Inside

Smells like:
Alcohol
But not quite the booziness of the Asda Pudding.
Not that fruity considering the contents.

Tastes like:
The pudding was as dry as it looked.
Not completely unpleasant but quite bitter tasting.
My mum and I were convinced there were cranberries hiding in this pudding, we were surprised not to find them in the ingredients.
Very full of fruit and peel.

Price:
£3.50 for family size
£1.25 for single portion

Conclusion:
Pros: 
Very good distribution of fruit
Good if you prefer a drier pudding
Suitable for vegans
Available in single portion size

Cons:
Quite a mature bitter taste.
Taste just wasn’t to my liking, i would have preferred it to be a bit sweeter.

3.5 – One for those who prefer a drier more savoury pudding.
