We would be wrong to try and pass off this pudding as a British creation as it is very much of German origin but since the 1970's we have enjoyed an Anglicised form on many a pudding trolley. Lashings of whipped cream, dark chocolate cake and of course cherries made this a dessert to die for. This is our very chocolatey and subtle interpretation of this wonderful pudding.
Quintessentially a most decadent treat. First served at the annual cricket match between Eton and Winchester, this beautiful British summertime pudding has been translated by us into a tantalising bar combining well rounded Peruvian milk chocolate with super sweet strawberry and crunchy meringue.
Out of the austerity of World War II came the great British invention of crumble, and of course out of crumble came the greatest dish of all, the all-British Apple Crumble! Our idea was to interpret the flavours of this pudding into an innovative and contemporary chocolate bar that does justice to this fabulous milk chocolate and memories of family feasts.
Steaming a log shaped chocolate bar doesn't work so well, but the spotted part of the name is easy enough to interpret while other bits that sounded great in 1850 are now harder to unravel. This was one of those puddings that never really sounded that great but always tasted like heaven - especially with custard. We loved this Venezuelan milk chocolate as our custard replacement.
Aptly meaning 'sweetheart' in cockney rhyming slang and arguably the most famous of all Great British Puddings, it has been fiendishly difficult to get that subtle treacle flavour and balance into our beautiful chocolate. Often challenged but rarely defeated, we worked on through chocolate adversity and can now confidently present this beautiful bar that has a true treacle tart hit!
