    Jar good pudding. Also butterscotch.

      Trader Joe's - I think it's called Belgian dark chocolate pudding. In a pint-sized container (or roughly that size) in the refrigerated dairy section.

            cool, gotta try this...funny how some products at TJ can really surprise you...we like the 85% dark chocolate lovers chocolate bar (2 bars in a pack, like $1.75 or so)

              Just tried TJs pudding based on this thread and loved it. Kinda like Jello chocolate pudding, but with a much better, richer chocolate flavor. It tasted like a custard version of a really good chocolate sorbet. Thanks for the rec, guys.

              Also, TJs tapioca and rice puddings are really really good. They all have the same great sweet custard base.

            The Riders Club Cafe in San Clemente. Worth the drive for the chocolate pudding alone. The burgers and beer selection are worthy as well.

              Well worth the calories, as well as the gas bill.

                I used to love that chocolate mousse at La Scala. I have no idea if they still even serve it.

                    Platine in Culver City has a delicious chocolate pot de crème with black lava salt. The ceramic containers and bamboo spoons are adorable and I've brought it for picnics at the Hollywood Bowl.

                          The passion fruit version is excellent too.

                              Sorry Kev - my bad. I read Clementine but saw Huckleberry. Huckleberry has a nice chocolate pudding as well as one made with passion fruit.

                                  I guess that probably means that "Hinoki and Flip me the Bird" would be on that list too then?

                                    i guess.

                                    i'm just joking.

                                    i think i can still hit up huckleberry if they let me in. :)

                                    i don't want to ruffle your feathers any more today.

                            And I think you really have to decide. Pudding love and pot de creme love are actually really different things.

                            Bouchon has pot de creme and chocolate mousse.

                                That's true. :)

                                But sometimes one really needs a to-go fix.

                                I think.

                                  Only problem is he needs bigger bowls. But that plus the lime ice cream...
