I like all types of olives I have tried thus far, but if I had to pick a favorite, I think it would have to be the black olive. They are delicate yet have a commanding flavor. Seeing those photos in this topic makes me want to go eat a big pile of them!! What is your favorite type of olive?

I do not like olives at all Bethany i am afraid! If I had to say my favourite thing about Olives it would be their oil as I can find uses for that! xxx

It's okay -- not everyone likes them. My boyfriend cannot stand olives, but he also uses olive oil.

I'll go for the black olives too. I like the taste and it gives my salads and dishes a more distinct taste. The black color gives a nice contrast to the other colors of vegetables and ingridients in my cookings.

It certainly does look nice and add good contrast.

I don't think I really care for black olives. I know I can't get enough of the green ones. I buy them in the larger jar. I don't even know what meals they can go in. I eat them out of the jar as a snack. My mother loves black ones as well as my daughter.

Are those the really salty and strong-flavored ones which usually have a pit? They are good too! Mm I really want some olives now but I don't think I have any in the house at the moment...

I only like them when they're covered with mayonaise, sour cream, cheese or something to conceal the flavor. I can't stand to eat them by themselves, but if they're in a taco or pizza, I can eat them.
