That's what was pixxing me off. Once I had it in my head that it was an acronym, I never thought to look for an anagram. I love anagrams too!

Funny how something can slip you by if you don't know in which direction to think

I've started a new thread with food anagrams if you want to play along :)

I've been using one as a doorstop for the last 10 years...still looks just as fresh as the first time I saw it.

My best girlfriend had a neighbor she called "the cat lady". She was a nice enough lady, but the woman lived in a filthy house with more cats than she could count. Ugh! Anyway, every year the cat lady would make fruitcakes for all the neighbors, and my girlfriend would "regift" the cake to her S.O.B. boss.

when this thread was first posted over a year ago, a few people didn't realize that the title was 'fruitcake' spelled backwards. other members were reminded that they like anagram puzzles, and as a result, snip initiated the foodie anagrams game which we still play at dc today.

but the central question of this fruitcake thread was never answered, or even addressed. the question was this: what is it about fruitcake that causes it to be taboo as a subject for open discussion? and, secondarily perhaps, what about the taste of fruitcake is so objectionable that it elicits such unmitigated hostility and disgust from some of its detractors....

care to give this fruitcake controversy another look in 2012 with christmas one short month away?
