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.
