Are Asda really selling a Christmas pudding without gluten, eggs, dairy, nuts and soya?

Free from Christmas pudding by Asda
They've made it without eggs! May Asda be praised
Although my blog is more of a tranquil backwater than a raging torrent - stay with me - over on Facebook and Twitter I'm all jazz hands and chit chat.

And on Facebook in particular, I have some lovely followers who throw titbits of allergy information my way.

And thus it was (Warning: I'm now slipping into biblical/Christmas/Nativity speak) that on this very morn, the fragrant Gill Cain offered up some news from yonder hill.

For verily in the East, a star has been born. And it shall be called Asda, Prince of Allergy Sufferers (who knew?)

Do not be afraid for I bring good news.

Asda are selling a Christmas Pudding that features not gluten, eggs, dairy, nuts or nay even not soya. (Got a bit  grammatically confused there.)

Ding Dong Merrily on High!

Whether you like Xmas pud or not, get your gratitude on and go and buy one!

If you're a Twitter user, flood your feed with messages of thanks to @asda!

Are you more of a 'liker' than a tweeter? Then go and 'like' their page.

Let not this opportunity pass you by (back to biblical speak now) for 'tis now on this frosty morn that we must show our support for yonder big retailers who are making an effort.

Gather your Frankincense, Myrrh and whatever the third one was and show your support!

God rest ye Asda Gentlemen (and women)!

Recipe Junkie, yes, that's the acid test. (Watch this space. Ooo, cryptic.)

(I am now tracking down more! York sold out so sending Granparents on an emergency shopping trip in Asda Newcastle!)

Gill, yay verily forsooth, this is important news indeed! :-)

I'm playing telephone tag with a delivery man who is trying to deliver a pud to me courtesy of Asda so I can review it...

Oh my goodness! I have already made my christmas pudding this year as I have never managed to buy one - but I feel I may need to buy one anyway - and have 2!
