    Olives in general, or that yummy looking tapenade?

    Olives in general. They're one of those foods I can't even choke down.

    I voted indifferent, because while I like them well enough, I can't say I love 'em. As ingredients in certain things, like the black ones on nachos or the green ones in martinis, they're great, but I wouldn't scarf them down by themselves for a snack.

    Actually, I don't care for martinis. But, my mom makes this great appetizer that's a cheese dough wrapped around green olives and baked. I could eat about 20 of those things without stopping.

    For me, they range from "I can take 'em or leave 'em" (e.g. kalamata olives in a Greek salad, tapenade, etc.) to "ick" (e.g. pretty much any black olives). I never love them.

    I love olives. So. Dang. Much. I want desperately to live somewhere warmer so I can have an olive tree and cure my own and eat them until I have olive oil oozing out my pores. I could eat green olives by the handful and black olives on a sandwich are the greatest thing ever invented EVER.

    I. Love. Olives.

    By the way, the plural of olive is olive.

    I bet the proper plural is "olive fruits."

    They're OK, sometimes. I don't generally choose to eat them, but I won't pick them off a pizza.

    Olive oil is the bomb-diggity.

    Adore them. Kalamatas on a greek salad, black olive slices on anything even resembling mexican food, big salty green ones to snack on, looooove them. The first time I saw an olive bar in a chi-chi pretentious grocery store I blew $50 and spent the night gleefully scarfing.

    My name is Peeta and I love olives. Kalamatas are probably my faves, but I really do like them all. I'll even throw the green ones into chili.

    I can eat all olives in vast quantities. Almost up there with coffee for me. Black or Green, both delicious.

    And I think Zuul and I must be related or something, coz our food tastes are quite similar.
