If you had have asked me 1 year ago what Angel Delight meant to me? Instantly I would have said my childhood, and the seventies. I have fond memories of my Mum whipping up Angel Delight for a quick after dinner pudding, my Brothers and I loved it.
Angel Delight always felt like a real treat at a time when it wasn’t normal to have ready made chocolate mouse in the fridge. Yet these magical packets turned into the most delicious mousse as if by magic, we loved it.
I found the video below on youtube, It brings back such lovely childhood memories. Its weird how certain things take you back to certain moments in time is it? Angel delight is one of those triggers for me, its weird, I can see my old lounge, even the detail of the brown velvet flock wallpaper when I watch this video, it is so reminiscent of my childhood.
To be honest Angel Delight then slipped out of my radar for many years and became a pleasant childhood memory, just like Mr. Frosty and Twister.
Then a year ago the Boys Grandma bought them some chocolate Angel Delight and made chocolate milk shakes with them, they loved it. I must say I giggled to myself when they came home and excitedly told Chris and I about this great new invention; Angel Delight, that made the best ever American style milk shakes.
Ever since there has always been a pack of chocolate Angel Delight in the cupboard so the Boys can enjoy their beloved new invention. Jack generally takes charge of making Angel Delight shakes and had the idea of making them more contemporary and using Jars to serve them in.
So without further ado I would like to present bubble gum flavoured Angel Delight shake American Diner style made by Jack. And devoured by Joe in no time at all.
I love the way a favourite brand from my childhood has been reinvented into a cool milkshake, so reinvented my children think they have discovered a new invention. We had a great time making and styling it, and Joe had a great time drinking it.
