A Salute to Olive Loaf


Who invented this stuff? I love it and am having it for lunch, it is so delightfully bizarre. I'm realatively certain that it contains meat and other....ummm....products......from not less than 16 animals(including the North American Badger). This is probably one of those discoveries that was found by accident. You know, like penicillin, somebody was probably researching a polio vaccine while enjoying a tasty snack of pimento-stuffed olives and the jar toppled into their experiment giving birth to what I call "The Olive Loaf Age." It would be a great candidate for one of those "true men of genius" Budweiser commercials........"Hats off to you Mr. Olive loaf inventor guy."

It had to be a German that invented it. Over there they scoop today's leftovers into a loaf pan with gelatin, then when the whole mess has set up, they slice it and serve it for breakfast the next day. You never know what you will see staring up at you that next morning. Can be frightening for those having weak constitution in the early hours.

I remember having it once as a kid and kind of liking it. I haven't had it since then and haven't thought about it much honestly.

Maybe I will get some on my next shopping trek. Thanks for the recommendation!
