I used this at christmas for a chocolate and cherry trifle recipe and I was surprised how nice these were. I expected them to be mush and sweet but they werent. would buy again
Tasteless and gloopy
Bought this as a topping/filling to a Black Forest birthday cake, and I’ve got to be honest it kind of ruined it. It smells like cherries but it doesn’t taste of them whatsoever, it’s just mildly sweet! The majority of the tin is gelatinous purple goop with the odd soft lump of “cherry”. I think it would be best suited as a cheesecake topping if anything, but regardless I won’t be buying it again.
the can is full of very thick liquid with few whole mushy cherries. Its not whole cherries canned, if that's what you are looking for. Other supermarkets sell can of cherries in syrup which is much cheaper than this.
I used it for a quick trifle with trifle sponge, tinned custard and thick. Lazy but fab.
I surely must have got a rogue tin. Hardly any fruit, mostly a thick purple sweet gunge with a vague cherry flavour. Better to buy a tin of fruit or better still use fresh fruit.
Received this as a substitue for cherrys in kirsch. Decided to use it in a crumble but is was horrible. All of the cherries disappeared into a puree when baking with the crumble topping, It did not even taste of cherries.
I used this for a black Forrest gateau and it’s was really good. I will definitely use this again.
tastes of nothing but purple SUGAR
I've used this for years and always been happy with it, but this is the first tin I've bought this year and the recipe has been sweetened up yet again; The sweet tartness of the cherries is now nothing but SUGAR. All taste is gone, completely blanketed by sugar, which is the third largest ingredient after water and cherries (just 40% actual cherries now). This was my go-to product for a fast and fancy pie or crumble; now it's just a can of tasteless gelatinous blah.
too sweetb and soggy

Lovely cherry pie filling
