OLOVES: The Healthy Olive Snack

By Wednesday, March 19, 2014 24 , , , , Permalink 0
** I RECEIVED 6 PACKS OF OLOVES FOR FREE IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THIS REVIEW. ALL OPINIONS ARE 100% MY OWN.

I am not a huge olive fan. I eat them but they are not my to-go-to snack. My husband, on the other hand, loves olives. So when we received 6 packs of OLOVES, in 3 different flavors, I knew my husband would love to help me with the review. And I was not wrong! I hadn’t even had a chance to snap a few pictures when he had gone through half the packs! Thankfully he only ate one of each flavor (hey, gotta let the wife try them out and photograph them, right?!).

{From PDX with Love} OLOVES: The Healthy Olive SnacksOLOVES was born in Spain, has its headquarters in West Sussex, and is sold in 14 different countries around the world. And I am not surprised they are all over.

 

What is OLOVES?

  • healthy olive snack
  • all natural
  • great snack for vegans and vegetarians
  • low in saturated fats & naturally high in good fats

  • great for on-the go

{From PDX with Love} OLOVES: The Healthy Olive SnacksIf you are a fan of olives you might be familiar with the olives found at the grocery store. They come in either a can or a glass jar, full of liquid. But OLOVES has little to no liquid.

Each bag is easy to open, is small in size which makes it easy for on the go snacking. And if your kids, unlike mine, love olives, OLOVES are great for lunch!

 

OLOVES: The Healthy Olive Snack

We got the opportunity to try three of their flavors: Tasty Mediterranean, Lemony Lover, and Hot Chilli Mama.

OLOVES: The Healthy Olive Snacks OLOVES: The Healthy Olive Snacks OLOVES: The Healthy Olive SnacksI tried an olive from each pack, like I said, I am not an olive eater. One thing that I really liked was that they were not dripping in vinegar (I dislike vinegar and its smell dearly). Although the olives were a bit dry (due to the lack of liquid) I much prefer eating OLOVES over your everyday olive snacks in glass bottles or cans.

My favorite? Tasty Mediterranean. The mix of herbs and flavors is simply delicious. Don’t get me wrong, all three flavors are great but they just couldn’t beat the amazing taste of the Mediterranean!

My husband really like them. There was one thing, though, he was not a big fan of: since OLOVES has very little liquid the olives are not as juicy as those that come in a jar. But this did not stop him from enjoying his snacks.

My husband’s favorite? Tasty Mediterranean. I guess great minds do think alike!

    I am a huge fan of flavored olives. My favorite are the stuffed kind with garlic. I could eat those by the jar.
