The ovens don't run much in the summer but we learned that during peak production, the factory produces 90,000 lbs of fruitcake daily. Wow!

Fruitcake Capital of the World

Claxton is known as the "Fruitcake Capital of the World, " a claim also made by Corsicana, Texas. The Claxton Fruitcake Co. used to offer free tours of their bakery, but insurance concerns ended that. You can still look in the front windows of the production area at seven huge fruitcake ovens in action. Claxton Fruit Cake was the only fruit cake exhibited at the New York World's Fair in 1964-65.
