That’s why we get so excited to hear stories of how our humble bakery has become a part of your Christmas traditions.

Take baby Charlie for example! When he was just a wee tot, his dad treated him to a slice of our DeLuxe® Fruitcake. Charlie loved it SO much, the next Christmas, his dad treated him to another slice. Then another slice... and another!!

Every year after, Charlie and his dad captured these moments on tape. Compiling them all together, they decided to share this video with us - Charlie and his dad, noshing on their tradish Christmas dish: our DeLuxe® Fruitcake!

We used to live in Corsicana when I was 5 years old and my mom since 1949 bought us a fruit cake every year from this company, even though we moved away living in many other states! my mother passed away in 2013 at almost 92 and keeping tradition we still buy this delicious fruit cake.

I surely hope Jack's comment isn't true for many. I have my grocery shelves stacked with cakes for presents to many friends. Have been ordering them since 1987 for my family and as gifts. Never one complaint. Please say you just had an off day with your taste buds, Jack. Get well.

I ordered a medium fruit cake for Christmas, I received it today and it had no lid. After it is opened how does it stay fresh in the freezer?

I sent a text about my order not containing a lid that I received on 12/09. This is the first time I ordered from you and it is around Christmas and taking that into consideration I will order again. However I would like to know how do I keep my fruit cake fresh in the freezer.

My neighbor/great friend just brought me 3 pieces of your Fruitcake to enjoy. I have purchased two that are on their way. Wow - outstanding fruitcake that is the most delicious treat I have ever eaten. I had to refrain from eating another piece and have saved it for later. Hope delivery won’ t take too long so I can share my fruitcake, too. I know I will be happy with my purchase. Thanks for being the best!

In 1994, I was driving from Michigan to Conroe, TX to visit my sister. I had my 12 year old and 9 month old sons with me. Along the way, I kept seeing signs for World Famous Collin Street Bakery. I had never likeed fruitcake but I wanted to stop and take a break, and pick up some other goodies to take to my sister's. It was in the original bakery and I can still remember the wooden floor. As I was walking around, my 12 year old Ben spied a tiered cake stand near the fruitcake display, with a tower of bite size samples. He took a bite, his face lit up, he took a second bite, and I told him, just a few, those are for everyone. I got busy with a clerk picking out cookies and other things, and when I went back to Ben with my bag full of goodies, he had eaten that entire display of samples. I felt so guilty I went back and purchased a large original delux to take home. I didn't taste it until I got home and realized why he ate the entire display of samples, it was the best thing I have ever tasted. To this day, every year I order fruitcakes for my family, as gifts for friends, and have turned more than one fruitcake hater into a fruit cake lover of Collin's fruitcakes.

I received my first fruitcake as a gift from a gentleman from Scotland that I met in Savannah Georgia that came through who was working on a ship over 40 years ago! I didn’t even like fruitcake, but after tasting it, my entire family and many friends have ordered since then and have become a dedicated Christmas tradition. Ian sure we have ordered over 100 fruitcakes.

I always add 1/3 cup Brandy or Rum to the cake as soon as it arrives, then again a week later....after the cake has soaked the alcohol it is to die for! Delicious!

Every year my Texas friend Rowena would send me a Collin St fruit cake and every year I would re gift it to my Italian friend. One year I had just made fresh coffee when the fruit cake arrived, so we opened it and tried it. Never again have I given it up to anyone, but happily share it around my holiday table with others.

At first I thought the fruitcakes were only seasonal. When I found out I could get them year round, I was in fruitcake heaven! Sometimes I other 2 and 3 times a year!

I watched the video of the little boy and his daddy enjoying fruitcake. My grandmother and I shared that love of your cakes. There were many times over the course of 20 yrs we made the trip to Corsicana just for one. We would treat ourselves to the pecan praline lace cookies and carry home the fruitcake. The deal was, we were buying for the next holiday season. She would open the cake and wrap cheese cloth around it and start the process of dosing the cake with whiskey. By the time Christmas rolled back around, it was perfectly seasoned to be enjoyed. At first I sat there watching with a huge smile on my face watching as the years went by with them enjoying your fruit cake. But then my smile faded into tears...sobs. How I miss those times with her. I have since instilled the love of fruit cake in my daughter. We also have enjoyed your cakes at the holidays. Even when we lived out of state we ordered online. I hope to make it by the bakery on my way to her town this Christmas season. It wouldnt be the same without sharing a cake with her. Thank you so much for all the wonderful memories. I have enjoyed your cakes for over 40 yrs!!
