WARNING: If you use olive oil a lot like myself then there is something you should know about olive oil. The United States is the only major country to produce and consume olive oil and is not a member of the IOOC (international olive oil council). As a result, the IOCC standards of olive oil don't apply to the oils bought in American stores. The US is thus a dumping ground for mislabeled, old, and defect olive oil for all the other nations of the world. The label "extra virgin" on olive oil in the US actually means nothing. Any grade of olive oil in the US can have the "extra virgin" label on it since IOOC does not police oil in the US. Therefore, be very careful and weary of paying extra for so called extra virgin olive oil at the grocery store the next time you go.

How interesting. Kind of like calling any sparkling wine "champagne"?

I agree with that. On the other hand, some olive oils do have reputable bottleing. Buyer beware is not a specious clue.
