Black pudding is one variant of blood pudding/blood sausage. There are many different variations from lots of different countries. As you are in the USA you could have had any one of several different national versions of blood sausage

The british version is heavy on bacon accents to the flavour - not so much for the pine nuts, raisins, or cinnamon you get in some variants - no pig snouts either.

Here's the ingredients for a Bury black pudding (my preferred :P)

Water, Wheat Flour (with added calcium, iron, niacin & thiamin), Oatmeal, Pearl Barley, Dried Pork Blood, Pork Fat, Onion, Pork Rind, Salt, Mixed Herbs, Wheat Starch, White Pepper, Yeast Extract, Raising Agent: Ammonium Hydrogen Carbonate.
It's mainly flour, oatmeal and barley
