Choco Fruits Pudding

puddingRushing to get one’s hands on a luscious pudding after meal is a familiar sight in weddings and parties. Who doesn’t fall for a delectable treat when they invite us with their tempting appearance and arresting aroma? Everyone loves sweets, especially to conclude a meal as it gives a feeling of fullness. Sweet after food is more of a tradition and has been like that for years. The word Pudding comes from French word Boudin which originated from a Latin phrase botellus meaning a small sausage or encased meat which was then the medieval European pudding. Sweets are always associated with prizes, birthdays, weddings and all wonderful moments in our lives and hence linked to positive feeling and happiness. There is no reason why people go for a sweet ending always!!
