Olives are a staple in our home. We love their salty, tangy flavor! When our love affair with olives began, we mostly stuck with plain black olives from a can, but over the years our tastes have broadened. Nowadays, I head to our grocery's olive bar about once a week and stock up on kalamata olives, haldiki olives, manzanilla olives, whatever strikes our fancy. Olives in brine, olives in oil.... 3Po, Jammy, Alfie and I can't get enough of them! There isn't an olive we won't try, and so far, there isn't an olive we don't like. So when Oloves olives offered to send us samples of their flavored green olives, we were thrilled!
Oloves are green olives infused with some pretty yummy flavors, packed into 30g portions. They're gluten free, vegan friendly, 100% kosher.... and 100% delicious. I can't think of a better name than Oloves, because we sure do love them. I love the individual portions, because it means I can throw a pack into their lunchboxes. Each portion is 50 calories, which makes it easy to control your portions (the boys can eat them like potato chips, so it's way too easy to overeat!).
Oloves are currently available in the following flavors;
Basil and Garlic
Chili and Garlic
Lemon and Rosemary
Chili and Oregano
The Basil and Garlic is everyone's favorite, and the Lemon and Rosemary give a refreshing twist. Alfie loves the 2 varieties with Chili because he likes it hot! Oloves are a great snack all on their own, or you can toss them together with cubed tomatoes, cubed cucumbers, thinly sliced red onions, crumbled feta cheese, and a splash of red wine vinegar and olive oil for a delicious Greek salad! Normally I'd use kalamata olives, but using the flavored Oloves gives the salad a unique taste and sets it apart from the classic Greek salad. Yum!
