History:

Icelandic cod has been a popular choice of nutrition for the Vikings dating back to 800 AD.  It is wild caught in the deep, dark cold waters of the North Atlantic ocean surrounding Iceland.

Butter beans are popular in the southern United States and the United Kingdom.  The creme colored beans are named after butter because their consistency and color are similar.  The rest of the world refers to them as lima beans.

Taste/Texture:

Icelandic cod is white, firm yet flaky and sweeter than other varieties of cod.

Butter beans are flat with a chewy texture and have a very mild flavor.
