Angel Delight is a very familiar brand from my childhood and one that I buy today to enjoy with my children. I find the milky dessert is very quick and easy to prepare and one that the family all enjoy and devour as soon as their bowl arrives at the table!
With an array of flavours available and ready made individual pots too, it couldn’t be an easier dessert to have either at home or on the go.
Chocolate, strawberry, butterscotch and banana – which one shall we make first? Well I had two little helpers who couldn’t wait to get stuck in whisking the Angel Delight so they took turns at making a packet each until we had plenty of bowls of all the different flavours for people to taste and try out. We found the packets very simple to mix up, it only takes a little whisking and then it’s ready to pour into bowls. Leave for just a short while to set, I prefer to put in the fridge and then they are ready to eat whenever you wish.
The children wanted to decorate some pots with smarties which really brightened up the Angel Delight making them look like a proper after dinner treat that they were eager to eat. Chocolate proved (although I think we already knew) to be the favourite flavour amongst everyone and one we regularly buy and love. Strawberry was hit and miss, people either liked it or not but it was pleasant enough, just depends on your taste buds and if there is something more preferable available.
Butterscotch Angel Delight is a particular flavour that I remember from childhood and one we often ate back then but one that I don’t think of buying now. Having tasted it again we discovered it is a top favourite alongside chocolate and one that appealed to my testers of all ages from 6 up to 68 so a wide range. Definitely one to think about using in mini butterscotch trifles for a quick family dinner or party desserts.
We decided to use the banana flavour to make milkshakes and added extra milk to thin down the mixture. Being banana flavoured and of the colour yellow it was perfect for my minion mad son to enjoy. We did little milkshake shots for others to try and they went down well.
Overall it’s been great to experience the array of Angel Delight products available and I got positive feedback from anyone that popped in to taste some or took a little ready pot to try out. I think the instant pots are great for kids in their pack lunches or on a picnic but we prefer to use the packet Angel Delight ones at home to whisk up a bowl of fluffy, bubbly, milky deliciousness!
