Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Nestle Aero M International sighting: Nestle Aero M
Posted: 19:22 Mon 05-Jun-2006. Price: 99 yen. Location: Donki (the confusing totally-random-goods shop), Fukuoka. Sub-flavours: Normal, or Bitter. Nutritional unusualness: 8g per serving of some kanji I am unable to read.
"bobince" reports: Following the success of Nestle's endless Japanese Kit Kat variants, the next brand they're concentrating on appears to be Aero. As with breaktown.com, now http://aero-land.jp/. Over here the standard Aero bar is the Chunky version - no old Rowntree's-style orange or mint-filled bars available, unfortunately. The new bars are named Aero M and Aero Shake - Aero M is so named because it's 'M'y 'M'ysterious 'M'elty and 'M'oussey air in chocolate, apparently - hope that clears up any confusion. It suffers from the typical Japanese excess packaging: inside the cardboard case is a plastic wrapper, which contains another cardboard sleeve holding the actual choccy. 'M'aybe this unwrapping game counts as the 'M'ysterious bit? Anyway it turns out not really to be 'M'oussey, but pretty much exactly like little Wispa bars. Tastes pretty good, especially the Bitter variant with plainer chocolate. And, despite the upmarket-styled packaging it's not bad value either. Hooray.

...Another bulletin here from international Nestle-spotter "bobince" - tune in next week for his views on Aero Shake, though I can't believe we missed out on the likes of Kit Kat Crispy Bees, Choco-Zinc, or Crab And Dung Special Sand.

Oh, the tension! Will Aero Shake turn out to be as pleasing an eat as this one? (Clue: not entirely.) What a cliff-hanger!

As for the Kit-Kats, the only special around here at the moment is the latest poshed-up box from Le Patissier Takagi. What has the fat-faced faux-French wonder boy come up with this time? Erm, "French Bretagne Milk", which turns out to be just the same as last year's White Hokkaido Milk, itself scarcely distinguishable from plain old White Kit-Kat. Only more expensive. Clever old Takagi!

Oh and also, there's a 'Citro' variant of Coke, with lemon *and* lime on the packaging. But it isn't very good. Hope that helps. 95416 0 45
