Searching for Savory: Part 6

Full disclosure: I love olives in general and have gone through nearly a dozen Oloves packs during the course of my running career.

When I am at REI (which is not very often), I almost always pick up a package or two of Oloves. They're shelf-stable, convenient, and delicious. They have four flavors, and I enjoy them all. I think lemon & rosemary is my favorite because it's delightfully piquant, and although I love the spicy flavors, you don't always want spice or garlic on a runner's stomach. You know what I mean.

Olives make for a great running food. They're savory, salty, and juicy, not messy or crumbly, and easy to eat. In fact, I would bring olives more often if I could find a good way to carry them, so they don't leak juice or go bad. Oloves solves those problems and provides a great portion size.

Unfortunately they also cost more than I'm willing to spend on a regular basis... at least at full retail. For some reason I've never purchased them on Amazon until today, when I looked and discovered that you can get variety packs or even just one flavor in multiples for just over a dollar each! Woohoo!
