As we’ve cut down on its trans fat-laden alternatives, Americans have returned to the warm, melty embrace of butter in a big way. Butter consumption is at a 40-year high and we consume 5.6 pounds of butter per capita (that’s roughly the amount my five year-old can fit onto one slice of toast). That’s nowhere near our per capita consumption back in the 1930s when it was up around 18 pounds.
