This post is not about the Dodgers.
It is instead about a new discovery.
It is about olives.
Giant Chalkidiki Olives from Trader Joe’s to be exact.
They are are gorgeous and meaty yet fruity, well rounded in flavor with both a palatable acidity and a subtle richness,
allowing for both a smooth-like butter texture and notes of clean sea water.
One can imagine if fresh sea water was filled with groves of underwater thriving olive trees, who infused the waters with their essence, essence of olive, by the second, the minute and the day, this is what the brine would taste like.
The brined fruit holds the color of it’s very name. You may find yourself wanting to drink the brine, you may even think it would be good to “dirty” your martini with, but you will most likely find the taste of the martini, cleaner then it was to begin with somehow.
I would not know, but if imagination serves me correctly, I trust that to be the case.
Maybe you can enjoy some olives while you watch the game.
Maybe I will go see what all the fuss is about re said game. I am learning though, how when one grows up in a home without an emphasis on sports, one focuses on less competitive and excitable past times, such as writing up reviews of much appreciated food items. That is fine by me for now. Perhaps one day I will become more well-rounded and develop an interest in watching a baseball game. Perhaps.

Dear Trader Joe’s,
Please, please, please do not cancel stocking your shelves with these scrumptious, delicious, mouth watering and addictive olives. I buy them 3 jars at a time because my family can not get enough. Seriously, I will make a 30 minute drive to the nearest Trader Joe’s, just to buy these olives. But I always find a shopping cart full of other things that my family loves. Begging you to restock the shelves right now.

SHOCKED TO FIND OUT THAT T.J’S HASN’T HAD THESE ON THE SHELVES OF CHICAGO AREA STORES. THESE OLIVES WERE MY GO TO GARNISH FOR MY VODKA MARTINIS, AND MY GREEK SALADS. SAW A SIMILAR ITALIAN OLIVE NOW BEING SOLD AT T.J.’S BOUGHT A JAR LAST WEEK. NO COMPARISON. WON’T BE MAKING THAT MISTAKE AGAIN. DON’T SETTLE FOR A POOR SUBSTITUTE. DEMAND THAT CHALKADIKI OLIVES BE BROUGHT BACK TO TRADER JOES. THANKS

Shocked and saddened to hear these olives will be discontinued I buy 6-7 jars at a time and eat them daily. I literally almost broke down and cried when the cashier told me they were discontinuing. Please reconsider TJ
