Are people cool with fruitcake now? Cool enough that it's ready for spin-offs?Brach's just released a new candy for this Christmas season: Fruitcake Nougats. You might know Brach's Christmas Nougats . . . they're the little chewy mint candies with Christmas trees on them. And now there's a fruitcake-flavored version.
In many European folk tales, a family discovers that their child has been replaced with a changeling, a hideous, ill-tempered fairy baby. I think Brach's has a changeling on its hands. I have always loved their Christmas Nougats: wonderful white peppermint, gorgeous green wintergreen, and pretty pink cinnamon.
