Georgie Porgies Puddings
Well, we all know how the nursery rhyme goes:
Georgie Porgie Pudding and Pie, kissed the girls and made them cry……
But there won’t be any tears if you get your hands on one of these delicious Georgie Porgie Puddings!
We’ve eaten a lot of Christmas puddings in our time, but nothing compares to these! The taste is simply exceptional and we are so excited to be teaming up with Georgie this Christmas.
What makes these puddings so special? Well, every single pudding is handmade in Budleigh, the small town on the Devonshire coast. All the ingredients are locally sourced – including George, who has lived in Budleigh his whole life.
George started out cleaning the floors of the Budleigh Pate factory for a fiver a day. In 1994, he started making traditional steamed Christmas Puddings while working part-time in Budleigh Pate’s chutney factory. By 1996, he turned it into a year-round business. In 1997, he returned to Budleigh Pate – making it the new home of Georgie Porgie’s Puddings!
From cleaning the floors of the factory to becoming the owner, George still kept climbing from strength to strength. He started experimenting with new flavours, launching a West Country classic - Cider and Apple – to celebrate St. George’s Day in 1997, with one pudding even going to Her Majesty the Queen herself.
George’s story makes him a perfect match for Vive La Crêpe. Like us, he’s all about working up from humble beginnings, using the finest local produce and most importantly, creating food that tastes amazing!
We are stocking the full range of Georgie Porgie Puddings at Leicester Christmas Market. The traditional Christmas pudding is so rich and fragrant, it tastes as warming and delicious as sitting round the fire with your loved ones. Serve it up with Brandy sauce, cream, custard – whatever your tradition is. For anyone who wants to mix things up this year, we’ve got some amazing flavour combinations: Apple and Cider, Orange and Cointreau, Chocolate Orange and Baileys. These have won great taste awards, and they make ideal Christmas gifts – if you can resist keeping it for yourself!
