California Ripe Olives - lunchbox recipe & fab giveaway

I was contacted recently by the California Olive Committee to promote yummy delectable California Ripe Olives.

Being a former Californian who relished the rich agriculture of the Golden State more than its shore lines, I jumped at the opportunity. :)

To read more, see a bento-friendly olive "recipe", and check out a truly fabulous giveaway (really, it's a great one!)  CLICK HERE.

I will be honest & share that I do not like olives, but my husband & 2 children live them. We go through a couple of cans a week. My children love eating them plain or on cheese pizza & my oldest likes to dunk them in guacamole! My 3 year old even has just started to tell the olive knock knock joke. I can truly say that our family would love this giveaway. Thanks for the chance.

LOVE those olives in an olive/ ansjovis tapenade on toast. YUM! Otherwise, just chopped and in a salad, but the tapenade is my favorite!

My son is the pickiest eater in the world but has loved black olives since he was tiny. He wants them on everything from his pizza to his subs to his salads. I have just started the bento lunch thing and want to use pieces as eyes on his sandwiches. Can't wait to try it soon!

My mom taught me to eat them off my fingers :$

My son is the pickiest eater in the world but he has always loved black olives. This is a kid who didn't eat his first hamburger until he was ten. He wants olives on everything from his subs to pizza to salads. Nandnof course his favorite way...right out of the container.

My six year old daughter and I like to stick them on the ends of our fingers to make froggie feet and them pop them in our mouths one by one, and yum by yum!!! Olive olives!!!

Karen said... [Reply to comment]

Love olives but need to get the kids to eat them still. Maybe this will do it if I win!

Olives are best on pizza and pasta salads!

Olives in a tomato sauce over chicken are fabulous. Also, olive penguins. Work intensive, but super cute and fun.

Stef plus 3 said... [Reply to comment]

My favorite use for california olives is in my pasta salad!!

Tamara said... [Reply to comment]

We have olives in salads, though sometimes my fiance will just grab a handful to eat. =)

I'm new to bentoing, so this would be awesome!

Chelsea Dickens said... [Reply to comment]

Favortite thing about black olives? Sticking them on my finger tips of course!

Leanne said... [Reply to comment]

I really really love olives. we put them in Turkey, tomato sauced and all sorts of stuff

Lydia Campbell said... [Reply to comment]

we each have a different favorite! i love mincing olives into muffaletta, then eating on a cracker spread with cream cheese. my daughter loves them on the end of a carrot stick - she calls them "drumsticks." and my son prefers them on the ends of his fingers!

JenGood said... [Reply to comment]

I still eat olives like a kid- off my fingertips!!

myork said... [Reply to comment]

Not many olives make it to the cutting board when I'm trying to get them ready for pizza or tacos, my kids like to eat them right out of the can. Another ploy is "taste testing" them to make sure they are "good". :)

Kiri Kiri said... [Reply to comment]

We love them plain. We just skewer them onto little mini kabobs/bento skewers.

I mostly just hand them over, LOL! The kid would be entirely fueled by olives if it were up to him.

My mother says I'd eat California Ripe Olives right out of the can, no bowl. She was afraid I'd turn into an olive.
