  1. Pretty standard stuff you can get at just about any loblaws. I've even seen it at No Frills. Every now and then, see it on sale for $4-$5 a 750ml bottle. In terms of quality, I don't see any difference between it and Bertolli or Mastro or Gallo, which also go on sale fairly frequently.

      I bought it before on sale at No Frills; grandgourmand is right, I don't see much difference between Carapelli and the others of a similar price point, other than that the Carapelli is a bit fruitier than the Mastro and Gallo.

        It's OK. Widely available discounted at various NG outlets. Among the better values I've found is the Italian EVOO at Costco--2 liter bottle for about $14. Watch the labels on the cheapies like Carapelli--its often bottled in Italy but not Italian product.

          Same thing for all of them...but really does it matter? For everyday cooking, I wouldn't notice the difference between Italian, Spanish or Greek olive oils.

            Folks, we've split the interesting discussion about fraudulent EVOO to the General Chowhounding Topics board. You can find the thread at the link below.
