Musco Family Olive Co. Giveaway!!

Hi Friends!  It’s been a long time but please bear with us as we go through some growing pains.  ;-)

As we get going again, we thought we’d start with a giveaway.  We hope to have many more in the near future!  :)

For now, we’d like to introduce you to some delicious new olives from Musco Family Olive Co., the California-based producer of Early California and Pearls brand olives. Olives are fantastic for adding to many recipes and for snacking and grazing — great-tasting and all-natural, plus these are gluten-free, kosher and vegan.

The new offerings include:

  • Fresh Cured Olives – hand-picked, then cured immediately to retain their firm texture and natural color variations.
  • Reduced Salt Olives – large, black pitted olives with 25% less salt and pimiento stuffed manzanillas with 75% less salt than their traditional counterparts!

These olives are also great for easy summer entertaining — they’re a healthy alternative to salty chips, but still offer a nice crunch and satisfying hearty flavor.

They are offering a giveaway for our Healthy Mammas readers…a sampler box, complete with can opener and olive picks — and Free Product Coupons to three runner-ups!  


We will also offer extra entries for readers who :

“like” Early California and Pearls on Facebook: and

and/or comment with a serving suggestion, recipe or anecdotes on what you like about olives and how you enjoy them.

  • Giveaway open to US residents only
Thanks and good luck !!!!

About Jennifer

I am the mother of 2 beautiful children, Presley-7 and Cash-5 and married to an amazing husband and father, Todd. I have always thought of myself as a healthy person...I've always loved sports, working out and eating healthy. However, looking back, I've actually had a lot of unhealthy habits. I've tried every diet out there : Low fat (How did I think eating a box of fat free snackwells cookies was healthy?), Low carb (can you say fried pork skins GROSS)... as well as a long stint with disordered eating which started in college as a way to avoid those "freshman 15".
Well it wasn't until my 30s that I realized those kind of diets are just a quick fix, not a lifestyle. I think all foods can fit into a healthy diet as long as you practice moderation. I have found that I feel and look my best when I am eating mostly plant-based foods. Not to say I won't indulge in a filet every now and again... but I find that I crave meat less and less ! I have recently been fascinated with trying new vegetarian recipes...I NEVER thought I could give up chicken...used it eat it everyday, but I actually don't miss it at all.
I am trying to pass these healthy eating habits onto my children so they can avoid some of the diseases related to unhealthy diets.

Thanks for reading and hope you have a healthy day !!!!

    This is a great giveaway!

    For the longest time, I didn’t like olives AT ALL. Then someone told me if I ate eight olives in one sitting, I would learn to love them. Oddly enough, they were right. I now crave green olives, kalmata olives, black pearl olives, you name it! Maybe I’m just gullible, but whatever, olives are delicious.
