  1. aha! is that how bad? ouch… too bad for ur 12.99! i’ve hd my share of that experience too when i was still pregnant with my daughter and i was really craving for this so nice-looking fruitcake at jewel-osco but when i had it, it tasted just like sugar too. i was very frustrated that i threw it, and just lie u, my 7.99 was garbaged. tsk tsk tsk!

  6. I don’t know too many people who actually do enjoy fruitcake, but one piece of advice, never buy canned or pre-made fruitcakes. Only go for the homemade ones. Sorry your money went down the drain on this one. πŸ™

  7. yeah, i don’t know why i grabbed this actually. it’s packaged well and i got hooked by looking. thanks for the tip.

  8. THE REVIEWER IS VERY WRONG ABOUT THE KIRKLAND COSTCO FRUITCAKE. YES, “IT TASTES LIKE SUGAR”…MEANING IT IS SWEET…BUT IT TASTES MORE LIKE GREEN AND RED MARASCHINO CHERRIES….SWEET, SOFT AND “LIQUIDY”. YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE BITE TO APPRECIATE THIS FRUITCAKE. FOR ME THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST….WITH ALOT OF FRUIT…THEY ARE NOT STINGY WITH THE CHERRIES AND PINEAPPLE AND PECANS!!! TRY IT, I THINK YOU’LL LIKE IT!!! BOLAND7214@AOL.COM

    I wrote this post based on my own personal experience. I bought it and already tasted it so there’s no question about me not liking it. I’m the reviewer and NOBODY paid me to review it. I’m stating my own personal opinion (AND I BELIEVE I’M ENTITLED TO IT) in the same token that NO ONE SHOULD DROP BY MY BLOG AND WRITE THAT I’M WRONG about a product that I personally bought..

    I just don’t like the taste. I’ve had far better fruit cakes than this period. It does not suit my palate. I SIMPLY DON’T LIKE IT.

  10. I searched on Google to buy this fruitcake… and found your blog, listed right near the top of the search of the list.

    I had a piece of this cake and really liked it… tne buttery bite and large cherries were very good…. seemed like really good quality.

    So, I have a question for Juliana, … if you’ve had far better cakes than the Kirkland one, then can you tell us what that one is?

    Until I find a better one, this Kirkland fruit cake is the best I’ve ever tasted.

    oh, that’s great if this fruitcake matched your taste.

    as I’ve mentioned on my post, I’m using as benchmark the homemade English recipe of the mother of my friend. that is the one and only fruitcake that I have grown to love and like. having said that, I haven’t found any commercial fruitcake that can match that English recipe. I’ve tried bakery fruitcakes from our neighborhood and they are far better than the Costco fruitcake but I’m not quite satisfied with them thus, I have altogether stopped trying to look for one because of the overwhelmingly sweet taste.

  12. Haha! I wonder if anyone here is still around. Inlaws brought this exact cake to my place for dinner last night. My god. It was the worst fruit cake of my life. In fact, it was the worst desert of my life. Just disgusting. Large green and red maraschino cherries, soft pecans, and the dough – not a dough, but some kind of raw-ish flour and stale maple syrup mixture. So bad. The worst thing in the world. So bad that I had to tell everyone I know, so I googled “horrible costco fruitcake” and found this post. Haha! People actually like it!
