    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.

    :rotfl: we were common then... loved instant whip and yes I'm a junket fan too. Just got some rennet off Amazon and have gone back 40 years to when my Gran made it.

    This takes me back.

    I remember as a teenager being taken home for tea by my then boyfriend. I struggled through a bowl of Angel Delight, horrible sloppy stuff, to be polite. At home we always had home made puddings.

    Some years ago I tuned into a WAG version of Come Dine with Me just to be nosey with the tasteless blingy houses. There was a WAG on there and the pudding she made was a disaster so she whipped up some of the stuff, called her French husband for a quick translation and passed it off as Delice des Anges.

    Oh I hadn't had angel delight for decades, then I got into baking cakes and biscuits. For lava cake you need angel delight----other brands available, I did chocolate lava cake with butterscotch AD <<<makes the lava bit
    Lovely. Must now go buy giant tins of it in home bargains and make more cakes, some milk shakes and maybe the actual dessert.
