Pacific Northwest Cherry Company Releases Cherry Blossom Collection

8 Mar

This month Washington, D.C. will commence the celebration of 100 years of cherry blossoms in the nation’s capitol. On the opposite coast, Northwest specialty food company Chukar Cherries is celebrating with an expanded line of blossom-themed gifts. The gifts feature dried cherries covered in artisan chocolate, all natural cherry sauces, and green tea.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the gift in 1912 of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo. The trees and festival commemorate the friendship between the two countries. Chukar Cherries celebrates blossom time every year with cherry blossom chocolates and gifts. However, in recognition of festival’s 100th anniversary, Chukar Cherries has broadened their offerings.

Pam Montgomery, founder and CEO of Chukar Cherries, explains the inspiration behind the gifts this way, “The first blush of cherry blossoms is a special time and holds the promise of the spring to come. Chukar’s cherry blossom gifts are a salute to this magical season.”

Chukar’s Cherry Blossom Collection started with the release of milk chocolate Cherry Blossoms which feature a dried cherry covered in a swath of milk chocolate and a thin layer of berry flavored white chocolate. The success of this gift led to the release of the Cherry Blossom Assortment Gift Box with milk chocolate Cherry Blossoms and Cherry Bings alongside Dark Chocolate Classic Cherries. This gift box is adorned with a hand illustrated cherry blossom drawn by Washington artist Jim Hays.

This year Chukar’s blossom collection features several new gift baskets including the Cherry Tea Time Gift Basket and the Cherry Jubilation Gift Box. Chukar also offers Cherry Blossom Green Tea flavored with hibiscus, rose hips, and cherry in gift boxes adorned with cherry blossoms.

All Chukar’s products including dried cherries, chocolate-covered cherries, cherry sauces, and fruit and nut mixes are 100% natural. Chukar makes nearly everything they sell at their manufacturing headquarters in Prosser—Washington’s wine and cherry growing capitol. Their locally grown cherry sweets and treats can also be found in Seattle’s Pike Place Market and online at http://www.chukar.com.
