Premium Christmas pudding from budget supermarket beats those from Aldi, Iceland, M&S, Sainsbury’s and more.
Their expert panel taste-tested 10 premium Christmas puddings from Aldi, Iceland, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and more, but only one stood out from the pack enough to be named a Which? Best Buy.
The Lidl Deluxe 24-month matured Christmas Pudding (81%, £11.99). It impressed with the variety of fruit and nuts, and our panel liked the texture, too. It is a boozy pudding though, making this quite an adult way to round off Christmas dinner.
Some of the panel felt that the quality of puddings was lower than in our previous taste tests, and that many of the puds were lacking in traditional ingredients such as figs, prunes and apricots.
They’d also have liked to see a higher quality of currants and whole nuts, plus some more spice. Generally, there was little to pick out between the puddings, and Lidl’s deluxe pudding was the only one that stood out from the crowd said the experts.
