I can’t remember the first time I tried Angel Delight, but I know it was a big part of my childhood memories. Angel Delight was one of those puddings that was a real treat. My Mum I think hated the grind of cooking after school, and even back in the 70’s when I was little there wasn’t the convenience food that we have today. Meals were all home cooked, and there never seemed to be time for pudding.
Angel Delight became one of those quick easy and I am sure slightly good for you puddings. I hated milk! Even now the smell is enough to make me feel a bit queasy. I think the smell of the warm school milk was what started my hatred off. I was a fussy eater and my Mum was always nagging me to eat so I guess Angel delight became a good way for me to get my daily intake of calcium. All I know was Angel delight was something we were allowed to make ourselves. Me and my brother used to add banana toppings and hundreds and thousands which we called ants. Chocolate Angel Delight was amongst our favourites but Butterscotch was at the top.
Fast forward 20+ years and it was good to rediscover the love of Angel Delight through the eyes of the boy. He likes to hide surprises at the bottom of the bowl, sometimes fruit and sometimes chocolate. Sprinkles have gone the colours of the rainbow, and now we have squirty cream. He says to add height!
So when the boy gets home from school today and sees his surprise pudding I hope he will be as excited as I was all those years ago to be having an after school pudding treat. Even if it is just so I can use up the left over milk before we go away on holiday!
