Everything is better with butter—especially when it’s turkey-shaped butter!
This salted butter is molded into a mini turkey sculpture, perfectly formed with individual feathers, a beak and even a gobbler. After the “oohs” and “aahs,” friends and family can get their knives ready and slather the butter on warm-and-toasty dinner rolls or mashed potatoes.

Where to Find the Turkey-Shaped Butter
The buttery birds are 4 ounces each, and retail for $3.99. The edible work of art is courtesy of Keller’s Creamery and can be found at plenty of major grocery stores, including Publix, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Acme and Jewel.
No surprise, this turkey-shaped butter is a seasonal treat. Snatch ’em up while you can because they aren’t going to linger after Thanksgiving.
To serve, you’ll want to set the butter sculpture on a decorative dish. Don’t forget to take it out of the fridge before guests arrive. For optimal enjoyment and spreadability, butter needs to come to room temperature before spreading on fresh-baked bread. It’s safe to leave butter out on the counter—here’s the proof.
Bonus: More Butter Shapes to Know
Sure, butter sculpted into fun shapes might seem like a modern novelty—or an activity reserved for county fair competitions—but butter animals have a storied past. In fact, Easter butter lambs are a Polish tradition that’s also found in the US.
Keller’s Creamery is also going to release butter shaped like a Christmas tree in time for all of your holiday meals. You’ll want to mark your calendar because the Christmas tree butter sculpture will hit grocery stores in December!
