More Goodies To Try

I feel very honored every time a company reaches out to me, asking me to review their products. And I LOVE testing and trying out all these new products too. So, please, keep them coming. I will gladly try them all out for you 🙂

Yesterday, I received a goodie package in the mail from Beyond The Olive located in Pasadena, California. Beyond The Olive is owned and operated by Lisa Grabow. I spoke to her and thanked her for my fabulous goodie package, and you can just tell from talking to her that she takes great pride in her olive oils, vinegars, and all of her products. I love her enthusiasm. Not only do I love supporting small businesses, but I especially love supporting small businesses from my hometown of Pasadena. WHOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!!! Go Pasadena!!!!!! 🙂

Beyond The Olive is a Southern California customer favorite and recognized as a premier reliable source for quality California Extra Virgin Olive Oil, vinegar and other delectable products. With A Gold Medal at last year’s New York International Olive Oil Competition, the only North American Olive Oil to win a medal at Toronto’s International Olive Oil Competition, 6  consecutive wins as Best Specialty Food Store, four medals at the Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition and being named “One of the 10 best places in the World to buy EVOO”, customers have grown to love and trust this local, family business, founded in 2009. As part of the Los Angeles artisan food movement [they] strive to not only contribute exceptional products, but also support other local food innovators. [Their] values are simple: Integrity in everything [they] do, provide quality products and service with commitment to community, and build strong relationships.”

My goodie package contained all kinds of fun stuff. There was a jar of Green Olive Tapenade, a jar of Artichoke and Olive Tapenade, and 4 small sample bottles of fun, unique olive oil and balsamic vinegars, including a Barrel Aged Fig Balsamic Vinegar, Jalapeno Garlic Olive Oil, Smoked California Olive Oil and a fun Pineapple White Balsamic Vinegar. Don’t those all sound fun and exciting? I am already coming up with some great recipes that highlights all these fun flavors. Lisa even sent me the recipe of the month to try as well. It is for Orange Olive Oil Cupcakes. Yum! And you know I will definitely try that one out very soon.

The Beyond The Olive products are sold in many different areas and states, with more and more locations being added all the time. Next time you are in Pasadena, go check them out and give them a taste. But if you are not in Pasadena, give them a call at 626-844-3866 (EVOO) or you can contact them either online at INFO@BEYONDTHEOLIVE.COM.

Thank you Lisa for such a fabulous, fun gift. You know I am going to have a great time trying out all these fantastic items. I can hardly wait. In fact, I think I will be surprising you all with something tomorrow. 🙂

Enjoy the day. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
