Angel Delight!

Blast from the past! We went shopping today. I usually avoid taking the children but it was a necessity. We needed more cake baking ingredients! When you shop online it's difficult to browse and so in a shop we sauntered around and I let the boys choose a few items. Lo and behold we wandered into some Angel Delight. I haven't had this for years and the boys never. They were drawn to the bright packets and it ended up in the trolley along with lots of chocolate, crisps, and Nerf guns!  None of which were on the list.   I have fond memories of my Nan thinking this packet food was such a modern treat. Well we followed the instructions and added some grated chocolate to the top and now they're hooked on a dried powder mix! The milk must have some nutritional value! The butterscotch was always my favourite flavour and remains so. Will you give away your age and admit to loving the stuff? What's your favourite flavour?

Look what I found on FOLKSY. How funny is that!

I apologise for writing a totally British blog post today! Angel Delight is a packet mix of flavour that you add milk to and it turns into a slightly set mousse dessert. It was very big in the 70's.


  1. Lol - you were so posh! Growing up we dreamt of Angel Delight but had to make do with Instant Whip.......

    Of course things are a bit better now, I've just counted 3 packs of Angel Delight, butterscotch flavour obviously, that I'd forgotten we had!

    Looking forward to pudding (or is it dessert, or 'afters'?) tonight!

  2. Instant whip! The few pennies really made a difference, so not the same! Definitely afters!Have you tried butterscoth schnapps? It's an alcoholic version. Mix it with baileys and it even looks similar.

  3. I like the sound of that!

  4. Ah I used to love angel delight! This post makes me want to go to the supermarket and make a bowl tonight. Will have to try the butterscotch schnapps.... sounds yummy :)
