Cherries are put through the strictest sorting processes. Prodded, judged, rotated, inspected, examined and then chucked aside if too small.

Cake fact: In 1865, a Romanian scientist built a calculator out of cake. However unlike a normal calculator, the buttons of this sweet gadget physically affected the calculator itself – the add button would make the cake increase, the divide would split it between friends, and so forth. However in 1868 the calculator disappeared entirely when the scientist calculated his tax deductions.
