My First Time #3 - Weird Fruit

You know that bit of the fruit aisle where nobody goes? I went there!

As a continuation of my mission to try more things, I bought a small assortment of thing I had no idea what they were, let alone how to eat them! To say I was a little apprehensive would be an understatement, but you gotta try everything at least once! Besides, in this instance, I don’t think I know anyone else that’s tried this stuff either!

It’s funny to think that so much of the fruit we consider ‘normal’ is from just as far away as what I’m about to eat, and yet these things somehow never became popular. I’m guessing there’s a reason for that, which I’m about to find out! Haha!

My First Time #1 Spotted Dick

As much as I love ‘things’, it’s experiences that I think need to be collected. There are so many things I’ve never done, seen or tried, so I thought it was about time I started to change that.

I don’t really have a list, let alone a bucket list. This is more a case of, when opportunity arises, I’m going to choose the option I’ve never gone with before. A lot of the time, these might be small silly choices, but there are obviously a huge amount of places in the world I’ve never been, and things I’ve never seen!

This all started when I was food shopping and noticed that steamed puddings were on special. I love a steamed pudding when it’s cold outside... definitely a good winter warmer. Thing is, I’d never had Spotted Dick before, and wasn’t even entirely sure what it was. I mean obviously I’d heard of it before, and I still snigger a little bit like the child I am, but beyond that, I was pretty clueless... so I thought it was about time to try it... I mean it was on special anyway right?
