Garlic and olive oil go together like peanut butter and jelly, Antony & Cleopatra or Yogi & Boo Boo. It occurred to us that making use of this natural pair would be considerably simpler if we put them together, eliminating the need to blend them at home. And thus Trader Joe's Garlic Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil was born.
We traveled to Spain, home to some of the world’s finest olives, as well as a copious garlic crop, to find the perfect blend of bright olive oil and piquant garlic. We participated in the blending of the oil, and then approved the final blend, with its attention-grabbing infusion of fresh garlic. Use it in marinades, for dipping crusty bread, in salad dressings or as a light sauce for pasta (a little red chili pepper will further enliven this particular pasta presentation). We’re selling each 250 ml bottle (8.45 ounces) of Garlic Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil for $3.99, every day.
