An Apology

We would like to take this moment to say that we are deeply sorry for making Kozy Shack Pudding so absurdly delicious.

We had originally planned on making Kozy Shack Pudding just very delicious. Instead we made it absurdly delicious, and for that we apologize. We had no idea that it would create such a buying frenzy, leading to a pudding shortage.

Until we can make some more, we ask those whose last names begin with A through M to buy Kozy Shack Pudding on odd days. Those whose last names begin with N through Z, please buy Kozy Shack Pudding on even days. Kozy Shack Logo

Again, please accept our sincere apologies.

Current buying frenzy causing pudding shortage. Please, no hoarding.



Made with simple ingredients. Taste the pudding that’s so delicious, it’s absurd.


Both absurdly delicious and absurdly easy to make. Just flip the cup upside down.


Kozy Shack has grown from a neighborhood favorite to the #1 producer of rice and tapioca pudding in the US and Canada. But our love for pudding has been around since the beginning of time.
