Christmas Puddings

Order Now with Malcolm

Rotary Traditional Christmas Puddings are made from only the best fruit, spices and wholesome ingredients to a time-proven recipe that everyone loves year after year.

These Christmas Puddings are the most delicious way to turn a meal into a celebration. Hot or cold, you just can’t beat them. Serve with custard, brandy butter, caramel sauce, cream or ice cream - yum!

Rotary Christmas Puddings make the best seasonal gifts
