Claxton: Fruit Cake Capital of the World.

I was lucky enough to visit the Claxton Fruit Cake Factory. Today, a family run business, originally founded by an Italian. Claxton Fruitcake is not only what an edible Xmas is all about, forget the Turkey, but it is also a link to the military and all the good deeds that the Fruitcake Company carry out for them.

Check out the website that gives more in depth knowledge: http://www.claxtonfruitcake.com/

I just wished they had at the factory location perhaps a room giving the history of the company from its early days onwards, to its ongoing involvement with the military.

I am not affiliated or paid for this endorsement. I just love fruitcake and the support that the company has for the military.

Christmas is just not the same without Claxton fruitcake.

I missed this when you posted it back in July. I grew up here in Claxton, and the Parker family which owns the Claxton Fruitcake Company are very nice people.

You are correct, the business was originally founded by Mr. Tos many, many years ago.

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip through Claxton and Evans County. Please come again!
