For The Love Of Fruitcake...

Random post...

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?

Beth's Top Ten Least Favorite Foods
10. Beets
9. Steamed Okra
8. Sardines
7. Calamari
6. Kidney Beans
5. Tofu
4. Candy Corn (not really considered food, but I still don't like it)
3. Catfish
2. Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast

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?
