Aero Mini Egg

Aero Mini Egg

Earlier this week, Nestlé’s PR people got in touch to ask if they could send us some samples of their new Aero Mini Egg… and within a couple of hours of giving them the details, a courier turned up with a small packet containing five of them. Why can’t all chocolate be delivered that way..?

I ate three before I remembered I had to do a review. So I best get started.

First things first – the packaging is a little unusual. Rather than being simply wrapped in foil like most mini eggs, this one comes in a little plastic pouch. It certainly stands out as something different, but I’m not sure I like it. I don’t like plastic packaging much anyway, but with this particular wrapper, it’s almost impossible to tell that it’s either Aero or an egg at first glance. I would have thought that would be important for a new product.

Packaging aside, this is much as you’d expect. A little (24g) egg, roughly the size of a Creme Egg. Or a Mars Egg. Or a Cadbury Caramel Egg. Suffice to say, it’s egg size.

Now I have to admit, I’m not much of a fan of the full sized Aero. It’s just a bit too boring. But in this smaller, eggier form, I really quite liked it. Being a mixture of chocolate and air all the way through, it’s less sweet – and much lighter – than a Creme Egg, and I didn’t find myself feeling sick after having eaten three four of them.

So if you’re the kind of person that normally picks up a Creme Egg or three every time you go shopping, I’d recommend picking up one of these and giving it a go.

    I’d be a lot more interested if it was mint aero, which I love. Just choc aeros really ARE boring, and being in egg form isn’t enough to make me buy one

  2. I hope they have these in England. My sister will be there in 2 months as has offered to bring me home whatever I want. Do any readers (or the owner) have a suggestion??

    Becca – well we have them in England, but like most egg-shaped chocolates, they’re seasonal – I’m not sure they’ll be around in 2 months.

    But the UK has plenty more chocolates to choose from. I suggest going through our archives and making a list for your sister of anything that catches your attention. :)

  5. Why are Cadbury still selling Creme Eggs after Easter?
