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

I was told, much to my dismay, that the Chalkidiki Giant olives will no longer be sold at TJ’s. Why not??? These are best olives and there is a strong demand for them. Please bring them back ASAP. PLEEEASE. 🙂

Love my (I mean your) chalkidiki olives! ☺️ Please please please bring them back!
– October 29, 2022
I just heard these were discontinued. I’m so disappointed and hope that there is enough demand out there for TJ to bring them back. These are my go to olive, and I always have a few jars in the pantry.

Chalkadiki olives -please get these back.on the shelf. There is nothing that compares to them.
– November 2, 2022
These olives were the main reason I shopped weekly at Trader Joe’s. I still go back occasionally just to make sure they haven’t brought them back, but every time I am so sad when I look at the olive shelves! Truly nothing compares to these olives and I am yet to find anything comparable.
– November 4, 2022
I just found out they’ve been discontinued! I’m so addicted to them. Pleaseplease bring them back or put us in touch with your supplier.
– November 15, 2022

Giant Chalkidiki Olives are the BEST olives in the world! Why on earth would Trader Joe’s stop carrying them? They are the reason that I left Gelson’s and started to shop at Trader Joe’s.
– December 3, 2022
It is an OUTRAGE that Giant Chalkidiki Olives w/pits are discontinued. The large size & meatiness allowed me to savor it for extended periods of time. I am heartbroken that the olives are no longer available. BRING THE BACK!!!!

Where did these go!? These were in my top three favorite items in all of Trader Joe’s 🙁 I miss them so much… and I really dislike blue cheese…
– January 3, 2023
Agree with all above, was so disappointed to hear they were discontinued. Please bring back these delicious olives! Thanks
If not anywhere they can be purchased please
– January 4, 2023
These are fantastic, on our shopping list always- so what happened to them??? Another poor judgement call on a discontinued item.
We just tried the ones stuffed with blue cheese- horrible! Going to return it.
Please bring back the regular Chaldkidi ones.

These olives are wonderful!!!! When will they be restocked ????we buy 4 and 5 bottles at a time !
– January 16, 2023
Insane that these are discontinued!!! I am fully addicted to them, possibly the best product in the store? BRING THEM BACK.
– January 19, 2023
I’m so glad I bought a few jars at a time, because I was told last week that TJ’s will not be carrying them anymore 🙁
– January 21, 2023
These are the most fantastic olives I have ever tasted. R.i.p.
Has anyone found anything similar????
I have gone through an awful assortment and wastes of many terrible olives looking for similar. TIA!
P.s. this is kind of a crippling addiction. I drink the juice as well LOL – having withdrawals. Sos.
– January 26, 2023
PLEASE bring these olives back!!!!
