So many goodies! Taste test most anything in this store. Everything is exceptional. I bought the spicy cherry BBQ sauce and it is delightful on chicken! Their cherry salsa is great and their sweets are wonderful! A fun experience and great way to take Traverse City away with you.

This is the perfect store for a touristy area like Traverse City. The cherry themed items are fun and different and the sampling options make it easy to experiment. The prices are high but you are buying items you can't typically find at the grocery store. I'd be curious how many locals actually visit, but for tourists, it seems like... More

A store full of cherries.... what is not to love. Cherry wine, cherry soda, cherry ice tea to sample. a great place to pick up gifts for family and friends that might not drink wine. The sour cherry candy was great. I had received cherry jam as a gift in the past, and I was excited to buy more!

Stopped while in town to do some wine tasting. Very good wines and not all cherry as you would expect. If you're not a wine drinker you still need to stop and try the cherry juice, jams, salsa, candy etc. Fun souvenirs. A must stop for Traverse City.

The shop offered a lot of samplings, like dark/ milk/ white chocolate-covered cherries; jam, honey, etc. It's a great place to get some souvenirs from Traverse City!

I always love this place, while a bit pricey, they are very neat. Got some cherry pop in many flavors, 3 for about $6. Some cherry salsa and taste tested many other things. Well worth the time and money to stop.

We love this place and stop in every time we're in the Traverse City area. They usually have an abundance of free samples of their cherry inspired goodies. I'll admit, it's touristy and you're paying for the novelty of many of the items. However many of them also happen to be pretty good. They happily ship items and package them... More

We usually try to make a trip out to Glen Arbor, but didn't have time this trip to the area. Love the salsas and BBQ sauce, dried cherries, and they've improved their wines over the years! Always worth a stop inside if you remotely like cherries.

So we spent over $80 here. That's a sign of how much we like it. The have great salsa. The chocolate covered cherries and the malt balls are wonderful. We love that we can sample most of it before we buy. Definitely a place to stop.
