Seen At The Supermarket This Morning ...


Spotted Dick Sponge Pudding? hee hee

Hmmm ... I was afraid to ask! Expensive stuff, too. $5.99 a can!

Anyone know what this stuff is?

It's a British pudding. I wouldn't worry about it. :)

Amira said...

Ya weird eh? I heard it in a movie once Shanghi Knights where they go to England. The main character Own Wilson obviously has a good laugh about that one.

I think the name goes back quite a ways. I did come across a BBC article a while ago about some hotel in the southern part of England changing the name on their menus to "Spotted Richard" in order to stave off the snickers. I don't think it'll ever catch on, though.

As-salaamu 'alaikum,

It's a suet pudding with sultanas, a traditional recipe in northern England, I think.

It's a pudding, and like anything named 'dick', it's English.

YaelH. Yeah, I saw where they tried to change it, too. Guess it didn't stick, lol

Rukhpar Mor: I never saw it either until that morning :)

Matthew Smith: Suet! That's what I put out for my birds :)

Myblog: right?! I once had a professor in college named "Richard Colon." The students used to say "never trust a guy with two body parts for a name" ha ha

As-Salaamu 'alaikum,

In the early 1990s on BBC Radio 1, they used to have an "award" called the "Richard Cranium Award" for whoever had done the most stupid thing that week. It was on "Steve Wright in the Afternoon" (which is on Radio 2 now although it went to the morning then disappeared for a while) which combined music, chat and a sort of slapstick comedy.
