Flavor Name: Green OliveSize: 3.5-Ounce (Pack of 6) Verified Purchase
Ohhhhh.... this is fabulous. There's a recipe inside the wrapper for some sort of lovely-looking rice salad dish using this tapenade, but we may never get to it -- because the tapenade is so delightful all by itself with just crackers or crusty fresh bread. I love it with the LU Herbes De Provence Flatbread Crackers, 4.25-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6). Great to have both the tapenade and the crackers in the house for an instant appetizer when guests drop by unexpectedly for a meal or a drink. These little green jars are almost worth their weight in gold (okay, that's an exaggeration, but not by much), and you'll be very glad to have them on your shelf. Beware: they won't last long!

Shelf-stable until opened; then refrigerate if you're lucky enough to have any leftovers. :) Caution: quite salty, because of the olives -- not appropriate for people medically advised to drastically reduce sodium, but probably acceptable in moderation for most people in combination with something such as the recommended flatbread crackers, which will help offset the salty olives and make the average sodium in the combined appetizer more reasonable.

Flavor Name: Kalamata OliveSize: 3.5-Ounce (Pack of 6)
Update on 12/21/2011: My review below was based on what I purchased, which was altogether a different product than the one now listed.
..........................................................

When I figured cost per ounce, the accountant in me had to order this product. Also, I was intrigued by the mix of coriander, lemon juice, basil and garlic. I know my olives and tested this next to a kalamata olive spread containing capers, garlic and oregano. I wanted so badly for this product to withstand the taste test.

I'm sorry to say the deal is not good. I'm afraid you'll be immediately disappointed with this product. I'd not serve it to a Spaniard, Greek or North African (they know olives). The main ingredient in Gaea Green Olive Tapenade is an olive variety that is definitely not a table olive. There are many types and most make great table olives. You can see that under the Wikipedia entry for "olive." The olive used in this tapenade should be used for olive oil and fuel (the solid parts discarded from in oil production are often literally used as fuel).

The major pizza chains do not use this type of olive on pizza. A stand-alone pizzeria in a Chicago neighborhood would be the subject of the local police blotter if it tried serving this type of olive on pizza. The addition of coriander, lemon juice and garlic did not compensate. By definition, a tapenade is supposed to use table olives. This is an instance where things that appear too good to be true are just that.

Flavor Name: Kalamata OliveSize: 3.5-Ounce (Pack of 6) Verified Purchase
Edit: I had to take this down to one star. This product just isn't worth it. We only got to consume 5 of the 6 jars we purchased, due to the opened jar.

We're just finishing the 4th of 5, and I had to go and delete this off of our subscribe and save. I'm not sure if the problem is inconsistency, or if we just had enough, but this last jar tastes tinny. It has a metallic taste, even when mixed in with cream cheese, but it is more noticeable when the tapenade is eaten by itself on a cracker.

I'm going to throw the last jar away, and chalk this up to experience. This is just not good tapenade... you can find much better, for a lower price, in a grocery store. (Or, make your own!)

Below is my previous review, which I'm leaving up... who knows! Someone may actually prefer a metallic taste in their olives!

This olive tapenade has a good, but mild flavor. Personally, I could use a little more garlic! I've mixed it with some goat cheese and another occasion with cream cheese, both were very good spreads for crackers!

As a sandwich spread it works well and adds a nice unexpected flavor.

One of our jars was opened and leaking when we got the package, although I don't know if this is an ongoing problem... we'll see with the next shipment!

This olive tapenade was very different, and very good! It is quite strong, so you will need to mix it with cream cheese or sour cream for a dip or something, but goes well on pasta or over grilled chicken. Will buy again!

Flavor Name: Smoked EggplantSize: 3.5-Ounce (Pack of 6) Verified Purchase
I bought three tapenades by Cat Cora, the eggplant, the tomato and the olive. All are yummy but you have to keep in mind that they are only 3.5 oz. That is a leeetlte tiny jar. It looks much bigger in the photo.

Flavor Name: Sundried TomatoesSize: 3.5-Ounce (Pack of 6) Verified Purchase
This stuff is great! Terrific flavor, great texture, and oh so many uses.

It's wonderful on crackers, bruschetta, pita chips, etc. I've also used it as a base for goat-cheese pizzas.

The jars are on the small side -- 3 1/2 oz -- about 1/2 Cup -- but that's OK for me. I don't usually use that much at one time (unless I'm doing pizza), so a jar can last awhile.

I can't find this locally. None of my local markets carry it -- they carry another type of sundried tomato "pesto"-type sauce, but this stuff is SO much better. So I'll continue to order it online as long as it's available.

Flavor Name: Smoked EggplantSize: 3.5-Ounce (Pack of 6) Verified Purchase
This dip came nicely packaged, and tastes wonderful. I ate an entire jar with some pita chips and had to stop myself from popping open another one the same day. It has a nice smoky flavor, and actually wasn't too bad when paired with chive and onion cream cheese either. My only complaint has already been said by others before me, but I do wish the jars were a little bigger. However, they clean out very nicely and can be repurposed for other things, such as perhaps storing corn starch, or other spices that you'd rather scoop rather than shake as I do.
This dip is also good as a topping over a small single serving of pasta, with shrimp sauteed in garlic. All and all, this smoked eggplant dip is very versatile, and very good, I would definitely recommend you buy it and give it a try for yourself.
