How to Choose a Dessert Pot in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Decide on Your Preferred Flavour and Texture
  2. Vegans and Those With Dairy Allergies Should Look for a Plant-Based Pot
  3. Check if the Container Is Made From Plastic or Glass

1. Select the Flavour of Your Dessert According to Your Menu and Mood

 1. Select the Flavour of Your Dessert According to Your Menu and Mood

Choose Chocolate, Salted Caramel or Cheesecake if You’re in the Mood for a Decadent Dessert

There's something very satisfying about a classic pudding such as a layered cheesecake, a salted caramel pudding or even a simple pot of chocolate. These types of desserts often need to be heated up, so they're the perfect comfort food in the colder weather.


We think that a rich pudding with one of these flavours is the best choice if you're serving up a fancy dinner for guests and want to save time on the dessert whilst still offering a sophisticated end to the meal! Who can deny the burst of joy that a choccy pud provides?

Check out some of our favourite mouthwatering cheesecakes!

If You Fancy Something Fresh-Tasting, Try a Pot Made With Tropical Fruit

Let's face it, not all of us are fans of decadent desserts as they can be a bit stodgy. After a heavy meal, something light and refreshing is a more suitable way to round off the evening — this is where fruity dessert pots come in!


A pudding made with tropical ingredients like zesty passion fruit and sweet banana makes a wonderful choice for a summer treat. Plus, the sour tang of passion fruit is great if straightforward sweetness feels too much for you. 

Feeling Nostalgic? Go For a Retro Dessert Like Jelly, Custard or Rice Pudding

How about a nostalgic throwback such as wobbly jelly, creamy custard or a stodgy rice pudding like your grandma used to make? These retro desserts are a wonderful choice if you're feeling glum or in need of comfort.


Traditionally these desserts need some prep-time, so if you're looking for a simple mid-week treat but don't want the hassle of making it yourself then a ready-to-eat version is a superb choice!

Read all about the best creamy custards here if you need more recommendations.

2. Vegans and Those With Dairy Allergies Should Check Out Plant-Based Pots Made With Coconut Cream or Soya

2. Vegans and Those With Dairy Allergies Should Check Out Plant-Based Pots Made With Coconut Cream or Soya

Nowadays, more and more of us are opting for tasty plant-based desserts, meaning that companies are constantly striving to produce delicious dairy-free alternatives to your favourite puddings. 


Dessert pots made with soy or coconut cream are popular options for vegans and those who are allergic to milk, as they have a similar consistency to dairy. Plus, coconut also offers a subtle taste that doesn't overpower other flavours.

Craving cruelty-free treats? We love these yummy vegan desserts!

3. Look For Desserts in Glass Pots That Can Be Reused, or Make Sure You Recycle Plastic Containers

3. Look For Desserts in Glass Pots That Can Be Reused, or Make Sure You Recycle Plastic Containers

While it feels almost impossible to avoid plastic when shopping for groceries these days, it can be worth thinking about recyclable and reusable packaging options. It's good to research whether and how your council recycles plastic pots so you can dispose of them in the greenest way possible. 


Alternatively, some brands use glass which is much more eco-friendly as it's very widely recycled. You could also reuse glass pots as tealight holders or use them for storing homemade desserts!
