Rewarded Review

These olives are magical! I have never before tasted an olive so fragrant, salty and subtle at the same time. The texture is midway between dry and juicy. MM recommended so a sure bet. I was so happy that there were olives we can eat! And how wonderful they are indeed! Enjoy!

I loved the flavor of these olives. They are dried so the taste was very different from any canned, jarred, or fresh olives that I have tried before and I liked the uniqueness. The problem I had was that although these are pitted, they do unfortunately have more pit pieces remaining than other olives I have tried. I found one big unpleasant pit piece and other olives also had small crunchy bits, so I don’t think they did a good job of removing the pits compared to other olive brands and I was worried about my teeth while eating these. The flavor was really superb though so I might still be willing to eat it again, but I recommend you eat it slowly and carefully. Also these are pretty salty compared to other olives if you don’t like saltiness (personally this didn’t bother me but I couldn’t eat too many at once because of the saltiness).

Comparable to Greek sun-dried olives Flavorful Upping my olive consumption because olives, olive oil or olive polyphenols are supposed to help with osteoporosis. And there's no down side... tasty! And... I love Peru!

Didn’t know what to expect from these olives, but I love the taste and quality . The saltiness and slight bitterness adds a nice touch to my potato salad.

It had very deep flavour and a little goes a long way cos it is very salty. Give a quick rinse is fine but it is pricey for this small bag

I think I am turning into a black olive! I consume so many of these. Add a fantastic salty umami quality to dishes. Strong flavor. Nice moist texture. Less one star because of the price....they keep going in price as well.

I was worried after reading reviews here with half of bag filled with brown dry olives that went to the bin - but fortunately mine came in perfect condition - all very plump and the taste is divine, best olives ever, and I live in the middle east with olive trees around me... so I highly recommend as boutique olives, pricey good quality for special dishes, sandwiches, pasta, salads or just as is.

A bit oily. But you can taste the fruit in its natural state. Fruity. Will buy again.

These olives taste amazing. They are very addicting , I can eat the whole bag. I eat them from the bag, slice them and put it in salads or use it as a pizza topping. I always have a few bags on hand. Definitely will buy them again.

First three orders were awesome. Later on, whenever I ordered them I havent been satisfied. Looks like taste has changed and I am really sorry because of that, since I havent eaten better olives until recently. Looks like quality and ingredient list has changed
