Thread: Store-bought pudding

    Default Store-bought pudding

    I bought some chocolate pudding at the supermarket today. It tasted pretty
    good.

    But then I mixed some sugar with some cocoa, and then mixed them into the
    pudding together. (Sugar helps the cocoa to mix easier). It tasted *so* much
    better.

    It got me thinking that these pudding companies probably put the minimum
    amount of sugar and cocoa in their pudding that they need to be competitive.

    Is there a reason you don't make your own from scratch? It's easy and
    you control the quality of the ingredients.

    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    AND... the texture and taste will be superior. Not to mention saving
    a few dimes.

    I always found the chocolate in pudding mixes to be pretty bad. Pudding
    is pretty easy and you don't save much work by making vanilla,
    butterscotch or chocolate pudding. The basics of making a pudding are
    pretty simple. Blend sugar and corn starch, add milk and egg, bring to a
    boil, stir for a minute, add some butter and stir it in. It is pretty
    much the same as making it from a mix, except you aren't paying a lot of
    money for a small amount of corn starch and sugar. The flavourings you
    add yourself are bound to be better than the artificial commercial flavours.

    Nobody needs more sugar in their diets. ;-) I love the Swiss Miss
    triple chocolate refrigerated pudding.

    I don't have a sweet tooth either. I just used the sugar with the cocoa
    because it made it mix easier.

    over lately)

    That might be difficult to mix into pudding. I could mix it into some milk
    first.

    It could be a Nutella swirl pudding.

    You should try the nutella baked in puff pastry that I recently posted
    about. Good stuff.

    The smallest that their marketing research indicates will result in a
    marketable product?
