I think I must have had a bad experience with Aero as a child. I have never particularly liked them, but I’m not entirely sure why. I assume I was once given one and expected the bubbles to be fizzy and I never quite got over the disappointment. So, it was with some trepidation that I decided to try Mint Aero.
And I have to say, I’m still disappointed.
The mint bubbles taste a bit artificial and have a slightly strange aftertaste, and – more importantly – there’s just not enough chocolate! 1mm of chocolate does not make a satisfying chocsperience in my book…
Another minor annoyance is that despite being divided into handy chunks, the Mint Aero refuses to break along them, no matter how much I try. I find myself being showered with minty crumbles no matter how I try to eat it.
Having said all that, I did eat it all. But it wasn’t a totally satisfying experience. If you want minty chocolate, I suggest After Eights, and if you want bubbles, join my one man campaign to bring back Cadbury’s Wispa!
