Delicious 100 Calorie Snack Pack Olives by Mario Camacho Foods

Today I would like to introduce you to the company called Mario Camacho Foods who makes delicious food products like bacon bits, capers, onions, fruit jams, Maraschino cherries, olive oil, peppers, pimientos, olives and various specialty products.

My Foodie Review: The great folks over at Mario Camacho Foods sent us 6 snack size bags of olives to review for all of you. What is great about these snack size bags is that they don't need refrigerated until after you open them. Each bag has only 100 calories so they are great for those of you who are watching your weight and are looking for portion control.

Here is some information about the 3 different varieties that we got to review along with our thoughts and opinions about each one.

The Seasoned with Thyme and Garlic Pitted Green Olives are packed loose without all of the juice! These green olives are pitted and lightly seasoned with Thyme and garlic which makes for a very tasty snack! They are low-carb, zero cholesterol and under 100 calories per pouch.

The Thyme Seasoned Kalamata Pitted Olives are also packed loose without all the juice! These black olives are pitted and lightly seasoned with Thyme which really gives them a nice flavorful taste. They are low-carb, zero cholesterol and under 100 calories per pouch.

The Chili and Thyme Pitted Seasoned Olives are packed loose without all the juice! These green olives are pitted and mildly seasoned Chili and Thyme which gives them a tiny bit of "heat". I think these are great to serve with Italian meals where garlic bread or garlic sauce is often served, these make a great tasty addition to the table. They are low-carb, zero cholesterol and under 100 calories per pouch.

My family loves olives and all 6 snack pouches of these delicious olives were quickly consumed. I packed them in their lunches that they take to work and they just loved that! My husband's favorites were the Thymed Kalamata Pitted Olives and the Chili & Thyme Pitted Seasoned Olives while my adult daughter and I loved the Thyme & Garlic Pitted Green Olives. All of them tested fresh and had a very nice flavor to them. I loved the convenience of having them in 100 calorie snack packs which are super easy to use!

These olive snack packs would be great for school lunches, workplace lunches, after-school snacks, backpacking, hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, boating, etc. since they don't need refrigeration until after you open them.

We loved these olives in the 100 calorie snack packs and we think your family would love them too! Thank you to Mario Camacho Foods for participating in this product review. Your olive products are fantastic!
