Daylesford Organic Christmas Pudding with Sixpence,
£20, 900g (01608 731700; www. daylesford.com) A moreish, soft texture and a rather subtle flavour, which garnered approval for not being too sweet. Scored highly on our list.
Matthew Walker Golden Mulled Plum & Port Christmas Pudding, £15.79, 800g (www. matthewwalkerchristmaspuddings. co.uk) Quite rich and boozy—naturally a strong favourite with the team.
Burtree Gluten Free Christmas Pudding,
£8.99, 450g (www. burtreepuddings.co.uk; 01325 463521) Very moist and full of flavour, this won points for being heartily traditional.
