Gift for a Fruitcake Lover
I bought this for a friend that really loves fruitcake. They were excited to try it. Afterwards they said it was very good. I am not a fruitcake lover so I can not verify if it was good, but it was a great gift to give.

Our Personal Treat
We love this fruitcake. It's our personal holiday treat that is too good to share. Our friends and family turn their noses up at "fruitcake," but this one is unique and incredibly delicious. They don't know what they are missing, so we don't bother to offer it to them anymore. We eat the whole thing ourselves and savor every bite. My husband already told me to be sure to order it again next year!

I gave this fruitcake to my Dad for Christmas. We are both very disappointed. It is dry, small, and so very expensive.

Fruitcake not the kind that I have had over the years
I was very disappointed. I love fruitcake but not this one. Sorry to say I threw it away.
Georgia has Claxton fruitcakes can't be beat.

Tasteless and dry
Expected fresh fruit cake especially for the price. Almost totally devoid of moisture. Put brandy on it, helped a little, but was still crumbly! Talk about wary of fruitcakes the Vermont-made fruit, takes the cake! Received offer to replace, or refund. E-mailed I did not want it replaced, have heard nothing since.

A little overpriced, I am afraid but I got several free pieces of pecan shell. We usually get fruitcakes form several different places adn yours was the best.

Did you forget to soak the cake?
The ingredients for this cake are very good; it is unfortunate that they ended up in such a dry concoction. We purchased 3 of these cakes as gifts for our European hosts this holiday season. I would be embarrassed to give them to folks that have access to such great pastries. The cake is very dry â it cannot be cut into slices â it simply falls apart. I tried soaking one in spirits, it helped a little, but the fruit is so large â it still does not slice well. I have never eaten a fruit cake that really has no taste â my conclusion is they missed the soaking in orange liqure and brandy step â but remembered to leave the cake on the shelf for a year to make sure it dried out.
