This traditional dessert is handmade with whole pitted sour cherries floating in an all-natural syrup of sugar and water - no preservatives or additives at all, just simple island sweetness.
“Spoon Sweets” are that quintessentially Greek accompaniment to coffee, and the sour cherry version is perhaps the most classic and well-known of them all. They are served as you’re welcomed to someone’s home, with a spoonful on a small plate. But don’t just save it for visitors, share it with all your family and friends!
Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants.
For foodies with a sweet tooth, Citrus Scent of Memory offers a zestful view into the unique heritage of the Greek island of Chios.
We love Spoon Sweets as a topping for cheesecake, flan, panna cotta, yogurt parfaits. Need a recipe? Add it in your chia pudding, or your morning oatmeal, toast or bagel or top crepes, waffles, pancakes and muffins. Here is a favorite one for a panna cotta topped with Citrus' Chian tangerine spoon sweet, which you can make with any of the Citrus Spoon Sweets, or try Maria’s favorite flourless chocolate cake - the Sour Cherry version can turn it into a Greek version of Black Forest Cake! And, of course, you can even enjoy it the traditional Greek way, as a spoonful of sweet luxury with your afternoon coffee or tea.

We chose Citrus for the way they have exalted the rare variety of Chian Mandarin, a PGI product, and for the passion they bring to all of their exclusive small-batch products. We love that we can help the team bring the rich history of the Greek island of Chios into a more contemporary, dynamic present here in the States.
