Reliving Childhood Pleasures: #AngelDelightMoments

28th October 2014
I’ve recently spent time thinking about all the little things I loved as a kid, to compare them what’s around now for Chunk.
I adored Rainbow, Trap Door and Fraggle Rock on TV and I’ve even bought some of the DVDs to share with Chunk how great children’s TV was in the eighties. 

When it comes to all things sweet, I used to loooove Cadbury Fuse bars, which sadly stopped being made a few years ago and to this day I still trawl the internet trying to find a recipe to recreate them!

As well as this, we would have a treat every now and then of chocolate mousse for our pudding, and it was always Angel Delight, because it’s quick, easy and very tasty. Thankfully it’s still around so Chunk gets to enjoy the same treat!

Chunk’s Bubblegum Angel Delight
Recently Angel Delight brought out a new flavour: Bubblegum. 
We were sent a couple of sachets to try and as soon as you open the packet you are hit by that familiar smell of bubblegum that took me back to my school days when my friends and I would compete to blow the biggest bubbles!
It’s a lovely, light, fluffy pink mousse which Chunk devoured within minutes, and I may experiment with it in profitteroles or as a milkshake over the coming weeks. 

I am more of a fan of all things chocolate these days, so I will remain loyal to Angel Delights’ chocolate mousse, but I think their bubblegum flavour may well become the flavour that my son’s generation will look back on when telling their own kids about their childhood pleasures!

What were your favourite things as a child?

For the purpose of this post I was sent two sachets of Bubblegum Angel Delight. This post is an entry for #AngelDelightMoments Linky Challenge.

    Oh my goodness, Fraggle Rock!! I liked Sesame Street, Why Don't You? and Curly Wurlys.

    I loved Angel Delight as a child but not so much now. My all time favourite was Artic roll, I remember when it first came out and just loved it!

    Ohhhh I often buy this in strawberry and it reminds me so much of when I was little! My kids love it too so it is a good excuse to buy and make it!

    I've never been an Angel Delight fan but someone mentioned pink custard the other day and I had not realised they still made the stuff. Now it calls to me every time I walk past the instant custard shelf in the supermarket. 🙂

    lol, I loved this as a kid too. We'd have it on top of a tin of fruit salad when we were kids. I didn't realise that you could still buy it x
