Just visited the Georgia Fruitcake Co. in Claxton. A very nice person behind the counter offered free samples. A real sweet slice of Americana. Best of all, the town's water tower proudly boasts "Fruitcake Capital of the World." How nutty is that?

They make 5 million pounds of fruit cake from Labor Day until Christmas. They have samples if you ask. I'd love to see it in full swing.

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!

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.
