The Prince Bonaparte Rules the World

At times, 
I can be slightly dramatic.

I've neem known to mae some fairly bold claims in my day.

I can't help it. 

I feel the moment. 

And last night,
I was really feeling it
when we were at 
the posh neighborhood pub,
and trying their sticky toffee pudding.

Listen to me, friends:
I eat a lot of dessert... a lot.

After countless bowls of this national treat,
I can confidently say:

This sticky toffee pudding is the best I have had.

While Napolean never achieved his dreams 
of world dominance,
The Prince Bonaparte has dominated all others
in this special recipe.

In case you think Sticky Toffee Pudding is,
as the name implies, a pudding like we know in America,
well, you're wrong.

"Pudding" is a term that just means dessert.

For example,
the classic Christmas "figgy pudding" 
that we all blindly reference in carols & plays
 is not a gelatinous clumpy mess, but a cake.

I know, it's confusing...
but don't worry about it.

Back to the matter at hand:

The cake is just perfect,
the caramel pool it sits in is just right...
and the clotted cream ice cream on top
makes the whole experience heavenly.

If you're searching for a serving of this famous cake
on your trip the England,
don't go anywhere else
other than Notting Hill.

And don't even think about sharing-
you'll be starting a war
that even Napolean would have avoided.

  10. I LOVE sticky toffee pudding! Though I strongly believe that my local pub's offering would be a strong contender for this one- it's BLOODY BRILLILANT.
