Never understood why folks are so vocal about their dislike for fruitcakes. No one makes a person buy or eat one.

I've seen no fruit cake would stand up against my band saw and some home churned butter. Specially if F/C allowed to sit until spring when the old cove gets into the onion grass stinking up her milk /butter. Don't forgit ta knock the mouse poop offin the top of the cake. Storin cake that long might not be a good thing. My local saw bones says they is a tooth store down the road so ifin last years cake breaks off a chopper , it can be easy replaced , long as I have some wallet cabbage ta pay. Dunno 'bout that.

Yes, but you might have to BE one to BUY one.
And, you are what you eat.

Just sayin'

There is a gun shop around here that has many 1# cans of black powder caps too. Of course I'm not saying where or the name. 😆😆

Yep, some folks have to hate things for no real reason and then shout about it.

I haven't been this short on BP since the late 1990s. I've got to come up with enough scratch to get an order made.

Fruitcake. It's the perfect gift, though. Buy a fruitcake and it can be passed around every Christmas for eternity.

I never cared for it, but it does have a shelf life about measured in glacial epochs. With the recent trend of long term calorie stockpiling (not new to me) I looked at maybe acquiring a few tins or maybe learning how to make it.
