Does the recipe for Claxton fruit cakes ever change

The recipe for quality never changes. That's why Claxton Fruit Cakes remain consistently delicious. Claxton Fruit cakes are approximately 72% "choice fruits and nuts", one of the highest such standards in the industry.

What is the difference between the "Regular" recipe and the "Dark" recipe and which is more popular?

The "Regular" fruit cake recipe, a traditional favorite, is more popular than the "Dark" variety; however, the "Dark" cakes contain the same high quality fruit-and-nut content. The difference lies in the molasses, spices and natural, sun-ripened raisins, which give the "Dark" cakes their distinctive darker color. The "Regular" fruit cakes feature golden raisins and imitation rum flavoring. The "Regular" recipe outsells the "Dark" by approximately eight-to one, but both offer fruit cake "at its Claxton best!"

What is the recommended serving instructions for Claxton Fruit Cake?

We advise our customers to thoroughly chill the fruit cakes before slicing and serving. A sharp knife, moistened by a wet cloth, should be used to slice each cake. Whipped cream or a scoop of ice-cream makes a great topping. Of course, a hot cup of coffee serves as the perfect complement to a hearty slice of Claxton Fruit Cake.

What is the average shelf-life of a Claxton Fruit Cake?

Under normal conditions, Claxton fruit cakes have a shelf-life of approximately four months. For extended keeping, we advise placing the cakes in a refrigerator. Claxton fruit cake may also be frozen.
