The Musco Family Olive Company built the name brand we all know as Pearl Olives. It's a privately held family business and is the leading supplier of table olives in America. Isn't that incredible? Started by Nicolo Musco he worked in his family's merchant business to sell olives, cheese and other foods from village to village all from his donkey-driven cart. In 1922, he moved from Italy to New York and started his own Italian food distributorship. He then moved from New York to Northern California and started his dream to create olive oil and olives. In 1960, he passed the business onto his two sons Nicholas and Damian and the business grew quickly. In 1987, Nicholas' son Felix followed in his father's (and grandfather's) footsteps and continued the family business. I love when a company has family roots like this! It shows the care and love that goes into the product. Read more about their company history here.
I tried four different types of olives - Black Pitted, Pimento Stuffed, Sliced Black Olives, and Kalamata Olives. THESE WERE SO GOOD! Both my mom and my older brother enjoyed them! For me personally, I enjoyed the pimento and the kalamata olives the most. These tasted fresh and was the perfect amount for me! My mom also had the unique idea of tossing the sliced black olives into soup! I tried that with a black bean soup I brought with me to lunch and it was a great addition. I would say these snack packs are kid AND grown-up friendly.
So, for a 4-pack, expect to pay about $3.50 or so in your local grocery store. I think this is a fantastic deal for a lunch time snack! It's also a much better choice than having chips or crackers during lunch.
