking. However, margarine is lower in cholesterol and calories than butter.
Some people believe that butter is more natural than margarine, but both products are highly processed.
So, which should you choose? The answer depends heavily on your personal preferences, dietary needs, and your specific use case.
Healthier Alternatives To Butter
Butter is a dairy product made from the fat and protein components of milk. It’s a popular ingredient in many recipes, but it’s also high in saturated fat and cholesterol.
While butter can be a part of a healthy diet, there are some healthier alternatives that you can use in its place.
Margarine is a popular butter alternative. It’s made from vegetable oils and often fortified with vitamins and minerals. Some margarines also contain plant sterols, which can help reduce cholesterol levels.
Another option is to use spreads made from olive oil or canola oil. These spreads are lower in saturated fat than butter and margarine.
Unfortunately, the availability of butter can vary between each 7-Eleven store.
Because 7-Eleven doesn’t carry many different varieties within individual stores, it’s possible butter may sell out even if that store does usually carry it. Therefore, you may want to call ahead of time to verify that it’s available.
