Irini Greek Olives

Hi does anyone know where to find Irini greek olives? they are large green olives with a beautiful buttery taste, pit in them. I used to be able to find them at superstore but haven't found them lately.

  1. Try the Italian Store at Deerfoot and McKnight. They have a large selection.

    5140 Skyline Way NE, Calgary, AB T2E 6V1, CA

    1. Or you could try Kalamata Grocery Store on 11th St SW. Great selection of olives, feta and other assorted goodies.

      1. I too used to buy those huge jars of Irini olives at Superstore. Sooo good, and a massive jar for $10. Haven't seen them there for awhile. I bought some at Kalamata, smaller and more expensive, but also called Irini. The charming older gent with the white hair explained that Irini is the biggest exporter, so it is a brand name, not the olive. They were still okay, but not the big, fruity and buttery ones I think we both enjoyed.
