Below are the results of our Christmas Pudding taste test 2020:

Marks & Spencer Collection Chocolate & Orange Christmas Pudding, £12 ten out of ten rating

Marks & Spencer Collection Chocolate & Orange Christmas Pudding, £12Now although it’s not your typical traditional Christmas pudding, we simply fell in love with M&S Collection Chocolate & Orange pud. With its gooey chocolate and orange sauce in the middle cased around rich and zesty juicy vine fruit, it was stuff dreams were made of. The team felt this tocked every single box – rich, sumptuous, melt in the mouth – which is why it’s our WINNER.

nine out of ten rating

Sainsbury’s 18 Month Matured Christmas Pudding, £7.00

Sainsbury's 18 Month Matured Christmas Pudding, £7.00A Christmas pudding should have the right amount of alcohol, nuts, fruit and sweetness and Sainsbury’s have certainly delivered. Our testers felt the pudding had a deep rich taste and were very impressed with the texture of the pudding. One of the boozier pud’s, the UK supermarket didn’t scrimp on the cider, cognac, rum, brandy and sherry and is in second place in this Christmas taste test.

eight point five out of ten scoreTesco Finest Christmas Pudding, £8.00

Tesco Finest Christmas Pudding, £8.00This Christmas pudding certainly has the booze factor, some of our testers felt it was a little too much however it certainly held its shape once cooked and it had all the festive flavours you would expect. It had nice chunky fruit and nuts and the right amount of sweetness. This Christmas pudding would be ideal for those who like a balance of both fruit and nuts and with a balance of both sherry and port.

Marks & Spencer Collection Vintage Pudding, £15

Marks & Spencer Collection Vintage Pudding, £15This 18 month matured Vintage Christmas pudding had everything you could want, intense and rich fruit with a really warming taste. The fruit was juicy and packed full of flavour including nutmeg and cinnamon, once this was cooked it kept moist, held its shape, and smelled lovely – we could easily have had another spoonful…ok maybe two or three spoonfuls extra!

seven point five out of ten scoreWaitrose & Partners Heston Sherry & Balsamic Vinegar Pudding, £14.00

Waitrose & Partners Heston Sherry & Balsamic Vinegar Pudding, £14.00Surprisingly this was not what we expected as the combinations just felt as though they shouldn’t work however they did! The Balsamic of Modena and ruby port gave the fruit a real plump and juicy taste. Our tasters felt it dd have a pretty intense taste but it might be a good option for those looking for something quirky and different.
