As for the picture, yes, this is real. A friend put it on Facebook. I won't give you his name because I know he would be embarassed. On second thought, he probably won't be, he did offer it to his Facebook pals. It was Russell Carter. Blame him, not me.
This stuff is a real product, found it on a Heinz website.
Heinz Spotted Dick Pudding 300g, imported from England. This is a traditional British sponge pudding made with golden syrup, suet and raisins. Best served hot with custard.
