MPs consider switching to fruitcakes in House of Commons cafe
A café in the House of Commons is ordering in more fruitcakes after signs they are becoming increasingly popular among MPs.
The treats, which look very appealing on the outside yet taste more or less like every other cake once you take a bite, have been dominating lunchtime debates and water cooler chats for many months now.
Many MPs, who previously opted for cakes with added fruit, have been considering switching to fruitcakes instead.
An anonymous MP wearing a blue tie told the Doodle Slug: “It’s good to finally have the option of something different to eat.
“Beforehand I had to put up with the cakes-as-usual treats, with their bland insides masked by tasty looking fruit on the outside.
“Now its nice to see some cakes with some really tasty looking fruit on the outside. I’m sure these ones will taste a lot better when we eat them.”
Sources confirm the fruitcakes are supplied by British-owned savoury company Trick and Treat, who run their operations through a base in the Jersey islands. The company has supplied many other types of cakes to the café in the past, all of which taste relatively similar.
Meanwhile, employees said no one is paying attention to the cafe’s free range eggs and Fairtrade muesli.
