NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - Just like diamonds, fruitcakes are forever.

Always have been.  Always will be.

That means another ooey, gooey fruitcake season is here according to WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood.

In New Orleans, Baker Maid Bakery is home to about 100,000 fruitcakes every season.  They have a long history of being the oldest fruitcake factory in New Orleans.

And they know that on the list of re-gifting, the classic fruitcake comes in at number eight.

When people don't eat them and they don't give them away, what in the world do that do with them?

Sometimes, some people sleep with a fruitcake under their pillow.  As the legend goes, when you do that, you dream of your true love.
