Well, I’ve ordered several of these and served them to company, and it’s always a fun discussion! Living in the US, what I call "pudding" is not the same thing someone from UK would call pudding. This has texture like a very dense cake. It’s moist if you steam it--unfortunately quite a bit of it sticks to the inside of the can, and if you’re careful you can scrape it out and eat it. Not a particularly nice presentation, being all shaped like the can...but tasty. Served with what I WOULD call "pudding" poured over the top! Very Rich, and very good
I ordered the Heinz Spotted Dick in the tin, but I received the Aunty’s Spotted Dick. It probably doesn’t make any difference, but I would have liked to try the Heinz. The other Aunty’s product I ordered was good.
I received the tin of spotted dick and there appears to be a balloon effect in the tin; meaning I can press on it and it pops. So I don’t know if it is safe or not, as I can’t remember if it is supposed to be that way or not!

For a dessert item that sounds like a problem that would cause you to rush to the Doctor for treatment Spotted Dick was pretty good. We purchased the 10.7oz Heinz can and tried it one night while playing gin rummy. First it was suprising that it could be heated in the can (unopened) with a pan of boiling water. When we opened the can the aroma that wafted out was tantalizing. This "pudding" which is more like a cake was very tasty and had all the right ingredients. My wife would have preferred nuts over raisins but everything else was great. There was a taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and what seemed like pumpkin pie spices. The product came out of the can very easy and was enjoyed by all.
We will definitly purchase this again and may even send some as gifts to family members over Christmas.
This was the first time I’ve had the Heinz Spotted Dick and must say in was rather tasty. I’ve tasted other Spotted Dick but found them to be dry to my taste buds. Raisins were plumb. However I too wish it had nuts.
After seeing this product on the shelf for awhile, I got the nerve up to buy it. After the grocery checker and I had a good laugh, I took it home, heated it up in the microwave and was pleasantly surprised how tasty Spotted Dick is. It was so moist and the flavors reminded me of the holidays. I definitely will include this tasty treat at our holiday dinners!
Very tasty ,will buy again
