Kids loved visiting the store and trying different samples. We went back several times during our visit. We bought several cherry teas.

Great Selection. Nice to try before you buy. Unique Products. Great variety of Cherry products: jam, salsa, bbq sauce, dried cherries, chocolate covered cherries, boomchunka cookies, toppings, pop, wine..... My favorites: Cherry Almond Butter (Jam), chocolate covered cherries, cherry ginger ale pop. One disappointment/negative: They charge you a 1% fee that supposedly goes toward preserving the area farmlands. It may... More

The samples of the foods and the wine makes this a plus for sure. The chocolate covered cherries are a favorite for my family but there are plenty of other items worth tasting. The prices are a bit steep in my opinion but are great quality too. Worth the trip for sure.

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.
