Shiny

Cons: 
Doesn’t appear to be available in a single serving (this could be released closer to Christmas).
Maybe a little bit too much candied peel?

4.5/5 – Every member of the Moosick family that tried this pud preferred it ever-so-slightly over the Asda pud; purely because we agreed we would rather taste the fruit than the alcohol. However both offer very good Christmas pudding options, you genuinely would not know these were free from anything!
