  1. Where can I buy the Buttered Flavored Olive Oil? Can’t find at the Stores where I used to purchase. Please HELP, I love this product.

    I am so upset that the butter flavored olive oil has been discontinued. Will you ever carry it again? Yours was the best and we ordered it by the case. You had the market on it. I sure wish you would reconsider.
