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.

These are so delicious, and work particularly well in a cacao smoothie - the combination of tartness and chocolaty richness is amazing. About to order some more!

Oooh, these are really REALLY good :) And it is near impossible to just have one or two- before you know it you have scoffed half the bag and need to remove it from arms length in order to stop eating. They start deliciously sweet, packed full of cherry flavour, before ending on a tart note. Delish!

There is nothing sour about these cherries - a wonderful sweet snack and a very novel gift too. My Dad loved them as part of his fathers day hamper.
