Well, you can in Detroit:

We're partial to Collin Street Bakery fruitcakes from Corsicana, Texas.
However, last year we made them using the recipe in Joy of Cooking. Not
difficult at all and the results were tasty.

Howdy!
I agree, Nann. We Cruise down there about this time of year,
pick up a couple of fruit cakes, sample the other goodies in the bakery,
and marvel at the best public restrooms we've ever seen--at the bakery. <G>

Ragmop/Sandy--once, while living out of state, I called Collin St. Bakery
to order a cake, and to hear someone talk Texas <g>

Sorry, Buddy. Ragmop/Sandy has us all brainwashed to buy only the Corsicana
fruitcake. Actually, I was brainwashed before I met R/S. mmmgood.

I smell a fruitcake swap getting started!!!! I make a great fruitcake (so I
am told) and I make about 20 of them every year for Christmas. Don't you
know that I usually end up giving away the one I make for our house because
someone begs until I give in.

Jane Parker FC's were orginal made and sold by the A&P store chains. Jane
Parker I believe was a trade name for their products. I don't know if these
stores are any where around now. They were here in our town and state. Hope
you find them. Betty

I remember Ann Page being a trade mark for the A&P products. Anyone else
remember this?

I do this too! My chocolate Christmas Cake recipe is on my web site.
For those who have yet to visit, there are several Christmas, bread, and
other recipes on the food pages.

Hi, I worked for the A & P for years. Ann Page is/was one of the
store brands. The fruitcake was definitely Jane Parker, another of
the A & P brands, AFAIK

Hello! I was searching through old blogs and came across your request for a Jane Parker Fruit Cake. Good news, this year, 2017 The Jane Parker Fruit Cake brand is back. We have recently purchased the brand and all of the original recipes from the A&P bankruptcy and are happy to say we are making this iconic fruit cake brand once again. You can see the full line of Jane Parker Fruit Cakes at www.janeparker.com

Thank you!
