Love is in the air, and everything is better with a little drizzle from The Tubby Olive! Here are a few of our favorite products for a happy Valentine’s Day. From our decadent Dark Chocolate Balsamic and Cara Cara Orange Vanilla White Balsamic, to our spicy, whole pepper-fused Cayenne Chili Olive Oil, each is unique and easy to fall in love with. Just like your Valentine!

Dark Chocolate Balsamic

Skip the basic box of candy this year! Rich, thick, and resounding with the complexity of three different chocolates, our Dark Chocolate Balsamic is the perfect treat for someone special. When preparing a romantic dinner for two, pair the main course with an impressive salad of arugula, fresh berries, juicy mandarin orange segments, sliced almonds, and a homemade Chocolate Balsamic Vinaigrette. The deep flavor of this beloved balsamic is also delightful for desserts. Drizzle it atop vanilla ice cream or gelato with macerated strawberries or raspberries, or try this scrumptious recipe for Black Cherry Chocolate Chunk Bread Pudding, featuring Dark Chocolate Balsamic, with a generous dollop of whipped cream.

Cara Cara Orange Vanilla White Balsamic

If you want to skip dinner and go straight to dessert, try our Cara Cara Orange Vanilla White Balsamic. It is simply splendid with chocolate, fruit salad, in sparkling water and mixed drinks, or drizzled over yogurt and vanilla ice cream. We also recommend whipping up this fabulous Balsamic Bananas Foster recipe to share with your Valentine! This confectionery white balsamic condimento is made from creamy, sultry Madagascar Vanilla and bright, fruity Cara Cara Orange. Aged up to 12 years in Modena, Italy, it also pairs well with Roasted Walnut Oil, naturally-infused Butter Olive Oil, or mild traditional oils.

Cayenne Chili Olive Oil

Our Cayenne Chili Olive Oil is a delicious way to turn up the heat! This product is made from whole, red cayenne peppers crushed with early green Frantoio olives, resulting in a delightful aroma and a lovely, naturally-derived red color for Valentine’s Day. Spicy and flavorful, with notes of rich, ripe pepper and underlying green vegetal olives, this premium oil pairs beautifully with our Golden Pineapple White Balsamic or Pomegranate Dark Balsamic in marinades and dipping sauces. It can also be used as a condiment to kick up roasted vegetables and potatoes.
