Rooty Tooty Yucky & Fruity ~ Nik Snacks

Bite it and write it. That's what I do. Fueled by butterbeans & collard greens.

You would be surprised who.

There is a market for almost anything. People's tastes always amaze me.

Awww, c'mon, give the Claxton Fruit Cake a break! If served to me, I will eat this kind of fruit cake. I've had worse food. It's not my first choice, but the Claxton Fruit Cake is a great American story of an immigrant starting a business. . . http://www.claxtonfruitcake.com/page.php?page=story

You know, some people find Krispy Kremes reprehensible. And I don't agree with that at all either.

I know... it breaks your heart a little doesn't it? Ignorance may be bliss, but I feel bad for those tastebuds.

And I'm glad our cookies were a hit, even though... I mean look at us, of COURSE they were great :)

rachel: I mean, they *have* been producing quality since 1910...

little: If served to me, I'd eat it, too. But I'll be damned if I'm going to go out & purchase one of these bricks. I understand why people don't like Krispy Kremes. They're wayyyy to sweet & kind of well...prissy. When you want a doughnut, you want something with bones & meat to it...like a Dunkin Donut cake doughnut. Or even a pack of 60 doughnut holes. omgthosearesogood.

adam: I'll feign bliss to not have to eat this cake this season. But if there was a recipe contest, using this...I'd enter it. I sure would...

Yeah :) We are great!

Indeed Nik, I wouldn't BUY this fruit cake. . . it's the stuff a little old lady serves you with some nuclear colored punch when you Christmas carol at her house. And you feel obligated, haha!

Add a little mortar and those will make a nice house.

Nikki said...

little: never have I ever gone caroling. Maybe that'll change this season. I really hope no one offers me any fruit cake this year. I don't want the disappointment to show on my face.

manager: clove & cinnamon flavored mortar. Hey! You can make a holiday house with it. OK, I think I might buy a few to try it. Thanks for the idea.

Oh but I love fruitcake! Just not this one :P

Martha said...

Um, am I banded from your blog if I tell that I LOVE Claxton's fruit cake. My grandmother would send me one every year and now that she's gone, my uncle sends it...is that bad...I don't know why I love it, I just do!

When I was growing up, my uncle’s friends frequently brought him fruitcakes for Christmas. Besides the home-baked ones, one of the finest and most delicious was a Claxton fruitcake, made in the South. We somewhat liked that.
