Hello everyone, today's review will be on a global and widely accepted brand that has been key in developing our kids and nourishing our families; the Blue Band Margarine. In this review, we will see the benefits of choosing this brand, prices, availability and also reasons why Blue Band has grown so popular amongst Nigerians and Africans at large.



PRODUCT REVIEW

Growing up as a kid, it was a culture and tradition for us to take bread with margarine, bread with omelet, or bread with tea for breakfast. One of our favorites was the bread with margarine combination, that was when my love for blue band margarine started. It was in that time that the viral advert "B without BB is like a train without an engine" was on, so it made we kids (back then) fall in love even more with Blue Band Margarine. Well, the love this brand has been growing too and I don't think its going to end anytime soon.

Blue Band Margarine is a high quality spread known and trusted by everyone in this part of the world, it is ideal for spreading on bread, cooking and baking. Blue Band Margarine has been a daily source of essential nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, Niacin, Folic acid etc for families all over the world.


Blue Band Margarine is made from high quality vegetable oils and it contains the essential fats and vital vitamins that is necessary for development of unborn babies, for growth, vision and immune response. It helps utilize calcium for strong bones and teeth.

As a global brand, blue band margarine recognizes international nutritional guidelines from the World Health Organization (W.H.O.). It contains good fats such as omega-3, omega-6, and polyunsaturates, unlike the regular butter out there in the market that is high in fat.

Another great reason why blue band margarine is popular amongst Africans in general is because it takes into consideration the different kinds of taste and diets of the people. Blue band margarine is available at different fat levels to suit everyone, there is a 70% fat spread blue band margarine and also a low fat spread blue band margarine.

Finally, the benefit I consider the most fabulous is because it is pocket friendly. Blue band margarine is available in different sizes to suit the varying income levels of the people. There is a 450g, 250g and even single sachets for low income consumers.

RATINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Eating a nutritious breakfast in the morning has been proven to enhance children's ability to concentrate at school.
