Thread: Queen Anne Cherries

    Default Queen Anne Cherries

    Does everybody hate these or what? Half the time they're on sale 3
    boxes (of 10) for $2. Today they were $.50/box - even the packaging
    must cost $.30!

    OK, it's not the best chocolate, but at least it's real chocolate.
    And the gooey half-white, half-liquid centers with the maraschino
    cherry inside are the bomb.

    Maybe it's just childhood comfort food for me. I bought 10 boxes.
    (that's 100pcs for $5)

    Am I the only one on the planet that eats these?

    LOL - I had a nieghbor who ALWAYS had a box of these out in her living
    room (bought from KMart, of course). I liked them when I was 8,
    because they were a novelty we never had our house (which I now realie
    was my mother's better taste).

    Now I would only eat them as a dare. Waxy and sickly sweet.

    We used to pick them in California at the "U-pick" Cherry Orchards.
    They are delightfully suited for pies.

    I think SW is talking about really cheap chocolate-covered
    maraschino cherries (with the soft but not liquid fondant centers.)

    Not a yellow-with-red-blush variety of real cherries. HTH :-)

    I quit looking for chocolate cherries a long time ago. I put them out of
    my mind. I believe I could eat a pound at a sitting with a quart of
    whole milk. Heaven! They're too good to be good for me, and I generally
    don't care about what's "good for me".
    I have denigrated myself to an occasional pint of 'Cherry Garcia' which
    ain't bad but isn't chocolate cherries by any stretch.

    I don't care for them. Cella's are far superior, IMO.

    That's like saying dog **** is better than cat ****!

    I don't like Cella's because of the "all liquid centers". I like
    the traces of white fondant. Other than that, they're practically
    the exact same thing.

    There is no such thing as "real" chocolate covered cherries, not
    unless you are refering to using real chocolate.

    "Queen Anne" is a cherry varietal, a light colored cherry that lends
    itself to dying for making marachino cherries. Queen Anne cherries
    are predominently grown in Oregon and Washington state. Regardless
    which brand of chocolate covered cherry, in the US they are virtually
    all Queen Anne cherries.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maraschino_cherry

    Unprocessed Queen Anne cherries are also readily available
    canned/jarred at most stupidmarket, Del Monte brand is popular.

    Queen Ann cherry trees are available at most plant nurseries at this
    time of year.

    He ended up giving pretty detailed instructions. I guess you just
    missed that part. Nearly all of us food slum in some ways. Those
    chocolate covered maraschino things are one of yours. John's cherries
    are spectacular. His toffee is great too. When my sweet cherries
    come in, I should do something of the sort with some of them. The
    trees are loaded this year.

    Damn. The left shift key does not work in combination with the letter
    T, nor does either shift key work with the quote markers. I hope I
    can fix that soon.

    I do use "real dark chocolate" to cover my Chocolate Covered Cherries.

    And I use REAL cherries, not those maraschino things that are only
    called cherries because at one time, they used to be cherries! YUCK!!

    That's right. They grow on trees here in California.
