Or - has anyone purchased them in those tubs?

My primary desire is olives for my dirty vodka martini's. (Don't judge) I prefer blue cheese stuffed olives or pimento stuffed olives, but I'll take any green olive that tastes like they do from an olive bars in the grocery. The ones from the olive bars don't last more than a week or two in the fridge AND the $8.99/pound makes me a little crazy.

I like eating the kalamata's, so if anyone has suggestions for those, I'd be interested, too.

Find a good authentic Italian grocery or deli. I'm sure they will have something a little over the top for your dirty marts.

I won't judge......I made a dirty vodka martini for myself just a couple of hours ago

I also prefer blue cheese stuffed. I like to stuff large Spanish queen olives with my own with fresh blue cheese crumbles just before I make the drink. I don't like the ones from the olive bars. They always seem to have too much oil on them and you can't taste the blue cheese itself.

That's an interesting idea. And leftover blue cheese won't go to waste!

So where do you get the large Spanish queen olives?

I get my olives from the olive bar at my supermarket. I loved the green ones stuffed with Bue cheese.

Dirty martinis - yes, many bars offer them. I don't know how they would taste in a 'regular' gin martini.

I've not had bad jarred olives and use them in a rare martini.

What's wrong with the ones you've tried?

They just don't taste fresh. They are soft and taste more salty. The meaty texture is decreased. Those olives that are supposed to have some 'bite' to them (calvestranos and money other green olives) have lost it and are too mushy. And unless you eat the entire bottle quickly (maybe with on 30 days - that's A LOT of martinis)), they get downright mushy and pale colored.

The canned olives are even worse - bland soft crap, just like canned peas or green beans.
