In English, we don't say the butter is fatty - we say the butter is fat.

No, I disagree. We do say fatty in English. "The butter is fatty" is more akin to "the butter is high in fat" or "the butter has a lot of fat in it" where as if you said "the butter is fat" you're more likely saying something like "that is a fat stick of butter." Not the same. Fatty is fine.

True, but in the options if you put your mouse on gras, it says fat or fatty would work. But fat does not work for some reason.

I included "the" for both items, and it said it was wrong. "Sugar is sweet, butter is fat"...which is actually how I would say it, haha...
