great one-stop shop olive mix
Tasty , but salty … and seem not to last
I would not have purchased if I had tasted them first.
Also, I’ve had them about three days — in frig, sealed, per package instructions. And, I don’t think they are going to last. I am already seeing white form on some olives. Yuck. Look to other posts mentioning a similar problem. To Amazon’s credit, the refunded the purchase price.
5 lbs of olives with no brine or storage
if you love olives
awesome, absolutely AWESOME!
However, we had had no idea how much 5 lbs would be in terms of volume. To our chagrin, there were clearly not enough olives for generous servings for 160 people, even with two bags. So… we extended them, by adding in an equal amount of a carefully drained mix of ordinary green and pitted black olives from the grocery store, stirring thoroughly and refrigerating it all for 24 hours, so that the heady aromas from these antipasto delights would spread to the more plebian ingredients we had added. Guess what? It worked! So… for any of you who love these olives but can’t afford them often enough to suit you — try extending them the same way. I think you’ll be very pleasantly surprised.
For those of you who aren’t worried by the price, forget about extending them, but don’t miss these spectacular olives — they’re truly fabulous. We didn’t have much in the way of leftovers, but we were able to take home a cup or so after the event and have been rationing them for ourselves. They’re that good! We will buy more for ourselves sometime and divide them into small packages for long term storage, just as many reviewers have suggested.
P.S. From this experience, we’ve concluded that 5 lbs. equals 40 generous servings, so, if money hadn’t been an object, we’d have needed 4 bags for 160 people. That makes it just a hair over $1 a serving, which we consider an extraordinarily good value, given how fabulous these olives really are.
The hit of the party
A good value compared to “Olive Bar” prices and just as good
if not better.
Olives to the Max!
