Oh my! Spotted Dick? Really? That’s edible? This is something you serve to people? As I was strolling through the international aisle at my local supermarket I came across this.
Holding in my laughter I quickly took out my camera phone and took a pic. I have never heard of such a thing nor is it something I would put in my mouth either. I found it funny that Heinz couldn’t call it something else. I came home and did a quick Google search (surprised no dirty pictures came up) and found that this fine delicacy is a sponge pudding with dried fruit in it. Its a dessert English folks like to get down on.
Did I buy some to try? No not at all…the name was enough for me to make me gag a little. Might be a great treat to bring to a dinner party though. Would you try some?
