Why is it that...

  1. ... some olives smell a bit... sewage-y??

    This has happened a couple of times. Must be the dressing or something. Yuck.

    It is because olives are grown in the pits of hell.
    They are the food of satan and all his minions.

    Olives are disgusting - the smell is God's way of warning you not to eat them!

    Shall we assume you don't like olives?
  5. I usually LOVE olives, but these are going in the bin, I'm afraid.

    Is it that obvious?!
  7. How long have you been keeping them in the fridge???!
    I love olives. Parmesan cheese on the other smells of vomit. A girl I know once ate some so she could make out she'd been sick and go home from work!
  8. They're new!

    No Bethannie not obvious at all, just a wild guess!
  10. I agree with Bethannie. I have tried and tried to like olives as for some strange reason I feel I ought to like them, but every attempt simply reinforces my dislike of them.

    They're off! I love olives prefer big fat crunchy green ones, the children prefer calamata but eat any very greedily. But there is little to compare with the sheer nastiness of a mushy bad one, yuck.
  12. A lot of curries look like sewage too
  13. I, too, can't stand olives. I can trace this hatred back to my 10th birthday, MANY moons ago! we had gone out as a family for a meal, and in amongst the salad garnish nestled some black olives. Now, me being a 10 yr old in the 60s, I'd never encountered olives before, so my Dad, bless his little cotton socks, offered me the 'grapes' from his plate. Never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I eagerly scoffed them.............................................................. I shall leave the rest to your imagination.[​IMG]
  14. I love the big green ones stuffed with chillies, bought some today and am trying to ration myself!! Think I might go and have another one, just to check that they are still fresh!!
  15. I didn't like olives unti lI went to Greece and had Kalamata olives. I still don't really like the ones with dressings on but Ive never come across "sewagey" ones!
