THE real McCoy. If you've never tried it, you can't say you've found the best.(17)
A mix of fresh blood, British oats and barley, British pork fat, onions and spices, our black pudding is incomparable to mass-produced, dried blood versions.
Succulent and rich, we supply our black pudding to some of the finest places in the land. Tom Aikens, Tom Kerridge, The Duck and Waffle, The Hawksmoor Group, Fortnum and Mason and Harrods Food Hall all have our fresh blood black pudding.
To cook: Slice and remove outer skin, grill or fry both sides to 'crozzle' making sure inside is piping hot.
We're continually asked about the fresh blood vs dried blood debate; it's a heated topic...here's our take.
So happy to have found one of my favourite foods. Nice. Very nice.

A "hearty" beakfast!
Couldn't resist, had my Valentine Breakfast in January. Fabulous. Say it with heart-shaped black pud.
Black Pud lover
We do breakfasts in our village hall on the first Sunday of every month, where we often serve more than 80, and have tried several different black puddings over the last 2 years. We served yours last Sunday and everyone said that it was definitely the best. We have tried many different black puddings, in particular from Scotland and Cumbria, but yours surpassed them all. Since doing breakfasts our sales of black pudding have soared, I expect because many people had never tried it before, or perhaps had eaten nasty cheap versions, and did not realise how good it can be. I work in the kitchen and us cooks and washer uppers were especially lucky as we were able to eat many small pieces of black pudding throughout the morning - and that was before we all sat down to our large breakfast. So, you are definitely onto a winner.
This Black Pudding is Fantastic. Full of flavour and so Juicy! Not only do our customers love it, but more importantly I get to eat it whenever I want, which is all the time.

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.
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!
Incredibly good. I usually like my Irish puds, mostly oatmeal, minimal meat taste; but for a traditional crumbly English pudding this is by far the best I've ever tasted. Surprisingly sophisticated and powerful flavours. Brilliant stuff. Mouth watering anticipation.
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.
Outstanding produce. Yum!
We absolutely love everything about Fruitpig. 5 star all the way.
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.
Simply the best
This is quite simple luv the best black pudding I've ever tasted. I keep the freezer stocked!
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.
Just eaten the best black pudding I’ve ever had, thank you Matt and Chris will be stocking up!!
