Evonne Morken, 83, of Spring Grove had her fill of people slamming fruitcakes when she wrote a letter to the Winona Daily News suggesting that the fruitcake IQ of this region isn’t cutting it.
But she didn’t stop there. She said if people get fruitcake for the holidays and don’t want it, she’ll take it.
She hasn’t gotten a single one, according to the Rochester Post Bulletin.
None of her children make fruitcakes, and her husband, Glenn Morken, also eschews fruitcakes.
Evonne Morken’s last taste of fruitcake came after she bought one at Quillin’s grocery store in Caledonia a few years ago. “It lasted me a whole year,” she said.
After that, it’s been a fruitcake famine.
But Morken is hoping that someone out there has an extra fruitcake she might have.
She can’t make her own fruitcake anymore; arthritis has taken its toll.
Do that thing you do, Internet.
