These are the ultimate pimiento stuffed olives, and a hands down favorite within the La Tienda community! The sweet and smoky flavor of the piquillo pepper lifts the olive to another level of flavor. Because this is a premium product, the olives are stuffed with a whole piece of pimiento pepper. Each of these olives from Sevilla has an actual slice of fire roasted piquillo pepper harvested from the famous Lodosa region next to the vineyards of La Rioja in Northern Spain. This is quite different from the hum drum pimento stuffed olives which have blanketed America for decades. In those, the producer grinds up scraps of peppers into a paste, and mechanically squirts some of the paste into the pitted olives.

These are the best olives I've ever tasted!! No comparison to other brands of olives available in the US.

While visiting Spain several years ago, we tasted olives that were fantastic. Not the overly brined variety that is common in the US. We spent years trying every imported olive we could find, but these were the real deal! We have hoarded them when we can find them. Simply the best olives. Period.
