Prefer Your Fruitcake Aged?

 

Aged, as in over 100 years?  A fruitcake said to have been about 106 years old was recently discovered in near-edible condition by conservators in Antartica.

 

 

The New Zealand-based Antarctic Heritage Trust uncovered a rusted iron alloy tin in Cape Adare containing the fruitcake which could be at least 106 years old.

 

 

Conservators said the tin was in poor condition, but the paper wrapping was largely intact and the fruitcake nearly looked and smelled edible.
