CLINTON, N.Y. – Do seasonings make butter better? One new business in Clinton thinks so, and is offering a variety of compound butters to boost the flavor in everyday food.

The Compound, located on West Park Row in Clinton, held a soft opening on Wednesday, Oct. 21, offering 18 butter flavors, along with tea and other specialty items.

Some of the butter flavors include:

  • Candied Bacon
  • Jalapeno Cheddar
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • Honey
  • Buffalo & Bleu
  • Sea Salt & Caramel
  • Taco
  • Pizza

While we’re at it- Cinnamon Toast Crunch is BACK. Anyone ever have a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch as a kid (or adult,...

Co-owner Sharrone Sofer says after the grand opening on Nov. 1, the shop will also offer a selection of grilled cheese sandwiches made with the butters.

“I’ve been making grilled cheese sandwiches for a long time, where I would just put an ingredient in the pan with the butter when I was cooking the grilled cheese, and the thought was like, maybe there's a better way to do this? I always liked the way it tastes, maybe some siracha, and it caramelizes real nice. It would be easier if it all was just one thing instead of being a bunch of different things,” he said.

The store will be open again on Thursday, Oct. 22, but the full kitchen will not open until Nov. 1.
