Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Sticky Toffee Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Sticky Toffee
Posted: 19:31 Sun 17-Apr-2005. Price: 1.29. Location: Woolies, Leeds. Sub-flavours: There's meant to be an Irish Cream one. Nutritional unusualness: Toffee flavour bubbles.
"Phillerena" reports: At last it's here, Sticky Toffee Aero! When I opened the wrapper the "sticky toffee" smell hit me immediately. It smells very strongly of it, and indeed tastes very strongly of it. There isn't actually any toffee in it, and there is no stickiness, but the bubbles have a sticky toffee flavour. It tasted a bit too much of burnt sugar for my liking, but still very delicious. A little sickly if eaten in excess I imagine. Oh yeah, they have made the bars larger too.

..."Phillerena" here tracks down the second in the series of new Aero products that began with Nestle Aero Bubbles - and, according to this news story, seems to be correct about the new size as well: this flavour (and the still-mythical "Irish Cream" variant) is only available in the larger bar (150g compared to the previous 125g, "at no extra cost to the trade or the consumer"). In other Nestle novelties: The Grocer confirms that their rumoured Project Jewels Christmas "Quality Street variant" will be called Pizzazz ("A Fiesta Of Fine Chocolate") and comprise twist-wrapped "autonomous treats" in flavours like raspberry shortcake, lemon meringue and cookies 'n' cream; while July sees the launch of three Willy Wonka chocolate bars (Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight, Nutty Crunch Surprise, and Triple Dazzle Caramel, 45p each), to tie-in with Tim Burton's "re-imagining" of the mildly disturbing children's film.

Comment: I found Irish Cream Aero in Woolies, Edinburgh today. It was very sweet and, unsurprisingly, rather like Baileys. I wasn't overly impressed though really. The sticky toffee sounds nicer.

Comment: Oh yeah I had an Irish Cream version today, preferred it to the Sticky Toffee as it really does taste of Irish Cream. Also the mint and original Aero's now have "new cremier chocolate", which actually does taste better than the old ones.

Comment: How much? They better not dare charge much more for them than the RRP.

Comment: These big 150g bars are on offer in Woolies at any 2 for £1.60 right now. All 4 flavours are present - Irish Cream [not to my liking], Sticky Toffee [nice smell, nice taste], Mint [very nice], and Milk Chocolate [bit dull really - come back Strawberry].

Comment: I think they were about £1.75 at Cybercandy. I declined.

Comment: I don't understand Cybercandy cos as Magnetic said, you can get 2 for less than that in Woolies. It's not as if they're rare.

Comment: I brought mine from cybercandy and they were £1.79 each. I didn't realise they were way over priced at the time.

Comment: Just seen Irish Cream Aeros (along with Sticky Toffee) in the local snack emporium, but was too stuffed full of donuts to even contemplate buying one. Mmmm, donuts.

Comment: Finally got hold of sticky toffee and irish cream in Sainsbury's Milton Keynes Central.

Ew. Sticky Toffee is too sweet to be enjoyable - could only eat a bit at a time. Irish cream tastes like rum 'n' raisin fudge to me. Very disappointed. Still, forced myself to eat them.

Comment: Tried Sticky Toffee Aero last week, it was exceedingly sweet but just the right side of "too sweet".

Helped me immensely whilst trying to write reports for work.

Comment: Just had one of those Wonka Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight - a large 150g bar (ukp 1.50 or something). A little *too* scrumptious, as I polished it off in under an hour. No golden ticket, though.

Comment: fudgemallow delight?! from where?

Comment: I have tried one of the small bars, not bad but I wouldnt say they are amazing. Tried the nutty crunch surprise one too, the surprise is that it tastes of hazelnut but doesnt have any in it. It also has biscuit bits in it. Less impressive than the fudge one.

Comment: have you seen the new aero bubbles?

Comment: I've only seen this and Irish Cream in big bars. Shame, would like to try one.
Posted: 22:40 Thu 23-Jun-2005 by "Lee Maguire" # permalink comment
Comment: I've tried the other two (in the smaller sizes) "Nutty Crunch Suprise" has a biscuity centre instead of mallow, "Triple Dazzle Caramel" is a white chocolate variant with a caramel centre.

I think these bars only actually work fresh from a chiller cabinet - they don't take the heat well at all. Why Oh Why do chocolate companies schedule product launches for the hottest week of the year?

Comment: Yeah, I had some more Wonka bars today and they were all squidgy in the wrapper when I picked them up, so had to pop them in freezer when I got home. Please, use the chiller cabinets!

Comment: Tried 'Sticky Toffee' and 'Irish Cream' Aero. £1.22 each at Tesco. (Morrisons are doing 3 for 2 but don't stock all flavours) Sticky toffee tastes and smells just like 'Crunchie' bar - ie burnt sugar. Unfortunately, I don't like Crunchie, so won't buy another. Irish cream is a milder taste but not one I would buy again. Mint Aero is the best! Gimme that by the truckload :)

Comment: Mint Aero cannot be beaten. I really love the white chocolate Aero, but nothing touches mint. Try freezing them, it rules.

Comment: okay sticky toffee aero is really really too sweet. I would eat (almost) anything sweet and had to chuck this one n the bin after the first bite. Not good at all!

Comment: this aero bar is a ridicule, it resembles nothing of sticky toffee and is bloody well misleading, they ought to add a layer of sticky toffee to the bar before calling it sticky toffee aero, the bar is a normal flat aero bar with a horrid burnt toffee smell and is generally poor quality, avoid this 87530 2
