Asda Sells Sweet Yorkshire Puddings for Yorkshire Day

British supermarket chain Asda is selling sweet Yorkshire puddings to celebrate Yorkshire Day, celebrated on August 1 to promote the historic English county of Yorkshire.

The chain, founded in Leeds, will be stocking Yorkshire puds with sweet fillings in its Yorkshire stores. The products, made in Yorkshire at Thorne, near Doncaster, will be available for a limited period beginning on Yorkshire Day.

The Yorkshires — made by the Real Yorkshire Pudding Company — with rhubarb and ginger crumble or toffee apple crumble will be sold with GBP1.50 each.

According to Asda: “Both have the crispiness of a Yorkshire pudding, are brimming with real fruit and topped with golden crunchy crumble, also made using Yorkshire pudding batter.”

Traditionally, the scraps of leftover Yorkshire puddings were used like pancakes and served with fruit, jam or syrup, British press explains.

“We’re so inspired by Yorkshire’s heritage; the desserts are made with locally sourced ingredients, such as the fresh rhubarb which is traditionally grown in the ‘rhubarb triangle’ of Yorkshire. Families can shake up their conventional dinner times or use the products as dessert with custard or ice cream, expanding the meal occasions in which Yorkshire puddings are eaten.”
