Butter is packaged in sticks, blocks, tubs, and pats. We know what the first three are, but how much is a pat of butter?
A block of butter weighs about one pound, and a stick is a fourth of a pound. Tubs vary in weight and size. One pat of butter can also vary in size and packaging.
Butter packaging material can be a foil, waxed paper inside a cardboard box, or plastic and cardboard tubs for multiple servings.
