California Pizza Kitchen on left, Barbuzzo on right
Corporate pudding is theft! The California Pizza Kitchen wants you to try their Salted Caramel Pudding. Rich caramel pudding, black cocoa, cookie crumbs, homemade whipped cream, caramel sauce and of course, natural flaked sea salt. Sound delish? Well it should, it’s pretty much the exact same thing as Barbuzzo‘s Salted Caramel Budino which was voted best dessert by Philly Mag, right down to the mini-mason in which it’s served.

Hopefully no one will get shot at the Pudding Awards this year. But we do hope whomever takes home the “Puddie” gives respect to the other nominees. Also, look for a new season of Pudding Wars on A&E this fall.
