I like any olive I have tried, but I can't say I'd try the olives Rock posted...
It's that whole, I've gotta like the looks of what I'm putting in my mouth thing
But I buy Kalamattas the most frequently.

I think I fit in that category. Oh, sure, I have no problem popping an olive into my mouth and eating it. And I like olives in or on top of things. They don't repulse me. But I don't really go out of my way to eat them by themselves, and I certainly don't crave them. I think it has more to do with the amount of salt they contain. I'm not into pretzels or most chips for the same reason.

By the way, BT... what's up with the Canadian/Australian/English spelling of favourite with the superfluous "U"?

Are you going colonial on us, lol?

I soak my olives in filtered water, about three soaks and the salt is mostly removed and you can taste the olive.

I used to like the green Spanish olives stuffed with pimentoes. But I have developed a sensitivity to oversalted foods. So now for a snack I just buy ONE can of California black olives. If I buy more than one can, I will sit and eat more than one can. I get the small ones. More to the can. I have a pitter and when I buy the oil cured Kalamata, I get the ones with the pit.

I believe he has the answer to that saved somewhere so he can just copy & paste it when asked

I think Canada is rubbing off on us Southerners. Just don't send all that cold down here in the winter.

My favorite olive is a Lindsay ripe green olive. Hard to find though.
