pimento flavored jelly beans in the olives, really now....
see that little red thing on the counter? that is a pimento like substance that this food processor uses to stuff the olives, instead of just using real pimentos like we all expect to be in the olives.
I know food scientists and manufacturers are always looking for ways to cut costs but this one shocked me.
I don't like olives but Jeff does, and when I showed him this, he decided to throw them away and just stick with "real olives" in the future
This jar was purchased at Aldis but I would guess they are not the sole seller of fake pimentos.
So, read your food labels, on everything! Or you won't be eating what you think you are eating.
