Fruitcake anyone?

  1. I would like to know how many people Really like fruitcake? I don't know anyone who does. Yet people get it and give it for presents. I say they ought to ban fruitcake from Christmas. What's your opinion?

    I have never had fruitcake. I'm really curious as to what all the fuss is about. Maybe I should just go buy one.

    My mom used to make great fruit cakes. They were very tasty and moist. They were so good that people would start calling her around the end of October to put in their requests for one.

    There were weekends that I swore the house suddenly became a fruit cake factory.

    honestly... I hate fruit cake... I think it is the scum of the earth...(or at least is like my moms bathtub floor... and I have 2 bros, and a dad at home...)

    on the other hand, a bud of mine from Jamiaca makes Rum cake... oooohhh delectable.... kinda looks the same though... tastes so different...

    Barb,

    Now rum cake is gooooood! Fruitcake? No.....I think that if real fruit was used instead of those plastic thingys that I've tasted, it might be pretty good. What are those things that they call fruit anyway?

    pkmom,

    GOOD LUCK! Let us know what you think about this thing they call a fruit cake.

    I do! I do! I like good fruitcake. There is a lot of bad fruitcake out there too though and you just don't know until you sample it. Lots of rum does help though.

    Ya know, I have never actually tasted a fruitcake. I just assume that I don't like it because it just doesn't look appetizing. It has too much "stuff" in it. My grandmother always made them around Christmas time and I wouldn't touch the stuff.

    I guess those of us who really like Fruitcake are in a minority. But I honestly look forward to Christmas because of Fruitcake. It's all a matter of taste, I suppose! Actually it is one of a few things I do like about Christmas. Much easier to tolerate than shopping!!!
