in defense of fruitcakes

Let me take a moment to air my biggest gripe of the holiday season: the bad rap on fruitcakes. They are a butt of jokes, IMO undeserved. (BTW, hubby just walked in, read over my shoulder, and said that he too loves fruitcakes; he described them as "manna from heaven.") I love fruitcakes. The more carcinogenic marischino cherries, the better. So hounds, I'm a busy person with no time to even think about making one...but if anyone here has any good commercial sources of fruitcake, I'm all ears. They are getting increasingly difficult to find in the grocery stores......better yet, if you got one as a gift, and don't want to eat it, email me off line and I'll tell you how to send it to a grateful couple.:-)
