Come with me to The Tubby Olive, a unique little shop in Bucks County, PA. 
Here you'll find a seemingly endless variety of olive oils and vinegars, 
sure to encourage the culinary talents in each of us. They're on tap, ready for you to sample. 
Be prepared to "please your palate and tantalize your tastebuds"!

It's located on charming State Street, in the quaint borough of Newtown. 
So cozy! You're welcomed with the warm, rich tones of Tuscany.

A center island provides a tasting station so that you can try before you purchase. 
Receive suggestions from a friendly, well-educated staff.

Delightful vignettes like this vintage skirted sink
display gourmet food items such as sea salts, pastas, pestos, and tepenades.

Savor infused olive oils like Wild Mushroom & Sage, Cilantro & Roasted Onion, or Fig.
Or vinegars such as Sicilian Lemon, Jalepeno, or Cinnamon Pear.

 With ingredients like these, how can we not be inspired to create delicious dishes?
They even have a Recipe Center with ideas to help us along.

Traditional, infused & organic olive oils are brought from California, Chile, Spain, France, Italy & Greece.
They carry wine and champagne vinegars, as well as balsamic, which is barrel-aged in Modena, Italy.

Gorgeous gift "tubs" are clever ideas for giving.

It's more than a place to shop; it's a tasting and learning experience.
I look forward to going back!

there's also a Tubby Olive at Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia.
