No literally this is my jam. My local Giant briefly carried it, and I fell in love with it. I’ve tried many other brands of cherry jam and none of them compare. Of course like everything that is my favorite the Giant stopped carrying it years ago to never have it return. I’ve determined that people in my neighborhood and I must not share the same taste in food because this happens all the time.
At least in this case unlike with some other products this jam still exists in the world. I just have to work a little harder to get it. There’s a Harris Teeter not too far away from where I go to church in Federal Hill that carries it so when I’m running low I’ll swing over there and buy up whatever they have in stock.
This worked well until a couple of weeks ago when I went over there to stock up on jam and they didn’t have it anymore either. Sigh. They must have just recently stopped carrying it because the Smucker’s website still lists it as a location where you can purchase the jam.
The two other closest places to buy the jam are the Harris Teeter or Target (of course the Mondawmin Target which is the closest to my house doesn’t carry it either) in Canton Crossing. I had to go to Target and Michaels today and since both of those reside in Canton Crossing I decided to make the trek through the city over there so I could hit them both in one location. As a bonus I realized I would also be able to stock up on jam while I was there.
I bought the 4 jars that Target had in stock. If I had been smarter I probably should have hopped into the Harris Teeter and bought up their stock too, but I didn’t. This will have to do me for awhile.
