The hue.

olive flava

The trendy olive color and actual fruit are always staples in my wardrobe and kitchen in some form or fashion.  Be it my fav comfy camouflage cargo pants or an entire jar stuffed with jalapenos I usually eat in one sitting, olive(s) are a part of “hue” I am.  Here are some of my olive savorites.  No. Savorites is not really a word, according to Webster’s anyway.  I just like the way it sounds.  Savory olives….Favorites…..Savorites.

Food should taste good.  Wouldn’t you agree?  Believe me when I say the entire product line from the chip company FOOD SHOULD TASTE GOOD doesn’t  just taste good. They all taste great!  Especially those citrusy lime tortilla ones.  I happened upon the brand and the sweet potato ones for the first time about two months ago at my neighborhood Starbucks. Being a marketer, I was naturally drawn to the awesome packaging and after the first bite I was like “Hello!  You are who you say you are and where have you been all of my licking cheetos, doritos and hot fries from my fingers life?” Now don’t get me wrong the chips that are not “naturally” delicious will always be a part of my snack repertoire because I’m a sucker for crazy flavored chips, (please let me know if you’ve seen a lemon pepper & blue cheese buffalo wing chip) but I am simply delighted I discovered the FOOD SHOULD TASTE GOOD brand.

I miss chips and  junk food like crazy (more than meat) when I’m on the Daniel Fast and today was definitely one of those days.  I was going through a Lay’s barbecue potato chip withdrawal. It didn’t last long because I remembered this simple green olive tapenade I’d been intending to make and I knew the perfect accompaniment…Those tasty little naturally delicious Black, Green, and Kalamata Olive chips from  the folks at FOOD SHOULD TASTE GOOD.
