The Cherry Stop's Claire Moen said, "One of our really popular products is our cherry honey mustard and it sounds kinda weird when you first say it but everyone who tries it, they taste it and they love it, and its been definitely one of our most popular products so far."

The US cherry industry produces more than 650 million pounds of tart and sweet cherries every year. 75 percent of tart cherries are grown right here in northern Michigan.
