amazing salsa

We go to Manistee Michigan to visit my father in law and always hit Glemwoods who sell you salsa. After buying 3 jars my husband opened on before we even left Manistee and ate almost the whole jar. Need to defiantly buy more. Love love love this salsa

Alice | August 12, 2016


Probably my most favorite of any salsas. Just enough heat to make it interesting but still with great flavor!

Randy Tambourine | September 29, 2015

Sweet and Spicy Anytime Snack

The sweetness of the cherries combined with a subtle spicy flavor makes this the perfect anytime snack day or night.

Andrea Satoh | September 21, 2015

Mary Young | September 18, 2015

Cherry Salsa - Can't live without it!

We order a case every year for our own use. I also send gift basket's to my family for the Holiday's. It is now everyone's favorite. Love it on breakfast burritos and breakfast casserole! YUMO!

Marilyn Dalman | September 17, 2015

Best Salsa This, and That, Side of the Rockies

When I was living in California, Mom and Dad would be certain to include a jar in virtually every care package. Now that I'm back in Michigan, well...they just won't have to ship as far.

Jeff Velis | September 11, 2015

The hot salsa is a family favorite.

We buy at least 2 cases a year and mix it with chili and other dips and always is the hit of the party.

Jim | September 11, 2015

Spicy Cherry Goodness

Zach Dugger | September 9, 2015

Cheers for Cherry's with ZIP

Love salsa, love cherries, great taste with a wide range of food.

Fred Goldenberg | September 9, 2015

Tried Many different types...but keep coming back

We are Salsa Addicts and have tried many different flavors and types of Salsas. With all the ones we've tried, we keep coming back to the Original Cherry Salsa from Cherry Republic. It's got a fine sweetness/flavor that makes it perfect with any type of chip or needed topping. Keep it up Cherry Republic.

Gary Pritchard | September 9, 2015


Tasted the Cherry Salsa at a Christmas Village, and, "Wow!!" I have given it as gifts and keep a jar myself. Absolutely love it!!

Charlotte Layne | September 9, 2015

Best in the West - Michigan too

We live in Montana & started buying Original Cherry Salsa when we visited Relatives in Michigan. We took some home - yum, gave as gifts - yum & reorder all the time - yum yum!

Shel Pasichnyk | September 8, 2015

Flexible and delicious!

My family loves Cherry Salsa. We use it in our chili and on our chicken. It is a great appetizer treat drizzled over cream cheese and served with crackers. My husband and I travel to the Florida Keys in the winter and we have started taking this as a Michigan treat for our friends. They now eagerly look forward to the arrival of their Cherry Salsa.

D. Sue Winkel | September 8, 2015

Hands down, favorite salsa

This is my favorite salsa; hands down. When we have it in the house, it maybe lasts two days. It's deliciously chunky with great flavor. A little bit of heat, but not overpowering (I'm very heat adverse and this is the right blend). We've given this salsa as gifts and everyone always raves about it (even non salsa lovers).

Alicia | September 8, 2015


I love this salsa! Just the right amount of everything makes a very smooth texture that is delightful with chips or veggies or grilled fish.

Julie B | September 8, 2015

Cherry Salsa is the best

FOr the last few years we have take jars of Cherry Salsa back from vacation as a gift to a neighbor who watches our cat. He absolutely loves the stuff! I don't like salsa and never eat it. I decided to buy a small jar to have on hand. I tried it and now I am addicted! I absolutely am a fan of cherry salsa.

Kaye Castle | September 7, 2015

excellent product -

shared the low and medium heat salsa with 3 first-time friends visiting GA last week, and they all loved it. my family has loved it for years.

Bill McAllister | September 7, 2015

Delicious and Tasty

I would never have thought that cherries would make great salsa. This product changed my mind. It is so delicious and tasty. My mom bought it for me as a gift and I was not disappointed. You just can't stop eating it.

Christine Evans | September 7, 2015

This is a little piece of heaven!

I can't stop about this salsa!! I love me some salsa, and try all kinds, but this one is a show stopper!! I get the mild heat and could eat the entire jar, in hiding of course, so I don't have to share! It has a delish fresh taste with bursting sweet cherries-nom nom! This is something you can only get from Cherry Republic. I have tried to comb the earth and find something sweet similar, like mango, peach or pineapple-good luck! You will never in a million years find a salsa this absolutely wonderful! I am overdue to order another jar! My friend brought us a jar back from a trip to Michigan last week and it was gone in an afternoon, oh my breaking heart!!

Tina Bishop | September 6, 2015

Great product

If you are using with chips or adding to a dish this salsa is for you. I make a dish with stew beef adding lots of vegetables. Just before it is done I add a jar of cherry salsa and everyone loves it. I also use on seafood. This is one product you will find hundreds of uses for.

Karen Mugridge | September 6, 2015

Great Stuff

The salsa is great with the cherry nacho chips

Dave Cipolla | September 6, 2015

Best Salsa Ever!

I am not a salsa eater. However, this salsa is so delicious that I can't stop eating it. It has just enough sweetness to keep you coming back for more!

Kelly | September 5, 2015


Very tasty -- superior to "mass market retailers" in every way. Very mild - I personally prefer a bit more "pop" or heat to the salsa, but excellent for flavor. Great for the faint of heart or when you don't know the preferences of the guests.

Bob Matota | September 5, 2015

love the taste goes with chips, meats , and cheeses. So versatile.

great product so versatile. Goes with anything like meats, cheese, crackers, chips and sour cream. Taste great!

Nancy mac | September 5, 2015

So good- that you will pay for overnight shipping to get it in time for the Super Bowl !

That is all that my husband had a taste for and needed for his private Super Bowl Party. Finger licking good to the last drop! We were given a little jar for Christmas from a friend- and were hooked! Incredible flavor. Bright , and clean with the surprising taste of cherry that comes through . Wonderfully exciting product! We love it!

Donna Silha | September 5, 2015

Delish dish!

A great salsa for our summer get togethers at the lake. We all enjoyed it from small kids to adults. Great combined with corn chips as a dip! Can't stop eating it!

Marge | September 4, 2015

Can't Get Enough!

We LOVE Original Cherry Salsa! Not only do we scoop it with chips, we also spread the salsa on grilled chicken and pork. There is always a battle over who gets the last bit in the jar! Love Original Cherry Salsa!

Kim Sherlock | September 4, 2015

Sweet and tangy

Sweet and tangy with just the right amount of zip to it!

Susan Scott | September 4, 2015

Our “go-to” Michigan gift

This salsa, combined with a package of dried cherries, and a jar of cherry BBQ sauce, is our “go-to” gift from Michigan -- also could be considered a “go to Michigan” invitation!)

Laurie Onopa | September 4, 2015

Great Salsa, many uses!

I love this salsa, not just for chips, but it is wonderful on cream cheese and crackers, on brie baked, I even eat it on cheesecake! (a little sweet, a little spice).

Janet | September 4, 2015

Best salsa I have ever had

This is the only salsa I have ever been able to eat. I love the flavors along with just enough sweetness from the cherries.

Dianne Dulnik | September 4, 2015

Great taste but a little sweet

I love most cherry republic products. My favorites being the dark chocolate covered cherries and dried cherries for baking.

Georgette Depew | September 4, 2015

Amazing stuff!

My husband and I both agree that there in no better salsa in the Midwest (and probably in the country) than your cherry salsa. I am originally from Manistee and make it a habit of picking some up when we go North to visit my parents. When you are in Indianapolis I always stock up, and then also order online whenever we run out. We always have your salsa in our pantry.

Kim Holmes | September 4, 2015

love it

Another hostess gift that always pleases. Dinner parties, cocktail parties....always a hit.

freddi kilburn | September 4, 2015

This is the Best!!!

This is the best salsa we have had! I recommend it to all our family and friends!

Bonnie Brooks | September 4, 2015

Love this stuff

The best salsa!! We love it. Grandkids cannot get enough of it.

Sandra Guerro | September 4, 2015

Original Cherry Salsa

Born in Michigan, but living in Texas, I first came to know about Cherry Republic when you set up a booth at the Nutcracker Market in Houston. I am NOT a traditional salsa lover, but I absolutely LOVE this salsa. Like the mild one best. It's sweet and has such a rich cherry flavor. Last Christmas I sent my Michigan siblings gift boxes from Cherry Republic and now they are also big fans. Guess what they are getting again for Christmas this year?

Drove all the way to Glen Arbor from Mt. Pleasant last spring just to buy a new supply of salsa, jams, cherry chips, and shirts!

Kathy Kirchner | September 4, 2015

so delicious!

I love this salsa! It is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. I could seriously eat a whole jar.

adogg | September 4, 2015


We love this salsa and it does make a nice present too.

Henning | September 4, 2015

Cherry Salsa

absolutely love this salsa!!! Could eat a whole jar in one sitting! lol

Laurie Bagozzi | September 4, 2015

So good!

This salsa is the best. We eat it by itself and layered with sour cream and refried beans. It's awesome - do not hesitate to try it. It's not too sweet - just the right amount of sweet and savory!

Kim Ramzee | September 4, 2015

Wow...Salsa doesn't get better than this...

If you don't like cherry's, if you don't like salsa, if you don't like will still LOVE this salsa. It's amazing. Perfect amount of cherry and tomato to make a tangy, slightly sweet perfect salsa. During the holidays I buy a bunch and give them out as gifts. A Michigan native living in Florida, I have gotten nothing but rave reviews about the amazing salsa and its a way for me to brag about my home state.

Jennifer S | September 4, 2015


A wonderful blend of sweat and spicy. Perfect for a summertime chip & salsa kind of party!

Christina Long | September 4, 2015

Can't get enough!!

Some of the best salsa around!! Just the right amount of Spice and just the right amount of Sweet!!

Patrick | September 4, 2015


I have to admit, I let this sit in my pantry for a year, because it did not sound appetizing at all. I'm an idiot. The most delicious salsa I've ever had! Sweet and Tangy. A bit spicy. I admit, I eat it out of the jar! Chips are just a waste!

GAIL | September 4, 2015


As a famous TV Tiger would say, "They'rrrre GREAAAAT!"

Rick Farfsing | September 4, 2015

Michigan Cherry Chili

When reading one of the Cherry Republic (CR) Newsletters, they mentioned a Michigan Cherry Chili recipe. I e-mailed them for the recipe and Katie M. sent a copy to me immediately. It uses 9 oz. of the CR Original Cherry Salsa, which I quickly placed my order for. It was quick and easy and best of all delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe, it has become a staple in my collection.

SuzyM | September 4, 2015

We just love the Cherry Salsa

We received the salsa as a Christmas gift last year and just fell in love with it. When we have friends over and serve it as a snack they all love it too. Have tried the rest but yours is the best.

Gerrit DeGraaf | September 4, 2015

The Best Cherry Salsa

Cherry Salsa was part of a gift package I received years ago. I had no idea what to expect, so I put it aside. One evening, caught unawares by guests, I pulled it out and served it. While it lasted (which wasn't long), it became a focal point! It is different and delicious. Over the years, I've tried others, but none have compared to Cherry Republic's.

Megan Connelly-Accardi | September 4, 2015

Cherry Salsa is the best!

I never knew that Cherry Salsa could be so good until we made a visit to the Cherry Republic store in Glen Arbor - what a treat!

Diane Reed | September 4, 2015

Can't get enough

We live in Ohio and visit "Up North" a couple weeks during the summer months. We love Cherry Republic in Traverse City and Glen Arbor!! My daughter and I can't get enough of the Cherry Salsa. It's so good!! There's no other salsa that compares! She was happy to discover that you have a store in Ann Arbor and said we'll have to visit it more often because we can't wait until summer time to get our salsa. We may need to order a case to get through the winter. Thank you!!

Casey | September 4, 2015

cherry salsa

This is the best flavor for chips and i have been buying it for years, sometimes by the case, when i traverse city you must try there salsa and it will become your favorite too.

lynn bean | September 4, 2015

Chips, dips and more

'Love this sweet tasting salsa. Excellent for marinating with balsamic vinegar, too, or as a cracker dip with cream cheese and a glass of wine.

Mark Folta | September 4, 2015

Gotta Have It

Love, love, love this salsa! Whenever we go to the Republic, this is a must buy. When my daughter lived in California, I would ship some to her and make her day!

Doreen Morrison | September 4, 2015

ok but needs hotter flavor

This product is ok for those who like salsa without a spicy kick. It needs a much spicy taste.

Richard Germer | September 4, 2015

The Best

I really like the Original Cherry Salsa. It has just the perfect combination of flavors to make it the best Salsa. It is great with chips and added to rice and bean dishes.

Regina Young | September 4, 2015


We headed up north last fall and made a "pit" stop to Cherry Republic in Glen Arbor. We were impressed with the variety of foods and drinks available and loved sampling all of the items displayed throughout the store. The Original Cherry Salsa made a huge impression on us and we made sure to bring enough jars back to share with friends and family. The salsa was a hit with everyone! It has just the right amount of sweet cherry flavor combined with a bit of spiciness that isn't overbearing and it goes well with all sorts of snack products - especially salsa chips! We can't wait to get back to Cherry Republic to restock our salsa supply and to bring home more goodies for everyone!

Anthony and Vira | September 3, 2015

Sweet and Spicy

What a nice change to regular salsa! A perfect mix of sweet and spicy!

Tammy K | September 3, 2015

Love the cherry salsa

We love all the products at CR, but love the cherry salsa the best. We serve it w chips and crackers at our home, and give it for gifts. But my favorite way to use it is as a sauce over grilled salmon or other fish. It makes a plain old piece of fish something special. Try it!

Katharine Westie | September 3, 2015

Perfect Blend of sweet and spicy

The right hint of spice to a perfect cherry salsa. A must buy when we visit Glen Arbor.

Debbie Donohue | September 3, 2015

Sweet and tangy salsa

Whenever I visit Cherry Republic, I always buy my "must haves"...however, I also buy 1 thing that I have not tried yet. On one of my visits, I purchased the Original Cherry Salsa and I am happy to say that it is now one of my "must haves"! I buy the Salsa by the case and often give it as gifts. It is such a yummy, fresh take on salsa. If I am getting low, I stretch it by adding to a normal store bought salsa to give the salsa some "real" flavor!

Susan Wilcox | September 3, 2015

Our Favorite Salsa!!!

My best friend got my entire family hooked on this salsa! It is chunky, has the perfect amount of spice and flavor that keeps you coming back for more. I started out buying the small jars and then said, forget it, I'm only buying the large size from here on out since the four of us could polish off a small jar just at dinner. I prefer this salsa over any other salsa out there, best stuff around, truly!!

Toni Dreist | September 3, 2015

Mouthwatering awesomeness!

There is not one person that can stop eating this salsa We have given this as gifts and always make sure it is part of our get togethers, and we always here the same thing "we can't stop eating this salsa, it's delicious" We received it as a gift years ago, and ever since we have used this as gifts for hostess gifts, thank you gifts and holiday gifts. Makes a perfect gift anytime of the year.

Sherry K | September 3, 2015

wonderful salsa

I love the is a hit. We get ordered few times a year and we buy it when in Michigan it only lasts In the house a week after buying and is a.great party dip

eileen maher | September 3, 2015

Best salsa in the World!

I live in TC and can't wait to get back to the original Cherry Republic in Glen Arbor to purchase my favorite cherry salsa. It's a unique product with a unique taste. I always take my visitors there to introduce them to the cherries from the Cherry Capital of the World!

Karen Lake | September 3, 2015

Cherry Salsa is great!

Serving the Original Cherry Salsa is always a hit during football season. It takes our guests by surprise, and they gobble it up! Thank you Cherry Republic for taking the salsa to new level!

Susan Nylund | September 3, 2015

Great stuff

Occasionally my husband & I will have cheesy quesadillas & salsa in the evening. Of course it has to be this salsa. It is just sweet enough & with a little spice

Judy Tackett | September 3, 2015

Some of the Best Salsa I've Tried

We bought a jar of the cherry salsa to try and now we're hooked!
Looking forward to our next visit so that we can stock up

LTC (R) Gary Hermsen | September 3, 2015

Our favorite!

We received a jar of the cherry salsa as a gift many years ago and loved it! Now we are never without a supply and often give it as a gift. It has a unique and semi sweet flavor that's wonderful with so many foods.
