Ok look, we're sorry to shock you like this, but it has to be done. Like us, you have lived your entire life telling Americans that black pudding is "made from pigs' blood".

Your life has been a lie.

We found out this morning that the holy grail of all black puddings, the brand we all go to for a real tasty treat, is in fact made from BEEF. As in a cow, y'know?

Twitter user Roqueandrolle shared the discovery yesterday, and surely we can't be the only ones to be finding this out for the very first time?

And before you naysayers start going off on one, it's 100% true.

The lady speaketh the truth.

We don't know what to do with this information just yet. Do we embrace the humble cow and eat even more Clonakilty pudding than ever before?
