Tasting Notes:
For what's essentially bread pudding in a can, it tasted like, well, bread pudding in can. There are instructions to heat it by microwave or steam it on the stove; but you can just easily eat your spotted dick cold.

The raisins, which provide the spots, leech their tartness and tang and provide most of the flavor. But more than anything, it tastes like a damp blueberry muffin that's been crammed inside a can. But for all its moistness, it does need the traditional custard sauce. I'll leave any further comments and/or punchlines, up to you.
