Olives come in jars. That’s what experience leads one to think. But we’ve got some olives that forego the jar for a much cozier (and more charming) container. Trader Joe’s Marinated Olive Duo with Lemon and Herbs
shows up in a vacuum-sealed pouch that is a visual stunner.
The flatter presentation allows you to see exactly what’s in the bag—and what’s in the bag
are two kinds of olives, both grown, harvested and processed in Greece.
The first part of the Duo
is the Kalamata
, named for the city and region on the Peloponnese peninsula from which it comes. Often described simply as “Greek olives,” kalamatas have deep, dark-purple color and an oblong shape. They are sweet, rich, and plump, and here, they are marinated in salt
, red wine vinegar
, and sunflower oil
with sliced green and red peppers
Its dynamic partner is the Chalkidiki
, an olive that originates on a peninsula that bears the same name and is located farther north, next to Macedonia. Chalkidki olives are robust and green, and ours are brined simply in salt
and ascorbic acids
We’ve intentionally used less salt to allow for the ripe olive flavors to really shine, and all of the olives are marinated with Greek lemon
before being vacuum-sealed for freshness. Their flavor and presentation is excellent for adding verve to antipasti, or for enhancing your cocktail party snacking. And with such uncommon and stunning packaging, these Grecian olives make a notable addition to a care package, or serve as an impressive host or hostess gift.
Each 8.8-ounce bag of Marinated Olive Duo with Lemon and Herbs
from Greece is just $1.79

Tastes like a brownie
and crunches like a cookie
. Do we need to continue? Oh, yes, we can continue.
You see, we took months to perfect this particular product—because if we were going to go here, we really wanted to get it right. When our tasting panel tried the original incarnation, the reaction was a universal “Ooh, I want to love these, but right now I just kind of like them.”
We knew there was something there, but it wasn’t complete. So we kept trying. And this is not something about which we can complain. After all, these are brownie cookies we’re talking about; at no time at all were they bad. Ever.
Months went by and one day, magic happened. The brownie flavor and the crunchy cookie texture married perfectly. Somehow, when you took a bite of that crunchy cookie, all you tasted was brownie.
And so the story of Trader Joe’s Brownie Crisp
ends. Really though, this is where the story begins, because this is where you come in to your neighborhood TJ’s
, pick up a bag and bring it home (or at least as far as your car). You’ll take a bite and swear “Cookie!” And then just as quickly, “Brownie!”
You’ll doubt our claims of vegan
and gluten free
(though they’re definitely definitive). And you’ll plan your next trip to TJ’s
perhaps a bit quicker than you’d originally scheduled.
We’re selling each five-ounce bag of kosher-certified Brownie Crisp
, every day.
