Fruitcake, No Thank You!

I've never been able to bring myself to eat a piece of fruitcake. The stigma surrounding fruitcakes has definitely dissuaded me from even trying some. As far back as I can remember, I’ve heard holiday horror stories about fruitcakes—the gift that keeps on giving, it’s the same on day one as it is 3 years later. Every fruitcake I have ever encountered has looked, smelt and felt exactly as every fruitcake I have heard described in holiday stories, hard, dense, and unappetizing, in one word—gross. For all I know, fruitcake could be absolutely delicious and I maybe totally missing out on a very good thing. However, my eyes and nose tell me differently. Maybe someday I’ll muster up the courage to try a piece, but I don’t think it will happen this season.
