Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Limited Edition Dark Confirmed sighting: Nestle Aero Limited Edition Dark
Posted: 12:06 Sun 07-Nov-2010. Price: 53p. Location: Tesco (eg, Hoover Building, Perivale). Nutritional unusualness: 185cals.
"Gourmet" got in first with this 50% cocoa solids UK version of Japan's Aero M Bitter, making the remarkable claim that it's: "Very good, the best out of all the limited editions of your everyday confectionery," - though "izzy" begged to differ, adding that it seems to be: "Exclusively sold in Tesco, found this sitting innocently alongside all the other chocolate bars on the shelf... tasted like pretty cheap dark chocolate, nothing special, disappointed :("

...which tallies with my thoughts that the chocolate tastes a lot like 2005/6's various Dark Kit Kats. Nestle are also planning an Aero Luvabubble Lamb for next Easter, along with a Smarties-branded "chocolate moulded chicken with a chocolate egg inside" - part of a menagerie of upcoming animal tie-ins that include Mr Kipling's Big Frosty Fancy with a sugar bear, and Scooby-Doo versions of some of Swizzels Matlow's best-selling lines "scheduled to hit retail in first quarter 2011".

Comment: I've now had 3 of the Aeros. the smell is more appealing than the taste but I'm a sucker for any "dark" chocolate.

Comment: I've always liked an Aero every now and again i'm not a dark Chocolate lover so it doesnt apeal to me it's not the best chocolate in the world but it doesn't taste like soap. All in all you get what you pay for. Nice :)
