    I was happy with Trader Joe's, not as strong as some but so cheap that it didn't matter. But I haven't seen it there lately.

    The only other one I've been really happy with is Urbani. It's quite intense, unless you use it all the time I'd get the 1.8oz bottle.

      I recently picked this up on a trip to London:

        Am blown away by this one: La Madia Regale, which I bought recently in Vancouver, CA. www.lamadiaregale.it.

          I have been happy with the white truffle oil from Whole Foods although I am about to try the TO from King of Mushrooms in Daily City, CA. The brand is Terra diFiori. I will update. Happy shrooming.

            Oh I love the stuff! The best I've ever had I found at a farmer's market in Florida but you can order it online at http://www.spenger.com/
            It used to be about 26-bucks a bottle but it's a big one, and I had to stop buying it. It was so good that I would get a loaf of bread and just pour!

              I have some 'Savini Tartufi' brand, and I was really happy with it when I first opened it - rich, loamy, in a medium density EVOO. However, after about 2 months in my pantry I've used about half the bottle, and now there's very little "truffliness" left in the oil, I notice. I guess it doesn't last very long. When I first opened it, the aromoa was spectacular - now, it barely tastes like anything other than EVOO.

                I much prefer truffle salt -- it tastes more like fresh truffle, and the flavor doesn't diminish with time.

                  Tried and true - no heavy olive taste...grapeseed infused. INcredible aroma ..best I've found..and I've really searched.


                  I just had St. Lawrence market start ordering it in...the bulk place in the 1st floor (back)..about 19.00 a can (500 ml).
