I have been trying out Pudology puds

I have been running a competition where part of the prize is some Pudology Puds, and so I decided I had to try them out.

The lovely people over at Pudology sent me out 2 banoffee, 2 strawberry and 2 chocolate.

{sshh..dairy & gluten free!}In the study of the perfect {dairy & gluten free!} pudding, we have created beautifully indulgent & delicious puddings made without dairy, gluten or eggs, because we believe no-one should miss out just because they can't eat dairy!

The chocolate ones
The incredible combination of creamy coconut and dark decadent chocolate create this incredibly satisfying and a little bit naughty treat.



Ingredients List
Coconut Milk (52%), Dark Chocolate(38%) (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soya lecithin, natural vanilla flavouring) Water, Sugar, Madagascan Vanilla Extract(0.6%)
These were very rich, rather sweet, and I would describe them as chocolate hazelnut spread without the chocolate and nuts but very similar taste and consistency, and totally delicious. 
These puddings are chocolate all the way down, and I served mine up with pancakes, it
melted beautifully over the top. Also think it would be nice on a sponge cake as a frosting. 




Strawberry

A little sophisticated pot of frighteningly fresh tasting strawberries with the creaminess of coconut milk. The gluten free biscuit base makes this dessert a real treat if you’re avoiding dairy and gluten, it’s a bit like a cheesecake but we think it’s a hundred times better!
Ingredients List
Strawberry Topping (76%) - Coconut Milk (59%), Strawberry Puree (33%)(strawberries, inverted sugar syrup), Sugar, Stabiliser: (Corn Starch, Pectin E440, Agar E406, Carob Gum E410, Sugar)
Biscuit Base (24%) - Flour Blend (Rice, Tapioca, Maize, Buckwheat), Vegetable Fat Spread (vegetable oils, water, salt, emulsifier: mono-and-di glycerides of fatty acids, flavourings, vitamin E, citric acid, colour: beta carotene, vitamins A and D) Sugar.
  
 This one is also soya free. These had a nice combination of topping with a nice biscuit base. A crumbly biscuit base as per typical of gluten free biscuits . A little bit to sweet in the first spoonful or two but really nice time you get use to it. Its great to eat something as indulgent as this and know you wont suffer the next forty eight hours for eating it.

Banoffee



The ultimate dairy free indulgence with our secret dairy free toffee sauce. Layers of crunchy biscuit, toffee and banana topped off with our indulgent dairy free chocolate ganache, this is heaven in a pot.Ingredients ListChocolate Topping (23%) - Coconut Milk, Dark Chocolate(38%) (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soya lecithin, natural vanilla flavouring) Water, Sugar, Madagascan Vanilla Extract.Soya Toffee & Banana Sauce(55%) - Banana Puree (50%), Soya Milk (Water,Hulled Soya Beans (6.5%) ,Apple Extract ,Acidity Regulators (Monopotassium Phosphate, Dipotassium Phosphate) ,Calcium Carbonate ,Maltodextrin ,Sea Salt ,Stabiliser (Gellan Gum) ,Vitamins (Riboflavin, B12, E, D2)), Sugar, Vegetable Fat Spread (Vegetable Oils,Water ,Salt (2.3%) ,Emulsifier: Mono- and Di-Glycerides of Fatty Acids ,Flavourings ,Vitamin E ,Citric Acid ,Colour: Beta-Carotene ,Vitamins A and D).
Biscuit Base (22%) -  Flour Blend (Rice, Tapioca, Maize, Buckwheat), Vegetable Fat Spread (vegetable oils, water, salt, emulsifier: mono-and-di glycerides of fatty acids, flavourings, vitamin E, citric acid, colour: beta carotene, vitamins A and D) Sugar.

This one was also very nice, a great combination of biscuit base,  a banana flavour in the middle and topped with the chocolate pudding.
This again was quite sweet, but a great treat for us people who cannot eat normal foods.

It really is nice to see more and more companies making "normal, decent" food for people with allergies, and I get quite excited by what the next ten years are going to bring for people like me, my children and my grandchildren. Thanks to companies like this my great grandchildren will be able to walk into a supermarket and readily buy products like these.

I have to point out I had to fight off OH for these, he normally will not touch what he classes as "foodless food" but he thoroughly enjoyed these as well. Bob did not get to try them as the only soya free one is the strawberry and Bob is allergic to strawberries or you would have had his opinion as well.

Disclaimer - I was sent the puddings out to review, but the findings are my own.
