Hi Bob, I do recall seeing dried apricots in our Kroger & HEB stores but I've never seen dried cherries. I'll try again. Last time I looked (about a year ago) I could not find the dried cherries but I did find some dried prunes and thinking that they might work I got some. They worked ok but not for my gout! Pam is right about it takes hours to walk across our grocery stores here in Texas. Our stores are so big here in Texas most folks rent a golf cart just to get from one side to the other. :-) Our stores here in Texas have started a trend which is where divorced women hang out and if you are a single man you just ask for help finding something and these ladies will drop what they are doing and help you find your item. My problem is that I'm married!
