Faux Olive Oil?

What has the world come to?
How sad to think that people are making counterfeit olive oil!

Always buy from a reputable distributor or production house. I try to buy from small production olive oil producing families/houses in California that I know of. Most of these families/houses also produce wine that I’m familiar with.

It’s such a sad life to have to worry about if your olive oil is actually from OLIVES!

Horror of horrors! I get my EVOO imported from Tuscany through this online distributor. I sure hope I’m not injesting expensive lamp oil. EWWWWWW!

Did you know that some pizza joints are replacing cheese on top of their pizza with a soya/milk ingredients derivative nowadays? Cheaper than real cheese… So fake olive oil doesn’t seem too far fetched either.
