    I didn’t realise it was coming back. I’m pleased I’m ahead of the trend, as my children enjoy it. They call it ‘Pudding’ and we buy it from Lidl.

    Does anyone remember the other product sold at the time, Instant whip.

    Now you mention it, I think that was my favourite. icon_yum.gif Much better than Angel Delight.

    The only angel delight I ever liked was the coffee flavour. It stopped selling in the early 70s.It was silky smooth and tasted so good chilled. Does anyone remember the other product sold at the time, Instant whip. My kids used to be forever mixing a packet up. It did'nt have the density of flavour angel delight had and I always thought it was quite gloopy but kids loved it.

    Angel delight pales into insignificance compared to Instant Whip. :D

    We also used to have Junket, (made with rennet). :)

    It's sold in tins of the powder as well as the packets now, works out better value. Home Bargains sell it.

    We were never allowed Instant Whip as it was apparently 'a bit common' :), although Angel Delight wasn't, for some odd reason! I do occasionally eat it now but it's definitely not the same as it used to be. It used to be really, really thick but now it's much thinner and 'foamy'. I still love the butterscotch flavour but I miss the original version.

    I have tried junket a couple of times and I love the flavour (milk and nutmeg, yum) but I do find the texture a bit 'challenging'. It's a shame it's not more well known but I'm guessing that's because of the rennet.

    I used to love the supermarket own brand banana but all of a sudden a couple of years ago they all disappeared from literally! I may still have a few considerably out of date ones hanging about for a rainy day!

    But I absolutely refuse to spend an extra 20p to buy the "branded" for something I will ultimately shovel in my mouth within the space of a minute or so!

    Thanks, worth investigating.

    I wouldn't want my niece to miss out on such retro delights as I enjoyed in the 1970s/80s :D
