What is a "cube" of margarine, can you give me a measurement?

Hi Pat Castro, In the US, unlike most of the rest of the world, they serve margarine shaped into sticks/cubes in a package. So one pound of margarine, would cut into four separate sticks. They are usually separated by wax paper or wrapped in wax paper. So one stick is 1/4th of a pound in weight. 1/2 cup equals one stick. But weight is good enough, for only in the US, do they use these cup sizes. Cups in other countries actually have different measurements.
