House brand Olive oil

What are some good house brand for olive oils?

I've heard good stuff about Whole Foods 365 EVOO but I'm kind of confused which particular one people are referring to- there's a Whole Foods 365 EVOO made from Italian olives, a Whole Foods 365 EVOO made from Spanish olives, etc..

    I've had them all and they're good everyday oils -- the single-origin ones have the characteristics typical of the olives of the region, which I can't remember off the top of my head. Their plain EVOO is in my cupboard right now, and has a good rich olive taste and suffices just fine for cooking. Not something I'd necessarily use in a more olive-oil-focused application but it suits all my olive oil needs! :)

      Looks like you might be in LA - if you are, try http://www.guidimarcello.com/ - they have a fairly cheap standard olive oil (not technically a house brand) that is good for the price. If you ask them, they'll know which one you're talking about.
