Which is healthier

Black pudding
51(86.4%)
Chicken nuggets
8(13.6%)

How many unique props are there in a Buffy season 2 readthrough (eg if a stake is mentioned in 2 separate scenes, it counts as 1, but if two stakes are on stage at the same time, they count as 2)

I'm not sure which is better for the body, but the black pudding is hugely better for the soul.

I suspect it depends on whether or not the chicken nuggets are deep fat fried and how much batter they have, but I'd bet on them being surprisingly healthy if you cooked them right.

My experience as a barman working in a pub that sold full English breakfasts tells me the answer is Black pudding. I lost count of the times punters would start eagerly tucking in to their meal while asking what the black pudding was. When I told them there was usually a pause....then it would get pushed to the side of their plate. Thus were the calories counted.

A brief online search suggests it depends on how the black pudding is cooked: if fried, it probably contains more fat and calories than the chicken nuggets; if steamed, less.

Black pudding probably has more minerals than chicken nuggets, even if it also contains more fat.

Black pudding makes me happy.
Chicken nuggets do not make me happy.

The choice is easy.

As oft mentioned, I figure it depends on what you mean by both and how they are cooked. If you're talking KFC vs. a good, honest black pudding; I'd go for the black pudding. On the other hand if I made chicken nuggets they'd probably be pretty healthy - they're basically chicken breast and breadcrumbs, after all.

Also depends how you're defining healthy - expected quality adjusted life years gained from a black pudding compared to equal weight of chicken nuggets? I see a few quality preferences in above answers :)

Depends on if the nuggets are deep-fat fried or grilled.

But black pudding is evil and scary, so my choice is made!

Either in moderation.

I don't care which is healthier, black pudding is blatantly real food compared to chicken nuggets (as opposed to actual pieces of chicken in breadcrumbs) and is much tastier too.

I suspect, for black pudding, the satisfaction:calories ratio[1] is better, plus black pudding ought to be better for micronutrients and stuff. But, hey, they're both carnie food, so my knowledge of these things is rapidly fading.

[1] What's healthy depends on your circumstances, of course, but some circumstances are common and some are not.

Black pudding is a food and contains nutrients. Chicken Nuggets on the other hand are a fast-food abomination (bits of chicken in breadcrumbs made yourself probably aren't chicken nuggets in my book). Calorie content is pretty irrelevant, what's interesting is nutritional value per calorie content and IMLE fast-food has basically no nutritional value beyond calories (it always leaves me wanting to eat something else due to not having been adequately fed; although it can work for 'need calories now').
