Merry Maraschino Cherries
Although the word "merry" implies Christmas, these Merry Maraschino Cherries aren't really seasonal -- I think they were just going for alliteration in the name! In any case, what draws me to these cherries as a stocking stuffer is that they do not have artificial colors, artificial flavors, sulfites, and preservatives. Honestly, I'm not sure I would recognize the taste as maraschino cherries, since I associate the kind you get at the grocery store with the most artificial taste in the world.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that they're red and have the word "merry"! They'd be wonderful for Christmas, but don't forget that another "red" holiday is coming up: Valentine's Day. These would be nice in a romantic little gift basket.
