Olive The Senses #CruiseExcursion Recap 2015 (Vlog)

Selena Thinking Out Loud had the opportunity to learn more about olive oils and balsamic vinegars during the Olive the Senses Princess Cruise Excursion this past September. Located in Victoria, British Columbia, this store, Olive the Senses, is packed with unique style and a tasting experience that will keep you coming back for more. 

Olive the Senses Cruise Excursion Recap
While tasting the different olive oils and balsamic vinegars, I learned that they bottle each of their products right there in-store. Each canister shares in-depth details about what you will expect, if you tasted a particular oil or balsamic. 

Personally, I am an olive oil lover. I cook with it all the time and love the flavor that it brings to my meals. By visiting this store, it has broadened my insights even more. As for balsamic vinegar, I knew some things about it, and mostly use it on salads. However, by trying the Olive the Senses Apricot White Balsamic Vinegar, I learned that not all balsamic is dark. The White Balsamic Vinegar has a pleasantly-sweet, apricot taste, but packs a lot of punch on my salads. It doesn't take a lot, to go a long way in flavor.

Olive the Senses - Liquid Nitrogen Olive Oil Gelato with Vegan Caviar Dessert

While you're tasting their large variety of oils and balsamic, make sure to try their Liquid Nitrogen Olive Oil Gelato with Vegan Caviar. You will be hooked instantly! It comes in a nice tasty shell, very refreshing, and again expands your mind into the power of olive oil and what you can do with it. My particular batch was prepared with an orange-flavored olive oil!

If you want to travel off the beaten path, while in their store, I would recommend browsing their plethora of recipe books. You will have plenty of ideas, when hosting your next dinner party, holiday party, or office potluck. And, don't forget to pick up some of their spreads too. One of my favorites was the Parmesan-Asiago Spread. This spread can be used on vegetables, crackers, or your favorite breads. It has plenty of bold flavors and was definitely made with lots of love! I'm looking forward to purchasing more. To purchase a jar of the Parmesan-Asiago Spread, click here to visit Olive the Senses online store.

I am very passionate about fighting world hunger. I participated in a dollar a day food challenge a couple of years ago and experienced how it felt to go through one week with limited resources for food. It made me even more grateful for what I have. 

That's why the Eat. Feed. Love. website is so special. 

Every time you purchase a product from, no matter how big or small, they will commit to feeding a person in need. It's that simple. 

So, spread the word and help feed someone in need today!
