The chocolate covered cherries are the best!!! However, the prices are wayyyy too high! Everything that I have tasted there is outstanding, but I don't feel the price justifies the purchase.

And I mean everywhere! All around the store, you can sample salsas, cherryaki sauce, barbecue sauces, cherry mustard, and so on and so forth. Didn't planned on spending anything there, but left with quite a big bag. They even gift wrap for free!

My husband and I get to Traverse City two or three times each year and always make plans to visit Cherry Republic! We like the fact that you can taste test everything before you buy. We have purchased cherries in bulk from the grocery store and they do not begin to compare with Cherry Republic! Normally, we buy several gifts... More

Although I never knew it before arriving, Traverse City, prides itself as the Cherry Capital of the USA. The Cherry Republic is the mecca for all things made with cherries, from baked products, candies, wine and sodas, all types of sauces, etc. The cherry pies and cherry ice cream are the best. Definitely at a must stop on Front St.

We stopped at a couple of these stores while in Michigan and must say that the salsa's were excellent. The stores offer plenty of samples for most of their product. Well worth the stop and also the purchase.

They have wonderful dried cherries and chocolate coated dried cherries with choice of many chocolate coatings from dark to white. More exotic items are cherry BBQ sauce and a hot... More

I didn't have a lot of time to spend here but the locals in the area told me it was a must see in Cherry City! I'm glad I stopped because I was able to pick up an array of treats to take home. Go hungry because there are plenty of samples to be had! Everything I tried was good... More
