Treacle Pudding

Fresh & Easy is a subsidiary of Tesco, the world's third-largest retailer. As Tesco is from the UK, they carry things that Americans do not normally experience. Having heard about treacle about a decade ago when listening to the Lords of Acid - Voodoo U album, last week I decided I would try Treacle Pudding.

It comes in a can.

Open the top of the can, run a knife around the inside, and then open the bottom of the can in order to express the cake thing out onto a microwavable platter.

It is imbued with "golden syrup." This photo does not do it justice. Mine had a gelatinous ring of treacle enshrouding the rounded edge of the top of the cake.

It tastes British.

My wife liked it, although it tasted "canned" to her.
