Tried Boars Head for the first time last week, expected a premium product.
Didn't get it, would much rather have a cheap one like Kretchsmar or Hummel Bros.

So for all you classy olive loaf lovers out there - whats your favorite?

I don't like Olive Loaf, but I do like P&P. I think Kretchsmar is the best I've had.

About the only brand I can find here is Oscar Meyer. In the base Commissary, I can get Boar's Head and other premium brands in the deli, though. I'm not overly particular, so the Oscar is what I usually get. Olive loaf is a once in a while thing. I'll usually opt for braunsweiger, cotto salami, or smoked turkey when I want a change from ham.

Best olive loaf is like most conservative democrat. There might be a best, but on a scale of 1-10 its still a 2.

OP - just curious, what do you do with it? Not being a smartass, I just have never tried it.

Sammiches?

Ritz cracker topping?

Trying to expand my culinary knowledge - thanks.


I like dogs more than I like most people.

Mostly sandwiches.

Its basically bologna with green olives mixed in for a little kick. It looks weird (OK, real weird), but if you like green olives you'll probably like it.

I usually throw a few or more slices on good sliced white bread with American cheese. No mustard or anything, although it is good with mayo & tomato IMO. I also find that its good with the girlfriends Arnold Oat Nut bread too.

We did get some thick cut one time and made them into cracker sized pieces. Real good on a Ritz.

Another oddball deli item out there is the Hormel pepperoni cheese. Makes a dynamite grilled cheese.
Or throw some on a turkey sandwich, or on crackers, whatever. Everyone who tries it loves it. Yet its very hard to find lately.

You probably wouldn't like my scrambled eggs with diced green olives and sliced mushrooms then.🙂

What about Head Cheese?

...or Souse?

...or sliced Haggis?

Sliced Leprechaun is also good, though the last package I had was a bit too greasy and gamey - some of those Leprechauns are pretty nasty..

Come to think of it, I've never had olive loaf from one of those dicey looking pre-packaged deals.
I'm guessing thats how most people got theirs?
Probably not the best way to give it a try....

Pimento cheese is disgusting. Looks like dog vomit. Something that only farty old egg salad eatin mfers would enjoy. 🤮




But I’ll open a can of california black olives and eat all of them as a meal.

Okay. Pimento cheese can be gross.....sometimes.

Something called Palmetto cheese is spectacular.


Black olives that are whole and uncooked are great.

Slided or cooked.......gross.

Hard to find and should be sliced thin. Kretchmer, Ekrich and Oscar Mayer is all I have been able to get lately. When I was young we used to get Scott Peterson which I think was part of Hormel. It was the best. I just eat it as a sandwich on white bread. Share it with the dogs also. Not something I eat often but sometimes it is great as is pickle and pimento loaf. Ham, roast beef, corned beef or real pastrammi are the best.
