If you re looking for a gift to give during the winter holidays, you might try a Claxton Fruit Cake. This company has been producing these holiday treats since 1910, when the townspeople of the small south Georgia community of Claxton saw the business open its doors. The bakery opened under the ownership of Savino Tos, an Italian pastry-maker, who immigrated to the United States in the early 1900s. The Claxton Bakery was an instant success with the townsfolk, who flocked to the small shop for delicious baked goods and homemade ice cream. Today, the Claxton Bakery services the fund-raising needs of more than 1,000 organizations throughout North America. Claxton Fruit Cakes are also available through many national chains during the holiday season. The company is privately-owned and maintains headquarters in Claxton, Ga.
