I had it this evening for the first time in, oh 150 years. (Had bought it thinking it might be good for camping, but forgot to take it)

We tried:
strawberry - meh
butterscotch - mmmmmm just as delicious as I remembered!

We never had it in our house when I was little (we were too intellectual for it you see) so I associate it with the weird ways of friends' houses. So - do people still actually eat it and on a scale of froot shoot to home-woven lentil, just how bad is it?

I love angel delight, it was always a childhood treat.

differentID Wed 03-Jun-09 22:27:52

I still eat it as I don't have dc yet. Oh, it's lovely and creamy and delicious and cold.


Darn, I want Angel Delight now! grrr.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Jun-09 22:29:07

I loved butterscotch instant whip as a kid.

I found sainsury's did a version the other day and bought it in glee, told dd that it was my favourite pudding when I was her age etc.

She didn't even like it shock. Silly child. DH and I polished it off instead.

muffle Wed 03-Jun-09 22:29:32

So - am I right that butterscotch is the best?

trixymalixy Wed 03-Jun-09 22:30:22

Oh yes butterscotch is definitely the best.

muffle Wed 03-Jun-09 22:30:32

Ah x-posted liath!

littlelamb Wed 03-Jun-09 22:30:35

Ah, fab stuff. Banana and butterscotch every time. My mum used to make it in these little bowls and put chocolate chips in a smiley face on the top That's dd's pudding sorted for tomorrow

We have recently rediscovered Angel Delight after many many years. DD had never had it and asked what it was, so we bought some - Butterscotch obviously. It was yummy and rather moreish too! DD loved it

whooosh Wed 03-Jun-09 22:32:20

Was a special treat as a child and butterscotch was definitely a fave.Have never exposed DD (4yrs) to it-maybe I should.....grin

muffle Wed 03-Jun-09 22:33:02

Yes DS was a bit less mindblown by it than I hoped. (Ate it all though)

differentID Wed 03-Jun-09 22:33:33

butterscotch first,
then chocolate- as long as you whisk it fast and hard enough to make sure it's ALL whisked in

any other flavours are poncy own-brand fakes and are gross

hf128219 Wed 03-Jun-09 22:35:20

Then Angel Delight

muffle Wed 03-Jun-09 22:35:48

I didn't even know there was chocolate! Didn't see that when I bought mine.

<reaches for shopping list>

Mmmm, it's lovely.

More of a Greggs sausage roll than a fruitshoot: naughty but yummy.

muffle Wed 03-Jun-09 22:36:27

What is that a nostalgic meal hf?

littlelamb Wed 03-Jun-09 22:37:01

Oh no now smash is a different matter entirely. Instant mashed potato? WHy??? I admit to feeling a bit superoir when watching Bodger and Badger (remember them eh? My best friend was recently at a wedding where Bodger also attended, but I digress) that we had real mash in our house

Thunderduck Wed 03-Jun-09 22:37:07

Banana is my favourite.

muffle Wed 03-Jun-09 22:42:43

I've never liked smash at all, but Sainsbury's own brand instant mash is quite nice. I used to have that a lot as a student.

differentID Wed 03-Jun-09 22:43:18

<puts hazmat suit on>

eww, banana is just foul Thunderduck!

southeastastra Wed 03-Jun-09 22:45:15

aw nice. we used to make angel delight and share it into six every sunday night. then add a tinned peach slice for garnish.

dietstartstomorrow Wed 03-Jun-09 22:45:40

I had it loads as a kid. Was the only thing my mum ever mixed in her food processor!

We thought we were well posh if it had tinned friut underneath grin

Think it's yuk now.

southeastastra Wed 03-Jun-09 22:46:13

my mum and dad grew up during the war though, so this to them (and us) was space food in the 70s grin like orange appeal

HecatesTwopenceworth Wed 03-Jun-09 22:46:52

I love it! Although recently I did give it to my kids who declared it "Yucky" and asked me for a "proper pudding" shock
