Well, that's it - summer is officially over. With the end of the August Bank Holiday there's little to look forward to this side of Christmas; days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder and wistful dreams of a summer full of beer gardens and barbecues are but a distant memory. Pimms is disappearing off drinks menus and chicken ceasar salads are no longer the order of the day.

However, as the descent into winter swiftly begins, there is one rather large plus point - the influx of comfort food. No longer having to parade around in bikinis on our annual summer holidays and with chunky knits dominating the shop floor of our favourite retail outlets, now is the perfect time to embrace our more 'cuddly' side.

And what better way to do so than to indulge in all things, well, indulgent? We at The Amazing Blog have found the perfect pudding to while away the winter nights - and even better - they're suitable for everyone.

Borne out of a dream for everyone to be able to enjoy incredibly rich and delicious puddings regardless of any food intolerances, the clever folks at Pudology work tirelessly to create a wide range of tasty, indulgent treats that everyone can enjoy. None of their delicious desserts include any form of dairy, and neither do they include any wheat or egg based ingredients.

With a tantalising range of flavours on offer - including mango, espresso and banoffee - Pudology have managed to succeed where others have failed by creating the perfect pudding. There was something of a squabble here at The Amazing Blog when we got our hands on Pudology's offerings and we can confirm that they are every bit as delicious as we had hoped.


Are you listening, Easter Bunny?

There is just enough time before Easter to slip in another chocolate blog I think! I have got a taste for the good stuff and the only chocolate egg I want this year comes from the artisian chocolatier Dermarquette, are you listening Easter Bunny???

Dermarquette’s delicious chocolates are handmade using the finest and most ethically sourced ingredients - don’t you think there is something infinately more satisfying about high quality chocolate? Maybe we will even need to eat less of it...not promising or anything!

For a bit of over-stated sophistication and class (sure there is an oxmoron in there somewhere) we are going for the limited edition Glam Egg. The incredible, space-age design is made up of 6 hand painted multi-flavoured caramel mini eggs between two segments of a chocolate egg. A further six caramel eggs are nesting in the base of the main egg, which is made with 71.1% dark chocolate with a delicate coating of pure white chocolate velvet that adds a unique luxurious texture. The caramel mini eggs flavours are inspired by the Great British Orchard:

  • Yorkshire Rhubarb (2010 Great Taste Award Winner)
  • Kentish Apple & Pear
  • Somerset Apricot
  • Devon Strawberry (2009 Great Taste Award Winner)
  • Scottish Raspberry
  • Cornish Sea Salt

Delish! But get your own we’re not sharing...
