Ok..one of my favorite local confectionary businesses just posted this question on their FB page and I thought I would ask it to see if there was a different answer on Chowhound?
Does anybody really like fruitcake?
The second part to this question (my addition)..
If you do, any suggestions for a local purveyor?
I will proudly admit I like fruitcake. I'm not a fan of the super glumpy, weird brands that you can find at the grocery store during the holidays but I have enjoyed some really great fruitcake from local bakeries while I was living in the Chicago area.
Any other proud or closeted fruitcake eaters out there?
