I grew up outside of Philadelphia and despised olives until 4 years ago when my mother-in-law brought these babies home. Now you have to understand, I hate olives, but I love Garlic. So, my mother-in-law says to try it and maybe the garlic will overrun the olive taste. So I give them a try. Needless to say four years and about 500 olives later, I'm so hooked on these olives. I have tried to find them at other so-called Italian deli's, but to no avail. The closest came from my local Whole Foods grocery store, but even then, it was not close. I am writing this because I am trying to get those olives sent to Philly. I can only get them if my in-laws visit or if I visist them out on the Island.
Besides the fantastic olives ( and there are many), the food is equally as good.
