I don't know whether or not I like olives.

I've had them, but I just don't know where I stand.

Yes, yes I do like pineapple on pizza.

I have tried olives many many times, the wife loves them but I just cant warm to the taste which is like salty vomit.

Think this is part of the draw for them with me. I love them, most of the time...but every now and then you get one or two that are rank af.

To be fair, black olives are the absolute worse. Green all the way, stuffed with massive garlic cloves.

Agree on the green olives, when bought here. Most black olives we can buy (if not located in the Med or similar climate) are green ones oxidised, which then turns them black. 

But black olives from source like Yagli Sele though, are less salty than our brine soaked imitators (and much less salty than me) and taste great. As does the Greek Kalamata which is much fruitier than any black olive you'll eat in the UK. Mind I've not had them for ages, I was last in Greece nigh on 7yrs ago  ::)

Will get the Yagli soon though. Great to have with a pint!

A sign of mourning. Maybe ashes scattered. Free spirit & all that.
