Are you somebody who likes olives? If you are, then you are in for a whole lot of olive bashing.
For some reason, they have become some sort of a delicacy in America. For example, when we see them, it’s usually in a fancy spread surrounded by gourmet cheeses, crackers, spreads, and of course, wine! Tapenade anyone?
We view them as fancy, something you savor to enjoy. You need to build up a palette to understand the different flavors that go into all of the different kinds of these round salty ‘snacks.’ However, if you need to build up a liking for something… doesn’t it just kinda suck?
Honestly, I think it’s time we all become honest and just admit that they are kinda gross.
Olives come in all different ‘kinds’ but they’re all the same flavor
Firstly, can we talk about how there are like a BILLION types of these things? There are green, black, stuffed, more green ones. But tell me the truth, can you REALLY tell the difference? Like for real?
I only ask because every single one tastes the exact same to me: salty, gross, and more salty.
Why are olives in EVERYTHING?
Have you ever noticed that they are in pretty much every single food group??
Just look at how many different meals olives just somehow find themselves in.
Olives on pizza
We put them on bread that already has olives in it??
There olives in nachos?
Why are they in my DRINKS???
I accept that I don’t get to choose what recipes have in them; however, the flavor is so intrusive that even if you pick it off, it only tastes like salt.
Do people actually like them?
Correct me if I’m wrong but if they are in e in so many different foods, people must actually like them???
So to conclude: Olives suck and they keep ruining my pizza
