It's delicious... especially with brandy butter and cream.
Dont get ne wrong... I live all the alternatives like trifle, oavlova and chocolate log but you cannot beat Christmas pud.
This year im going to make Mary Berry's Christmas pudding icecream too!

TheWitTank Mon 19-Dec-16 18:31:17

Because it's horrible!

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Mon 19-Dec-16 18:31:21

Do you mean LIKE christmas pudding, as you put dislike...?

littleshirleybeans Mon 19-Dec-16 18:33:12

I hate it. My mum and dad seem surprised every year when I say I don't want any.
I'm 48. I've never eaten it.

Wookiecookies Mon 19-Dec-16 18:33:41

Because it contains the mankiest combination of boak-worthy ingredients. It is like a weird form of christmas punishment.

BiscuitCapitalOfTheWorld Mon 19-Dec-16 18:33:43

Only edible when fried IMHO.

Wookiecookies Mon 19-Dec-16 18:34:27

My DH loves it, weirdo.

ThomasHardyPerennial Mon 19-Dec-16 18:34:46

It's horrible, and so are mince pies!

Wookiecookies Mon 19-Dec-16 18:35:08

Mince pies and christmas cake can fuck the fuck off too. fgrin

ProudBadMum Mon 19-Dec-16 18:35:09

It's rank. Mum buys one every year yet no fucker eats it.

Wookiecookies Mon 19-Dec-16 18:35:31

Ha! X post thomas!!

AVirginLitTheCandle Mon 19-Dec-16 18:37:08

Because it's ick.

As are mince pies...

Not really keen on turkey either...

Shoot me 😑🔫

Whenever I have eaten it, I felt like someone had a personal vendetta against my taste buds.

GraceGrape Mon 19-Dec-16 18:38:01

I love it. After Christmas, I go and buy them heavily reduced in the shops and eat some more!

DustyMaiden Mon 19-Dec-16 18:39:00

I like it, but it's so heavy, too filling.

PoochSmooch Mon 19-Dec-16 18:39:26

If it's so great, why do people only have it once a year, hmmm?

Because it's horrid. Sticky, nasty, over fruity, lumpen ball of ming!

Wookiecookies Mon 19-Dec-16 18:39:37

I hate malt loaf too, its basically just stealth christmas pudding, disguised as a cake.

StillMaidOfStars Mon 19-Dec-16 18:39:42

Grim. And mince pies.

In fact, anything with high density dried fruit.

Which is odd, as I like dried fruit in muesli.

toffeeboffin Mon 19-Dec-16 18:40:33

I flipping love Christmas pud. With Brandy butter, vanilla ice-cream, snarffle snarffle.

cushioncovers Mon 19-Dec-16 18:44:21

It's yuck as are mince pies and Christmas cake. I detest them all.

Ohtobeskiing Mon 19-Dec-16 18:46:17

I love it but I don't like brandy butter!

KnittedBlanketHoles Mon 19-Dec-16 18:46:18

Fried? Did I read that right, fried?

MadisonMontgomery Mon 19-Dec-16 18:46:39

It's foul, we have sticky toffee pudding for Christmas lunch.

backwardpossom Mon 19-Dec-16 18:47:52

I like that a lot of people dislike it. More for me.

I like it with ice cream AND custard. AMAZING.
