So, something went very badly wrong with me today and I bought two packs of these. Yes, Chilli chocolate olives is precisely what it says on the pack.

You see, I like all three of these things. Love them in fac, and chilli liqourice is lovely, as are chilli olives.

But I'm really not sure about the combination. I'm scared. Help.

Err... Strangely addictive. Not as gross as I thought they'd be, but not something I'm going to go out of my way to find. It just tasted like chocolate covered bacon.

Tried the olives yet? I'm having trouble picturing the licorice in them. Green or black olives?

They're black. Dried, it seems. The ingredients are
Olive (79.97%), sugar (12%), salt (6%) Chilli Powder (1%) Liqourice powder (1%) artificial sweetener (0.02%) preservatives (0.01%)

The package also specifies 'edible'.

edit: I just tried one. They're- odd, but good. The olive has been dried, and the stone is still in, and they're sweet and hot.

Texture wise they're kind of like dried dates? They're much sweeter than I expected too.

Hmm. I'll finish the packs I bought but I'm not sure I'll buy them again.

Interesting. I'll try anything once.

The worst thing I ever tried was a chocolate covered pretzel.

First a very sweet chocolate, then a mouthful of salt. Yuck!

Ugh. Chocolate and salt do not go well together.

Nor do coffee and salt...

A few times I've made the mistake of buying a coffee, then going to McDonalds and getting some fries. It's a very weird taste combination... Not something I'd recommend.

Err....not sure about that one. Maybe if they could keep the chips from getting soggy I'd like it better

Maybe if you dip the chip into a fondue pot of melted chocolate? Hmmm, I don't know.

Chocolate covered cashews are really good.

Did you know black olives are just mature green olives? I did not know that until I looked it up. I wonder why green olives are a lot saltier than black ones? Never had a dried olive. Do they look like raisins? I bet dried black olives look like...hmmm, I won't say it.

Chris P

Raisins?

My guess is that the black olives have more natural sugars or fewer bitter components, similar to mature versus green apples. And no, I didn't know that about olives.

You know, one of my favorite things is to dip VERY salty McDonalds fries into a McDonalds chocolate shake. It only works with McDonalds, not Wendy's or anyone else's.

For the record,

The potato chips don't get soggy at all - The chocolate *hardens* the chips and you've got yourself a delicious bite of salty/chocolately delight :)

I love a good chocolate bar with sea salt (Lindt makes a fabulous one.) Their dark chocolate and chili (red chili pepper)bar is also very tasty.

I've called my last 2 dogs "poppadum". It started out as "puppy" and just went from there.

I don't even know what a poppadum is, come to think of it... I just know the word.

Poppodums are crispy indian snacks. Like big crisps.

In indian restaurants they fry them in ghee and serve them up so hot they burn the fingers and they're SO. GOOD. but I can;t quite get the temperatures in the pan at home, so I spray them with oil and put them in the microwave.
