I was delighted to be asked to review the Oloves range of healthy snacks. I absolutely love olives, so the idea of these ready to eat olives in handy on-the-go pouches is really appealing to me. Oloves are 100% natural, deli-style olives, in convenient servings with only 50 calories each. They're made for easy snacking and I love the fact that there are no annoying pits or messy liquid in any of the 30g pouches. I received three varieties to try; Hot Chilli Mama, Lemony Lover, and Tasty Mediterranean.
|Oloves Tasty Mediterranean Olives
The olives themselves were all deliciously plump and tender. The three different flavours were actually all quite similar in taste - the green olives themselves are very much the stars of the show. Each bag contained approximately twelve olives.
Hot Chilli Mama - Pitted green olives with habanero chillies. Don't expect an intense chilli kick here. These contain a very mild level of heat which compliments the green olives very well.
Lemony Lover - Pitted green olives with lemon & garlic. The lemony flavour adds a lovely tang to the olives, whilst the garlic flavour is very subtle.
Tasty Mediterranean - Pitted green olives with basil & garlic. These were my favourite of the three as they had the most flavour. The hints of basil and garlic create a simple, delicious, and classic, flavour combination.
I was really impressed with the Oloves range. They're a fantastic savoury snack that's much healthier than the usual salty alternatives. The fresh flavours are delicious and moreish, and they're so convenient to keep handy for a quick snack.
Oloves are available at Holland & Barratt, will be stocked at Shell Garages (in the chiller cabinet) and soon to be in all NUS student union shops and bars. They're also available on many airlines as the in-flight snack of choice!
