If you think back to your childhood, what are the foods you used to eat when you got home from school; in front of Bodger And Badger?
Dairylea Snackables? Frubes? For me, it was a whopping great bowl of Angel Delight – ideally butterscotch Angel Delight.
If you were/still are obsessed with this tasty pudding, we predict the news that it now comes in ice cream form will make you very happy indeed.
Iceland has just announced that it is launching Angel Delight ice cream tubs.
The new soft serve-style ice cream has been inspired by the famous airy texture of the original nostalgic dessert, which was first sold back in 1967.
This tasty frozen treat is available in strawberry and butterscotch flavour, and an 800ml tub meant for sharing (we’ll see…) will set you back £3.
This new ice cream joins Iceland’s Ambrosia and Mr Kipling ice cream tubs, which were trialled in stores last year. They’ve been such a huge hit, the supermarket has decided to keep selling them.
Daniel Jalapour, Desserts Brand Director at Premier Foods, said: “The response we saw from shoppers when the Mr Kipling and Ambrosia ice creams were announced was phenomenal. Iceland saw a 785 per cent increase in shoppers searching for the products on their website before they were even in stores so we know fans will be delighted they can get their hands on the tubs all year round alongside our new Angel Delight Soft Serve Ice Cream tubs.
“Angel Delight has long been considered a classic nostalgic dessert and we wanted to give fans a modern and cool twist on the iconic taste.”
Andrew Staniland, Trading Director at Iceland, said: “Following the outstanding success of the Ambrosia and Mr Kipling flavours reimagined into ice creams, we wanted to deliver yet another iconic brand into the mix, Angel Delight. We’re confident customers will be heading straight to Iceland’s ice cream freezers as soon as they launch next week to try out those old-time favourite flavours once again.”
