Proof is in the pudding

DEFINITION

The end results will determine if something is successful or not. Good looking pudding may not actually taste good until you eat some to test it. (Compare to Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.)

“Well our reorganization of the department is complete and if it works, well, the proof is in the pudding so we shall see.”
