    It is good stuff, although there is a huge range of quality so some brands will be better than others. You can definitely tell the difference between quality olive oil and run of the mill ordinary stuff.

    ...but when I see the EVOO acronym I think of that dumbass fat ho Rachel Ray. Gives me the shakes.

    I didn't know she used it since I don't watch her and it's too long to type out.

    1. Don't love Rachel Ray. but love Gianna. Gotta love a girl who knows and enjoys food, and is not Rachel Ray.

    2. Extra virgin olive oil can be amazing. Met some Spainards a while back, and it turns out they were olive oil producers. There's a whole culture behind the thing, maybe as intricate as coffee, chocolate, and all those types of specialty foods.

    3. Got some chocolate bonbons from Burdick's. I've really gotten into the single origin chocolates recently, thanks to Kiya and others, but if you like your bonbons delicate, Burdick's is as good as anyone in the country.

    Haterade shoutout to Mast Bros chocolate, Relwen, and COS. Examples of hipster beloved brands, the first a true indie, the second attempts by big companies to make something cool and exclusive, all resulting in a world of suck. I'd rather eat Reeses pieces and wear Banana Republic. At least there is some honesty there.

    I read an article in the New Yorker a couple years back that said that 90+% of "EVOO" is actually other types of oil flavored to taste like olive oil. Huge amounts of corruption with olive growers the Italian mafia etc etc.
