M&S Melting Middle Chocolate Puddings

I do a lot of work for M&S, they're one of my biggest clients so obviously I love them. The other night, when Robert made a lovely annual dinner for me, he bought those chocolate puddings. They've been on telly a lot you know, those "not just any sodding pudding etc" and Rob clearly knows I like chocolate. Anyway all the reviews say they're amazing. They do look amazing, all brown and oozy but they don't actually taste of chocolate. Mine was nice and warm and came with a scoop of fabulous Mackies ice cream on the side. But it didn't taste like chocolate. It maybe tasted a bit of cocoa but really, close your eyes and you could be eating bread pudding. Anyone else had one? Am I wrong?

I was Gutted and I mean GUTTED when finally I tried these. They are nice, but not as amazing as I had hoped from the ads.

wot you said. I had to pretend to like them a whole lot more than i actually did to save the experience from being disappointing

I've always found them a bit bland too, a bit like a cocoa flavoured suet pudding if you microwave them (I don't have a microwave anymore/haven't bought one since I moved into my own home).

Speaking of Mackies and ice cream, I've been working my way through a 2 litres for the price of one tub vanilla flavour. The fact that I bought it inmy local Co-Op store cheered me no end. They seem to stock some nice stuff these days in the Co-Op without the hefty price of some other supermarkets.

I love their ice creams - the Bramley Apple one is very, very nice indeed. I highly recommend it. Actually loads of their Truly Irresistably range is really nice.

I'm glad we're all in agreement!

Alex cocoa-flavoures suet pudding is spot on. Thanks for the co-op ice cream recommendation - i will check them out.

Nero - I know, I've foolishly bitten the hand that feeds me.

Hated them. Was near to tears when I tasted the gloopy mess. I turned straight to Nigella Lawson's Feast and made the Malteser Cake. That made me feel MUCH better.

Dopo le droghe come Viagra e Cialis ha rivoluzionato il trattamento di disfunzione sessuale maschio verso la fine degli anni 90, un turbine di neve dei test clinici sono stati condotti in donne nelle speranze che le droghe potrebbero fare lo stessi per fare rivivere l'azionamento di sesso diminuente della donna.
