Angel Delight – a 1970s favorite
I’m really in love with Angel Delight, especially the butterscotch
flavour. What a magical new product this is. Add milk to the
powder, then whisk until it thickens to peaks of buttery, sugary,
foamy chemical alchemy. It’s finger lickingly good. But what is it
made from? There are no clues on the packet but why should I care?
I send my mother a coupon for a free packet explaining that it
takes less than a minute to make. She’s a busy primary school
headmistress, and Angel Delight could be her answer for speedy puds.
I get no thankyou’s in her letters back to me and I wonder if she’d say
‘it’s muck’ like she did when I tossed her lettuce, picked fresh from
her garden, in French dressing instead of using salad cream.

Convenience Foods. The class brings in a packet with their choice
