Product Reviews

  • fruitcake

  • I love fruitcake and have eaten a lot of it in my life. However, this was the best fruitcake I have ever had.

  • Best Fruitcake Ever!

  • This is not your ordinary Fruitcake. I normally do not like these cakes but, Monastery Fruitcakes are very GOOD. Would make wonderful gifts.

  • Posted by Mary Padgett on Aug 13, 2015
  • A lovely cake

  • My mother, to whom we sent the cake, said it was rich and delicious--a small piece at a time, with tea or coffee, was a real treat. She also said the bakers didn't stint on the brandy! Thank you all.

  • I'm the Only in Our Hosuehold Who Likes Fruitcake

  • Since I'm the only one in our home who likes fruitcake, every November I order the one pound "Trappist Abbey Our Lady of Guadalupe" fruitcake for my myself. I'm careful to enjoy it for a while, so I cut a piece only about 1/4" thick have it for about a month. It's the best, so moist and "heavyweight" with all the good fruits and walnuts of a delectable cake.

  • Wonderful service/tasty product

  • This was a gift for my husband. The fruitcake was amazing. Service was excellent. Thanks for making it easy to support our church!

  • Delicious

  • I've been purchasing fruit cake for my mom from several "brand" name gourmet stores. This year I purchased from Monastery Greetings and my mom said this was the best fruit cake she's ever tasted. I'll definitely be purchasing from Monastery Greetings again.

  • Dried fruit-Candied fruit

  • It is probably my own fault but I read the description and assumed dried fruit meant dried fruit, not candied fruit. I should have looked more closely at the picture. Would be great if I liked candied fruit but I don't. However, it is a good moist cake.

  • Brandy Fruitcake

  • This fruitcake was the best I've had since I was a child when each Christ- mas we were given a special homemade brandy fruitcake. Next time I will buy a 2 or 3 lb. cake.

  • fruitcake

  • Best fruitcake ever! We were not able to find a really good one for decades. The company we dealt with cheapened the product to something dry and mostly cake.

  • Posted by Diane M. on Oct 25, 2016
  • Good Stuff

  • this fruitcake was real good. the only problem is I only ordered a one pound cake, I should have ordered a bigger one.

  • Posted by Leo B. on Oct 25, 2016
  • Brandy fruitcake

  • The fruitcake was indeed heavenly! The perfect tea time treat!

  • Posted by Roxanne K. on Nov 5, 2016
  • Maybe the Best Fruit Cake Around

  • I buy this fruitcake once a year because I'm a heart patient and must watch the fat content, so I treat myself to the best fruitcake that I know!

  • Posted by Stanley M on Dec 3, 2016
  • One Christmas Tradition

  • Every year for the past several, I have gotten the one pound Brandy fruitcake. It is just enough to get me through the season and it is always, always good!

  • Posted by LaMon B. on Dec 12, 2016
  • Abbey Brandy Fruitcake

  • It has become our family tradition to order this fruitcake for many years. It is the closest to my great-great grandmother's recipe that we have found. We always wait to slice it on Christmas morning after all the presents are open.Just wouldn't be Christmas without it.

  • Very pleased with the fruitcakes

  • The best fruitcake I ever tasted! Very rich, moist and fresh. I hope next time you will make them a little bigger! I will highly recommend this product to anyone.

  • Posted by LuzMaria on Jan 16, 2017
  • Really good fruitcake!

  • I really love this fruitcake and you could actually taste the brandy. It is so rich that I would have only a very small piece each night. I purchased my second Abbey's fruitcake from Amazon. For some reason the one I bought directly from the Abbey's online store tasted better...not sure why. Anyway, I highly recommend this cake and well worth the price.

  • Posted by Anthony on Jan 31, 2017
  • A gift they'll welcome!

  • This is the only fruitcake I will buy. The balance of flavors and density of fruit is perfect and the liquor is a plus. I buy it for friends and I buy it for myself. You won't be disappointed!

  • Posted by NORMAN S. on Mar 2, 2018
  • WOW!

  • These brandy fruitcakes from the Monastery are the best fruitcakes EVER! All of the people to whom I sent these fruitcakes last Christmas are just waiting, hoping for another one. I'll place my group order early so that we don't miss getting them this year. Many thanks for a delicious treat.

  • Excellent Fruitcake

  • Just the right amount of Fruit and Nuts. Not a lot of dough in this cake and that's what I like about the Best. Well the Brandy maybe the BEST PART. LOL. Keep Baking! I'll be BACK.

  • Posted by Ed V. on Apr 5, 2019
  • Great company

  • I just don't like fruitcake, that is until I bought the one lb. one. So good I hated to have to share it. Will buy again for sure, and not just around the holidays.
