Angel Delight was launched in 1967 by the Bird's company with a strawberries-and-cream flavour. By the 1970s, Bird's had doubled the market for instant desserts. After a lull in popularity during the 1980s, a revival campaign, featuring Wallace & Gromit, was run in 1999. In 2006 the brand was the best-selling line in the UK instant cold desserts sector.
Angel Delight is currently sold in five flavours: strawberry, butterscotch, chocolate, mint chocolate, and banana. Two no-added-sugar variants in butterscotch and strawberry flavours are also sold. They are available in three variants: four-serving packets, twelve-serving tubs, and single-serving ready-to-eat cups.
To prepare an Angel Delight dessert, a single 59 g packet of dessert powder is added to a bowl containing 300 ml of milk. This is then whisked, either by hand or with an electric mixer until the dessert is smooth and creamy, and left for approximately five minutes to set.
