Sourcing organic dried unsweetened cherries

Looking for this item for a good friend from out of town. She's specifically looking for the dried cherries with no sugar added, but also *not* of the sour variety. Ambrosia used to carry this, but now they only have a sweetened version for some reason. Any ideas? Thanks.

        lol, I love that area, so when I go there (usually for brunch), I often stop in to that store - I actually live very close to Ambrosia (unfortunately) so I go there often too.

        Have you tried Johnvince Foods in Downsview? I haven't been there in years, but..
        Can't tell from this if they are sweetened or not:

        I would be surprised if Wholefoods doesn't carry them.

      2. re: ambrosia - hah yeah i figured. johnvince sweetened as well!

          This might sound like an odd suggestion, but if you are in York Region, check Sue's Market at Major Mac, East of Bathurst, the carry some unusual items sometimes.

          Also, maybe T&T at Promenade? It's so big.....

        2. There is a vendor at the One of a Kind Craft Show that does unsweetened dried berries, including cherries. I'll be darned if I can find the name though and the website is promoting the next spring show. Anyone got an old program around? They have been in the Christmas show for ages.
