Oro di Oliva in Wauwatosa

Last Saturday, I stopped by Oro di Oliva in Wauwatosa to check it out and use my Groupon. We finally got to the point where we finished our olive oil and I was itching to use this Groupon up.


The store is located in downtown Wauwatosa, on Harwood Avenue. It's clean and simple inside. They also have a location in Whitefish Bay.

After taste testing about five different flavors, I picked out a Jalapeno flavored oil. It was $20 for the largest size of 350 mL and my Groupon was worth exactly $20, so that worked out perfectly. I really preferred that flavor to others and I knew Craig would enjoy it too. I figured it would be great on quinoa and pasta dishes this summer.

The description of the Jalapeno from their website: Whole Jalepenos are pressed with olives to make this unique oil. Wonderful peppery taste that adds a nice glow to food without leaving your mouth burning.

I tested out some of their flavored balsamic vinegars. There were so many delicious flavors to choose from! One of my favorites was the pomegranate balsamic. It was so yummy! I am sure I will be back to get that sometime.

If you are looking for a nice gift for someone or a gift certificate, I definitely would recommend Oro di Oliva.

This post is my opinion and I was in no way compensated by Oro di Oliva.
