Olive oil: hot new flavor trend
Part of my Sunday morning ritual is to go through the coupons in the paper to try to cut out enough of them for things that I would buy anyway so that I actually make up the cost of Sun for a week. (I do get an employee discount.)
Of course, I then forget to use them when I go to the store.
Anyway, today I came upon one for Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil. Call me old-fashioned, but I don't think mayonnaise should be made with olive oil. And I'm someone who loves olive oil. I just don't think a store-bought mayonnaise should be tarted up. ...
As I kept flipping through the coupons I came upon one that bothered me even more, Land O' Lakes Butter with Olive Oil. Ugh. Like that makes it healthier. It sure isn't going to make it taste better.
So now I need one more example of an improper addition of olive oil to something just so the manufacturer can claim a health benefit, or why ever they're doing it, and we'll have a hot new flavor trend.

The cleanup continues following a spill that flowed from the Pompeiian Oil plant caused by vandalism, allowing 5,800 gallons to seep into the drainage that flows into the harbor. Several days of cleanup may be required, an MDE official said. (Karl Merton Ferron/Sun photographer)
