It wouldn’t be pud­ding with­out cus­tard – but which of the nine chilled, ready-to-eat pots we tried hit the sweet spot?

WIN­NER

■ Asda Ex­tra Spe­cial Mada­gas­can £1.85 for 500g This creamy yel­low cus­tard has an ap­petis­ing deep vanilla aroma and is at­trac­tively flecked with seeds. Testers praised the rich­ness (thanks to dou­ble cream) and a sweet­ness that isn’t over­pow­er­ing. A lovely pourable thick­ness. 81/100

RUN­NER-UP

■ M&S Dessert Menu The Col­lec­tion Thick & Creamy Mada­gas­can £2.40 for 500g Our panel were im­pressed with this in­dul­gently creamy and thick cus­tard. It has a mea­sured sweet­ness, but the vanilla flavour isn’t quite strong enough for it to re­ceive top marks. 78/100
