Guess what i spotted??

Wandering thru my local grocery store, i saw this!!! How could i not buy it and see what the heck is it. So anyway, here is the can......

And here is how it looks like inside. Its taste reminds me of a fruitcake or something.
Was curious how the name came about and after doing some googling, found out that the word dick came from the word pudding. So i guess after some mutations of the word pudding, it became puddink, then puddick and finally it was cut short and became dick. Thus dick is an English short for pudding. And the spotted is because of the raisins...thus spotted dick was the name it was given. Pretty interesting i must say. There you have it, a lesson in history.

Anyhow, here is what it looked like inside.
