Yesterday it emerged that some people in the North-east butter the top of their buttery.
To be honest – for many in our office, this was a little shocking. But were we wrong, is buttering the uneven side a common thing?
An incredible 93% of the votes in our poll agreed that you should always butter your buttery (or rowie) on the flat side.
That still means 5% backed buttering the top, uneven side.
We also tried to find out what people call the popular baked savoury treat, asking people is it a buttery, a rowie or a roll.
Exactly 50% of votes said it should be called a buttery, 36% said it was a rowie, with the remaining 14% in our poll said roll.
What do you think? We’re going to leave the poll open a little bit longer.
*407 votes were cast for “Which side do you buttery a buttery?” 406 votes were cast for “What do call a buttery?”
