vapidintuition your comment hit the nail on the head!.... I would think we had fresher, far better ingredients these days due to refrigeration etc... Maybe we're just sore losers.....nah, it can't be that!! :true:

Outside of the choices available, I would have guessed that the popularity of fruitcake has died out due to the year-round availability of fresh fruits and nuts.

I'm not really trying to complain or anything, but question 3 is sort of relies on speculation, and any of the three answers could be correct. The quality of the ingredients has changed in some fruitcakes, but a person can still make a fruitcake with the best and freshest ingredients, and people will not like it because tastes have changed over the years. I mean, the whole definition of "Sweets" has changed since then. People don't rely on honey and maple syrup and dried fruit and roasted nuts for flavour anymore. Compare a twinkie to a fruitcake, and I know more people that would take the twinkie and leave the fruitcake. I'm just sayin.
