TRACY, Calif. — Musco Family Olive Co., a California-based supplier of table olives, introduced on Friday a new single-serve snack cup filled with black, pitted olives.
The Pearls Olives to Go cups are liquid-free and come ready-to-snack in easy-open cups. Each package contains four 1.2 oz. cups — similar to ubiquitous fruit snack cups. Each cup contains 10 large olives and carries only 40 calories, an ideal portion for both kids and adults, the company stated.
Olives to Go are available now on grocers' retail shelves with other olive products. The suggested retail price is $2.99-$3.49/4-1.2 oz. cups. Olives to Go are gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, cholesterol-free, GMO-free and vegan. The company also notes that olives are a good source of monounsaturated fat, which in studies has demonstrated to lower bad (LDL) cholesterol.
To celebrate the launch of the new snack cups, Pearls Olives is running a fall "Fun at Your Fingertips" photo contest through its Facebook page. Prizes include a MacBook Air, two iPads, three $100 app gift cards, or a year's worth of Pearls Olives to Go. More details can be found on the company's Facebook page.
