Trader Joe Vs Fairway Olive oil
Which is better. I honestly can't tell. Both are packed in Italy but source their olive oil from outside Italy. Trader Joe's charges $6.49 and Fairway charges $9.99. Is the Fairway product worth the premium? Also can't figure out why anyone should care where the oil is packed into the bottle.
I shop at the Upper Eastside one and they always have bowls of olive oil along with a basket of bread to sample them. In fact, I was just hogging up the Piccantolio the other day (That one was really good btw). Doesn't help with the elevator being right next to it so I have a tendency to sample all of the oil while I wait.
Its no surprise that they have better olive oil though as they are also the biggest sponsors in the New York International Olive Oil competition and also sell the winners.
