Not for this Fruitcake Lover
I bought based on reviews seen on line. I knew this was not for me upon opening it. The color was pale and unappetizing and the consistency was sort of gummy. It tasted more like a rancid confection than a fine baked product. My wife hated it upon first bite and would not eat a second time. I gave it a couple of tries and ultimately doused it with more whiskey hoping to improve it. It just got more gummy and worse tasting. Today I threw away about 2 1/4 lbs of the 3 pounder I bought. I have purchased high-quality cakes from many sources for decades and this one stands out - at the bottom of the list.

my family and I think this is the best fruitcake we've ever eaten. someone complained there's too much liquor in it; but we want to taste the brandy and rum! don't change a thing with the ingredients. In fact, we'll reorder this fruitcake later this year. Can't wait until next Christmas to enjoy it again.

The very best fruitcake ever.
Finally found our dream Fruitcake. For years I have tried to find a fruitcake like grama would bring home from Boston and Figi's has it.
We can't praise it enough. Thank you Figi's...XO

The cake was moist but that is about the only plus it had. The liquor taste just overrode everything else and I am usually a fan of fruitcake with bourbon or brandy in it but not this one. I thought I would try it and now I have and I won't again. I'm back to my regular fruitcake supplier and won't be changing again. If I could rate it a -star I would.

I LOVE this fruit cake flavor!!! I can taste the brandy and it adds to the overall taste. It's so good that you should be careful how much you eat at a time, as it is very rich! One small slice will do it. Chucked full of fruits and nuts. I think this is the best fruit cake I've ever eaten. I will order again! I cut into 3 sections and froze part of it (wrapped in freezer bag appropriate) so it wouldn't go bad before I could eat it all.

This product was very good and moist.
Everyone in my family likes the fruit cake Dad was not willing to try it since he does not like fruit cake but after seeing it disappear so quickly he decided to give it a try and he loves it, says it is nothing like the others he has tried in the past that were dry and gross. He is now ready for me to order another one. A lot of folks thing their prices are a bit high but the quality of their food is well worth the price of it like the old saying goes you get what you pay for. I would recommend this fruit cake for any one to try it is the best I have ever had.
