How many olives would you say it would be acceptable to eat in one sitting?


#1

25, I reckon


#2

olives are shit


#3

Bloody love an olive. But 25 seems like too many. I’d go with around 8-10?


#4

was EXACTLY what i was going to post when i saw the thread title

got a toastie from Eat the other day and it had olives in it, was so disappointed. doubly so as i was on the phone with mrs_t_england when i was picking it up off the shelf, read out the ingredients which included olives and somehow didn’t register that thois meant it’d have olives in it.


#5

All the olives


#6

we really need a dislike button


#7

25 seems quite a lot, 10-15 i reckon


#8

8 olives!? In one sitting. No way. Get stuck in. 25+ is perfectly acceptable in a snacking scenario.


#9

Also it depends on the size of the olives. Those small tinned ones I could eat 25 of easily. 25 Gordals? Abso-certainly not.


#10

I reckon I could eat 25 small olives in one mouthful nevermind sitting


#11

I’m thinking of nicely marinated, decent-sized olives. 8-10 large olives would be ideal. Any more and I’d begin to feel remorseful.


#12

Half a jar


#14

Probably around 10-15 for me.
30+ if they’re the sicilian kind


#15

Word for word. Like putting greasy salty bollox in your mouth.


#16

2 jars of the grim cheap tescos stuff while downing shots of vodka and wondering where it all went wrong


#17

I love the little small hazel ones you get in Liguria and the south of France. 25 is a reasonable amount for those. Also because they tend to be gently marinated tasting more like olive oil than brine


#18

As many olives as there are available, any variety, any flavouring


#19

You’re not alone.

(Although you fucking should be)

Those little olives you get in restaurants and stuff - probably 12

Big queen olives - can only really eat 3 max but they’re fucking good.
