The next couple of weeks you'll have a chance to win 2 pounds of the ever popular Hope butter courtesy of the Steele County American Dairy Association and Cashwise Foods. Winners simply take their certificate to Cashwise Foods in Owatonna before January 31, 2018, to claim their prize.

The Hope Creamery and Cashwise encourage you to use real dairy products this holiday season. I ran across an interesting item on the body ecology website. It states that heart disease from 1900 to 1960 evolved into the number one killer. Yet during that same timeframe shows that the average consumption of butter per person dropped from 18 pounds a year to 4 pounds.So maybe you should eat more butter?

Got any favorite things you like butter on? I guess I'm a Plain Jane as I prefer it on toast with corn on the cob and boiled new potatoes close behind.

I ran across another website that lauds the taste of butter mixed with raspberries or strawberries.

Go ahead and enter and good luck. We'll give you chances to call in and win as well on AM 1390 and Kat Kountry 105.

Sorry, this contest is now over.
