Still available in Iceland and Tesco, at least:

(£3.89, Iceland)

(£2.25, Tesco)
Killed off in 2015 as consumers had moved on to microwaveable spong puddings in plastic pots instead.

Judging by the pictures on the packet, neither are the treats I remember. I am intrigued by the Mediterranean style recipe, though.

I remember moving into a new flat with a couple of mates, and within a couple of days putting a tasty Heinz Strawberry sponge pudding to boil in the traditional saucepan of boiling water on the stove, then nipping round to the pub on the corner for a swift drink. I remember us coming back to the flat shortly thereafter , and hearing an ominous popping sound as we walked up the stairs. The pudding had exploded all over the ceiling and walls, and the smouldering saucepan had settled onto the carpet on the kitchen , burning the impression of a perfect circular hole therein, which our landlord was later not to regard as so perfect. One flatmate saying, not too chuffed, " How long have you been here? One day? ", One girl collapsing in helpless laughter. I always associate this event with the My Bloody Valentine album " Loveless" for some reason.

Cooking cock ups can happen to anyone.

Subway’s barbecued beef burnt ends. Was only a limited thing I think anyway, but I tried it once and it was surprisingly good.

I like the flan bit but not the sauce, so I eat them the 'wrong' way up and bin the rest.

On a sort of related note, a friend once caught me in the co-op with about fifty chilled rice puddings in my basket. "You're going to get completely Mullered!", he said. He was very pleased with that.

At my wedding, a mate of mine spotted the mullah sitting by a bowl of fruit in the corner.

The rest is history.

Still widely available. The crinkle cut McCain ones are ok but the best ones are the Findus Fries to Go.

Do they still come individually entombed in a cardboard harmonica?

I assume that was to make them go less soggy. Horrible things.

No, god knows what magic they are working down at the Findus factory but no, somehow they no longer require the cardboard harmonica.

It's getting harder to find a nice can of Pussy. It has a much more refined and refreshing taste than bull.

You can still get horse burgers.

Kangaroo burgers were nice, and very healthy. Who cares if it's a cuddly furry animal?

I'd forgotten all about these! Among my favourite readymade pizzas of all time, it's criminal that they stopped making them.

If it's that upsetting could you not, you know, make your own? It's beans out a tin on a cheese pizza? (I'd love to see you tryin' to cope in a post-apocalyptic world.)

But they wouldn't be the same! (Great idea, I'll try this)
