Monday Memories: Sweet Tasting Fruit Cake

Today’s memory was published about a year ago, and this poem has been updated from its original form.  Taking this fruit cake down from the shelf, it is being re-gifted to you.  Enjoy!

Another Christmas is approaching, soon to be here

Sharing a delicious treat, makes one’s mission clear


Chef Benson’s “Old Home Classic” has been baked

Dashing to a local grocery, purchasing some to take


Christmas fruit cakes filling a shopping cart

Making each shopper feel clever and smart


Each cake is guaranteed to surprise and please

Weighing a full pound, taste buds will be teased


Each fruit cake is prepared with home-baked care

Allowing many, many others to send one to share


The highest quality ingredients go into every slice

Producing a rich sweetness that will likely entice


The special recipe includes ingredients plus yummy fruit

Filled with golden raisins, cherries, and pineapple to suit


Pecan and walnut pieces add much to the flavor

Tasting this delicious cake is something to savor


Each serving is filled with additional nutrition so great

Adding high fructose corn syrup, hunger meets its fate


Benson’s special fruit cake makes a great gift each year

Sending to family and special friends, far away and near


Every sweet box arrives without any expiration date

Re-gifting this cake to someone else, may be its fate


This delectable fruit cake is just waiting for someone to taste!
