Confirmed sighting: Milky Way Shake It
Posted: 12:25 Wed 19-03-2003. Price: £1.29 for 2 sachets + shaker. Location: Sainsbury. Sub-flavours: Chocolate, Strawberry. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
Snackspot reports: almost in answer to Snackspot's February plea for shakes that get thicker when you shake them, comes the astonishing dual-use technology of Milky Way Shake It Thick Milkshake - or Mousse Dessert. Depending whether you add 250ml or 150ml of milk, 30 seconds of shaking produces either a very sweet, mildly gelatinous milkshake which tastes of Angel Delight, or (after an additional hour's refrigeration) 2 portions of Angel Delight-style dessert that doesn't taste very much like a Milky Way. Raising the question: can you use normal Angel Delight mix to make milkshakes too? With the "Shaker Pack", the key - as ever - is in the small print. More specifically, step 3: "Replace the lid and ensure that it is fixed tight". It doesn't screw on or anything, so you can't quite tell how tight it is. Rest assured, there'll be a lot of kids redecorating kitchens with Milky Way Mousse Drinks tonight!

Comment: You should be able to make milkshakes from Angel Delight - I recall making it up thinner and then freezing in ice-lolly moulds to make milk-type lollies, should work non-frozen too.

Comment: Yep you can make Angel Delight into milkshake - I encountered a stall last year giving out free samples of Angel Delight, as milkshake, traditionally and frozen.

Comment: Use half the packet of Angel Delight with the full amount of milk. Best to drink straight away (I've never tried leaving it in the fridge afterwards - it might set eventually, but I doubt it). I normally add in a couple of spoonfuls of the appropriate flavour of ice cream as well and then whisk it in.

Comment: Waitrose in Woodly (Reading) yet again come through with these new treats. Using the 'shaker' resulted in a lump milkly drink (most of the powder failed to disolve). Using an electric handwhisk was more successful - giving a thick and chocolatey drink; but still a fair amount of lumps at the bottom. Angel delight works much better, with zero lumps. I go for 500ml milk to 1 pack plus some vanilla ice cream, yum yum

Comment: Developments in milkshake technology continue with this cunningly dual-purpose Milky Way-branded beverage which doubles as a pudding. Fill the cocktail-shaker cup with 150ml of milk, add the contents of the powder sachet, do your best Tom-Cruise-in-Cocktail impression then refrigerate for an hour and you’ve got two servings of mousse. Put an extra 100ml of milk in, however, then shake it like a Polaroid picture and you’ve got a ready-to-drink frothy milkshake.

The packaging says 30 seconds of agitation will do the trick, but it actually took well over a minute of vigorous shake, rattle and rolling to get even most of the powder dissolved, and even then there were still lots of gritty little bits left in it. Taste-wise it’s halfway between a real milkshake and a McDonald’s chemical atrocity, and on the whole it’s just not worth all the effort.
