Name: Milk Chocolate Covered Cherries
Brand: Queen Anne
Place Purchased: Vons? (a gift)
Size: 5 oz
Type: Chocolate (fruit)

First, I’m not fond of cherry anything. Fresh cherries are just about the only cherry thing I will eat. Maraschino cherries are absolutely not something I care for, they’re so artificial. My tastes have matured over the years and while I’m not fond of a lot of foods, I’ve grown accustomed to being able to assess them for what they are and even get some enjoyment out of them.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way ...

These morsels are soft cherries covered in milk chocolate. No clingy syrup, just cherries and chocolate. The cherries are soft and chewy with a strong maraschino. I like that there is not syrup to get in the way, and that the chocolate is thick. However, the sweet cherries have no tangy/tart bite to them and the milk chocolate, though smooth, is entirely too sweet and perhaps a bit waxy.

If mixed in with another bunch of chocolate covered goodies, I could see this being a fair contrast. Put it in a mix of nuts, perhaps brittles and pretzels and some good bitter chocolate and it might work out okay.

Rating: 4 out of 10 (I didn’t finish the package)

  1. This brings back memories…

    The *only* candy I ever saw my dad eat, the only one I ever remember him saying he liked were chocolate covered cherries. It may have been an act of kindness on his part because it allowed us kids to buy him a gift each birthday or Christmas.

    Now I’m wondering if he really liked them: we ate most of the ones we bought him.

  3. I tryed this is another brand last year..i believe it was called Northern Orchard chocolate covered fruit.It was red,blue,and orange colored white chocolate covered over dryed strawberries,apricots,blueberries,and cherries.I didn’t think it would be any good but it was on sale after christimas so i thought id give it a try.I fell in love.Now i can’t find them at all.I hope to score this year and grab a couple of bags.Even though they did cost 5 dollars a bag.

  4. I think your chocolate covered cherries are the best; but would wish for white chocolate covered cherries, why not for us who can’t handle dark or milk chocolate

  5. Well I bought a box just like a do every year. So far out of 6 that we have ate 3 didn’t have a cherry inside not even a piece of cherry or the juice just that pink thick gunk. Won’t be buying these again.
