Amarena Cherries in Houston

I've been looking high and low for Amarena in the Houston area, Whole Foods, Phonecia and Rice Epicurian market don't have them. Any ideas?

  1. I have never seen them but some places you might try in addition to what you've mentioned: Nundini's on Shepherd, D'Amico's in the Village, the big Antone's in the Village, Spec's on Smith, downtown.

    1. I just searched Spec's downtown (at and they didn't have them. Have you tried Central Market?

      1. Maybe you can call these places
