Advantages: Lovely rich chocolate sponge with Cadburys chocolate sauce
Disadvantages: Small portions, quite expensive
I paid £1.59 for my pack of two small puddings in Morrisons. Small is a key word here. When I first saw these in the flesh, I was slightly disappointed at the size. They do say size doesn't matter but the packet just contained two tiny little plastic pots (120g each) and I did think they seemed a bit pricey for what they were. Nonetheless, I gave into temptation and took the handsome strangers home with me.
The pack only contained cooking instructions for cooking one pud at a time. Sod that - I bunged them both in. (One for me, one for the kids, before anybody starts commenting!) I simply microwaved them for slightly longer than the recommended time and left them to stand for a few minutes before tipping them out into serving bowls. The puds slipped out easily, no cake was left welded to the pots wasted and I only needed to spoon out the last bit of chocolate sauce and sample it (for quality assurance purposes, of course.)
The puds smelt absolutely gorgeous. They gave off a really rich chocolately aroma. That first mouthful...bliss! The sauce was undoubtedly the best part and it was just so smooth and chocolately with a creamy taste that is unmistakeably Cadbury's. I can almost still taste it now. The chocolate sponge itself was very rich and dense. I want to say it was claggy, which sounds like a criticism, but it just gave that fulfilling rich flavour of a proper old-fashioned steamed pudding. The kind of food that a buxom nanny might have served up in the nursery. Despite moaning about the small size of the portions, I can honestly say that I was more than satisfied after eating mine (and moaning for different reasons!) and my six year old actually left half of his. I certainly don't think that was any indication that he didn't like it all, simply that the pud is very rich and filling, despite appearances.
I had considered having some custard with this and was glad that I decided against it as it was moist enough without it and I think that the custard might have detracted from the gorgeous chocolate sauce. According to the pack, the sponge makes up 58% of the portion and the sauce 42% but I could definitely have forced some extra chocolate sauce down with my portion!
The only thing left to consider is whether this pudding is indeed better than sex. Unfortunately, I couldn't accurately say. I think I'd have to sample both for some considerable time to undertake a fair comparison! (Maybe one activity could burn off some of the calories from the other!)
Summary: Better than sex (maybe!)
