Christmas in England means dick for dessert

They celebrate Christmas a bit differently in the U.K. For example, they say “Happy Christmas,” which is just silly. They also eat some very different holiday foods. And this year, the big dessert hit is Santa’s Dick.

The creation is a confectionery log sort of thing its creators call a “seasonal twist on Spotted Dick,” which somehow the whole country can say without laughing. The difference is that where Spotted Dick has raisins in it, Santa’s Dick has spiced apples. And you can only find Santa’s Dick at one pub in the U.K. this holiday season.

Key Quote:

“I thought there was a hole in the lady’s dessert market that needed filling and I think Santa’s Dick does just that.”
