Oil: looks like a Christmas tradition at Trader Joe’s. Since this is only the second Christmas season we’ve had a Trader Joe’s, I can’t say for sure. I’m hoping they keep doing it every December, because just like last year, this is a great deal.
You get three flavored extra-virgin olive oils for $9.99. Each bottle is 250 ml, which is not too much to use up before next year’s sale rolls around. 🙂
The flavors are:
- Hot Pepper EVOO: flavored with chiles. Trader Joe’s says good for bread dipping, eggs, and steak. I say good on chicken, pork, fish, and veggies too!
- Lemon EVOO: I love lemon flavored olive oil. I have been buying it for years. It’s great mixed into a vinaigrette, though I usually cut it 50/50 with unflavored olive oil. Also delicious on chicken, fish, seafood, or veggies. Or as a dip for bread, drizzled on hummus.
- Rosemary EVOO: Add anywhere you want a boost of rosemary. Obviously, roast chicken and pork immediately come to mind. Trader Joe’s says drizzle on pasta, then add black pepper, salt, and some grated cheese. That sounds good to me!

Last year’s nut oil collection is available now too, but the price isn’t quite as good at $14.99.
