What do Fruitcakes and Bernie Sanders have in common? Beyond the fact they are both from Vermont, Fruitcakes and Bernie are saddled with misleading associations. Mention "fruitcake" and most folks recall the dense doorstops of faux food of their youth. Mention "Bernie Sanders" and many people equate socialism with communism. Neither of these assumptions are true. Cavendish Fruitcake is made from real, unadulterated fruits and nuts and honey, never red nor green bits. Bernie has unflagging committment to his ideals of social justice and a shared prosperity.
