One of the most talked about scenes from Sunday's mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead saw Carl sat on a roof gobbling down a 112-ounce can of chocolate pudding.

So popular was Carl's enjoyment of the dessert, that was trending on Twitter and now executive producer and director of the episode, Greg Nicotero, has admitted there was even a pudding-based joke in the script that didn't make it into the final cut.

Speaking on TWD companion show, The Talking Dead, Nicotero revealed:

There’s something funny I can say. In the script, when Carl finds the jar of pudding…in the script, there was a line that said, ‘Pudding is awesome,’ that Kirman had written just as part of the description. And when we shot the scene, and Chandler climbs up onto the countertop, I actually shot a take where he said, ‘Pudding is awesome,’ when he grabbed it. It just felt kind of natural. It was really, really funny. And [Showrunner Scott] Gimple was like, ‘You know, he’s not really supposed to say it.’ I said, ‘I know, but it was funny. We shot it, and we put it in the cut.’ And then they were like, ‘No.

I think the line would have worked in the episode. The Walking Dead is such a humorless place that it would've been cool to get a bit of light relief. And pudding is awesome, so not only is it a funny line but it's also factually accurate.

Do you think the line should have been kept in? Sound off in the comments below.
