refer to fruit or a yogurt as 'pudding'. fruit is not a fucking dessert! Dessert = sugar/fat/stodge not a fucking yogurt!

MyDoItMyself Wed 12-Aug-15 17:25:33

Fruit salad is a pudding, isn't it? Not all dessert has to contain sugar, fat and "stodge", sorbet is a dessert. And surely it's the fact that you eat it after your main course that makes it a pudding, rather than what it actually is?

Yanbu.
Everyone knows its afters whatever it is.

It is perfectly reasonable of you to have whatever feelings you happen to have, but it would be entirely unreasonable for you to seek to correct people, or otherwise prevent them from this very common usage of the English language.

Yogurt is a disappointing pudding.
Although I had fruit for pudding yesterday with a tonne of cream

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 12-Aug-15 17:28:47

YABU, what would you call fruit and yoghurt after a main course if you don't call it pudding?

CigarsofthePharoahs Wed 12-Aug-15 17:28:58

Sorbet contains a lot of sugar!

"Pudding" used to be 17th century slang for poo, or so I was once told.

walks off whistling

Through a snack grin

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 12-Aug-15 17:35:06

No you can't call it a snack, OP, a snack is between meals surely.

Twirlypoos Wed 12-Aug-15 17:35:24

Fruit and yoghurt after a meal are a dessert, they are not a pudding. Puddings are fat/sugar/stodge.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 12-Aug-15 17:36:21

Maybe you should call it 'the yoghurt and fruit course" served between the main course and pudding <very posh>

roofio87 Wed 12-Aug-15 17:51:34

my 22 Month ds will agree with you. if I offer 'pudding' and then produce fruit or a yogurt there is a meltdown!!

MrsMummyPig Wed 12-Aug-15 18:14:23

I'd do the same roof grin

DownAtFraggleRock Wed 12-Aug-15 18:17:18

hmm, tricky...you could go old skool and call it 'sweet' or 'afters'. Covers all bases? grin

cocobean2805 Wed 12-Aug-15 18:51:54

YABU, what would you call fruit and yoghurt after a main course if you don't call it pudding?

I'd call it "we've run out of ice cream" grin

Fruit and yoghurt after a meal are a dessert, they are not a pudding. Puddings are fat/sugar/stodge

This, exactly. Puddings are indulgent and calorific. Yoghurt is not and can never be a pudding.

msgrinch Wed 12-Aug-15 19:05:28

'afters' oh dear god that's worse than 'supper'. shock

JugglingChaotically Wed 12-Aug-15 19:19:31

Pudding is either fruit or yog as far as my DCs are concerned!
Exceptions on hols and special occasions only...

SanityClause Wed 12-Aug-15 19:26:13

If you are really grand, the dessert course refers to fresh fruit, and is separate from the pudding.

FanFuckingTastic Wed 12-Aug-15 19:27:56

Muuuuuum what can we have for dessert?

Fruit or a yoghurt because I ate all the puddings.

MrsGentlyBenevolent Wed 12-Aug-15 21:11:49

What if its one of those Dairy Milk yogurts, with the buttons or flakes to stir in? It's like a fruit corner yogurt, only not full of disappointment.

JackSkellington Wed 12-Aug-15 21:14:11

I would have agreed until recently seeing my dentist about having a filling, he told me to avoid yoghurts in the meantime as most of them are packed full of sugar and quite bad for your teeth.
