Rated 2 out of 5 by MKSB Rancid
I ordered this in April and it is now August. The oil has been sitting on my kitchen counter since nothing on the bottle says it needs to be refrigerated. When I made salad dressing with the oil yesterday, I could tell immediately that it was rancid. I ended up throwing it away though I had hardly used any of it. I can't stand rancid oil. I've used other brands of olive oil and have never had that happen before. Also, the bottle was not sealed very well when I got it.

If the Olive Oil does not have a strong grassy taste with a pepper finish at the end, it is most likely oil that is older than 1 year. The most important thing you can know when choosing EVOO is the crush date. Which goes by month and year. OO is good for 12-18 months max depending on the olive. In a true Med., diet the olive oil is not more than 1 year old. After 1 year its good for cooking but has lost much of the polyphenols and taste.

I love me some olive oil, but after reading the reports on all the fake stuff, I'm not sure what I've been eating. This oil doesn't have a strong taste to it which works for some, but I tend to like a bold flavor. It almost tastes similar to a light olive oil. I'm assuming the quality is good though since Swanson stands behind it. The bottle is terrible as it leaks pretty badly if you try to pour it out. All in all I like the oil, but I've had better with a stronger flavor and scent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lrlady A great price for real olive oil
After reading a report on how olive oil in the grocery store is not even close to the real unadulterated thing, I saw this Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Cold Pressed (which is what the article said to insist upon) for about the same price I pay in a grocery store for who knows what. I ordered it, and I have been very pleased with the quality and flavor. I trust Swanson to deliver a quality product and will reorder as needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by laurab47 Not for me
Thought this EVOO was in a glass bottle. Returned. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer as much of my food items in glass containers as possible. The quality could be great, but don't want to chance any BPA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Unsatisfied001 Pleasantly surprised.
Light, delicious olive oil in a cheap, messy plastic container that dribbles a bit when you poor the oil. The oil itself is great, though - the best I've tried, and I will continue to buy it.

I use this product for my omega 3 replacement supplement. Like the Greeks in my family we drink a shot glass full daily. No fishy taste either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HonestThankful Excellence & Value
This olive oil costs significantly less than similar products in the retail environment. The taste is light and lovely compared to other olive oils I have tried; really delicious. An earlier reviewer (rightly) complained about the way the bottle spout wastes oil. I took heed to their concern and just carefully pour the oil into a spoon I rest at the bottle's edge. That way, I don't spill a drop. Finding this on-line resource has been a real benefit to me in terms of cost savings, convenience and product quality.

This one was cold pressed and I was happy to purchase it at a reasonable cost. Thank you Swanson for providing high quality products that I can afford.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Salubrious Oil OK
Oil was fine, but container ruins product as it is impossible to not spill almost a teaspoon every time. I was lucky to have an old empty Virgin Olive Oil container to put the Oil in so as to not waste it.
If the container was OK then a 5 star for this product.

The Swanson organic extra virgin olive oil has a smooth taste when drizzled over salad greens. It adds flavor without becoming overbearing.

The oil is fine, but will not reorder because I prefer olive oil to be in glass bottles, preferably dark glass. Thank you for all the excellent products you have.

what can I say. I am a lover of olive oil and this one is a very good one. It’s a bit (moreso) stronger in flavor that I’m used to with extra virgin oil but it had beautiful flavor and I love cooking with it.

Good quality olive oil. I wish it had a different bottle design as it doesn't pour well and tends to make a mess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Texasgirl Did not like this oil
I do like Swanson products a lot! This oil I did not. Messy bottle; in plastic; also olives were from south africa.... Hopefully swanson will find a better olive oil.

Rated 4 out of 5 by missorganic Nice and light oil. We find we have to use a bit more than normal on a salad. Good price for a half liter. The plastic bottle is actually quite convenient for travelling, even though glass is usually way better. The pour hole is a bit messy.
