Sweetheart Dessert

Sweetheart Dessert

Sweetheart Dessert came in a tin and you bought it from Woolworths during the 70s. It was so easy to make: you poured the contents of the tin into a mixing bowl, filled up the tin with cold milk and poured it onto the concentrate, mixed it together and let it stand for a few minutes to thicken. My favourite was Orange Bug, but you could get Strawberry, too.

    My mum fed this to us all the time and I loved it. When my kids were young in the 90s I actually wrote to the manufacturer (was it Nestle? ?) to ask if I could still buy it, but alas no. It was probably packed full of sugar but it wss a great way of getting kids to take milk! Sadly missed!

    Thank you Vegpot. For years and years I've had it in my head that Bob Monkhouse had something to do with Sweetheart Dessert but no-one else could remember. 35 years later I have my answer! I loved the strawberry one. BigKid@heart

    You could get a pear one as well. It looked like wallpaper paste when it was made up but tasted lovely. I'd love to taste it again
