Yes, it's an English dessert-ish thing.

Quoting my_babies_n_me:

It's an English food, I think.

Spotted dick and custard
Origin
Place of origin United Kingdom
Creator(s) Alexis Soyer
Details
Type Pudding
Main ingredient(s) Suet, dried fruit

Spotted dick is a British steamed suet pudding containing dried fruit (usually currants or raisins) commonly served with custard. Spotted refers to the dried fruit (which resemble spots) and dick may be a contraction or corruption of the word pudding (from the last syllable) or possibly a corruption of the word dough[1] or dog, as "spotted dog" is another name for the same dish with the use of plums rather than currants. Another explanation offered for the word "dick" is that is the German word for "thick."

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the earliest documented reference is a recipe for "Plum Bolster, or Spotted Dick", in Alexis Soyer's The modern Housewife or ménagère (1849).[2][3]

Hospital managers at Gloucestershire NHS Trust (in 2001)[4] and the catering staff at Flintshire County Council (in 2009)[5] renamed the pudding Spotted Richard on menus because of the use of the word dick in the original name, a common dysphemism for male genitalia in the English language. Gloucestershire NHS Trust restored the original name in 2002. Flintshire County Council reversed their renaming after a few weeks.[6]

Yes, it is a real food, but it is more of an English food, and not found as often in the states.

I have actually tried it. Someone got it as a gag gift and paid someone $50 cash to try it. It honestly tasted like a really dry bread pudding. Would I eat it again NO, but it does make for an odd story!
