We've been kind of obsessed with the site Brandless ever since it launched last summer. More than just a clever name, the retailer sells products that are essentially brandless, which passes massive savings onto the consumer. While national brands have to pay for marketing, distribution, placement on shelves, and more, Brandless skips all that and sells products online only. Because the company's costs are minimal, everything on the site can be sold for $3 (there are bundled products for $3 times the number of products in the set — it's simple math).
With everything being so cheap, it's easy to load up on a ton of stuff and somehow spend a lot of money (although it will still cost you less than if you recreated the same shopping cart on another site). It's also easy to be dubious. How do you know you're not just wasting $3 on something you won't like?
To help you, we've been using a lot of Brandless products. One favorite product emerged.
Of all the snacks, ingredients, tools, and cleaners on the site, we're the most excited about the Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. For starters, it's only $3 for an 8.5-ounce bottle. (As a reference, our favorite grocery store olive oil is $10 for 16.9 ounces on Amazon Fresh.)
Buy: Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, $3 for 8.5 ounces
It's not just cheap — it's also good. It's mild enough to use as an everyday olive oil (read: roasting vegetables) and buttery enough to use in a salad dressing or a basic bread-dipping situation. And it's from Italy! (We challenge you to find another bottle of real Italian olive oil that's $3!)
We're not the only ones who like it: Company reps tells us it's consistently one of the top-selling items. Other top sellers include the Sea Salt Quinoa Chips, and more recently the Organic Beef Jerky and Cranberry & Almond Bars.
Note: Shipping is $5 for all orders that are less than $39. If you're a B.More member or place an order that's $39 or more, shipping is free.
