We sell them at the deli. I can mail you a jar if there are any in stock.

Aw, thanks so much! But it's probably cheaper to try and make them at home. It's been so many decades since I've had them that I really don't remember what they taste like except for "good". Plus it would be fun to say I made them myself. (Geez, now I sound like a 5 year old. )

No probs. I was kinda kidding anyway. Not sure a glass jar would get there in one piece. Here is the brand we carry. Lots to choose from. Available in the US also. Stuffed Olives | Olive-it and more!

Murray the Pimento Pup! Lol...I can just see him sitting there waiting for each little piece with his eyes twinkling and a grin. Haven't had a pic of Murray lately...how does he do with the rest of the olive?

I love almost all olives. Kalamata are the ones I always make sure to have at home. I tried a variety of North African olives and a couple of them were too bitter for my liking.

Stirling doesn't like olives enough to munch them, but he likes them enough to cook with them.

I had a friend who would give an olive or three to her cat after clipping her claws. The cat liked them enough that she would meow and offer her paw to get some.

This reminds me - I LOVE big green olives stuffed with garlic cloves - they get pickled right along with the olive and are wonderful!

Our first cat loved pimento olives. One dropped on the floor once and she chased it until the pimento fell out, then looked for a treat because, apparently, she killed the evil intruder and deserved a reward.

Oh I do! Every time I feel a little bit like GrumpyCat I watch Simon and giggle my way right out of my crabbies. What's really scary is how much OUR cat behaves like Simon's.

I agree. I'd rather eat an egg salad sandwich @ home then "dine" at any of those place. And do!
