          All you need is popping corn and some butter. You can get a You can still use a microwave. $2 for 400g from Woolies or Coles or larger packs from harris farm. Avoid the chemically flavoured rubbish.

    Glad I stocked up last year on the olive oil. How do they justify a 20% price increase in 6 months ?

    Hopefully it's this year's vintage. Or is it too early ?

    • +2 votes

      Yes I also recognise their price hike. I now would go for woolworths own brands strong (rich and robust) flavour Australian extra virgin olive oil which is also great taste. It's cheaper than their half price.

      •  

        it's the same price per litre: $6 for a 500ml bottle.

        I'm loving the Jengelli olive oil range atm.

      Most fresh produce has gone up by that amount at least. People might say it's a supply chain issue, but I lean towards thinking it's actual inflation at work.

      2020 was an absolutely terrible year for olive harvest. There was a nationwide shortage and the 'average bulk' price of EVOO went from around $5.20 to $6++
      Just check their harvest date on their bottle. Good chance that it would be new harvest as they started harvesting in late March (from what i was told) and would filter to put in the bottle.

      •  

        And it is a currently a bumper season for olives so we may see an oversupply in the market later on in the year.

  •  

    Does Cobram just have normal olive oil and not extra virgin?

    I really like their own but their low smoke point is annoying

    • +1 vote

      The smokepoint difference is ~20c with extra virgin olive oil being around 190* and refined olive oil being 210*.

      IMO just stick with extra virgin olive oil. It's healthier all around even when baking for long period at 180*. Even if you go past the smoke point for a short while it's still shown to nowhere near as bad for you as seed oils with a high smoke point.

        Thanks, how often do these go on special? $2 for 100ml is a bit expensive

        •  

          I found it on special 2-3 months ago, at cole or Woolworth I cant remember.

      •  

        I do wonder if this is a scam or not.

        Not to say the it isn't a great EVOO, but is the EVOO high heat any better or just a cash grab.

    To be honest, $7.5 to $9 is a huge increasing.

    This isn't really very good oil, try red island you won't go back. I recently kids my farm source of olive oil so I bought every single brand and taste tested with plain white bread. Yuck, some brands tasted like motor oil, Cobram is ok but free island actually tasted like nice extra virgin olive oil. Grassy, green and peppery.

    Plus Cobram kept blocking up my oil sprayer.

    • +2 votes

      Tried both and have to disagree. Cobram also have 3 taste varieties.

      •  

        What on colour, for me that's always a dead give away for the quality, it should be green not bright yellow.

        •  

          Red island and Cobram is owned by the same company; Boundary Bend
          Cobram is their 'flagship' brand so gets their best quality oil

    • +2 votes

      FYI Red Island is owned by the same company as Cobram. https://www.boundarybend.com/about/brands-2/

      IIRC Red Island is actually positioned as their more budget offering.

      I've personally found them very similar, and both quite good. Though usually find better value on Red Island.

      If Choice is to be believed, then generally getting Olive Oil made in or close to Australia will be better. Mostly this is due to the age of the EVOO and the difficulties of shipping it and retaining it's qualities from far away. https://www.choice.com.au/food-and-drink/nuts-and-oils/oils/...

      •  

        Correct, Cobram (and the identical looking Aldi bottles - exactly same oil, different label) are their premium/higher graded olives.

        Red Island are their lower grade, but still very good, olives.

    •  

      Sorry can't agree.

      I purchase both brands (same owners) depending what's on sale.

      Red Island is cheaper, but I prefer Cobram (could be psychological).

    For some reason I feel like Coles gonna run a half price promo of this olive oil next week.

    •  

      You can leave till next Monday evening to buy it. I remember Coles has it on half price in March / April this year

      My concern with imported stuff is that it's not pure

      • +1 vote

        I think that giants like Aldi actually do test stuff they order and sell under their own brand. Whether it's the best quality or not is debatable but chances that it'd be fake are pretty low.

    I have noticed a few Woolies price hikes. Eg 1 kg Mayfields middle bacon was $9 a pack for all of last year and the year before? and is now $11.

    22% hike!

    •  

      Also British Sausage Company packs used to be 2 for $12 on sale, now $2 for $14

    Obligatory reminder that Aldi still sells Cobram Estate made Aldi-branded oil at $9/L and made in Spain oil at 6.70/L

    •  

      Out of curiosity, how can U tell it's from Cobram?

      • +2 votes

        It was mentioned here quite a few times and Cobram has some distinctive packaging, like only Cobram makes 225g olive oil spray cans and that's exactly what sold at Aldi under The Olive Tree brand.

        •  

          that's good to know !

      Aldi also sell Australian made Olive Oil for $9/l.

    •  

      I'm not going to confirm either way if Aldi still sells Cobram Estate made Aldi-branded oil but Aldi scored poorly against Cobram

      •  

        Makes sense that Cobram reserve its best oils for its own brands.

      •  

        You comparing $9/L oil from Aldi vs $24/L Cobram not on special in Woolies.

        While I agree that quality might be different, but whether it's almost 3 times different.. not sure. The other consideration here is how long that $24/L oil is sitting on the shelves in Woolies vs very fast turnaround in Aldi and age of oil apparently matters too.

        So.. you decide, no one is forcing you to buy one or another.

        •  

          Chill.

          I'm not comparing prices.

          I'm just stating the fact that Aldi-branded oil scored poorly against Cobram.

          No one on OZB is paying $24/L.

          They only harvest Olives once a year and unopened, 12 month old Olive oil is still fresh.

          FYI, you can buy Red Island for ~$8/L on sale. So cheaper and better than Aldi.

  •  

    Coles & Woolies both currently selling 3L Cobram for $36 / $9 discount which is 0.012 per ml vs 0.048 per ml for the 750ml.

    •  

      Umm. No. Please check your calculations.

      9 / 750 * 1000 = 12/L

        woops. yep

    •  

      One benefit of the bottles is that it can stay fresher longer as it may take you a long time to finish 3L.

      Not to mention the free bottle.

      •  

        Do you reuse the bottle for something else? I always bin them..

        •  

          I keep a couple.

          I refill a couple with Rice Bran oil for frying.

    Thanks OP.

    Thanks OP. Rolled in just in time as my stocks are low from the last deal. Now if Aldi brought back their $10 sun-dried tomatoes, salads will be back on the menu.
