Test Your Pudding Arm

The World Black Pudding Throwing Championship is held annually in Ramsbottom, England.

It began in the 1980s and stands as a symbol of the rivalry between Lancashire and Yorkshire. The goal is to throw black puddings up at stacks of Yorkshire’s version of the dish and knock as many down as possible.

The black variety is a kind of sausage made with pig’s blood, and Yorkshire pudding is made from a batter of eggs, flour, and milk.


“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
