“Why do we call them olives and not Greece’s Pieces?”

"why do we call them olives and not Greece’s pieces” was posted on Twitter by Kerry on Wayward Son on August 17, 2020, and the tweet received over 38,200 likes. “Greece’s pieces” is a pun on Reese’s Pieces.

Many olives are grown in Greece, but Spain grows more olives. Italy is also a top olive-producing country.


Wikipedia: Olive
The olive, botanical name Olea europaea, meaning ‘European olive’ in Latin, is a species of small tree or shrub in the family Oleaceae, found traditionally in the Mediterranean Basin. When in shrub form, it is known as Olea europaea ‘Montra’, dwarf olive, or little olive. The species is cultivated in all the countries of the Mediterranean, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, North and South America and South Africa.

A few days ago my wife found a tweet asking why we don’t call olives “Greece’s Pieces” and I still haven’t recovered.
