Athenos extra virgin olive oil is a very good, very affordable, smooth and clean tasting oil with not a trace of bitterness. I use it for cooking everything. It’s good enough to use for salad dressing as well. I do not see it listed on the company website, when I’ve called the company they have repeatedly stated that it is not showing up as having been discontinued however it has pretty much disappeared from supermarket shelves.
Don’t let the “subsidiary of Kraft Foods” fool you, this stuff is good. I am not at all a fan of Athenos cheese or hummus, they’re crap. Athenos olive oil is in a league of its own. I am beyond bummed out. If any industry insiders have any suggestions as to how I can find out the current status I would be profoundly grateful, hoping against hope that they are still producing, perhaps under a different name?
