Chances are you've never had a really good one.
The dark fruitcake I usually make is fantastic (even folks who tell me they don't like FC say it's good...and how can you go wrong with lots of bourbon?).
I also like fruitcake jokes (I just pretend to be offended). And I found, online, the Society for the Preservation and Protection of Fruitcakes. Sounds a little wacky, but it's fun and a great holiday conversation starter!
