So my brother sent me a text message with an image attached. It was a picture of a can of Spotted Dick. We both had a good chuckle at that. Tonight, we were discussing it on the phone and I decided to do a search to find out exactly what spotted dick is.
Here is what I found.
It seems this delightful treat is a pudding of sorts. Apparently, it is British, so not what we Americans would call pudding.
What struck me as even more entertaining than the product, though, were the testimonials from those who had tried spotted dick. Please...read for yourself (but be sure to put down your drink so you don't spit while reading!)
Andrea says it is quite tasty...
After seeing this product on the shelf for awhile, I got the nerve up to buy it. After the grocery checker and I had a good laugh, I took it home, heated it up in the microwave and was pleasantly surprised how tasty Spotted Dick is. It was so moist and the flavors reminded me of the holidays. I definitely will include this tasty treat at our holiday dinners!
Dawn says it's the best dick...
This was the first time I’ve had the Heinz Spotted Dick and must say in was rather tasty. I’ve tasted other Spotted Dick but found them to be dry to my taste buds. Raisins were plumb. However I too wish it had nuts.
and, finally, Kelly says...
For a dessert item that sounds like a problem that would cause you to rush to the Doctor for treatment Spotted Dick was pretty good. We purchased the 10.7oz Heinz can and tried it one night while playing gin rummy.... This "pudding" which is more like a cake was very tasty and had all the right ingredients. My wife would have preferred nuts over raisins but everything else was great.
So, go on out and get some spotted dick and give it a try. I anxiously await YOUR review!
