I like black pitted olives the best. I think the green ones are more bitter. Plus the black just looks nicer to me. :) Green reminds me of capers so variety-wise it does not do anything for the dish I am making. I tried buying black olives with seeds before but found that it was so hard to remove the seeds!!! Getting the pitted kind is worth it, definitely!

THere are some olive coloured olives in my country that are very sour. It depends on the way they are done. These olives are my favorite.

Black olives are my favorite, but I really like green olives stuffed with pimento too. I don't normally get olives that have the pits in them. I eat them too fast and the pits would get in the way.

I love all olives but I like Kalamata the best...probably because they're so salty:) I prefer to have the seeds out because they're easier to eat and it's not too attractive spitting out pits.
