Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Farmhouse Fare Lovetub Chocolate Pudding Confirmed sighting: Farmhouse Fare Lovetub Chocolate Pudding
Posted: 13:00 Sun 05-Dec-2010. Price: 1.99/300g offer (usually 2.99). Location: Tesco, Brent Cross. Sub-flavours: Also available in Caramel Pudding. Nutritional unusualness: "We only use lovely stuff to make our lovetub..." (see below).
Snackspot reports: A bit of a hot product round-up today given last week's freezing weather, this first one aimed at women aged 25-34, "who don't tend to eat traditional puddings, but do enjoy ice-cream" - or, as the manufacturers put it, "In the winter months, it doesn't feel quite right sitting in front of the TV with an ice cream when you could be snuggling up with a Lovetub." If you can make it past the "Luscious melt-in-the-mouth chocolate sponge with gorgeously gooey chocolate sauce" description, it's a decent stab at a big microwaveable sponge-and-sauce pudding - "Share the love or just treat yourself!" gurgles the packaging, though if you check out the online-only nutritional info, you discover you'd be treating yourself to nearly 90g of sugar, coincidentally the recommended daily allowance for women, whatever age they are.

...Also on offer in Tesco was Kellogg's fairly accurately-described "delicious with warm milk" Hot Oat Krumbly (in Fruit or Original, 99p/350g) - though I haven't had a chance to compare it to Pepsico's plum-based winter pudding flavour Quaker Oat So Simple, soon to be available in a "just add hot water" version? Or, for a first course, you now have the option of McDonald's expensive-but-impressive Festive Deluxe ("a 100% beef patty with a honey BBQ glaze, cheese, bacon, red onion rings, Batavia lettuce and a smoky peppered mayo, all served in a square cheese-topped Focaccia bun"), or the supermarkets' increasingly wide range of "Christmas Dinner"-flavour delicacies including, but not restricted to, Morrison's Christmas Dinner Broth, or Christmas Dinner Pizza (1.50-2.49), if you really can't wait for that unique turkey, bacon and herbs combo.

Comment: I'm a big sweet shop fan, lately bought some sweets from http://www.chocolatebuttons.co.uk - it's awesome although a bit pricy. Can anybody point me to similar shops?

Comment: On the pudding theme, has anyone tried chocolate fudge cake from Wagamama? "Moist chocolate fudge cake with wasabi and chocolate fudge filling. served with a dark chocolate-wasabi sauce and dairy vanilla pod ice cream "

I had 2 extra helpings of the wasabi sauce over mine! Bloody yum-yum!
