The fruitcake from Southern Supreme is really good but it's more of a nut cake than fruit... It's good!

Went back to Cabela's to check on the "one star" review I left for on the Grandma's fruitcake I bought a month ago...IMAGINE my surprise, my review doesn't show up in the review section. There's a four star reviews from twelve days ago...but the newest one star review is four years old. I guess Cabela's doesn't publish poor reviews newer than 4 years...I'm shocked!

I love fruit cake. Homemade or the claxton brand, does not matter.

Yes I love fruitcake. Some are excellent, and some are unfit for human consumption.

My wife makes fruit cake cookies which are a variation of the classic cake.

They are very good, quite heavy and never get thrown out. I ate the whole batch one year while watching the World Juniors. She was ticked so I had to make another batch myself. I ate them too. smile

To the original question, my Mom would always get a Claxton fruitcake or two at Christmas, never cared for it until I got older. Can't say I've ever had a really bad fruitcake (even the military issue ones) but it's not high on my list of favorite foods.

Have a good recipe for Scottish shortbread which is mostly a big pile of butter and flour with minimal sugar. It literally melts in your mount so will eat that or give some out as a Christmas present.

My MIL made those and now my wife. They called them "Melting Moments".

A classic at our Christmas table.

I pan fried (toasted) a few slices of my 3 yo Claxton this morning, slathered on some butter and then some maple syrup. Nice compliment to the pancakes. Yes, the fruit was still real fruit! OMG.

There are so many variations on fruit cake that it runs the gamut from garbage to delicious. As a kid my maternal grandmother bought some kind of fruit cake from a German bakery that was delicious.
