Recently, I came across the Musco Family Olive Co. which is a California based company that makes Early California and Pearls olives.
Three generations ago, Founder Nicolo Musco brought his ambition and passion for olives from the groves of Italy to sunny California. Today the Musco Family Olive Co. remains a thriving family business and is the leading branded retail supplier of table olives in America. I was Blessed to receive a Musco Family Olive Co. Sampler for review. Musco Family Olive Co. has not one but two brands of olives and this sampler contains both of their products.
Many times, reduced sodium products are not very tasty and I was a bit worried that these olives would not taste good. Boy, was I wrong! They are awesome. I tried the Pearls reduced sodium pimiento stuffed olives. These have 75% less sodium than the traditional olives. One serving contains 70 milligrams of sodium which is not bad at all.
These tasted slightly different than the regular sodium-filled olives but still had that salty flavor. I will definitely be buying these again and will no longer be buying regular olives
In addition to Musco-branded olive picks, napkins and can opener, the package contained two of each of the following (one Early California and one Pearls): Fresh Cured Green Ripe Medium Pitted California Natural Style Olives, Reduced Salt Large Pitted California Ripe Olives and Reduced Salt Pimiento Stuffed Manzanilla Olives. The reduced salt varieties contain a whopping 75% less sodium than their conventional counterparts!
