You may have caught this story on a my NewsBreak this morning: A Waukesha man has rediscovered in his mother's attic a fruitcake he received more than 40 years ago... Lance Nesta's two aunts sent him the fruitcake in November 1962 while he was stationed in Alaska with the Army... While looking at the cake's container this week, he noticed the listed ingredients included rum and brandy. Nesta says that, if he had known back then that it had rum and brandy in it, he would have eaten it.
I think it was Bob Seger who sang: "...I started eatin' a fruitcake from 1962..."
Truthfully, I tried my first fruitcake over the past holiday season. Not bad... one word does come to mind: dense. The thing was heavy, people.
