Lemon olive

The supermarket is still sold out of prunes, and the rest of the brands taste like they've been soaked in some fermentation-like pickling flavour. So I looked the next column over in the rack, and found these lemon olive things.

I'm not sure what the "fresh squeezed liquid" on the packet has to do with anything.

Where do all the christmas tree shaped, pine scented, car fresheners go when they've been hanging from the rear view mirror so long that they've dried out and cracked? If someone told me they were ground into a pulp, rolled out and wrapped around olive stones, and this was the result I wouldn't be surprised. They have a slight hint of lemon, but it's the flavour of artificial lemon, not real lemon.

Do not buy again.
