These are the olives I buy most frequently because everywhere I shop, they carry them. I like the small tin, and clearly I like the fact that they're sliced already in the tin. I don't think these are the best sliced olives I've ever tasted from a supermarket. Unico has a fabulous sliced olive tin that tastes more authentic and less soft. The olive brine that these Pearl olives sit in whilst in the tin almost makes them a slight bit mushy and has a distinct flavor to it that is t my most favorite. They're ok, but not on the top of my list.
