Where to buy blue-cheese stuffed olives?

I'm in the mood for a decadent martini. Does anyone know where I might find blue-cheese stuffed olives on the west side? Didn't have any luck in the regular old grocery store.

  1. I'm sure I got some at Trader Joe's. Not sure I liked em that much but then I wasn't putting em in drinks.

      The ones in the jar certainly aren't worth getting. I wasn't that big on the ones they had in the fridge case either.

    2. I think I saw some when I was at Bay Cities recently. Haven't tried them before, though.

      1. I bought some gorgonzola-stuffed olives at the Gelsons in Encino (in their mix-and-match olive section). I assume that some of the other Gelsons have them also. I'm not a big fan, but my parents are.

        1. Have you tried Whole Foods? They have a large olive bar. I'm sure they have them.

            Ditto to the Whole Foods suggestion, I've seen those particular olives at their olive bar. And if you're close enough, check out the ginormous new Whole Foods on Sepulveda and Rosecrans.

          2. The olive booth at our local Long Beach (Alamitos Bay) farmer's market has them every Sunday.

                I don't remember. I'll check it out next Sunday and let you know. Whoever it is, he offers a great selection of olives and pickled goodies.
