Please tell me what is correct:

I have never been more delighted with anything since
or
Since I have never been more delighted with anything

Context:

That happened still in my childhood. The lemonade dispenser got caught in an endless loop after my coin and began to pour lemonade continuously. (Since) I have never been more delighted with anything (since)

Thanks

Your first sentence is perfect in the context. Nice work! The second one needs "Since then, (with comma)," and then it's good too. :up:

:up: (An alternative to 'since then,' is 'ever since,' - still with a comma.)
