We eat absolutely loads of them weekly. With salads etc. Great with goats cheese and flat leaf parsley for breakfast and the stuffed ones are divine!! I put them in sarnies etc, in fact any opportunity.

Over 25 and yes I like them - all though I think I started eating them when I was about 20.

Got three olive trees in my garden and (it's autumn here) am about to harvest. Last year I got enough for a large jar full. Should get about three or four times that this year.

We need some votes from under-25s to help prove my theory that olives are an age-related delicacy.

They have become more appealing with the passage of time.

I really didn't like them at all when I was in my teens.

Over 25 and I love them. I think I liked them before I was 25 though, so make of that what you will!

Same here. Love them now, but quality can be variable. Sometimes you get bitter tasting, usually smaller ones, not so nice.

Didn't like them then, don't like them now. I find the way they look (i.e. completely unlike meat) quite off-putting.

Hate olives whatever the colour but oddly don't mind good olive oil and balsamic for dipping bread in.

I would add that my 10 year old son absolutely loves black ones.
