This is a good olive oil.  However the recently reviewed ALDI Carlini Extra Virgin Olive Oil is just as good or better for less money.

Trader Joe’s California Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil is not as buttery as either the Carlini Extra Virgin Olive Oil from ALDI or my favorite olive oil, Trader Joe’s Spanish Extra Virgin (also less pricey per ml). There’s not much of an olive taste to this oil as compared with the other two oils.  The color and viscosity are about the same as the TJ Spanish oil.

The thing that distinguishes this oil from the other two is some bitterness on the tongue after a few seconds.  Neither of the other two oils has that characteristic.

Price $5.99 (500 ml)    Calories 120 per Tbsp (15 ml)
