Starbucks is typically the place I stop in to get my morning caffeine fix. But I stopped in after lunch and was still slightly hungry. Something caught my eye as I was waiting to order. Small single serving packages of flavored olives at only 50 calories each. Being the impulse shopper I am, I had to buy one of each flavor.
The packages read their imported by Milas Foods LLC (never heard of them) and the olives are from Morocco (heard of it). I purchased all three flavors at $2.25 each. Each package had exactly 13 olives each.
- Chili & Oregano – You can smell oregano, but not taste it over the very chili flavor and garlic
- Basil & Garlic – Again, I could smell the basil, but not taste it. All I tasted was garlic.
- Lemon & Rosemary – Very slight lemon flavor. Fooled be because I didn’t taste any rosemary.
Would I get them again, probably not. The flavors were just too mild for me or seemed completely off. But it’s better than choking down one of the dry scones or a sugary muffin.
