Recently, while shopping in the produce section at Gelson’s market, I came across cherries in a bag. Has America really come to this? Branding for cherries? Cherries in mid September?
I eyed the bag skeptically, as I read:
Hood River Cherry Company
Mother Nature’s Magic on a Stem
Every cherry in this bag grew plump and sweet on the tree before being plucked and packed by hand. No machinery.
Magic on a stem, yeah right, I cynically thought…intrigued, I couldn’t resist purchasing a bag. With the first bite, sweetness exploded in my mouth and sent rhapsodic waves of delight throughout my body.
…And, now as I remember the experience, I have a huge smile across my face, and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to purchase another bag later today…
I hope you’re having a terrific week and discovering new pleasures! Best Wishes and Take Care.
