Offering an adversary an olive branch usually leads to peace, unless you broke it off his or her prizing-winning olive tree, in which case it will lead to a ruthless pit-spitting battle. Stock up on a safer choice of olive offerings with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and more at the Olive Cart, redeemable online or at the storefront on Rivertown Parkway. The Olive Cart is a purveyor of palate-pleasing flavored olive oils, balsamic vinegars imported from Italy as well as an assortment of olive products. Great for cooks or owls looking to get out of a Tootsie Pop-chomping rut, the Olive Cart's carefully selected olive oils and products enhance culinary experiences with their taste blessings and health benefits. Flavored balsamics ($12) include varieties such as aged cherry, chocolate, cinnamon pear, and red apple, while olive oils ($12) flirt intriguingly with tastes such as hot pepper, basil, garlic, Tuscan herb, blood orange, and sundried tomato. Other specialties include olive oil chips ($4) and balsamic glazes ($9), including cherry Chianti, peach Chablis, and strawberry zinfandel. Patrons can also head straight to the flavor source with a jar of olives ($14), available dried or stuffed with garlic, blue cheese, or jalapenos.
