Title: Classico Olive Oil
Post by: Randy on January 17, 2005, 04:38:22 PM
The last bottle of Classico Olive oil I bought was close to $9 for the 1 litre bottle(34 oz).  Has the price gone up that much everywhere else?

Hi Randy,

I don't know about that brand, but I buy the bottle that comes with the green label on it at Costco and it's pretty expensive .... this one you have is it *extra* virgin olive oil ? , that is a lot more expensive than the regular olive oil ( second pressing )

Mark

sorry it doesn't answer your question.

Randy,

I live outside of Dallas, and the Classico 34 oz. goes for $8.55 at Albertson's, $8.99 at Sack 'n Save, and $9.99 at Tom Thumb (which I believe is/was a part of Safeway). However, Tom Thumb, which usually has the highest prices of all the local supermarkets, had the 17 oz. Classico on sale at $3.99, or $7.99 for two bottles.

Peter it could very well be I had been getting the smaller bottles and this time picked up the larger one.  The price you showed was on the money for the one litre I bought.
Thanks for the information.

I have a hard time finding it Wal-Mart.  They sell out of it quite a bit.

I buy EVOO by the gallon at a Greek, Italian, Lebanese, or Brazilian market, and the price is from $21 to $28/gallon, which is slightly less than 4 liters.  I like the Portuguese EVOO from the Brazilian market best, but I use cheap Italian or Lebanese EVOO for general purposes, which I sometimes buy by the liter for $7 at the Lebanese market.  The Lebanese always seem to have the best prices.
