9. Olives that have been sitting in a bowl in the shop for days and you think they look nice but they taste faintly of disinfectant
8. Olives in brine that taste of brine
7. Olives overcooked and sliced on pizza
6. Black canned pitted olives
5. Assorted pitted olives
4. Black unpitted olives
3. Green unpitted olives
2. Those reddy-brown unpitted olives that they make oil out of and are really fiddly but so worth it
