One of the owners - John Richie - is telling Heart the tried and tested different types of brands of pudding and thicknesses of batter before coming up with their unique dessert.

"It started off as a bit of a gimmick.

"We were just giving out for free on the counter for people waiting in the queues and people said they really liked it so we thought we may as well make a dessert out of it".

However not all of the festive themed prototypes worked:

"We tried mince pies last year, but they were a little bit heavy so we probably won't be doing that again."
