OLIVE OIL SCANDAL
Is your “extra virgin” oil even a “virgin” at all?
Shocking findings of new study—see below.
Fresh Pressed Olive Oil But here’s the good news—now there are exquisitely flavorful olive oils available in America independently certified to be 100% pure extra virgin. Even better news—as a reader of Paleohacks.com, you are entitled to receive a full-size sample bottle free, of “the world’s greatest olive oil”1—straight from the olive harvest, at the peak of flavor, freshness, and nutritional quality.

This Dr. Frazer III, MD, is offering a free bottle, out of a stock of 600, to the first 600 people who sign up for the bottle a month at $39 each. This is supposed to be the freshest, best olive oil in the world but I have a few questions.
1) I’ve been seeing this ad in various on-line food or health subscriptions for over a year so does that mean that he can’t even entice 600 people to spring for the free bottle? Aw, com’on – I know there are at least 600 gullible folks out there who would have gone for in a month. So, by my calculations, the 600 bottles should have been gone about 11 months ago.
2) About those bottles every month – if they are the standard 2 cups of oil, I’d be bathing in the stuff by now. I can’t see me using 2 cups of olive oil in one month. In fact, I don’t see very many people, except maybe those of Greek or Italian heritage, using that much and how many of those families are there? Enough to keep him in business?
3) What about supply? Suppose only 200 of those first 600 subscribe and he gets only 200 more each month. After the first month he has to supply 800 bottles (if he keeps running the ads), then the third month its going to be 1,000 bottles. He’s going to be sending this freshly pressed olive oil ALL YEAR LONG. If I’m not mistaken, oil trees bloom and set fruit once a year. Even in year-round temperate climates at most you’ll get only two crops in one year. AND he’s buying from only those small family-owned olive farms who used to sell only locally. Those small family-owned farms can only produce so much. So, where’s the rest of his supply?
Somehow I don’t believe he can honestly deliver what he promises? Do you?
