Garlic Gold: Garlic Gold and Garlic Gold Oil Review and Giveaway
Introductions and cooking are remarkably similar, and both can be challenging. When a person embarks on learning to cook the introduction to the oils is inevitable. After a while a comfortably sets in and a distinction in flavor becomes noticeable – that is where the introduction of flavored olive oils is made.
I recently made an introduction of my own to Garlic Gold. Garlic Gold’s beginnings were unlike most companies, but completely unique. Garlic Gold began as a high school economics project by Rinaldo Brutoco for his son Orion. The students created a business plan around Rinaldo’s garlic recipe with crunchy toasted garlic nuggets included. The students packaged, labeled and sold the project at the local farmer’s market.
Today that student project is a company that believes that the legitimate precursors to success are having corporate responsibility, creating sustainability and always having integrity. Taking into account the company’s philosophy I was interested to see if the product was as good as I hoped it would be. I was sent the following USDA certified items for review:

Garlic Gold Oil – Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette: I did not know what to expect when I tried the olive oil, as I have limited experience with anything other than generic store bought olive oil. The Garlic Gold Oil – Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil was a clean and solid taste that was infused with garlic. I used it to make the chicken and it was the perfect cooking assistant and added much needed flavor to a otherwise flavorless meal.
I used the Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette on a salad, and WOW!! It was so good that we have been rationing the portions so we have plenty of salads ahead of us. This is not an overpowering lemon taste, but enough that leaves no doubt it is lemon. If you are a fan of lemon (which I happen to be), you have to try this!
Garlic Gold Nuggets, Garlic Gold Italian Herb Nuggets, Garlic Gold Parmesan Nuggets and Garlic Gold Sea Salt Nuggets: I was able to try four varieties of these and each one was great. I used Garlic Gold Nuggets in my chicken and used the Garlic Gold Sea Salt Nuggets on broccoli. Each flavor I was able to taste the garlic without it being overwhelming.
The Garlic Gold Parmesan Nuggets were awesome added to the top of pizza and the Garlic Gold Italian Herb Nuggets was beyond good in spaghetti. These would add a needed element to anything you added them to, in addition to adding a versatility in taste.
While many introductions that you will encounter in life have to potential of being unknown and scary I can assure you, your introduction to Garlic Gold will be easy and long overdue. Now that I have been introduced, there is no going back. I can not imagine not incorporating these products into my nightly cooking routine – they are that good! I encourage everyone to give any of these products a try – you may just meet your new BFF!
