Just wondering who out there actually likes fruit cake... And I don't mean as a door stopper. My current favorite below...

Liked, didn't love, it as a kid but haven't had it in years. Today, I think it would evoke a positive response that was more nostalgia than actual enjoyment of the taste.

I love it! I agree with Ron that a good homemade one is best but I’ve enjoyed some commercial ones as well.

I like it, though I'm the only one in my family that does. And Claxton is the only brand I buy.

Many years ago I used to do business with the gal who, along with her brothers, owns the company now, supplying them with tins, baskets, and such for their special seasonal packaging. IIRC, her father bought the company back in the 1940's from the original founder. So, still family owned and operated. Really nice lady - very committed to maintaining Claxton's legendary quality - as were everyone I ever met at the company.

Not an “American” fruit cake, yet it’s the best holiday cake with fruit I think I’ve ever had in my life. Nice and airy, light flavors, with pops of dried fruit and candied orange peel

I don’t care for it but maybe I’ve just never had a good one. I haven’t eaten it for years. My dad used to get several as gifts every year and I’d try them occasionally. He loved them, but he also liked drinking buttermilk… :)

I haven’t had it in years, but last time it was homemade. It had plenty of rum in it. That was of course the best part.
