A site devoted to collectors of memento spoons, you may ask? No, it's primarily stuff that is eaten with a spoon: preserves, jams, and jellies. And other "regional" foodstuffs, too. But the joke for us in the subtropics is that when these folks say "regional," they don't mean chilies, pecans, and salsas (well, there are salsas, actually), but rather wild rice, cherries, and hickory nuts. That's because the region from which this company hails is Michigan. American Spoon Foods is a great source of all forms of cherries, and its Web site is utterly charming with its folk art illustrations.
