Did *you* know that Clonakilty black pudding is made from beef, not pork?


BLACK PUDDING IS one of the more unusual aspects of Irish cuisine.

Clonakilty pudding is famous the country over for being a particularly tasty example of the delicacy – but listen. They’ve been lying to us. Well, if not lying, they’ve certainly been leading us astray.

Twitter user Amelia (@roqueandrolle) shared this startling revelation earlier today:

And yes, it’s all right there on their website.

First made in the 1880s with a secret recipe that remains the same to this day, Clonakilty black pudding is Ireland’s favourite black pudding… [It is] made using traditional methods combining beef, oatmeal, onions, beef blood and a secret blend of spices.

The reaction to this news has been one of shock and betrayal:


“CONakilty.” LOL.

Were you aware? Do you care? Is your whole life now a lie?
