They are all absolutely paleo, with the same caveats as anything else: for the black pudding, is it all blood and meat, or are there fillers? If it is free of cheap fillers like grains, was the meat sustainably grown (Grass-fed, pastured, etc. depending on the animal)? For cashews, go for organic if it's in your means and local depending on where you live. Animal fat is perfectly healthy???not to mention delicious???as long as it's not raised in some kind of feedlot. Anything, really, is healthy if you know what's in it and where it came from.

Not sure about the black pudding, although I'm guessing it is not permitted as part of a Paleo diet :( But I believe cashews, lamb, and porkchops are "allowed". However, as there are considerably high amounts of fat in all 3 of these edibles, it IS of course recommended to eat them in moderation and you should also buy top quality. For snacking, maybe try mixing things up a little by sometimes eating almonds and pistachios rather than always cashews. Then, instead of only lamb or porkchops, try having fish or other seafood more frequently. Hope it helps - Happy Eating :)

1) No. I think there is flour somewhere in there. It is possible to make it in a way that meets the paleo standards, but it is unlikely. They will probably use some sort of grain filler.
2) It seems that cashews are not, in fact, legumes, as I have been told. My original answer was that they were not paleo, but the correction is in the comments, and it seems to be solid, from what I can google.
3) Yes. If they are store bought industrial pork chops they are likely to have a different fat composition than properly raised pigs. This is why we supplement with Omega-3. If there is something really off with pig fat, you will be able to notice it. It will actually taste rancid. It goes bad like old nuts go bad.
