Fruitcake - \ˈfrüt-ˌkāk\ a very sweet cake that contains nuts, fruits, and spices.
Blech! Yuck! Phooey!
It's the wee hours of the morning (4:15AM) and I'm working on a manuscript. Suddenly, I have a random thought about fruitcake.
Why? I'm not sure because I HATE fruitcake. It's one of those items that's been consistently on my Top Ten Most Hated/Despised things.
It's been said that only two things will survive a nuclear explosion--cockroaches & Twinkies. However, I'd like to add fruitcake to that list.
Thinking back over my life. I've not tasted fruitcake since I was a child, and yet just the mere mention of it brings back the full flavors to my memory. That sweet cake, gooey nuts and the worst part were those gummy/chewy pieces of dried fruit & candied candy? or were those pieces of fruit?

I've not checked the fruitcake polls lately. Someone is eating those things. My mother is a fan of them, but I seriously believe she is the only person that I know.
Do you eat fruitcake? Are you still hoarding the one you received as a Christmas gift last year? Are you re-gifting them to your co-workers during the White Elephant gift exchange?
