      Very helpful



      A good cooking olive.

      I used to buy these all the time when I shopped at Tesco's and I now buy sainsburys own, which are just as good.

      I have never really been too sure what pimento was, but I believe it's some sort of pepper, which they use to stuff these olives. It doesn't taste like pepper though, it doesn't really taste of anything, and is always a bit jelly like in consistency, it's not offensive but it does seem a little pointless.

      I think a jar of these costs about between £1.00 and £1.50 and most supermarkets do their own version.

      One thing I like is that the olives are stored in brine and not in oil, I hate getting oil on my hands so it's a bonus for me.

      The olives themselves are quite small in size and very soft, if you open them and leave them too long they can go a bit soggy, but I never had much of an issue, as they go pretty quickly in my house. I would say that I used these more for adding to cooking, just because they are so soft, but I would eat them on their own too.

      I would say though that these olives are mega salty, mainly because of the brine they are kept in. Olives are a salty food anyway, but I find these extra salty due to the brine.

      If I am serving olives as part of a meal on their own, I would buy bigger better quality olives, but for everyday use in cooking and for the occasional snack these are fine.

      A great one to keep in the fridge and for adding to cooking and the odd snack.
