THE real McCoy. If you've never tried it you can't say you've found the best.(20)
A mix of fresh blood, British oats and barley, British pork fat, onion and spices, our black pudding is incomparable to mass-produced, dried blood versions. Succulent and rich, we supply our pudding to some of the finest eateries in the land. Tom Kerridge, The Duck and Waffle and The Hawksmoor Group all use it.
To cook: Slice, remove outer skin, quickly grill or fry both sides to 'crozzle' making sure inside is piping hot.

Bags of flavour
This is the best black pudding I have tasted outside Spain. It's fruity and spicy and full of flavour. Lovely baked with rice and chickpeas.
Splendid Black Pudding
Had several packs of these last Christmas and plan to do the same again this year. The only trouble is making sure enough are left to make it to the table.
Anger turns to pleasure
Well, I saw the tv show and at 70 years of age, having enjoyed black pudding all my life, I could not believe it was probably not being made with local produce and real blood. To hear it was made with imported dried blood...made my blood boil (forgive the pun). So I purchased the real thing...and have discovered quite simply the best black pudding I have ever eaten. A lovely blend of herbs and spices with a gentle peppery finish. Smooth, juicy and full bodied, it really is a quality product. Needless to say, I have ordered some more from the boys at Fruit Pig. Highly recommended.
Fresh black pudding
My fresh black pudding arrived today-not disappointed, the best I've tried and I've tried a lot will definitely be buying more.
I am now a true convert to Real Blood Black Pudding. It is exceptionally tasty, crumbly not fatty and with the real amount of spices. It shows by using all local items we can make a better product than a mass-produced one.
This is something else. Soft, moist, with a hint of fruit and pepper and a delicate aftertaste leaving me wanting more. In a very small way it reminded me of haggis? Sorry if this haggis reference offends anyone, but this black pudding needs to be tried by all.
What have I been eating all these years?
Simply the BEST. If you think you like Black Puddings...try the real thing. What have I been eating all these years?...These are far beyond any other Black Pudding I've had. Soft, moist, with subtle hints of spice..very Moorish indeed.
Amazing... amazing.... amazing
Nothing compares to this..thank god for Fruit Pig...the king of black pudding...will be back for more and we're spreading the word!
In a league of its own
Delicious pudding - best I have tasted in the UK
Black pudding bonbon heaven
I have never tasted a black pudding like it fantastic. I've not been a big lover of the black pudding but this is not like any black pudding you've ever tasted. Even if you think you don't like black pudding you have to try this one.

From a Lancashire Lad
I grew up in Lancashire in the 1950s and 60s and one of my early memories is of Oldham's Tommyfield Market, a genuine old fashioned outdoor market. There were several stalls that sold black pudding and it was a common sight to see people eating it as they walked around the market. It had an almost creamy texture and was not over seasoned. Today's black puddings, even the so called â€˜Award Winning' ones, are a pale shadow of that, I suspect because of food safety laws that mean most black pudding is produced from blood powder that comes from so many sources that nobody can attest to its provenance. The Fruit Pig Fresh Blood Black Pudding is, without doubt, the best I have ever tasted by a country mile. It has that creamy texture I remember along with a taste that just bursts with flavour without having any one key ingredient dominating. If you love good food you really must try this black pudding: you will not regret it, I promise.
Black Pudding Nostalgia!
I'd given up buying modern black puddings, as they were universally bland and a pale imitation of he puddings of my youth. That was until I read an article explaining why they were so tasteless. 95% of puddings are now made with imported, dried pig's blood. I then discovered the Fruit Pig and received my first order last week - black puddings, morcilla and the intriguing 'mutton bacon'! My first recipe was for black pudding Scotch Eggs (River Cottage recipe). An absolute delight and also enjoyed by my carnivorous partner (steak tartare with raw egg type of lady!) and importantly by my 92 year old mother (a tripe and onions type of lady). She declared them to be as good as they used to be. Not yet tried the morcilla or 'bacon', but will definitely order more puddings.
Absolutely delicious! I came across Fruit Pig fresh blood black pudding some time ago and was really taken by the difference in flavour. Other commercial black pudding that you can buy has a dry mealy taste, but this has a light and bright flavour that is almost perfumed. It freezes well and keeps nicely. My wife is not a fan of black pudding. What a shame! All the more for me!
Best black pudding ever
Having tried black pudding from everywhere l have never found a taste that replicated what l remembered from childhood days in Leicesteshire. Now l have. Fruit Pig make the best black pudding. If you want the real thing you must try this.
There are many British Black Puddings and I have eaten most of them; Stornoway is good, Bury is quite nice but, none of those approach the soft, delightful creamy joy of the Fruitpig Black Pudding. Further more, if you considered Gluten Free a bit of a fad; try the GF Black Pudding, you can practically pour it over your cereal it's so creamy. Just mind with the cooking! Black pudding is already boiled when you get it so a couple of minutes on each side grilled or fried and you are done. even on thick slices. Over cook it and you have thick slab of MEAT (still superior to most BPs mind) but if you cook it just to crisp the top and bottom then the texture and taste are so good you might just consider taking up Vampirism for a neat fix of the good stuff.
Black Pudding in Lancashire
I recently reviewed your website following my watching an old episode of Jamie's Friday Night Feasts. I was keen to try your real blood black pudding and was delighted to see that Tom Wood was based in Blackburn near to where I live, and stocks your product. I bought some black pudding this weekend and felt compelled to drop you a line to say that my husband and myself are totally converted. It was superb and could not be more different to any product we have previously tasted!!! It was a delight to find your website and subsequently Tom's market stall.
No Bloody Nonsense (Bloody Tasty)
Excellent balance flavour, Been big fan of black puddings from different butchers over years, Best i've had in long time specially now days.
Just eaten the best black pudding I’ve ever had, thank you Matt and Chris will be stocking up!!
Proper dag how it should be
Irrelevant of the taste of this dag, it is made with real blood, not dried blood which in the most has been imported. Dag was always made with fresh blood, hark back to the days of yore when family farms were mixed, a littloe arable for feed for the stock, a couple of pigs to eat the scraps. Slaughtering the pigs was a backyard thing, and the fresh blood would be collected once the pig had been slit and was bleeding out. Having made dag in the past, using the fresh blood from our own pigs, I understand the difference real blood makes to a black dag - it is fresher, cleaner and has a much improved mouth feel, some would say it is creamier and smoother than dried blood dag. Fruitpig have produced a fantastic product, it packs a punchful of spicy goodness (not chilli spice, but good old fashioned spices), giving a nice warm glow and firing you up for the day ahead. One slice of dag and one of the white dag with a fried egg - my new go to breakfast, every single day. No cereal, no milk, just black goodness and a little white goodness for balance weshed down with a good old slug of caffeine. Boom. Get after it folks, it's the law!
