Was just waking up reading the latest BBC news when this tasty story caught my eye. Following Bill’s interesting experience with black pudding when he visited the UK it sounds like the perfect treat for him.
At my Aunt’s birthday celebrations poor naive jet lagged Bill was coerced into trying black pudding by my brother who, like my mother, was happily gobbling down the buffet offering with great gusto. It was presented for consumption in little innocuous chunks neatly skewered onto cocktail sticks. When Bill enquired what the fuss was about he was told that it was like “chocolate on a stick” and persuaded to take a sample. Naughty monkey Mel was of no aid to Bill either as in fits of giggles the cheeky wench encouraged my then fiance to partake of this British delicacy before Simon and Mum devoured the lot.
Needless to say when all was explained after curiosity had got the better of him and he’d taken a wretched mouthful Bill was not a happy man.
I’m sure then that Black Pudding Ice Cream would get a hearty thumbs up in this household. Though, of course, I have bets on Bill’s dream ice cream flavour being “Dad’s Shepherd’s Pie”. Wouldn’t that be delicious?
