Dramatic display is very much a tasty thing (6)
S_A_I_
I am not sure that static electricity is a dramatic display. It is certainly not a tasty thing. If it is dramatic, how does it arise from the rest of the clue?
Thanks for any help available.

Thank you Mrs Trellis.
Soapie certainly fits the letters, but I don't see it as "a tasty thing", so I am not comfortable witht he parsing. Guess I'll wait for the Courier Mail tomorrow to check whether either is right.

You have made my night. So now I can sleep the sleep of the very just. A reminder to look at ever word in the clue.
