We are very proud of our dried tart cherries at King Orchards, and now we have even more of them to love. We recently added two new products to our store: All American Dried Tart Cherries and Dark Chocolate Covered Dried Tart Cherries.
All American Dried Tart Cherries are sweetened with apple juice rather than sugar. Dried cherries sweetened with apple juice are a great alternative for our customers who are watching their sugar intake, but aren’t quite ready for the extra-tartness of a completely un-sweetened tart cherry. Pleasingly plump and naturally sweetened, these dried cherries are a great kids snack (nothing but fruit and a light coating of sunflower oil) and a great choice for baking (they don’t absorb as much moisture from baking recipes).
We named these new dried cherries “All American” because we sweeten them with only U.S. grown apple juice. There is a lot of imported apple juice on the market these days and frankly, it would have been a lot cheaper to use, but we’re apple growers too, and couldn’t bring ourselves to using imported apple juice. Enjoy them in good health and in good conscience knowing you’re supporting U.S. apple growers.
Our second but no less exciting addition is Dark Chocolate Covered Dried Tart Cherries. Premium dark chocolate coats our traditional dried tart cherries, creating a rich and chewy, sweet and tart treat. What more can we say about these yummies other than, it’s about time?!
