Celebrate Cherry Month with SLOAN!

This February, SLOAN! celebrates National Cherry Month 2022 with our curated list of interesting food & drink containing cherries – or in some cases, sakura cherry blossom – as one of their ingredients.

Judy Garland sang that “Life is just a bowl of cherries” and that’s certainly true at the start of February each year when we see a whole host of food and drink products related to the juicy red fruit being promoted online and in the shops. Whether you love cherries or have just caught on to the cherry trend for National Cherry Month, here is just a small selection of cherry-flavoured food & drink we found to be deliciously different or in some cases, just plain different!

Fabbri Amarena Cherries in Syrup

Fabbri Amarena cherries in syrup are world famous demi-glacé cherries – and with good reason! The Amarena cherries are soft and juicy, with a pleasing sourness that balances the sweet syrup. Pop a few cherries on top of a dark chocolate mousse or gateaux for a decadent dessert. The sour cherries are also brilliant with ice cream, particularly with pistachio or a really good vanilla. Or pair with a thick vanilla or Greek-style yoghurt for an indulgent breakfast.

Rich Cacao and Morello Cherry Flavour Bar

This Rich Cacao & Morello Cherry flavour vegan snack bar from Love Vegan by Jennifer is guilt-free treat that's Dairy Free, Wheat Free and Gluten Free with no added sugar. Made from dates, cashews, currants, sunflower seeds and sultanas, we were disappointed that it only contains morello cherry flavouring as opposed to the real goodness of cherries themselves.

Marui Shokuhin Cherry Blossom Tea

This cherry blossom tea is an acquired taste given that it is made by pickling and drying mid to late spring Japanese cherry blossoms so the vinegar and salt ingredients result in a salty tasting tea that may not suit many Western palates. However, the blossoms do look pretty as they unfurl in a cup of hot water. This tea is traditionally drunk at Japanese weddings and other occasions where new beginnings are to be celebrated.
