Gastromy : Pudding tasting

On the scale of 1 to 5, how would you rate the appearance of this pudding?
.
Mine, would be 1 as it simply doesn't appeal to me. I put off tasting the pudding as long as since I moved here. Last Monday, I did it! I finally gave it a chance..and all I can say is beauty is only skin deep!

The pudding, csíramálé or wheat germ pudding, is made from wheat germ, sweetened with honey. I was told that the 100 year-old pudding is a specialty of our town and the surrounding areas. As the name suggests, the pudding contains loads of health benefits ; however, it is still not widely known in other counties (states). Zsolt, have you tried / seen this?

je n'ai jamais mange de pudding, on n'en trouve pas beaucoup en France (pas du tout à Evry). Je dirais qu'il a une belle tete, je lui mettrais 3.

I never have eats pudding, one does not find any much in France (at all in Evry). I would say that it has a beautiful head, I would put 3 to him.

to be honest I never seen this before maybe its very local. I also would rate it 1. But one is sure, in Hungarian we don't call it pudding.

I'm sure is very yummy... but the appearance is ... well, 2 :(

Cheers!

My rating? Definitely a one! It is too wet! Looks unappetizing to me.

I am confused. If beauty is only skin deep, and you are not impressed with the beauty of the product, what does that say for the taste?

:P
from its appearance, i think of the glutinous rice dumplings in China, those salty ones.
:))

i think i would try it just from its appearance...:) i like the colour of chocolate!

have to be frank - it's 0.5 to me, lol

ruth said...

I agree with Bill, I'm not sure, did you like it? I would definitely try this, would give it maybe a 2.5 for appearance. But I like pudding.

mad said...

It looks nothing like Jell-O pudding, but then I would give it a try.

Victoria said...

It looks a bit like bread pudding to me, which I associate with yumminess! So, I'd give it a 4 for looks...but, I love pudding.

Looks kind of sticky and too moist but it does resemble bread pudding so maybe I would give it a try. it probably tastes better than it looks.

Sounds great... So did you meet up with the Budapest Duo when they were invading your territory and tasting great food?

Kris said...

Bill,
it tasted not bad at all, its light and refreshing..very much like wheat grasss juice.
