To celebrate National Cherry Day (hey, if we can’t celebrate it, who can?) we asked our team to come up with their favourite cherries. The results were interesting and varied, and mostly, delicious!
10. Chocolate & Cherry Cake with Shortbread and Ginger
Chocolate, shortbread, ginger and loads of scrumptious cherries: oh yes, today will be a happy cherry day.
9. Toni Morrison’s Chokecherry Tree passage
One of the standout passages from Toni Morrison’s award-winning novel, Beloved. Anyone who’s read it will remember the cherry tree.
8. Cherry Strudel
A very popular choice of pudding that tastes better with each mouthful. Yummo!
Oh, the memories of nights danced away in Pacha nightclub, Ibiza. Love the cherry logo too.
6. Cherry Muffins
The breakfast choice of at least 6 of the Ocado team this morning. I’m jealous too.
5. Eagle-Eye Cherry
It’s his real name. And Save Tonight is our favourite Cherry song. Big love going to Nenah too though!
4. Steel Magnolias Cherry Coke
Who could forget the Cherry Coke scene in Steel Magnolias – cinematic gold!
3. Cherry Crumble
Cherry Crumble. Served with hot custard or cold ice-cream or simply on its own with a cup of tea. Cherries, we are not worthy.
2. Mia Wallace’s cherry
“This doesn’t sound like your usual mindless get-to-know-you chit-chat.” One of dozens of famous scenes in Pulp Fiction, but the only one stolen by a cherry.
1. Black Cherry Cheesecake
There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who love Black Cherry Cheesecake, and those who’ve never tried it.
Happy Cherry Day,
