Used as a lure by The Childcatcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, this classic British pudding is all sorts of wrong. The main ingredient is a by-product of industrial sugar refining. On the misleading marketing front, it doesn’t however contain any treacle: just traditional golden syrup, a British favourite since the 19th century. You could replace half of the syrup with honey, not that it’d make it any healthier.
