Sour cherries, also known as tart cherries or pie cherries, are fast becoming known as a type of superfruit. These cherries contain a special combination of nutrients with a range of health benefits:
- Anthocyanins: These compounds have strong anti-inflammatory properties, and can also help to inhibit the growth of tumours.
- Flavonols: Improve circulation, promote heart and brain health, and control blood pressure levels.
- Phytochemicals and phenolic acids, which are full of disease-fighting antioxidants.
- Tart cherries are also alkalising foods, helping to combat conditions like gout which are caused by excess acidity in the body.
Did You Know? Cherries are one of the world’s few known natural food sources of melatonin, a hormone that helps to regulate your body’s sleep patterns.

Hence, my expectation was high. However, when I tried the cherries I was surprised because the bag was really tiny and the cherries tasted like high quality raisins but just softer, terribly sweet and a bit not sour at all. But I must say that they are very soft and chewy! For my tase, way too sweet and I could not really taste the typical cherry flavour at all... Wouldn't buy it again.05/05/2020, By WesleyPretty amazing taste25/04/2020, By ATerrific snack for hikes.
