See also: pudding
- Custard is not regarded as a single thing in German. It is referred to as Pudding when thick and as Soße (sauce) when thin.
- When known, e.g. because it is written on the package, one can refer to crèmes and the like by their proper name; often, however, Germans do not bother and refer to them as Pudding since for example a flavoured industrial yoghurt is often hard to tell apart from thin milk pudding.
