Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Nestle Aero Shake International sighting: Nestle Aero Shake
Posted: 20:14 Thu 06-Jul-2006. Price: 185yen. Location: Donki, Fukuoka, Japan. Sub-flavours: Vanilla or strawberry.
"bobince" reports: Packaging is still over-the-top, with the large box containing a dozen individually-wrapped chunks, and a lot of lovely cheap space-filling air. However in this case the packaging does serve a real purpose: without the individual wraps you'd be overcome with the sickly stench of nasty confectionery on opening the box. The "vanilla milkshake" bubble-filling in Aero Shake is pretty grim, but it's the "chocolate" covering that really offends. It's that kind of foul faux-chocolate you used to get in no-brand cheapo "chocolate flavour candy"; quite what Nestlé think they're doing putting it in one of their leading products, and at this price-point, I don't know. Truly ghastly - the half-chunk I bit off to take the photo is all I could stand to eat. There's a strawberry milkshake version as well, which I am not masochistic enough to test for you. I advise sticking to the Sticky Toffee.

...A somewhat belated follow-up to "bobince's" comments on Japan's Aero M - fortunately, "laffytaffy" seemed slightly more upbeat about the Kraft Miracle Whip apparently selling for £1.79 in Tesco, Inverness, murmuring: I was quite amazed to see this in beside the mayo, I loved it when I was in the US but have to say it doesn't have the same kind of zing to it over here. It's a bit pricey for being newly introduced as well but I'm guessing it will keep the people who've been asking for UK Miracle Whip happy!

Comment: morrison's have stocked miracle whip for years! so these aero shakes are chocolate bars, not milkshakes? the hot chocolate on sale at the o2 wireless festival in leeds was the aero brand, but i didn't get to try it because i needed coffee.

Comment: Had Butterkist Fusion today (chocolate fudge clusters) which I liked but was too pricey at nearly £2.

Comment: > so these aero shakes are chocolate bars, not milkshakes?

Yes, except that they contain no actual chocolate. And don't taste of milkshake. Imagine more like sort of accreted dried vomitus. ta
