I want to introduce you to a new Country Crock Spread; Simply Delicious.

Real taste from real Ingredients.

New Simply Delicious™ spread, is made with real and simple ingredients. Your taste buds will be delighted by the blend of canola oil, creamy yogurt, a pinch of salt and no artificial preservatives – all with the rich and flavorful taste of Country Crock spread you know and love.

Tasting is Believing!

This spread is the perfect topper for baked goods or veggies! We know you put a lot of love into the dishes you create by using quality ingredients that are both great-tasting and simple for your family, and this new product is another household favorite!

Slow down if you’re expecting butter, because that’s not what you’re getting with Simply Delicious.  I think because of the yogurt it’s a little tangier than most spreads, but it’s really great on toasted bagels in the morning, on warm apple muffins and it’s superb on baked potatoes.  It still spreads on nice and smooth, and actually I think it’s less “slippery” than even the original Country Crock (you know what I mean, when you go into the container with a knife and it slips off the knife before you reach your toast ).

I wanted to try out something a little different with it though, and see how its flavors would mesh with something a bit sweeter, and so I altered a recipe from eMeals new Dessert Plan.  (eMeals new Dessert Plan is available now for only $3 a month! Get inspired each week to make incredible desserts.)

Using the Simply Delicious spread to toast the nuts and ramen worked really well.  The slight tang and saltiness pairs really well with the chocolate.  I believe it gives the cookies a little bit of a different taste than if you would use butter or a butter flavored spread, but that sweet/salty duo is quite yummy.

  1. This is such an interesting recipe. I would have never dreamed to use ramen in this way!

  2. My daughter just loves chocolate and salty stuff together. I bet she would love these! Yum!

  3. I haven't tried the new simply delicious spread. I'll have to keep an eye out for it the next time I shop. Great recipe!

  4. @Kathleen – I don't think it has the same taste as a 'butter' flavored spread. It doesn't taste like yogurt though, it's just 'tangier' than say a regular margarine product. The only way for sure to tell if you'd like it is to try it though 🙂 Grab the coupon, and if you get it on sale you can probably get it for just over a $1.00 with the coupon (it was on sale for $1.99 at our Tom Thumb store last week). If you don't care for it, you can use it in baking and it shouldn't make too much of a difference in the final product.

  5. Love your recipe! Have not tried it yet, think I will try to use it the next time I make a batch of caramel popcorn, see what it tastes like. Thank you for the coupon
