Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Bubbles Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Bubbles
Posted: 14:21 Tue 29-Mar-2005. Price: 43p. Location: Woolworths, Leeds. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Phillerena" reports: Aero seem to be trying to take on Maltesers with this new spinoff, as the packaging is the same size and shape as a bag of Maltesers. The "bubbles" themselves also look like Maltesers, apart from the fact that one half of each bubble is coloured green. They are actually small balls of mint-flavoured Aero coated in half milk choc and half green-coloured choc. The strange thing is that, unlike normal mint Aero, the bubbly inside bits aren't coloured green. They taste pleasant enough but I must admit I'm not a big fan of minty chocolate, though they do taste better than normal mint Aero. Bring on Sticky Toffee Aero I say...

..."Phillerena" is first with this latest Aero brand extension (there should be an "Irish Cream" one along too) - let's hope they stick around longer than the imported Nestle Lion Peanut that the Snackspotter formerly known as "Phil C" paid 25p for last year in FarmFoods, Selby, deducing: This is indeed foreign, as on the front it says: "Cena sugerowana". I bought it for 25p, and it tasted quite good, in fact better than normal Lion bars. This is because the peanuts packed in a more satisfying wholeness to the bar. It reminded me of a Snickers, but tasted a lot better. The peanuts tasted slightly salty and very crunchy. It says it contains "Nature identical peanut flavour", so I suspect a lot of the ingredients were lost in translation.

Comment: I just got these down at the Tesco/Esso station down on the Snottingham ring road in Basford. I'm fonder of mint choc than I am orange choc, so these are a big hit with me. Completely blew my good intentions, though, having started my lunchtime shop with a Healthy Eating sarnie and a banana.

Mint choc chip, by the way, is the most under-rated of ice cream flavours. Always one I choose when on the streets of Southern European towns.

Comment: Im not saying its the best thing since sliced bread, but I'm quite partial to mint flavoured confectionery, so the idea of this product truely thrills me. Although I am watchfull of what i eat, and quite circumspect when it comes to eating anything green, not related to the vegetable family.

Comment: Here,here. The only mint i will devour through chocolate is with a mint aero and these little bubbles of joy seem like a cunning venture in the whirl-wind world of todays confectionary market.

Comment: Having never tasted this particular item i must say i am uneducated in the field of which you are discussing. However i must say I'm rather hesistant to admit that my opinion towards the artefact at hand is biased, due to my vast approval of the minty goodness of it plainer cousin, Mint Aero. If i was as rich as i am pretending to sound then i would surely buy a quantity of at least one of these items.

Comment: Yes basil, if that is your real name, i think not kerry.... Yes well, cunning is one thing, but i would hardly think changing an aero into the form of "bubbles" demands skilful ingenuity, but hey whatever people wish to believe is food.

Comment: Not all as shocked as i was to see these on the shelves!! Back in september 2004 i initiated the idea of Aero Bubbles and the response i got was that they couldnt at the time produce it... But yet they have made it now!!

Comment: just got them in local 'one-stop', me and my friend have found they are most distracting as when you spin them, they make pretty colours! tasty too...

Comment: Tried these and loved them. Why did it take so long for them to come up with the idea and when can we expect multi-packs and mint aero kitkats?

Comment: Spotted: Aero Sticky Toffee in Tesco, Edinburgh. The bar is huge! Will wait until next weekend when I have someone to share it with!

Comment: Also spotted the Sticky Toffee and Irish Cream in my local Jacksons, York, along with what looked like a more official launch for the Nestlé Nuts.

The Aero bars are vast, and £1.39. If I wasn't already working through a surfiet of Easter Eggs, I might have tried them.

Comment: I just tried one myself. Tastes nice, but a bit like burnt sugar. £1.29 for me, na na na na...

Comment: Bought a big bag of these for about £1.30 at Sainsburys. At first I wasn't that impressed but once I acquired the correct technique - e.g. serve chilled, and let them melt in the mouth, I was hooked harder than Pete Doherty in a crack house.
