Bit bitter aren't they but very good for you apparently and can lower cholesterol. Always thought I didn't like them but wife bought a small tub in Nandos and I loved them. Just bought two tubs in Sainsbury's though as they're on offer and not keen again. sad.gif Must have been something they put on them in Nandos as they didn't seem bitter.

Olives are one of the only things that I really just don't want to eat. It's been years though, so perhaps I will try again sometime just to see.

I tried one over the summer after years of thinking I didn't like them, but they weren't that bad actually. You kind of regret eating it but then it becomes weirdly nice and moreish so you have another. tongue.gif Wouldn't ever go out of my way to buy them though.

Olives are amazing, you guys have to come to Greece we have like 100 different types, there HAS to be one that you like. My family owns some trees, too, so we get to harvest our own olives and it's an amazing experience. Plus, our oil is the only thing I know that's more virgin than I am, so that's a plus.

Until recently I definitely actively disliked them but I had some as an appetiser at a restaurant a couple of weeks ago because they were there and actually found them not unpleasant!

LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Although you have to get the decent ones, the cheapo ones just aren't anywhere near as good.

I used to think I hated them until we were at an Italian restaurant and the food was taking so long that they brought us some olives as a gesture - I remember thinking they were horrendous but eating them as I was so hungry and after about 10 I found they were really moreish and have never looked back.

I always want to try them (because, you know, culture and Mediterranean vibes etc.) and then they leave an aftertaste in my mouth which isn't exactly unpleasant but is close to being so, and as such I never have more than one.

They're better as oil magic.gif

(Presuming you're vegetarian?)

Most tapenade has anchovies in it (they're not even REAL FISH, they're like sissy fishies), but other regions in France use brandy and garlic instead, so you could still get away with it. happy.gif
