I like fruitcake as long as it doesn't have a lot of strange fruit in it. I like dates, candied cherries, raisins, and walnuts. So that limits a lot fruitcakes although I have changed recipes to suit my taste. I also like graham crackers, so when I found this on the cracker box years ago, I had to try it. I liked it.
