As a frequent Hyde Park Spicy Olive shopper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar are a staple at The Jenkins’ residence. I appreciate the health benefits both products offer. From decreases in high blood pressure, reduced inflammation and a natural appetite suppressor, these products assist in good health. Their products taste fantastic and the packaging is sleek!

She graciously explained the products within the store as well as detailed the olive oil and vinegar being used in the cooking demo! She encouraged us to sample the products around the store, and reminded us that they receive new seasonal products every February and September!
