I remember growing up and my Mom taking me to this delicious Italian Deli in Tempe somewhere. She would always buy the juciest Italian olives! My mouth waters at the thought of them today. My Italian heritage must be behind my obsession with them! I would have to say they are by far my favorite snack. Luckily I have Sprouts Farmers Market across the street, but even these olives dont compare. What would be better than having my own olive tree? Yum!
