We stop here every time we are in the area and eat our way through the place. Yes, it is embarrassing but they have sooo many samples out and they are all so yummy. The free samples work though. We always end up buying. The salsa and dark chocolate covered cherries are amazing. Good thing I don't like by one... More

This place has cherries prepared almost any way you can think of. Of course they have chocolate covered cherries with several different kinds of chocolate. Also, jams, cherry barbecue sauce, cherry salsa, cherry drinks, and a myriad of other cherry specialities. Fun place and the free samples don't hurt either.

This store is fantastic. They have samples of everything so you know exactly what you are buying. The chocolates are a delicacy and the salsas are delicious. We very much enjoyed the wine tasting which was free and the samples were excellent. This is a must stop when visiting Charlevoix.

I love this store because you can almost taste everything they sell. And most of it is really tasty and good quality from cherry chocolate covered espresso beans to cherry bbq sauce. Everything they sell has to do with cherries. Definitely a store to go back to. People are also very nice, and somehow they don't make you feel bad... More

While we were shopping in the store, an employee over heard I enjoy hot and spicy. They did not have out the samples of the chili, chocolate cover cherries. They immediately went into the back room and brought me samples! When I asked what type of chili was on the cherries, they took the time to look it up to... More
