Rated 1 out of 5 by Sarah from Does not taste great I've been curious about fruitcake for years and this year I decided to order one and see what the fuss was about. I really, really wanted to like this. I love nuts and candied fruit, but I did not love this cake. It's acceptable slathered in butter...barely.Date published: 2017-12-10Rated 4 out of 5 by debra from The Abbey"s best tasting fruit cake I bought this in November and I truly enjoyed this fruit cake,when you make a purchase you want to be satisfied and I say money well spent.Well, to be truthful I had to add a little brandy over it,what good is fruit cake without a little brandy.This cake tasted good and was not hard as a rock,as compared to old fashioned fruit cakes.Date published: 2017-02-16Rated 5 out of 5 by DIllinois from YUM! What A Fruitcake Should Taste Like The fruitcake was delicious. We order one every year. Too bad they are not available all year.Date published: 2017-01-09Rated 3 out of 5 by DinaM from average fruitcake I have been buying Assumption fruitcake for several years through Wm Sonoma. Last year I was unhappy with it and asked if they had changed the contents and was told no. I decided to try it once more this year and found it was dry and not tasty like other fruitcakes. I will not order it again.Date published: 2017-01-04Rated 5 out of 5 by ablessedsparrow from Mom loved it! I sent this fruitcake to my Mom as a gift. She had been craving a good fruitcake, so I tried this one for her................and she said it was really, REALLY good!

I will send her another one for sure!Date published: 2017-01-01Rated 5 out of 5 by kristinelorraine from best fruitcake ever moist, chewy, and lots of nuts and fruits. though i wish they would add more wine for bolder flavor but otherwise this is a very delicious, fine-made fruitcake.Date published: 2016-05-08Rated 5 out of 5 by anotherfoodfan from should have ordered more I ordered before Christmas and ended up eating it almost all by myself!

What are the storage instructions for this fruit cake. Specifically, how long will it keep unopened in the refrigerator? Thank you.Hi NovaFitChick, Shelf life is two years or up to one year in the refrigerator after opening. Store in a cool, dry place before opening. After the seal is broken, keep fruitcake wrapped in the can and refrigerate to retain moisture.Date published: 2019-11-20
