This post is LONG overdue. My friend Heidi brought us a goody bag years ago that included two jars of Organic Divina olives. First of all, I love olives. Second of all, I love filthy dirty martinis, which are only as good as the olive juice.
I've had olives of every size, shape, origin and color, and firm mild green ones are a favorite.
These Organic Divina olives are in a class by themselves. Firm-fleshed, not too salty, sort of buttery, mild and flavorful. Seriously, simply the perfect green olive marinating in barely cloudy juice that begs for top-tier vodka.
They are grown in Northern Greece, where they are cultivated organically--no pesticides, coloring or additives.
I set out to buy them and had to get them on Vitacost. They are not inexpensive at $4.59 a 10.2-oz jar, but worth it and if you buy 11 jars, shipping is free (haha!).
Olives are full of good fat and delicious flavor, which makes them a great snack. Hope you get to try them and leave me your thoughts!
