The indulgent pudding creates an element of drama at the dining table when warm toffee sauce is poured over the top and melts the golden chocolate dome. And at $15 it’s a penny-saving way to add a theatrical moment – and a delicious chocolate-y dessert – to your Christmas day festivities.
Coles Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Ronson said Coles wants to inspire customers at this special time of the year and help make their lives easier so they can spend more time with friends and family.
“At Coles we are customer-obsessed, and this year we have developed products which are unique and most importantly delicious for Christmas and the entire entertaining season,” Lisa said.
“We have committed to making Coles an Own Brand powerhouse, and at Christmas time that means helping customers to bring magic to their entertaining with this fantastic brand-new range. We’ve really focussed on developing products which are easy to prepare, great value and will help customers impress their family and friends.”
But it’s not just Coles Finest Luxury Melting Chocolate Pudding that will make an impact at Christmas this year.
