Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Filled Egg Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Filled Egg
Posted: 19:58 Sat 11-Apr-2009. Price: 40p. Location: Tesco, Finsbury Park. Nutritional unusualness: Possibly slightly "lower in calories" than other eggs, ie 128cal, 17.7g sugar.
"Paul Wolledge" reports: Saw this in a Tesco near home, never tried one before and was pleasantly surprised. Just in time for Easter, seems like Nestle has launched the new Aero Filled Egg. It's filled with a typically bubbly milk chocolate, in a smooth milk chocolate shell. Nice small size means you're never full and makes for a great little treat.

...First-time spotter "Paul Wolledge" gets straight to the point here with this followup to last year's Black Magic Truffle egg and Nestle's Double Cream egg of 2004. In other potentially-imminent price-cuts: "They are amazing!!" blurts "tom" regarding the Kinda Bueno Eggs he claims to have seen at 2 for 3 in Morrisons and, just in case things have changed in the world of Marshmallow Peeps in the last 5 years, blogger "Aaron" appears to be duplicating some of the good work done by Google with the news that he "just posted a story called Marshmallow Peeps on the Internet - A Study. I went around the web, found all the Peeps sites worth visiting, and put them in one place. 130 of them! Marshmallow Peeps are the 'bacon of the nineties' in that along with being delicious and bad for you, they've both captured the imagination of the internet."

No, I don't know whether he's saying that bacon "captured the imagination of the internet" in the nineties, or whether that's a more recent trend I've missed completely. Happy Easter everyone anyway - speaking of bacon, Foodstuff Finds seems to have spent the 5 quid or so that Selfridges are asking for a Vosges Haut Chocolate Mo's Bacon Bar, while "Lisa" - so far unilaterally - alleges: "Why may I ask that the beloved confectionery Smarties have gone and made themselves taste like someone, after just eating a packet of pickled onion crisps, has gone and touched every single one. When I bite into a Smartie, I look forward to the nice sugary taste from the coating but instead I now get this prominent taste of pickled onion crisps. It's not just me though, my friends and family members all think the same thing. Please discuss and try for yourselves."

Comment: For the purposes of scientific advancement I've just looked into this Smarties coating thing. It's slightly bitter I'll grant you, but pickled onion? Sorry, I just can't see it.

A happy St. Easter's Day to you all!
