Anchovy stuffed olives are far and away the most popular olives at La Tienda. We can hardly keep them on our shelf! The olive and anchovy combination creates a perfect balance of flavor.

Served chilled with a cool drink, they evoke memories of warm summer nights of Andalucia, sitting outside enjoying tapas. Even among our friends who don't particularly like anchovies, they have become a favorite!

We were impressed by the freshness of the anchovy stuffed olives prepared by a local olive company in Alicante - a traditional port on the Costa Blanca.

They achieve a perfect balance between the flavor of fresh salted anchovies and extra large Andalucian manzanilla olives.

When we dropped by to see how they were created, we saw the workers grinding freshly cured anchovy fillets, stuffing them into the awaiting olives, and immediately flash-pasteurizing them.

We have never tried an olive so delicious, so we placed an order on the spot.

This premium grade Peregrino anchovy stuffed olive is excellent for tapas or hors d'oeuvres; they can also add a touch of the ocean to a garden salad. Serve chilled to enjoy them at their very best.

----------

Prácticamente por goleada, las aceitunas rellenas de anchoa son las más populares en La Tienda. ¡Casi no podemos dejarlas en los estantes! Nos quedamos impresionados con la frescura de la aceituna rellena de anchoa preparada por una empresa aceitunera local en Alicante, un puerto de pesca tradicional de la Costa Blanca española.

Nos pasamos a ver cómo lo hacían. En la mesa había una porción de filetillos de anchoa recién curados que estaban machacando ante nuestros ojos, metiendo en las aceitunas, y pasteurizando inmediatamente. No se nos ocurrió una manera mejor de tener aceitunas con anchoa para ustedes, así que importamos unas cuantas. Hay un equilibrio perfecto entre el sabor distintivo de la anchoa y el rico sabor de la aceituna. Las aceitunas verdes rellenas de anchoas son refrescantes y deliciosas. Excelentes para tapas o aperitivos, las aceitunas rellenas de anchoa pueden añadir también un toque el océano a una ensalada verde. Están en estado óptimo si se sirven frías.

  • Rufus Fuscus - State College, PA  
    "The flavor and texture are fine, but the maker has added MSG to enhance the flavor, which is a real issue. Not only is MSG tremendously unhealthy, but also many people are allergic to it. There are other brands without MSG, so La Tienda shoudl switch providers."
  • Maria B - Seaside  
    "Packed with the flavor of the Spanish seacoast. I bet you can't eat just one."
  • Angie - Hamilton  
    "This will be the 2nd time that I'm ordering this product: I ran out of the 4 tins that I ordered not long ago!! Excellent flavor, and a VERY reasonable price. I agree with a previous reviewer: they are exceptional in a martini!! :) They give just the right hint of the 'extraordinary' to the drink. My friends & family love them :) Exceptional flavor & value. Thank you, La Tienda, for bringing this product to us. "

    "These are a must taste for anyone with a love for olives, I ordered them once to try and to date have repeated them with every order. "
  • Peter Hofer - McCormick  
    "These stuffed Olives are a great product. It would be great if they came in plastic or glass jars, rather than in cans. Once opened, the can causes an undesired aftertaste, absent when glass-jars (or Plastic), are used. La Tienda Team: We thank you for your comments, Peter. We recommend that the olives be stored in another container once they are opened. Kind regards."

    "Fantastic! These tasty aceitunas bring me back home to Spain. They're an essential part of any tapas meal that we are part of :)"
  • addictedtoolives - milwaukee, Wisconsin  
    "Not bad but they still taste like canned/bottled olives. I was hoping to like them more but they don't have the fresh crunch I am now used to from the fresh olives I get at my local WF. The anchovies provide a unique flavor twist and are somewhat mild. I liked them but will probably not buy again."
  • Esther J - Eagan, Minnesota  
    "I put these out at parties without telling anyone there are anchovies in them. Without exception I am asked what is in them, and people encourage others to "try these!". The surprised look on people's faces when I say they are stuffed with anchovy is pretty much standard. Then they ask where to buy them! I have tried none better, and have created many fans of anchovy stuffed olives with these exceptional olives. Spanish olive lovers, you will not be disappointed!"
  • JimmyC - Boerne, Texas  
    "Some of the best green olives I have ever had. The anchovy filling is small and mild so it doesn't over-power the olive. They are not too salty either. I ate almost an entire can within an hour or so. Now I understand why they come in a 2-pack. "
  • Marilyn McGhee - Tallahassee, Florida  
    "These Anchovy Stuffed Olives were exceptional. They had just the right balance of saltiness. It was hard to each just one or two, so you need tomake sure you order several cans if you are entertaining. "
  • Eric - Dresher, Pennsylvania  
    "I love these olives. They have a distinctly different taste from the usual American green olives - much milder. Don't let the "anchovy" part scare you away... it's not a dominant part of the taste. I go through these so quickly that I've also purchased the bigger cans of anchovy stuffed olives from La Tienda, which are equally excellent."

    "Excellent olives, one of the things I've missed the most since I left Spain!"
  • Angela  
    "These were not terrible and my 2-year-old niece loved them, but they were not my favorite. Might have been better if there were actual chunks of pickled fish rather than just weird fishy-tasting anchovy "paste"."
  • Evangeline  
    "the perfect bite!"
  • KK from Orlando FL  
    "I buy these as a gift item. Mom says the olives from Spain are the best, and especially loves these. I recently sent them to my uncle, who agrees."

  • CJ  
    "This tastes NOTHING like I had expected. Rich, salty but not overly salty. It almost melts in your mouth. My new favorite olive combo!"
