Aldi Specially Selected Golden Topped Christmas Pudding Wreath
If you’re looking for a zingy, orang-y, fruity pudding this is for you. We found this pud to be nicely balanced in taste and held its shape. The pudding tasted really nice, had plenty of fruit and the cherries on top with the added gold dust made the wreath look very impressive however it is a little bit sticky.

Waitrose & Partners Cherry & Almond-Topped Christmas Pudding
Whole juicy fruits, not too rich and a glossy look all made Waitrose Cherry & Almond topped Christmas pudding oh so tasty. The three different types of cherries and the almonds complimented each other very well and the addition of amaretto gave this a sweet finish. However some would have preferred the almonds to be in smaller chunks.

Tesco’s Christmas Pudding Matured For 6 months did have everything we would expect from a pudding, it was full of fruit and nuts and could really taste the cider and brandy, however it was a little dry to eat and slightly stodgy.
