Have you ever given or received a fruitcake?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on December 7, 2005
“Yes, both. It’s been a long time since I’ve received one, but I recently gave one to a friend who said he liked them as sort of a joke.”
“No, but I hear they make a great doorstop.”
“No. I ate it when I was a kid, but I never really liked it. Maybe it’s an acquired taste.”
“No, I never have. I like fruitcake, but I wouldn’t buy it for a gift, and nobody ever gives it to me.”
