    I had no idea that Italy bought olives all over the world & passed it off as their own.

      Crazy right! I used to see that on bottles and wonder what it meant. Now I know! Thanks for listening Erika!

    I found it interesting how many olive oils are not pure, fresh olive oils. I’m happy to know that Kasandrinos only uses the current olive harvest.

      I agree, it is a very interesting point Jen! You would think that olive oil would be exactly what it says. Glad we have a producer we can trust.

    First of all, I love your podcast and enjoy listening to it on my commute from downtown Atlanta to the ‘burbs. I had no idea olive oil would go bad over time; I will think twice about buying the huge bottles now and am going to Trader Joe’s at lunch – interested to see if any of their’s have harvest dates! Dying to try out Kasandrinos after listening yesterday, think I’ll place an order soon!

      Glad the podcast makes your commute a little better Jami! Let us know if you found out anything about the ones from TJ’s. I know I have bought some from their before. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with Kasandrinos!

    I never knew how “sketchy” the olive oil business can be. I really enjoyed the tips he provided on how to pick the best EVOO (taking all my olive olives from the back of the row from now on!). I’m REALLY looking forward to trying out Kasandrinos!

    I LOVE your girls’ podcast, very refreshing! Keep it up 🙂

      Thank you for listening Anderson! Who would of thought the olive oil business was so sneaky. Hope you try out Kasandrinos!

    I went straight into the cabinet to see what the harvest date on my olive oil. 2014, not too bad – whoot whoot (ok just took it back to 1993).

    You ladies are fabulous!

    • Kelly says

      Kelly —  04/23/2015 At 18:47

      Haha Pam! Thanks for the love. And I still say whoot whoot 🙂

    I was surprised that he discarded the study about the fake oils but now I know what to look for when buying olive oils!

    • Kelly says

      Kelly —  04/23/2015 At 18:48

      So many great tips that Tony provided that I had no idea about before. Thank you for listening Hollie!

    I wonder if I am one of those people who Tony said has never had real olive oil! Thanks for the education…..

    • Kelly says

      Kelly —  04/23/2015 At 18:49

      Thanks for listening Kiki! Now you know what you can look for at the store to try the good stuff 🙂

    I found it very interesting how Tony talked about that you always want to know your source/who the producer is (olive oil, etc.) as well as to know the harvest date (when the olives were harvested) as freshness is very important with an olive oil. Anything under 24 months old from harvest date is still fresh. It is also important that olive oil only comes from one PGI (specific region). Also, if the oil comes in a clear glass bottle do not purchase as the oil gets bad quickly. Always choose the bottle in the back of the shelf that has been out of the light. This was very interesting Podcast where I learned a lot.

    I really enjoyed learning how to pick high quality oils! It makes so much sense but I had *no* idea about looking for a harvest date. Definitely going to be replacing my oil now!

    • Kelly says

      Kelly —  04/23/2015 At 18:51

      I had no idea either Rachel! Thank you for listening!

    Thanks for interviewing such an interesting guy! So good to hear about businesses with honesty and integrity. I really can’t wait to try “real” olive oil!

      Thank you for listening Chloe! Supporting people you can trust is the way to go. Hope you can get your hands on some good olive oil soon!
