If you are in Pagosa Springs, this is a must stop! We have been numerous times, and are always impressed with the customer service and the quality of items provided. Known for their caramels, "poops" (chocolates), and food products.. we have not had anything here that was bad! Be sure to participate in a "tasting". Employees will give you samples of various jams, jellies, vinaigrettes, and other items that will leave you saying MMM! The problem is.. what do we purchase to take home with us with everything tasting so good. We ALWAYS purchase a bag of caramels with nuts.. and normally purchase some jelly to share with family and friends.. The good thing is that they have a website and ship to your home if you just have to have that choke cherry syrup or jelly fix..

This is a must stop in Pagosa Springs. Walk in to the store and they greet you with a caramel and samples of their home made jellies, jams, dressings and marinades.(and whatever else you want to sample) Their caramels are the best I have ever had and their poops are famous. Their Choke Cherry items, caramels and poops are their specialties.The items are a bit pricey but definitely worth it!

We recently stayed at Pagosa Springs for a wedding and part of the wedding pack recommended a visit to the Choke Cherry Tree. What a great little place! The staff were warm and welcoming - they took us through free taste testing of a variety of their products (sauces, cream cheese mixes, jams, and their famous caramels!) and we even added a pin to their visitor world map! The products were delicious - they have a huge range of gourmet savoury and sweet foods/mixes/condiments etc. We came away with delicious apple and pear butter, red wine chocolate sauce, baby buffalo chocolate & caramel chips and key lime pie and smores mix (you mix it in with cream cheese to make a dessert dip!) - divine! Well worth a stop over and a free taste test!!!
