Much to my surprise, I recently found out that blancmange originally included minced meat (mostly fowl) as an ingredient; along with sugar, cream, eggs and almonds etc. And rice. This is why in that episode of Friends where Phoebe makes a trifle with ground beef as one of the layers, it's uncanny. In the collective unconscious there is some blancmange. And that blancmange contains meat products.
