I don't often shop at ShopRite because Pathmark is much closer to our home, but Pathmark fails to impress me on many levels and yesterday I spotted some great deals at ShopRite. The top deal was a 1 liter bottle of De Cecco Extra Virgin Olive Oil for $9.99, down from $13.99 or thereabouts. Olive oil is a big expense but something I cannot do without so I'm always on the lookout for bargains that will allow me to get some quality and still somehow stay within budget.
De Cecco is an excellent brand and I've never purchased their olive oil before.
Even the alleged regular price of $13.99 is a steal for 1 liter of extra virgin, even more so because De Cecco promises to use only Italian olives.
It's a not-so-well-kept secret that Italy does not have enough olives to keep up with the demand and companies must import some from Spain and Greece, but De Cecco claims to stick with the native olives. So that find definitely made my day.
(Notice all my unintentionally clever keyword placement?)
