“Once someone tries a real extra virgin -- an adult or a child, anybody with taste buds -- they'll never go back to the fake kind. It's distinctive, complex, the freshest thing you've ever eaten. It makes you realize how rotten the other stuff is, literally rotten. But there has to be a first time. Somehow we have to get those first drops of real extra virgin oil into their mouths, to break them free from the habituation to bad oil, and from the brainwashing of advertising. There has to be some good oil left in the world for people to taste.”
Tom Mueller, Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil

“It says what every olive oil says: 100 percent Italian, cold-pressed, stone ground, extra virgin..."

He shook his head, as if unable to believe his eyes. "Extra virgin? What's this oil got to do with virginity? This is a whore.”
Tom Mueller, Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil

“Olive oil is the only commercially significant vegetable oil to be extracted from a fruit rather than from seeds, like sunflower, canola, and soy oil.”
Tom Mueller, Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil
