TABURE Thabo Mogopa Jnr, better known as JR, is arguably one of the country's finest MCs. His clever lyrics and addictive beats have girls melting from his beloved hometown of Pretoria to the captivating Cape.
His defences, however, do not melt when he is informed that he has to taste margarine. Instead, the prospect of tasting the world's best-selling table spread brings out the sadistic comedian in him and he decides to tell this writer that he is lactose intolerant. Only once all the blood had drained from my face does he smile and calmly let me know he is joking.
The first two margarines JR tries leave him worrying about his waistline. Ironically, it's the Ole and the PnP Extra Lite Low Fat Spread that he says are too oily.
The third and fourth margarines fare better. Flora Regular is found to have a neutral taste, that is good because it won't interfere with the taste of whatever it's being used with.
He is also impressed by Clover's Butro Butter Spread. The margarine that takes the cake, though, is the classic Rama Original Margarine. "I grew up using Rama. I've been eating it since it had the foil wrapping. This stuff is the best in the world."
