Favorite Paneton

Postby Slippin' Jimmy » Tue Dec 04, 2018 11:25 am

Well, boys and girls, now that the calendar has rolled into December and Papa Noel will be sliding down the chimney soon, it's time to discuss that wonderful rubberized fruit sensation that we all know and love.
So, do you have a favorite that you prefer?
Personally, I prefer whatever is on sale since I usually end up dunking it in a cup of Nescafe.

On the same note as Jimmy, about Christmas cakes....what about the traditional gringo type English/Australian/American fruit cakes with icing.

Does anyone know if and where they maybe imported & sold in Lima ?
Oh yes, and plum puddings also ???

Not a big fan of panetone. :-(...yet!!

Cheers,
W

Re Fruit cake
Maybe you could bake your own if you can find the ingredients.
I love a good fruitcake but only if it's loaded with rum.
What's up with using a thimble full?
Come on, folks. It's the holidays for crying out loud.
Dump half the bottle in it.
You gotta pickle it to preserve it to eat later.

I like all kind of Paneton, I think the cheap one that you can buy as "Metro" at the supermarket is a good option.

Drinking a cup of chocolate-con-leche + paneton is a great combination !

Also eating some slides of Turkey + pure de manzana

D'Onofrio - if you can't fork out a bit extra for a classic brand then why bother?

I can't eat the rubberized fruit. I can eat raisins.

My gf her mother makes panetons herself. She always makes one for me which only contains raisins.

Actually not fruit at all, but colored and flavored watermelon rind!
