    costco olive oil help?

    I stumbled upon this brand of olive oil at Costco -- has anyone used it before? It's called "Cullen Creek" olive oil.

    No, but Kirkland Olive Oil was actually one of the ones that when tested was real olive oil. Some others are adulterated with lesser oils like peanut and canola.

    Can we assume if an olive oil contains these other oils that they will be listed in the ingredients? I've heard this claim before about lesser oils being used in cheaper olive oil brands so I checked our bottles at home and they appear to be pure olive oil. Thing is we bought them at Wally Mart which isn't exactly known for fine cuisine! We do buy the more expensive named brands though so I'm hoping they are pure O.O.

    No, I'll try to find the link. And purchasing from Italy isn't a guarantee either, which freaked me out. Apparently their standards for the (mostly) olive oil they export are as lax as our standards for what we allow to be labelled as olive oil. I'm off to google to see if I can find the link. I do remember Kirkland and the California Olive Company as being two safe ones.

    California Olive Ranch is great. If the olive oil says it was made in California or Oregon, it's probably real and it's easy to look up the farms it comes from. There's a lot of good olive country out here. The olive oil from Redridge Farms looks pretty tasty <3

    At any rate, you'll probably have better luck looking at domestic brands versus imported.

    I bought a bottle of California Olive Ranch oil a few weeks ago. The stuff is damn good. It has a sort of apply after taste that is amazing.

    We have three varieties of Kirkland olive oil, wondering which one is the one everyone recommends:

    Kirkland extra Virgin olive oil - Arbequina, made in Spain

    Kirkland signature extra virgin olive oil in dark colored 2L bottle

    Kirkland signature organic extra virgin olive oil, Filippo berio branded, 1.5L clear bottle


    Any thoughts?
