Different but delicious. Try them!
2 other reviews posted for these olives were very critical. It just goes to show how palates differ. Maybe I do not have a great palate but I liked the jar I bought. I have just ordered another jar. Yes, they are definitely pickled in a different brine, but I found it mellow and soft, and not at all unpleasant and olives were not mushy. Now I also love other olives which are pickled in a much sharper and acidic brine; we olive fans are used to eating those, and I would use the sharp type with gin rather than the Nocellara. If other Tesco customers were brave and give these a try, they may well find that they like them.
Waste of Money
Awful, should be Tesco's worst Nocellara olives, wish I had read the reviews.
Very soft almost mushy flesh and very little taste, disappointing.
Not Tesco’s Finest, probably Tesco’s worst
Bland, soggy. Not Tesco’s finest, not worth buying
mushy and bland :/

Very disappointed with these olives. Lacking in flavour and texture very soft and squishy.
No taste! Hey Tesco Snap out of it! Save your mone

Buy Jamie Oliver's instead
Tesco offer 2 brands of Nocellara olives: Tesco Finest and Jamie Oliver's. Jamie's are firm, taste fantastic and I highly recommend them. Tesco's "Finest" definitely don't live up to their name. Tasteless, with an unpleasant over-soft texture, we had to throw them away. They were not off, this is how they are. So, choose Jamie Olivers, which win hands down.
I would never buy these again - awful taste very weird and chemical tasting not natural tasting at all, so they just got thrown away.
