Okay...there are two fruits that oscillate being my favorite...peaches and cherries...both of which happen to be my absolute favorite combination over @FageUSA Greek yogurt.
Last year, much to my delight, I walked into @WholeFoods to discover cherries when I thought cherry season was long gone. I, of course, had to scoop them up. They were A-MAZE-ING! They are from Hood River Cherry Company in Oregon. I highly recommend checking out their website to learn about the various cherries they grow and the specialty products they offer. I honestly thought there were only Rainier and Bing varieties...thankfully, not the case.
So...this year, I anxiously anticipated their arrival. They are dark, dark, dark...almost black, crisp and so full of flavor.
Now...I have to share that they are not inexpensive. I kind of play @PriceIsRight with the sales associate ringing up my purchase. Once I see the amount, I think how crazy am I, but they are such a treat and are only available for what seems like a flash.
If you are a big fan of cherries, head to @WholeFoods - it is quite the indulgence and a healthy one at that.
I think cherries won as my favorite fruit for 2013.
