In our house we are total snack lovers. I try really hard to get creative and find tasty yet healthy alternatives for my family. My newest addiction, olives. Yup, I know what your thinking that’s a weird family snack. Mario Olives has made it easy to snack on these bad boys. I got this lovely package from Mario Olives full of tasty snacks.
The pouches are convenient 100 calories snack olives that are ready to eat. Packaged without the brine, and very lightly coated in olive oil to stay juicy. They come available in 3 mildly seasoned flavors, garlic, chilli, and kalamata with thyme. These are great to pack with a lunch, or afternoon snack. How about topped over an Italian style vinegar based salad. There are so many options for these low calorie bags. Chopping a few up into a homemade pizza right before you throw it in the oven.
Available at major grocery stores, at www.marioolives.com and on Amazon.

What I think:
I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty these are. I love olives to begin with, and am quite adapt to them swimming in the juice. These are still juicy and even more flavorful than the average olives in a can. My three year old downed quite a few and he is usually the picky eater of the bunch. They work perfectly for us, since we do a lot of running around and eating on the go.
