Taste test: We opened this small bag of olives and were surprised to find that it contained whole olives that appeared to be wet; the promise of "no liquid" on the bag painted a different picture.
The olives were, well, olive green in color with just a few smallish red and white spots attached to the surfaces. I tried my first one and found that it was every bit as moist and we as you would expect from an olive, and although it wasn't suspended in liquid, there was a small puddle at the bottom of the bag, so "no liquid" really didn't ring true. But the olive was great! It was bursting with flavor, with an intense taste enhanced a bit by some middling heat, then even more heat in the aftertaste. Certainly a lot different from our usual snacks, but a nice change and very good. Not something you can really eat at your desk (or during most other activities) without having to wash your hands before getting back to work.
