What’s With The Costco Oil, Olive?
The turn on: Foodies will tell you that the subtleties of olive oil in a dish can make a good meal exquisite. Kirkland Signature Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from fresh-picked, cold-pressed olives grown in Tuscany. The description on the bottle reads like a wine label with harvest year and an analysis of the colour, overtones and bouquet.
What’s the deal: Kirkland Signature Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which comes in an attractive one-litre bottle, is only $12.69 at Costco.
Why we’re excited: The olive oil aficionados at www.onlyoliveoils.com give Kirkland Signature Extra Virgin Olive oil a five-star rating, a much higher ranking than they give other boutique brands that easily go for triple the price per ounce.
How long will the pleasure last: As long as Kirkland and Tuscany keep Costco supplied.
Where’s the F Spot: All Costco locations in the Lower Mainland.
