    Last time I put a bottle of Cento EVOO in the fridge, it solidified like coconut oil. Well, not entirely, but at least half. Is it supposed to do that? (saturated fat test, I assume?)
    Yeah, it's the saturated fat. I also heard Walmart brand evoo is actually quite good, according to this:

    It even beat Costco somehow? o.O

      These look to be somewhat close though: The Cornucopia Institute
      How old is this?!

      It says that the location is Seattle and the market area is "Nationwide"? From what I know, the eggs are local too. If you are buying organic eggs from Costco in Michigan then they come from farms in Michigan...

        Actually, they really aren't rated at all, so it is hard to tell how good or bad they might be, though the packaging states they are from cage free chickens and meet all of the standards for organic designation.

          The eggs are certainly organic and are cage free. I have no idea what the quality is or what the chickens are fed. I am guessing it depends on the farm that its coming from. Not all of Costco's organic eggs are the same because each Costco gets them from different farms.

          I live in Michigan and thus the Costco here in Grand Rapids gets their eggs from a Michigan farm that is decently close. If you live in California then your organic Costco eggs may be entirely different and are probably more "pastured" due to the weather.

          I'm doubting that rating system. Costco's egg production has changed recently. I am not saying Costco's eggs are the best but I'll keep eating them if I am unable to get eggs from the farmers market.

            We buy some of our vitamins there--my husband researched them and found the Costco brand was just as good as some of the more expensive. We get organic coffee, organic/grass fed beef, olives, nitrite/nitrate-free bacon, sometimes organic sharp cheddar with we just HAVE to have cheese (which I do, alas), and whatever else sounds good and isn't full of junk!

                  I'm also in doubt about that rating system. They had a big article in the Costco Connection several months ago specifically about the chicken/egg farms in California (which is where I live) that provide them with organic eggs, and it sure looked good to me.

                    I believe the rating was in relation to the "Kirkland" brand eggs that Costco sells nationally...

                        Don't get too excited; my Costco STOPPED carrying it recently because it wasn't selling well. (Guess people are loading up with the large economy size of I-Can't-Believe-it's-Not-Butter.)

                          the evoo, sadly, did not firm up in the fridge as it should have. I suspect it is a blend.
