A True Crime Story About Money & Fruitcake 

Collin Street Bakery’s embezzlement scandal is in the news again. But this time, it’s a good thing! Recently, the Bakery was featured on Discovery+’s newest true-crime documentary, “Fruitcake Fraud.” What the show's trailer down below!

Watch the Trailer Here

The show follows FBI agent Christine Edson and her colleagues as they look back on the nearly decade-long embezzlement scheme undertaken by Sandy Jenkins, the bakery’s accountant. Sandy, who used his position as the keeper of the bakery’s financial keys to fuel an opulent lifestyle complete with pricey cars, high-end watches, and a luxurious Santa Fe home, stole close to 17 million dollars from the Bakery. His 9-year spending spree continued until 2013 when federal agents knocked on his door. Even though Sandy was caught, that didn’t stop him from one last attempt at salvaging his ill-gotten gains. Greed, as they say, is one devilish demon. 

The 90-minute exposé, which launched in early December 2021, has received a five-star rating on Amazon and an onslaught of rave reviews from the media and viewers alike. Check out just a handful of publications singing the show’s praises:

 

“STREAM IT. Fruitcake Fraud may leave you wondering just how an entire $30 million enterprise could be fleeced for so long and so much money, but the story about how Jenkins got caught and how he and his wife spent their ill-gotten funds is entertaining enough to get past that.” - Decider

 

“Whether you are a fruitcake fan or pass that holiday dessert onto someone else, Fruitcake Fraud on Discovery+ is a delicacy to savor this holiday season.” - Food Sided

 

“Fruitcake Fraud… [is] an FBI case that truly takes the cake.” E! Online

 

“...perfect for the holidays! - Pop Culture

 

“A festive story of fraud…” - Mashed

I am 82 years old and. have been ordering Collins fruit cakes for many many years. We have been ordering for our children for years. This is the first year in all that time that I have been disappointed. Our cake was very good. Some of our Children's were soft and crumbly. I was shocked. I hope the problem has been corrected ...not sure about ordering next Christmas. Being grown with their own families they may not pass on this tradition with their children. thank you.

Have been reading comments about the Blonde fruit cake from this year (2021) and I sent my own in. Looks like I'm not the only one who was disappointed. Is there any way to check if our, the complainers, fruitcakes came from the same batch? Since several of us had the same comments about dryness and odd tasting nuts it might be worth a follow-up. Those issues are so NOT typical of Collin Street Bakery.

Working on the second fruitcake now. The Fruitcake Fraud documentary was very well produced. My heart goes out to everyone that was hurt by Sandy's crimes.

Since 1975, I have sent a Collin St Bakery fruitcake yearly to the host family I lived with in Japan as a university exchange student. That's almost five decades! Of course, I also order one for my own family. Everyone here and abroad loves eating the nutty goodness. I don't like candied fruit but the balance in Collin St Bakery's fruitcake is perfect. The pecans are a delight. One year we sent the blonde cake but we switched back to the regular. It's a winner, every single time!

My wife and I have found your apricot pecan cake to be dreamy. It could not be better. This year I ordered the cake and some pecans. On a whim, I added pineapple bites. OMG!!! They were fabulous. So, having no other reasonable choice, I ordered the pineapple pecan cake. Five days later, reading reviews on the site, I felt compelled to order the fudge cake. In the meantime, by some glorious divine plan, you accidentally sent my first order again! I wish I were a runner, like Cam McKinney, above.

I've developed Celiac condition recently, so the gluten free fruitcake hopefully will be the answer for me. I've eaten many different fruitcakes through the years, and never tasted one I did not like. Collins Street fruitcakes are good, as they all are, but none compares to my grandmother's and my mother's fruitcakes, no ifs, ands, or buts! Sadly, they've both been gone, now for several years, so Collins Street will have to fill their shoes, and Collins Street is up to the task!

I put an order in for your fruitcake, after I read an article naming Collins as one of the two oldest, most famous fruitcakes in the U.S. I am the only one in my family who likes fruitcakes. I've heard all the jokes that run down fruitcakes, and know they are very out of fashion. But around Xmas time I just hanker for them. Yes they are too rich, too sweet, and go down like a brick. But if you eat only a small piece once a day it satisfies an urge for the rich and sweet. It says something about the owners of Collin Street that they can be philosophical about the embezzlement, and in fact share the notoriety with us. I worked for 20+ years in the town of Dixon, IL, and only several years ago it was discovered that the town comptroller had been embezzling funds for decades to the tune of $50 million. So, it is unfortunately a universal story. There are always going to be very charming thieves and parasites among us.

There are directions to add alcohol to the fruitcake yourself… but don’t think you ca. Purchase them with “booz”. Collin Street fruitcakes have been part of our family holiday tradition for over 40 years..have never received a dry or a gummy cake… my sister in law isn’t a fruitcake fan but my brother has to guard his cake or she will pick out the pecans… which these cakes are chock full of

I have eaten this fruitcake for decades as my husband requests it every year. The original fruitcake has always been absolutely wonderful! This year when they offered a gluten free version I decided to order it as I personally eat gf 95% of the time. When we got it I tried it and gave a piece to my husband who said it didn’t taste like fruitcake at all. I have to admit it was very dry which is pretty typical of most gluten free baked goods. I’ve had plenty of occasions to try them over the past 30 years. When Collin Street asked for my opinion about the gf version I had to tell them the truth and they very gladly and quickly replaced it with the regular version I requested. Im wondering if those of you who said your cake was dry got a gf one by mistake. As I said, the original fruitcake has always been and continues to be perfect!

My best friend has given me one of your large fruitcake for at least ten years now and every year they have been delicious. This year for some reason my cake was under cooked and some of the nuts tasted stale, other than that it was perfect. I will be putting in my own order to try some of the other cakes. Why do you have to make them so good. As John Mike stated above, I am also a type 2 diabetic and my blood sugars are always normal even after my physician took me off of my medication over a year ago. P.S, It only takes me four days to eat a large cake. Keep up the great work.

My mom made her own fruitcakes for a number of years, until she discovered that it was cheaper to buy them pre-made. For a long time, she (and I) bought Jane Parker cakes from the old A&P stores, but they disappeared from this area many years back. I can't recall when she and I discovered your version, which are even better than the Jane Parkers, but I've been ordering them for over thirty years now. Sorry about your accountant; but your cakes are still excellent! Keep up the good work. (And I've never had a bad one.)

I was quite disappointed tht the cake although good was differnt thi year. Just nmot the same. Crumbly and and just not the same taste. I also was disappointmed that I could not order the Apricot cake along with the other cakes I ordered . I was told to call back and place it as a seperate order in a few days. I then ordred the Pineapple which again was just not up to the quality I have come to expect.

I ordered two of your fruit cakes right before Christmas. I used to help my Mother make these at home. I was surprised that the cake batter was so dark. There was not enough batter for the amount of pecans in it. You mostly just tasted pecans, which were good, but just too many in this small cake. We had started to crumble the pecans in very small pieces and just put the whole ones on top. The cake was good. I'm not so sure I would want another one like what I got. I might try a different one. I want to taste the solid part of the cake too.
