Have you been looking for a low-calorie, low-carb snack that actually tastes like food? And that's also good for you? That's the beauty of Oloves, pouches of green olives stuffed with your choice of flavors.
These tart treats are vegan as well as kosher. They aren't packed in juice, either, so you can nibble on an entire packet without getting your fingers wet. You don't need to cool them down, either, because they are shelf table; so, you can pack them up for a picnic, put them in your lunch box or grab them whenever you need a quick bite.
Oloves come in three flavors:
- Hot Chilli Mama, or habanero
- Lemon Lover, or lemon and garlic
- Light-Hearted Vinaigrette
- Tasty Mediterranean, or basil and garlic
I tried the basil and the habanero varieties, and both were pleasant treats that satisfied a mid-afternoon snack craving.
The price is $1 a pouch at H-E-B.
