Growing up I had a lot of Angel Delight! It was my mums thinking that it is a great way of getting calcium in kids and I guess she must be right. When you get your packet of Angel Delight you empty the contents into a big mixing bowl. Then add your milk and whisk! Without having an electric whisk this can take an absolute age and it really makes your arms ache! I do not have an electric whisk, if I did then no question I would deffinately use one!
You whisk the angel delight powder with the milk until it goes really thick, or until your arm is about to fall off! Then empty your mixture into your serving bowls or glasses, pop in the fridge for as good few hours and then your done and ready to enjoy your yummy pudding!
There are many different flavours of angel delight including strawberry, bananas, and chocolate, butterscotch is my favourite! You can also add hundreds and thousands on top to make your desert extra special.
I have also tried Angel Delight Ice Cream, you make this up in exactly the same way but put it in the freezer. It doesn't turn exactly into ice cream as it is creamier and less solid than standard ice cream and I really like this.
I remember that Angel Delight used to be around everywhere and it was really popular. It seems now that it is becoming less and less popular but I'm not sure why as it is still so yummy!
Ever since I was a child I have always had some what of a sweet tooth and as a result I have been a fan of 'Angel Delight ever since.
It is the perfect easy to make, low calorie dessert that everyone can enjoy. It comes in the form of a powder containing around 92 grams and 89 grams in each sachet, and all you do is add milk and whisk it until it is of the consistence or thickness you want it to be and then it is ready to eat.
'Angel Delight' comes in two different varieties: the first being the 'standard' range, which contains flavours such as 'Banana', 'Butterscotch' and 'Raspberry' and a 'no added sugar' range which has flavors such as 'Strawberry' and 'Chocolate'.
This dessert is also very filling, I think it might have something to do with the amount of milk one sachet requires which is around 300 to 400 ml and also because the amount of air that is whisked into it whilst it thickens, in saying this one sachet can easily satisfy two people.
There is only a small difference between the two sachet in terms of calorific content, the 'Standard Angel Delight' contains 92 grams of powder per sachet at only 449 calories and the 'No added sugar Angel Delight' contains 89 grams of powder which amounts to 348 calories per sachet.
Personally I would go for the 'No added sugar' range as it is healthier but because it also tastes exactly the same as the 'Standard' version but with 100 less calories. One word of advice when making 'Angel Delight' is to get out the electrical whisk, because trying to whisk it by hand can be very tiring especially as it gets thicker.
Overall I love 'Angel Delight' it has defiantly become my go to dessert as it is low calorie, easy to make, very filling and tastes so good.
A tad annoyed as I had almost finished this review when my internet froze, hopefully I won't leave out anything in this rewrite!
Angel Delight is a well known whip dessert. It's been around a long time- I remember having it many times as a child. It's very simple to make- all you need is a satchet, 300ml of milk and a whisk- manual or electric.
I have Angel Delight fairly often- once a month at least, twice a week at most. I'd probably have it more often but milk goes quite quickly in my house! My toddler drinks tons of it and my partner is a milk, tea and cereal with large amounts of milk addict!
I definitly don't get my reccomended amount of calcium. I don't like normal milk, i don't like hot drinks (so no milk from tea/coffee/hot chocolate), I have my cereal dry and I don't like many cheeses. The only calcium I get other than Angel Delight is from Cathedral City Cheese of which I grate copious amounts over pasta!
While Angel Delight may not be the healthiest way to up my calcium levels I'm sure its better than nothing at all!
Its a versatile dessert and can be made as a whip, smoothie or icelolly. I have only had it as a whip myself but I plan to try the ice lolly version as soon as i get some moulds. I personally think the icelollys would taste quite similar to mini milks.
You can have it plain or add in other ingredients- my choices include: strawberries (in strawberry angel delight), mini marshmellows or sprinkles.
I have tried a few other brands of whip but none have come close to Angel Delight. I find the cheaper versions often come out quite foamy and sickly in comparison to Angel Delights smoothness.
As I mentioned earlier in the review it is very simple to make- you pour the Angel Delight powder in a bowl, measure our 300 ml of milk, add the milk and whisk for a few minutes. I personally prefer to use an electric whisk- it saves my hand from aching and ensures it is fully whisked, a manual whisk however will work just as well. There is no need to chill this dessert if you are intending to eat it once its ready- just leave it on the side for 5 minutes to set. Obviously if you want to store it for later or store part of it then it will need to be stored in the fridge.
Angel Delight comes in a variety of flavours and currently is priced at 49p for one satchet (Tesco).
The nutritional information does vary from pack to pack but as an example the Standard Strawberry satchet basic nutritional values are:
Per 92g serving prepared with semi skinned milk:
13.9 carbs (11.6 of which sugars)
4.4g fat (3.4 of which saturates)
0.2 sodium (0.49 equivalent as salt)
Overall I think its an incredibly tasty and cheap dessert although a tad high in sugar. Its good to have in the cupboard for a quick and easy to make dessert also.
Angel Delight now also make an icecream mix but I haven't yet tried it- I hear its not as simple as the whip version.
I haven't had Angel Delight for years, not since I was little when like most children I loved the whip style dessert. I never buy it I prefer to cook from scratch but recently a packet of the new ice cream Angle Delight dropped through my letter box. It was a freebie my dad had sent for for me. I had never heard of Angel Delight Ice cream but being married to an ice cream addict I knew it would be well received.
The Angel Delight is packaged in the same style pack as the regular one, in fact I don't think the pack style has changed that much since I was a child. Its a blue pack with Angel Delight written across the front. It informs the customer that it is vanilla flavoured ice cream mix. There's a picture of an ice cream cornet with a strawberry, toffee sauce and marsh mallows in the ice cream. These are serving suggestions. The front of the pack also gives some nutrional information. These are given per 100mls of the product made with semi skimmed milk and are:-
The back of the pack gives the instructions and some suggestions for adding different things to the ice cream. These include fudge or biscuits pieces, fruit, toffee sauce, jam and peanut butter. Really its just anything you personally like.
I decided to make the Angel Delight one weekend and on opening the pack you will find white powder that really didn't smell much like vanilla at all. It just has a sweet smell. Anyway I followed the instructions and poured 150ml's of chilled milk into a bowl. I added the ice cream powder and whisked the mixture with an electric whisk.
After whisking it for the required 5 minuets it had certainly doubled in size as the packet said it would and was like a light foam. I had a quick taste and it didn't really resemble ice cream. It reminded me of the milk bottle penny sweets I used to buy. Slightly dubious about the so called ice cream I poured it into a sealed container and popped it into the freezer for at least 4 hours as instructed.
I got it out of the freezer approximately 5 hours later and it was frozen well around the edges of the container but the middle was still quite soft. We decided to eat some from around the edge and although frozen it was like a soft scoop ice cream s there was no problems getting it from the container.
The ice cream, although quite a nice flavour, still didn't really taste like ice cream. It still tasted a bit like the milk bottle penny sweets and left an after taste in my mouth. It is more milky than vanilla ice cream flavour. The angel delight where frozen was icy and didn't have that much taste. the softer parts of it still had in my opinion a foamy consistency. I would say this pack would serve 4 to 6 portions of ice cream but of course it depends on the individual.
All in all any resemblance to ice cream was very poor, neither of us were very keen. It might taste better with some fruit or sauce swirled through it at the mixing stage but personally I wont be buying it. I could imagine it appealing to children but as for ice cream I think I will stick to making my own.
Angel Delight is an incredibly simple concept but one which both my partner and I adore, it is basically a powder which when added to milk, whisked vigorously and left in the fridge to set, produces a beautifully fluffy, 'Angel Delight' of a dessert.
Angel Delight has been around for donkeys years and comes in a variety of flavours, Banana, Butterscotch, Chocolate, Raspberry and Strawberry.
As well as being a wonderful dessert, it can also be used to create smoothies, floats or ice lollies, the real delight of this product is the flavour is heavenly, it is sweet and whilst it clearly isn't fresh, it has a huge hit of the particular flavour you buy.
It is available in all decent supermarkets and costs 39p per packet, it is simple to make and simply requires milk and the packet. They come in small sachet bags and can also be bought as supermarket own brands.
In terms of making it you pour the sachet into a bowl, mix in 300 ml of measured cold milk and then whisk it strongly until you see bubbles on the top, you then refrigerate your angel delight until it solidifies.
I love the smooth milky flavour, I know it is man made, but the strawberry, vanilla and butterscotch all taste authentic, they are lovely mixed with whipped cream or ice cream, I find they don't taste so great mixed with fruit as more often than not any liquid from the fruit seems to affect the consistency of the angel delight.
Overall they are easy to store, simple to make and taste great, one sachet should be enough for two people but it can always be refrigerated and saved for the next evening if you live alone.
light, tasty, very cheap and simple to make, this is a must have in our kitchen and is loved by the whole family.
When I was a child we used to have instant whip which was so delicious. It was made with one pint of milk so there was always plenty to go round. Then it disappeared off the shelves so we bought Angel Delight instead. This was just as nice but you only used half a pint of milk so unless you made up two packets there wasn't as much (which probably wasn't a bad thing as we used to pour double cream over it and add a Cadbury's flake!).
I haven't had it for a few years (trying to eat more healthily) but recently I thought I'd treat the family so bought a butterscotch one (always my favourite), but oh what a disappointment, it was revolting. It had a weird sickly taste and was so sweet I couldn't eat it. It wasn't the 'no added sugar' one so shouldn't have sweeteners in it so I've no idea what's happened to it.
Since joining Dooyoo there have been a good few products I've seen that had all but gone out of my head. Products that were a big part of my childhood had faded into obscurity. Angel Delight may well be the biggest example of this for me.
Originally launched in 1967 Angel Delight is bought in little sachets filled with flavoured powder. There are only five flavours being butterscotch, raspberry, bannana strawberry and chocolate. I personally have only tried two, strawberry which was ok but I'm not massively into fruit flavoured things as a very general rule, and chocolate which was absolutely beautiful.
It is incredibly easy to make as well, just pour in some cold milk and whip it until it firms up to a consistency a little thicker than custard and there you go. Then you've got the inevitable fight with your sibling as to who gets the serving bowl to scrape clean.
It really is that simple, once made it can go on pretty much anything. I used to love the chocolate variety on tinned pears but you could just as easily eat it on it's own, it's that good.
Whats more I dislike custard and I'm not a fan of sauces, so the fact that I adore this stuff is testament to how good it is. Apparently it is Britains leader in instant cold desserts (you learn something new everyday).
Ease of preperation, a beautifully sweet (but not overtly so) taste and a choice of flavours that should tempt all sorts go together to make a desert that was big in my childhood and apparently is still flying off the shelves.
I'm going down to Tesco tommorow to try and get my hands on a few packets, if I can pick some up I will spend the next 3 days in a sub human chocolate funk, weeping with unbridled joy.
Reccomended to everybody unless you really hate deserts. Almost instant preperation and a truly great result that goes on everything.
My friends and I have been meeting up every few weeks to watch 80's films, we take it in turns to choose what we're watching and last night I decided to call in at Tesco's on my way over to pick up some sweet treats. That's when I noticed a packet of Strawberry Angel Delight on the shelf... 'What a fab idea' I thought, 'we can eat a desert that will take us back to our childhood, while watching a film that also transports us back to the same period. Genius!'
Angel delight is a desert that comes in powder form, you whisk it together with milk and it forms a mouse. I was born in 1985 and as a child I can remember eating Angel Delight in my friend's back garden and having it served up by the dinner lady at school in a silver desert bowl. I literally hadn't tasted Angel Delight in years... but last night I revisited my childhood...

******************** My opinion *********************
Angel Delight is quick and easy to make, each 47g pack will comfortably serve two people and you need to be sure that you don't forget the fresh milk!
Once you have whisked the delight together - which will cause a little mess - the mouse is really easy to serve.
Angel Delight seems to have a hint of the flavour on the packet (be that strawberry, chocolate, banana or butterscotch), but it isn't too overpowering or sweet.
The mouse itself is really light tasting and goes down well after a big dinner because it isn't too filling. It is fairly low in calories and doesn't contain any added sugar, artificial colours, artificial flavours, or preservatives, so I'd happily serve it up to kids and adults alike!
I really enjoyed revisiting my youth last night and I recommend Angel Delight to everybody - five out of five stars!
Angel Delight is a delicious treat for my grandchildren, they love it and so do I. It's a rich creamy desert that has been around for years and years, its simple to make, infact its so simple to make that small children can make it if you supervise them and they can then put it in little dishes and decorate it for their desert as a treat.
Angel Delight will cost you anything from 40p to 99p depending on where you buy it you can often get it buy two get one free at the Co-op when its on offer and at Tesco's it is cheap to buy too.
You can get various flavours, Strawberry, Butterscotch, Chocolate and Banana. My favorite is banana but the grandchildren like chocolate which is no surprise.
Making your Angel delight is easy, just pour the contents of the packet into a mixing bowl, the power inside the packets is usually coloured to the flavour you buy, pink for starwberry, brown for chocolate, yellow for banana and light browny yellow for the butterscotch. The powder actually smells like the flavour you buy so its appertising when you add the milk as you can smell the flavour.
Mix half a pint of milk into the powder and whisk like mad. if you have an electric mixer it is easier to make, but does thicken up quickly with a hand mixer.
Once the consistancy of the Angel Delight has thickened you can then pour iot into a bowl or individual dishes for it to set in the fridge, this doesn't take too long and once the Angel delight is set, you can decorate the top with chocolate sprinkles, angelica, crushed nuts, chocolate buttons, which is the grandchildrens favourite, or just eat it plain.
I love Angel delight as its quick and easy to make, if my daughter rings me in the morning to say she's coming over i can make it quickly and pop it in thne fridge to set and its ready for tea time, you don't have to wait for it to set overnight like some deserts.
Per 89g serving as prepared with semi-skimmed milk:
of which sugars 5.3g
of which saturates 2.6g
Salt Equivalent 0.46g
The calorie content is not too bad , its still a nice desert for a treat, not to be eaten everyday but its a good quick desert for visitors at short notice.
I like the creamy consitancy and the rich taste of Angel delight although I'm not to keen on the Butterscotch flavour the other ones are all fine. If your looking for a quick easy desert to make for the kids to enjoy, then look no further as they will love this.
Angel Delight is available in 5 horrible flavours each as horrid as the next, Banana, Butterscotch, Chocolate, Raspberry and Strawberry. As you can tell i personally do not like Angel delight but alot of children love the stuff.
Angel delight is a powder which you add milk to and whisk, it turns into some sort of whipped mousse dessert. It is great as a quick dessert to feed the kids if they have friends over or a small kids party or just as a treat really!
The Angel delight website has a few tips on how to spice up this bland desert. You can make it into milky ice lollys, fuity smoothies or ice cream milkshakes which sounds a bit more appetising than having a bowl full of foul tasting goopy mess!
They also having a sugar free range for those concerned parents or just those that are watching the waste line! these flavours include; Strawberry, Butterscotch and Chocolate.
So all in all, it tastes foul but kids love it and it's quick and easy to make!
Angel Delight was originally launched back in 1967 by the Bird's company and came in strawberries and cream flavour, which does sound quite yummy. After a decline in popularity in the 80's, it is now the best selling instant cold dessert in the U.K. It now comes in strawberry, raspberry, banana, butterscotch and chocolate flavour, strawberry being the favourite in our house.
Angel Delight comes in a foil packet, which is easily opened by ripping at the top, so nothing technical there. You have to carefully add the powder, to half a pint of cold milk. I say carefully because if you rush into it, you will be enveloped by a cloud of sweet tasting powder, which gets everywhere. Been there, done that and had the mess to clean up!
I find that a couple of minutes of brisk whisking, will give you a pudding which is quite thick. I then pop the mixture into three individual bowls and place them in the fridge, until they are well and truly set.
Sometimes I like to make this very simple pudding a bit fancier. I re-use muller rice pots, as I find these are the perfect size and crush a digestive biscuit into the bottom of each one. I will then spoon the Angel Delight in until they are half-way full. Next I add a nice squirt of Anchor real dairy cream and sprinkle on some hundreds and thousands. It amazing just how nice it looks and it is so easy and economical to make.
When made up, I find strawberry Angel Delight to be a lovely shade of pink. It has quite a thick consistency and is covered in tiny bubbles, which keep it light and fluffy. It has a nice light strawberry scent and flavour, which does smell and taste natural. This dessert makes a great snack at any time of the day, as it is not overly filling and will not ruin your appetite before dinner.

I think this is a great price for a pudding which does three people. I have to buy 2 packs, which we eat between the five of us and there is never any left over.
I remember Angel Delight from childhood and now my kids have happy memories of it too.
Who knows how long this lovely little dessert will be around!
I used a be a huge fan of Angel Delight a few years ago. Back then you would always finds a couple of packets lurking in my cupboard ready for nights when I had the urge for something sweet after our evening meal. I loved the fact that it was cheap, quick and easy to prepare and that it tasted absolutely marvelous.
For some reason I just stopped stocking up on it and until this week I probably hadn't had it for about 2-3 years. Yesterday however I was just grabbing a couple of bits from Tescos and my two girls were being particularly scrummy and I decided that I would get them a treat. I was going to get them a tin of rice pudding but then I spotted the packets of Angel Delight. I'm normally really mean and give them quite boring and healthy puddings like plain yoghurt and fruit so I knew they would absolutely love something so sweet and naughty.
I selfishly opted for Butterscotch flavour as this was always my own favourite and a packet found itself into my shopping basket. I believe a packet cost 38p and this is probably enough for 4 smallish servings or 2 great big massive ones.
That evening after they had polished off their evening meal, I decided to make up the angel delight for my girls. It's so quick and easy to make and all you need is some milk and a whisk or even a fork. The great thing is that you don't need to make this up and leave it to set or chill. Instead you can serve it up straight away as soon as you have the right consistancy. This is a huge bonus point when you are disorganised and have two impatient little ones.
Well no suprises... they absolutely loved it... I think they thought all their Christmasses had come at once. Both girls polished every last mouthful with a cheeky delighted sparkle in their eyes. I have to admit, I did save a little portion for myself... just for old times sake, and it didn't disappoint. The familiar sweet butterscotch taste was totally scrummy and just as good as I remembered. This light fluffy dessert doesn't leave you feeling podged or sickly, instead you have just enough of a sweet hit to leave you feeling satisfied.
I will be definately buy this again and wont' leave it so long next time.
Bird's (who were responsible for bringing us Instant Powdered Custard) launched Angel Delight in 1967. It is a dessert which comes in powdered form. After combining the powder with milk & whisking thoroughly, you get a set dessert rather similar to a mousse.
The original flavour was Strawberries & Cream & there are currently five flavours on the market which are Banana, Butterscotch, Chocolate, Raspberry & Strawberry. A packet tends to cost around the 40p mark
I find Angel Delight very distinct. There isn't anything else in the supermarket that is similar. It can be set in a glass to be eaten alone or it can be combined with a trifle. It is very versatile. I find it's flavour to be very subtle & gentle (also read mild & child friendly). I think that it tastes nice although for my own taste, I wish it packed a little more punch. If it has been made well, it has a smooth & silky texture. It it hasn't been made well it can be lumpy with powdery bits. How much you like it will depend a lot on your personal taste & how well you turn the powder into the dessert. Another downside is artificial flavours & preservatives.
I have no problem recommending the product. It is very useful for home baking & be combined into a lot of different desserts or made to be eaten alone. Not a bad product at all. Just not the most flavoursome.
This is a favourite from my childhood, and I was very glad to fid that my children (and my husband!) love it too. We hadn't had any of it for ages and suddenly felt the urge several weeks ago, but having only remembered to buy some at last a week ago, we eventually managed to enjoy one again a couple of days ago!
I'm very relieved to find that it is just as delicious as ever (no 'new and improved' label thank goodness). It has to be one of the simplest packet puds to make, and a great kid-participation exercise too. A basin containing 300ml/half a pint of milk (semi-skimmed or whole, skimmed isn't recommended on the pack), scatter the packet's contents on the surface, and whisk for four or five minutes until it's good and frothy. Leave it to one side (doesn't need to be in the fridge) for a few minutes to settle, by which time it should be a firm mousse-like consistency and ready to eat.
I have to confess that we shared the pack between two of us - it says that it's enough for four servings, so I'm guessing that it should really be served into small dessert bowls rather than eaten straight from the mixing bowl with a couple of spoons! We used to make it go three ways when I was a kid as it was just my parents and me. It has a beautifully light texture and butterscotch taste, the flavour is still exactly as I remember, and there is no grease or nasty aftertaste. As we used the ordinary full sugar version, nutritionally speaking it's the carbohydrates that come out highest, calorie-wise if you split it four ways and use semi-skimmed milk though it's only 115kcal. The only allergy advice on the packet is for the milk content.
The only downside for me (and this will have been made worse by scoffing a double portion) is that the bubbles do tend to produce a bloating effect. However, it's worth it for the occasional treat :-))
Emulsifiers: Propane 1,2 diol esters of fatty acids, Sunflower lecithin
Gelling agents: Tetrasodium Diphosphate, Disodium Phosphate
Colours: Plain Caramel, Annato, Beetroot Red, Mixed Carotenes
Whey powder from milk
Anti-caking agent: silicon dioxide
Angel Delight...Now where do I start?
When my seven year old daughter asked for a packet of this while we were wondering down the aisles of Tesco, I was immediately transported back to her age, when my Mum bought us kids this as an occasional treat. It is very affordable but none too healthy.
The packet is nothing like how I remembered it to be (as picture above). It is now blue, with a big pink fluffy cloud on the front. The brand name - Angel Delight takes up approximately half of the packet. I think it is quite funny that there is a halo over the letter 'g' in Angel, considering its nutritional values (which are to follow).
If you are looking for a quick, easy dessert this couldn't quicker or easier. The directions for use are:
1. Pour 300ml of chilled semi-skimmed or whole milk into a basin.
2. Stir in the contents of the packet and whish vigorously.
3. Leave to thicken for 5 minutes to thicken.
And that's it. I have made this using skimmed milk but it doesn't seem to thicken much, it's very sloppy. The taste is there but it's more like a smooth yoghurt.
Nutritional values ~ per serving , when made with semi-skimmed milk
Energy 107 cal
Of which are sugars 11.8g
Of which are saturates 3.4g
Salt equivalent 0.48g
Warnings ~ contains Milk (obviously)
If you use whole fat milk, the nutritional values will alter and I would expect the calories and fat to double.
Although the packet states that a portion is 92g, so this packet will serve four, realistically this will only serve two people, thereby doubling the figures again.
After all is said and done, this makes a light and fluffy dessert with a similar texture to a mousse. The flavours are natural, and do not taste synthetic although, the ingredients list doesn't actually say there is actually any raspberry in it. They have the flavours spot on, in my opinion.
There are some tasty serving suggestions on the back of the packet.
1. Pour over fresh fruit (another way to make it go further and cut down on calories and get some extra vitamins at the same time)
2. Layer different flavours in a tall glass. This looks really effective.
3. Pour into a mould - not one to try if you do use skimmed milk, as it is then too sloppy to attempt.
Overall, this is a quick, simple dessert that can be made easily by anyone, including children. It is to be used as a occasional treat only, sadly it's not one we will be enjoying too often in our household.
