In the very north of Lithuania there is a small town called Zagare. Once a year it proudly becomes the loudest meeting point for all the cherry addicts of the world. According to the legend spread by the town’s elders, many centuries ago Zagare was the world’s capital of cherries. With houses built from cherry seeds, rivers tasting like cherry compote and all the roads made out of cherry pits. Can you imagine the sweet and sour flavoured road? Well, to be honest I am not sure if any of these rumours are true but one thing is for sure – I am a cherry addict!
To begin with, the cherries are freeze-dried in order to preserve their delicate flavour, nutrients and freshness. Next they are carefully covered in premium dark milk chocolate and finished with a sprinkle of berry dust.
