huge jar

I was surprised by the size of the jar and struggled to eat them. They looked great but literally had no flavour, so I threw them on salads, pizza...anything. I even made olive bread. The best olives I think are ones from the deli in oil, rather than brine.

Go mouldy too quickly

The olives themselves are fine, but I had to throw away nearly a whole jar, as it had developed a layer of mould within a few days. I scraped off the mould and discarded a few of the olives, but unfortunately, the taste of mould had spread to the olives lower down in the jar. Would be better to have in a much smaller size. Pity, as the quality of the olives is good.

Largest jar of olives - EVER

When ordering these was expecting a normal sized jar of olives, but when I received them, not only did Ocado put them in their own carrier bag but it was such a large jar! very happy with my purchase as well as surprised!

Go mouldy very quickly

I've bought these and the green versions several times in the past, more recently to marinate myself in olive oil, herbs and chillies. Given they are large jars, it usually takes some time to get through them. On each occasion I've found that a layer of mould grows on top of the brine solution and any olives floating on the surface in little more than a week after opening. Given that it's difficult to get this off without mixing the mouldy olives with the good ones, I've ended up throwing away the remainder of the jar on each occasion. Not sure what the solution to this is, other than draining the whole lot and marinating them all in oil etc in one go. Maybe it's worth the manufacturers considering adding more salt to the brine solution??
