Let's see - I put them in our taco meat, spaghetti sauce, casseroles, on top of nachos, pizza, salads - you name it, there's probably an olive variety in there when you're at our home!
So when I saw that Mario Foods was offering bloggers on Facebook the chance to review Their new On-The-Go Snack Olives, I quickly sent in my request! I was thrilled when they sent us a sampler box filled with a variety of their delicious snack olives, "packed loose without the juice".
These olives come in a perfect snack size pouch that you can tuck in a lunch box or even in your purse! They sent us black olives with natural sea salt, black olives seasoned with roasted red pepper, green olives with natural sea salt, green olives with a hint of garlic, and green olives with a hint of savory pepper. (They also have olives seasoned with Sevillian spices, and kalamata olives seasoned with a hint of thyme).
Oh my gosh, are they all delicious! My son was hooked immediately! He loved eating the olives on Ritz crackers ~ the garlic and the red pepper varieties were his favorites! Spicy and salty and wonderful - just like you'd expect! So tasty! Want more Mario olives in your life? Check out some of the great recipes Mario Foods has for you to try!
I saved a few packs to use on our first cold evening, when I made a pot of turkey chili. I decided that Pioneer Woman's Olive Cheese Bread would be perfect as a side! It is one of our family's favorites, and I've shared it here before.
Here's the original recipe:
