Claxton, Ga.

Claxton, Ga.

If you're going to make a top-notch fruitcake, you might as well do it in Georgia, where you can't shake a stick without hitting a pecan tree. That's the theory in the tiny town of Claxton, co-fruitcake capital of the world, which boasts only 2,200 people but two high-volume fruitcake companies: Claxton Bakery, Inc. and Georgia Fruit Cake Company. They're both descended from an original bakery opened in 1910 by an Italian immigrant and pastry chef, Savino Tos, and together they produce more than six million pounds of fruitcake per year.
