Fruitcake Makes A Cultural Comeback as This Year’s Holiday "It" Gift
We know the holidays can be a stressful time. On top of quotas that need to be met and reports that need to be finished, there’s a shopping gift list at least a mile long. It feels like there are a million people to buy for: mom, dad, the next-door neighbor, the dog, and that’s not to mention everyone at the office. What do you get Marjory in accounting? - You’ve only ever spoken to her once, for heaven’s sake!
But before you dive under the duvet to hide from the world till January 1st, take a deep breath. While we can’t help decorate your Christmas tree or cook that holiday turkey, we can help you with all your corporate gift-giving needs. Some smarty-pants nerds in the back have been busy crunching numbers to help you determine this season’s most popular ‘it’ gift perfect for your entire staff. What is this magical gift for employees? Fruitcake!
Now before you roll your eyes, hear us out. For a while now, fruitcake has been preparing to make a cultural comeback. In fact, in recent years fruitcake sales have been shooting through the roof! In the last three years alone, our DeLuxe® has gone from being available in 150 stores in 15 states in 2017 to over 2,000 stores in 22 states in 2020. That’s an increase of over 1200%! If this doesn’t go to show how much people want to get their hands on our delicious DeLuxe®, then we don’t know what is.
Okay, yes. We can hear you gearing up with your fruitcakes jokes. And let us tell you, we’ve already heard them all. “Fruitcake is a doorstop. Fruitcake is a brick.” Perhaps the most famous joke being from a well-known late-night talk show host, a one Mr. Johnny Carson. He once poked fun about how there’s only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people just regift it to others.
Well, we aren’t quite certain what fruitcake put such a bad taste in his mouth, but we know for certain, it wasn’t our DeLuxe®. We have been making our fruitcake for over 125 years; you don’t stay in business for over a century without being really, really good, and making some dang good cake. Need some additional convincing? We’ve got some more reasons locked and loaded why fruitcake makes unique employee appreciation gifts.
