Fruit Cake
« on: September 20, 2017, 02:10:40 PM »
OK, I love Fruit Cake, and I especially love Good Fruit Cake. Previous Fruitcake Topic
 Last year we conducted a "blind test" of three different well known fruit cake brands, and the clear winner for us was the Southern Supreme.  I say "we" because PatD was also a taster and she will not normally eat fruit cake. Fruitcake Shootout The Southern Supreme is more described as a "nut" cake rather than a "fruit" cake.

Well anyway, the Southern Supreme flyer came in the mail so I ordered our first one for the year.

I still have fond memories of delivering fruitcakes, tins of pecans and monkey calendars to folks in Mississippi County, Missouri.  We packed the back of a 1951 Chevrolet pickup with these items.  The folks receiving them were always very appreciative.  I also got to indulge in some of fruitcake and pecans. 
Don't recall where they came from.  The brochure picture of the fruitcake looks like it's just a few fruit things on top and lots of nuts inside the fruitcake.  Yum!

Found this one at Costco today. It is unbelievably good. Let the holiday season begin.

   Becky made one last weekend. We still have about half of it left. I see 2 more boxes of fruit on the counter so looks like more to come.
