“ Type: Other Desserts „
For many years, Angel Delight has been a favourite of mine. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and so something like this is ideal. More recently, with a tighter budget, I have turned away from the Angel Delight range to Tesco's own range of Delight treats. To me, they seem exactly the same as Angel Delight, maybe a little less full in flavour, but tasty nonetheless.
That is, apart from the Banana flavoured one. Normally, I steer clear of anything that is banana flavoured. While I like bananas as a fruit, for some reason the flavbouring side of it has never appealed to me. And the same can be said of the Tesco Banana flavoured Delight.
It comes in a 49g packet, and if you add the recommended 150ml of milk it will give you 185 calories. 6.6 of the 49g is in fat, with 9.2 of it in sugar. This is no surprise. The packet is easy enough to open, and the powder inside is a pale yellow colour. To serve, all you need to do is add milk and whisk it up. This can be done according to how you like your treat. I normally have it a bit runnier than my wife does, she prefers a sort of mousse, which is the general serving suggestion.
Once you have mixed it how you want, leave it in the fridge for 10 minutes or so. This helps it solidify a little, and keeps it nice and cool for eating. Like I said, the problem with the banana is the flavour. To me, it seems full of chemicals, and while it does taste a little of banana, it is more like the little banana penny sweets you get which are full of additives and flavourings. I am afraid I wasn;t able to finish this serving, and my wife tried some and was of the same opinion. However, the other flavours in the range are very nice, particularly the chocolate and the butterscotch, so don't be completely dissuaded.
A packet of the Tesco Delight will cost around 35p, whereas Angel Delight costs 47p.
