Repeat after us… “¡Viva España!”
Why? It’s all about Trader Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain. Spain is a veritable treasure trove of olive groves – its rolling hills are home to some of the world’s most flavorful olives – and is actually the world’s largest producer of olive oil. This particular blend combines Arbequina, Hojiblanca and Piqual olives, harvested in Andalucia, Spain. They’re blended to produce an Extra Virgin Olive Oil that is light in color and a bit fruity, with a moderately pungent and refreshing “green,” herbaceous flavor.
Use this oil in dressings or marinades or for dipping your favorite crusty bread – really, anywhere you want the flavor of fresh-from-the-grove olive oil. We’re selling each one liter bottle of Trader Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain for $5.99, every day. We’ll say it again… ¡Viva España!
