That's right.....Its FRUIT CAKE SEASON. Now before someone says it " Only one Fruit Cake ever made, and its been getting passed around since then". Well if that were the case then I ATE IT A LONG, LONG, time ago. I LOVE EM !!

I hate it that they are a seasonal item. If anyone gets one and wants to get rid of it, SEND IT MY WAY ............ :D

I'm with you, SWO1. ;)
As I was growing up, my grandma in N.C. would send a Fruit Cake Tin every year. Love those things. I'm thinking maybe the 3 pound can????
By today's standard, I like the Hickory Farms Golden Fruit Cake the best. Not so fond of the ones that have Pectin or Orange Peel. At any rate, they are getting more expensive with each passing year. I may buy a couple anyway, just for traditional reasons.
SWO1, If you get overloaded with re-gifted fruit cakes, keep me in mind. :D

My mother, bless her heart, gets me one every year. It comes in a box that looks to be about 4-5lbs. But it weighs, I swear what seems like 100lbs ....... :eek: Its so rich I can only eat a small piece at a time. They are packed full of everything you could think of. Come to think of it, should be getting it soon ...... :p Think I will stroll on down there and ask if she has ordered it yet ........ :rolleyes:
