For as long as I can remember, olives have been a favorite of mine. As a kid, I would sneak green olives out of my parents' Manhattans. And if olives of any kind were part of an appetizer tray during the holidays, I would pretty much devour them all.
As an adult, I still love to snack on olives. So when asked to review Pearls Olives to Go through a Fit Approach and Sweat Pink campaign, I immediately said yes. I love olives and I especially love olives that are easy and convenient to transport and eat on anytime, anywhere.
Pearls Olives sent me an adorable insulated lunch tote plus four types of olives: Green Pimento-Stuffed Olives, Black Olives, Sliced Black Olives and Kalamata Olives. I immediately began snacking.
You know how some days you just want something salty? For me, this particular craving usually strikes mid-afternoon. Olives are the perfect fix. I brought my green olives to work and the little containers disappeared within just a few days.
Beyond snacking, these small containers of olives are just right when you want to add flavor to a salad, stew, casserole, etc. For example, the Kalamata Olives were the perfect addition to my lunch salads. And when I made chicken burritos for dinner one night, the sliced black olives added a bit of extra deliciousness.
In case you need even more reason to snack on olives, they are a great addition to a healthy diet. Five Kalamata Olives come in at just 45 calories. And you can have three Green Olives for just 25 calories. Although admittedly, I can never stick with only three ;)
So who wants to win their very own set of Pearls Olives to Go with lunch tote?
