I've already had my third Christmas meal, and you can keep 'em coming. I love it all - terrines, turkey, pigs in blankets... and desserts. Delicious. Christmas pudding is a particular fave, but don't scrimp and buy a cheap one, it's the time of year to indulge after all. Go out and buy yourself a tasty Christmas treat from my top five Christmas puddings:

Tesco Finest Christmas Pudding, £5
We have a family tradition of setting the Christmas pudding alight, but this has caused damage on more than one occasion, so I will make sure that no-one brings a flame anywhere near this delicious dessert. It's loaded with juicy dried fruit (that have been soaked in English cider, brandy, sherry and vintage port) and although you will be full by the time you eat it - this boozy dessert will leave you wanting more... Where's my spoon!

Chrimbo Pud in a Box, £9.99
Christmas is a time to get all the family together, but there's usually a tricky customer to keep happy- gluten free, vegetarian... So, it's important to have something delicious to hand so that everyone can enjoy a tasty treat. The Chrimbo Pud in a Box' is sensational. The fabulously wrapped pudding has a delicious blend of spices; nutmeg, ground cinnamon, ginger and all spice - mixed together with juicy fruit. The pudding is so beautifully presented it would make an ideal Christmas present for gluten-free friends (just hope they'll open it while you're there, so you can taste how good it is!).

Perfectly Clear With A Twist of Christmas Pud
Available at Morrisons

Perfectly Clear have been taking tips from Willy Wonka this Christmas! And as Christmas is about having a little fun, why not keep this drink on hand for dieters who want the taste of dessert, without the calories!?  

Zizzi's Panettone, £9.95
Zizzi's Nationwide

Panettone is a traditional Italian cake, and a great alternative to Christmas pudding. Zizzi's Panettone is light and fluffy with plump raisins and sweet candied peel. It makes a brilliant breakfast light afternoon snack. For those with a sweet tooth, try chocolate Panettone, which is a perfect snack with hot chocolate!

Christmas Cupcake, £2.95
A twist on traditional Christmas pudding, try this cute cupcake from my favourite bakery, Hummingbird. The Christmas Cupcake is laced with rum brandy, exotic fruits and an almond scented frosting. Wow
