Who Buys Light Olive Oil?

formerlyfingers | Feb 21, 2007 07:38 PM

It is an insult to the senses, not to mention proud producers of extra virgin, and it tastes like nothing!!! No color, no aroma, no fruitiness, no viscosity.....these are the very qualities that make olive oil special. Aren't they?

I catered a dinner recently in someone's home, and asked for olive oil, and was handed a bottle of "light" olive oil. The hapless woman didn't have a clue that she had wasted her money on clever marketing in a health crazy age! The stuff inside might as well have been canola or sunflower oil.

Does anyone use this stuff for any good purpose? It was sad, very sad.
