A dear friend mentioned that she longed for the hard-to-find thistleberry jam and lo and behold--at a steep price, but nonetheless--it awaited us here, much to our friend's amazement and delight!

American Spoon is known for the jellies, jams, preserves, and creative salsas they place in the jars. It is delicious and can be used in a variety of ways like spreading the jalapeno jelly on chicken. We used to sell it at a little store we used to have and ate as much as we sold.

First time we stopped in the store, good salespeople who were helpful and had the time for us. We bought some of the products to bring home and try their recipes..

We stop here every time we are in the Saugatuck area. American Spoon sells all types of sauces, jams and preserves. I love their cherry barbecue glaze even though it's a bit pricy. You can sample just about everything in the store.

This place had the best gelato that I think I have had in the USA. I saw the beautiful color of th e pistachio gelato and knew they knew what they were doing, it was awesome too. The owner has ptaken the time to offer truly authentic gelato here in this little beach town, I hope everyone appreciates it!

Delicious offerings. My favorite is the cherry preserves. I always buy one for my mom. She puts them in her thumb print cookies! 😋

The jams and other goodies here are just too good to pass up. The sour cherry preserves with lots of whole cherries is the best I have ever tasted. The items are not cheap, but they are so mouth-wateringly good. We always leave the store with a couple bags of preserves and sauces (most of which is sour cherry). The company is from northern Michigan, and they source their fruit locally. If you like jams, preserves, and fruit sauces (including BBQ sauces), American Spoon is for you!
