How do you improve upon the taste of a moist delicious cupcake? Shove pudding inside of it! That is exactly what the Pillsbury company did in 1985 with their Pudding Pocket and they were delicious.
The timing for their release was really good for me, in the mid-1980s, my sister was going through a baking phase. So she not only made the Pudding Pockets from the package, but also attempted to make her own homemade versions. If memory serves me right, they all turned out looking like a total mess, but the components for the pockets were all there. So messy or not, I would inhale the pudding, cake and frosting treats.
Don’t remember Pudding Pockets? Maybe this commercial will refresh your memory?
Now if you ever build that time machine and travel back to pick some up, make sure you get me a box of the mix. Here is a coupon with no expiration date that will help defray the cost.
