A course eaten after dinner and before cheese, or after cheese but before cigars, or after cigars but before skinny-dipping.
Poodles (pudding noodles) can be eaten at any time of day. Be careful not to confuse with puddles.

Also cf. colloquial phrase 'you're a pudding', used as a threat to a mischievous child who makes a mess of himself. This phrase dates from a time when cannibalism was common in British society. The practice died out with the advent of the Industrial Revolution, when Quorn was invented. This is why it tastes like chicken.

very well spotted Dr. Theophilus, very few people other than Sir David Attenbrough and the Archduke Timmy Mallet, realize that a Quorn is in fact a large earth bound bird, hence the well known phrase "a Quorn, a Quorn, my kingdom for a Quorn!" uttered on that fatefull St Crispins day in 1066 by Vanessa Feltz!
