Trader Joe's has a large jar of morello cherries for under 3 bucks.(sugar added I think)
Hmmm...also sells large containers of yogurt .
I would get the plain yogurt if I bought the sweetened cherries.

Looks & sounds delicious, but I'd probably replace the cherries with strawberries, because I'm not a big fan of cherries. My absolute favorite yogurt parfait is the ones from McDonald's.... mmmm sooo good!!!!
