Cherry Topping for Cheesecake - Is There a Decent Store-bought Brand Out There?

I have to make 14 cheesecakes for a reception at work. I need an easy, colorful topping that won't break the bank or take too long to arrange, as fresh strawberries would.

My experience with canned cherry topping/pie filling is that the flavor is pretty good, thanks to the inherent tartness of red cherries. But these toppings tend to be short on whole fruit and long on the red gloppy sauce they are packed in.

Is there a brand that is a cut above the rest or another alternative anyone could suggest? Thanks in advance.
