When I first began living on my own and following a paleo lifestyle cooking became a huge part of my life. I loved researching different recipes, creating my own, and shopping for the ingredients. Being a college student I never thought it was important to spend those extra few bucks on basic ingredients such as olive oil when I could be saving them for a night out with friends. They were just basic, every day ingredients so what could be so special about the $15 bottle vs. the $7? I used to tell myself that all olive oils that are cold pressed and organic must taste the same so I always reached for the cheapest bottle on the shelf.
A few weeks ago I began using Kasandrinos extra virgin olive oil in my cooking and my view on olive oil is forever changed and I now understand the importance of using a high quality, authentic olive oil. The taste is clean and balanced, the color is bright golden yellow with a hint of green, and the aroma jumps out at you. It's simply perfection.
Kasandrinos takes pride in the quality and authenticity of their product. Their olives are grown in a warm and stable climate, hand-picked, and mechanically pressed within 48 hours of being harvested. They never use any chemicals which makes their olive oil that much better!
In addition to their olive oil, Kasandrinos has a few other products available for sale on their website such as lip balm, soap, and a body polishing scrub. They will be offering dry rubs and seasonings very soon!
