    Best tasting olives

    Published by Caroline on May 9th 2024

    These are so flavorful. Thought that it was bad that our local store didn’t carry them. Then found these and we are so fortunate. These are an upgrade. Will continue to order as long as they carry them. Love them. Flavor is intense and amazing. This is just such a step up from anything we have ever had. Please don’t ever want to be without them. Thank you for making them.

    The best I’ve had of this type. Great flavor, just a touch of bitterness, no brine.

    Cured Olves

    Published by George Visgilio on Dec 29th 2022

    These are the best ones I’ve had. Some so called oil cured are packed in brine first. These are not. They have a touch of bitterness, but this is a plus.

    Best oil cured olives

    Published by Arlene Kucinski on Dec 29th 2021

    These olives are the best I've ever purchased. Go well with the Finocchiona salami on a cheese platter.

    Oil Cured Olives

    Published by Jeanne SMITH on Nov 2nd 2021

    I received my order in just a few days. The olives are as I remember then as a child. My dad would buy they for our special salad on Thanksgiving and Christmas. They are hard to get where I live. I will order them again. My only complaint is the shipping, rather expensive.

    Italian Deli Memories

    Published by Thomas Yagerhofer on Jun 28th 2021

    My Mother's cousins owned a small Italian deli near the train station in Dover, New Jersey. They used to have barrels of oil-cured olives and they were an acquired taste, but delicious. These olives come about as close as we can to the ones in the barrels.
