Let 'Em Eat Fruitcake

Someone commented below that he could do without fruitcake during the holiday season.

I beg to differ.

Oh, I agree: most fruitcakes are of the brick-and-mortar variety, more suitable for building retaining walls than actually eating.

But before you rush to judgment, I have to recommend the fruitcake made here. Every year I order a few, along with boxes of fudge. The stuff is saturated, absolutely swimming, in old fashioned Kentucky bourbon. You can practically taste the wood from the still. It's spectacular. I eat it for breakfast. It makes me unbelievably jolly. Try it. You can thank me later.
