Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Cherries Theme Week.

Today's Chocolate Liqueur Cherries from Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA) were an example of a higher-quality product in this category than is often available; and they brightened up a dreary winter day considerably.

The box-style package contained 33 chocolate cherries (11 servings), individually wrapped in gold foil, neatly lined up in shimmering rows.

At the center of each 49% dark chocolate shell was a pitted Morello cherry grown in Hungary, and liqueur containing sugar, cherry juice and alcohol.* As with all such liquid-filled cherries, bite into these with caution to avoid mischievous drips on your favorite shirt.

*These chocolate liqueur cherries were a product of Hungary and contained a maximum alcohol content of 4.4%. The cherries, as far as I could tell contained no wheat/gluten, artificial colors or preservatives.
