The Best Olive Spoons and Forks

Have you ever had a jar of olives, pickles, or another brine-encased item, and you really wanted to dish them out for use on a charcuterie plate or just for a snack? But there’s really no good way to get them out of the jar, right? You don’t want to use your fingers. Normal forks and spoons are just clumsy and can even damage the smooth appearance of the food. Thankfully, someone thought of olive spoons, an easy way to retrieve any of your favorite pickled snacks from the bottom of a jar. Olive spoons are usually slotted or have prongs, and they have particularly long handles for simply use in any size jar. Check out our four favorites when it comes to this handy tool. You might just decide you need one now!
