Mario Snack Olives Review

Thursday, May 24, 2012 Posted by Dina N

My family loves olives. We use them on salads, in appetizers, and in my favorite Spanish quiche recipe. We also buy olive oil by the gallon. A salad at my table is never complete without some olive oil!

It never occurred to me that olives can be a portable snack - until I discovered Mario Snack Olives. They pack olives in convenient pouches. Each pouch holds 1.75 oz of olives - 100 calories worth. I am used to eating olives that come in jars or cans with liquid, so I was concerned that the olives in brine-less pouches may be dry. They are not - they taste great, just as if they came in a just-opened jar. The olives are lightly coated in olive oil to stay juicy and delicious.The Mario Snack Olives are available in three varieties: Manzanilla Olives with Garlic and Thyme, Manzanilla Olives with Chili and Thyme, and Kalamata Olives with Thyme. My favorite are the Kalamata olives. My husband, who loves spicy food, inhaled the chili-seasoned olives and asked me to get a few more boxes.

My only complaint is the high salt content. If that bothers you, I suggest rinsing out the olives before eating. That might interfere with the seasonings, though. I'd top a green salad with them and skip the salt. Otherwise, Mario Snack Olives are a perfect snack: at home, at school, or at the office.

You can find Mario Snack Olives at major grocery chains, as well as at their online store and on Amazon. Connect with Mario Camacho Foods on Facebook and Twitter (@brandmario).

    We love olives too and you're right, I never thought of them being a take along pouch snack. Thanks for the heads up!

    I haven't heard of these olives before. I wonder if my grocery store has them? Your idea of rinsing the olives to remove excess salt is a good one.

    I've never tried these kind of olives before, maybe I should.

    Thank you for this review. My daughter is going to love you. :) She is what I call an olive addict. I can't keep them in the house long enough with her. I never heard of Mario's but what a unique idea. I use olives in just about everything. I can't wait to check them out online. Thanks again.

    I love the idea of olives as a portable snack! These sounds convenient--and they come in fun flavors! I will keep an eye out for them as a nice alternative snack.
