Park's bid for peace in black pudding wars

746279d8-52a5-429a-8e86-12aab49d329f

A Lancashire caravan park is to stage a black pudding "beauty contest" in a bid to avoid upsetting customers who can't agree on the authentic recipe.

Moss Wood Caravan Park near Lancaster says it has so far avoided stocking black puds in its new park shop because of conflicting views among holiday guests.

The shop is the centrepiece of a new building development, which opened in March and features Lancashire food and drink specialities.

But while suppliers of genuine Eccles cakes, ginger parkin, Lancashire cheese and local beers have proved uncontroversial, the county's most famous food is stirring deep emotions.

Customers have pointed to a number of different producers as the sole source for black puddings made the traditional way.

Now the park has decided to settle the dark dilemma democratically by holding a black pudding pageant, in which guests can vote on their favourite.

The pud getting the largest number of thumbs-up, based on both its appearance and taste, will be crowned as the shop's officially adopted brand.
