Montmorency Cherry Juice Box

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | June 28, 2018

So you’ve heard for years that drinking the juice squeezed from tart cherries eases muscle pain, soothes arthritis aches, and makes your heart healthier. And maybe you’ve dutifully popped a couple tablespoons in a glass, added water, and slugged some down each morning. Well, Shoreline Fruit’s Cherry Bay Orchards’ line has gone one better and bigger, just in time for your Cherry Festival picnic, parade, and party needs. They put a bag of their magical non-concentrated juice in a box with a push-button spout, so you can fill your cup — and those of your pals — quickly, easy, and what seems like endlessly. Tart, tangy, and totally natural, Cherry Bay Orchards’ tart Montmorency cherry juice is made exclusively from cherries picked on their 6,000-acre northern Michigan farm and tastes excellent straight, over ice, or mixed with club soda and cherry vodka when we’re feelin’ fancy. shorelinefruit.com
