Antique Fruitcake Sells for $525

Most food products quickly depreciate in value, but not fruitcakes! Consider diversifying your investment portfolio with one. After seventy years, you can sell it at a high price:

Elite Estate Group sold the cake in an auction on its website. Company owner Larry Chaney says the man, who wanted to remain anonymous, probably bought the cake as an investment. [...]

The cake was made in 1941 by The Kroger Co. It was returned unopened to a Kroger store in 1971. The manager took it home and kept it until recently when his son was helping him get rid of some things and gave the cake to Chaney.
