I had been saving this small package of pit-free, red pimento-stuffed green (chocolate) olives for today, Day #4 of Chocolate and Olive Theme Week.
I will probably offer the rest of these realistic-looking olives to unsuspecting family members and friends. Or, perhaps I could melt them down and make chocolate olive fondue.
Note: The chocolate olive market may have become saturated in a down economy. Or maybe fewer people are drinking variations on a chocolate martini? I tried to order some "Cholives" from a small company in Wisconsin; however, sadly, I found out this company closed down last month (July 2010).
