“ Brand: Nestle / Type: Egg „
As it was the weekend me and my husband decided to have a bit of a treat in the evening and opened another of our Easter Eggs that we had been bought by our families. We decided to give the Aero Bubbles Easter Egg a try, personally I love mint chocolate so was keen to have some of the Aero Bubble chocolates that came inside with the egg, I have always liked mint Aero chocolate bars but cannot remember trying the Aero Mint Bubbles so I was actually quite looking forward to trying this particular egg.
The Aero Bubbles egg came in a mint green coloured cardboard box which was wider at the bottom and narrowed towards the top. The Nestle logo appeared at the top of the box along with the words "Aero Bubbles", the majority of the box was covered in pictures of Aero Bubbles chocolates and balloons with a picture of the egg broken in half at the bottom of the box, this showed the Aero Bubbles inside the actual egg, sad as it is I was quite excited about this as when I was younger the sweets which came with your Easter Egg always came inside the actual egg and you had to break it to get them out, whereas now the chocolate bar or sweets come separate inside the box so to actually find an egg where the sweets were still kept inside it was a bit different. There is an egg shaped hole cut into the front of the box allowing you to see part of the egg inside, this seems to be the case with most Easter Eggs boxes. The back of the box contains all of the product information such as a description of the egg, the ingredients and all of the nutritional information, also on the back of the box is the recycling information for the packaging itself. All of this information is clearly set out and easy to read.
Inside the box you received a large milk chocolate, hollow egg made from Nestle chocolate, this comes wrapped in a gold coloured foil. When unwrapped, it had a slight pattern on the outside. The egg only needed a light tap to crack it in half where inside was a plain white packet containing the Aero Mint Bubbles, you only received one bag of these, a couple would have been nice, however you did get quite a few of the bubbles inside the bag. The chocolate that the egg was made from was of a reasonable thickness and basically the same as most standard Easter Eggs, the chocolate had a lovely creamy taste to it which we both found enjoyable. The Aero Bubbles were very similar to Aero chocolate bars other than the fact that they came in ball shapes rather than a bar. The bubbles were basically milk chocolate balls which when you bit into them contained a light green bubbly substance with a mint flavour, exactly the same as the Aero chocolate bars. I actually found these to be very tasty as I do really like the combination of mint and chocolate.
The nutritional information as I have said appears on the back of the box, the information is separated into two sections one for the hollow chocolate egg and the other for the Aero Mint Balls, this I found very handy as you knew exactly what you were eating.

I have to admit I do have a bit of a thing about checking the calories and fat content on products so when it came to the Aero Easter Egg this was no different. I wasn't really surprised at the calorie and fat content of the actual hollow egg, although it was slightly higher compared to other Easter Eggs we have had, these have been around the same amount for half of the egg where as with this egg it is only per quarter, but I guess different brands of chocolate are different. What I was most surprised about was the Aero Bubbles, I really thought they would be lower in calories especially due to the bubbly inside, however the one small bag you received inside the egg there were nearly 200 calories and you really do not get that many bubbles in a bag. Whilst they were very enjoyable as a treat they are not something I would eat on a regular basis due to the high calorie content.
Price & Availability
Obviously we received this egg as a gift so did not buy it ourselves, however I actually purchased the same egg as a gift for someone else. I know that this particular egg is available in most supermarkets, when I bought mine I purchased it from my local Tesco, a couple of weeks before Easter the egg was being sold for £2.97, however a week later the same egg was being sold for nearly £6.00. When the egg was £2.97 I thought this was a good price for it, however when the price went up I would definitely say that it was over priced, for nearly £6.00 you really do not get a massive a amount of chocolate and I do think that is far to much to pay for one hollow chocolate egg and one bag of Aero bubbles.
Overall I would recommend the Aero Bubbles Easter Egg, the Nestle chocolate is of an excellent quality and has a lovely creamy taste and texture to it. Personally I really enjoyed the Aero bubbles as I love mint chocolate, however it is a shame that you do not get more than one bag of these with the egg. With this particular Easter Egg I liked the way that the Aero Bubbles came inside the main hollow chocolate egg as this is how they used to be when I was a child and most eggs now have the sweets or chocolate bars separate inside the box rather than inside the egg so this was also an added bonus with this egg. For me the only down side would be the calories and fat content of the chocolate but as a treat at the weekend I can over look that, the only other disadvantage would be the high price it was sold for just before Easter, but again I cannot really complain about this as I managed to get mine before the price went up and the egg we had was one we received as a gift. Overall I would definitely recommend the Aero Bubbles Easter Egg, especially if like me you are a fan of mint chocolate.
This is yet another Easter egg we received this year, it's an Aero egg with a pack of Aero Bubbles. I think this size egg would cost about £2.99 but am not sure because I haven't seen this actual egg in the shops and it was a present to my sister from our aunt.
It's a big egg and the chocolate is quite thick, we didn't get the mint one that Dooyoo have got up in the picture and the box was pure brown and like a creamy colour. The Aero Bubbles are inside the egg in a plain pack and you get about 10 - 12 Bubbles so that's not quite a full pack but having them with the egg means that doesn't matter because it's big time chocolate over load anyway! lol
The egg is made with mega thick chocolate, it's got like a tortoise pattern on the outside of the egg and smells majorly strong of chocolate. The actual egg has got the flavour of an Aero bar and I reckon it's a bit of a shame that they can't make it a bit bubbly because that would be delish. The chocolate is mega smooth and creamy, it's got a yummy sweet flavour that isn't as sickly as other Easter eggs I've had.
The Aero Bubbles chocolates are delish, I've had them a few times but not very often so I was glad when my sister said she didn't like them and gave me the bag. They're a bit bigger than I remember and are made out of milk chocolate with a lovely bubbly middle, it's kind of like an Aero chocolate bar and tastes proper nice because when the bubbles melt in your mouth you get a strong rich chocolate flavour. You can pop a bubble in your mouth and suck it so that each one will take for ages to eat, when I ate the pack I started seeing how long I could suck the Bubbles for before the chocolate melted completely.
I love this chocolate, it's delish with a sweet and creamy flavour. It's one of not many Easter eggs that actually TASTE of the chocolate bar they're supposed to be and not just cheap stuff.
Recommended.... for next Easter!!!
Our sweet-toothed bunny brought my sons two huge Nestlé Aero Easter Eggs. They came in brown cardboard box which has a picture about the egg shell broken into half and some chocolate balls. The egg inside the box is wrapped in golden foil. After we opened it we found a yummy milk chocolate egg in it. It has really nice chocolatey scent. After breaking the egg we found that the chocolate balls are wrapped in a white plastic bag. There are about ten little balls in the bag. They are made of bubbling chocolate coated with milk chocolate. Can you imagine more delight?
The egg shell is made of really creamy milk chocolate that melts quickly in your mouse and if you are not too quick also in your hand. We had to clean my younger one all over because he had a chocolate treatment all over his body. He looked really funny. Nestlé's milk chocolate is really delicious but I prefer Cadbury to this one.
We bought the eggs for about 5 pounds. I can't remember the exact price but it was on offer in Tesco so we paid one and get the second one for free. The box says it contains 235 g chocolate.
The ingredients of the egg shell are as follows: sugar, dried whole milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegetable fat, dried skimmed milk, emulsifier (soya lecithin), butterfat. May contain nut traces.
The ingredients of the Aero Bubbles are: milk chocolate (sugar, dried whole milk, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, vegetable fat, whey powder, lactose, emulsifier (soya lecithin), butterfat, flavouring) glazing agent (gum Arabic), sugar, glucose syrup, vegetable fat.
The eggshell contains 544 kcal energy/100g while the Aero Bubbles 538 kcal/100g. This energy content is about average in case of milk chocolates but regarding the dietary side it is quite a lot. So after I finished typing the previous sentence I put the rest of the egg a metre away from me because it is too tempting.
How did the bunny give the eggs to my sons? The bunny has hidden them in our garden so my sons were out on egg hunting. They found loads of chocolate eggs. There were hidden among their outdoor toys and even near some flowers. There were Cadbury Eggs, Milka chocolate bunny, Kinder Surprise Egg and Nestlé's Aero Bubble Easter Egg among the gifts. This year we decided not to buy them further toys as we have as many as a nursery. So they got only chocolate eggs. As we give them only a little it will last a couple of days until they eat them all.
I think it was a good decision buying Nestle Aero Bubbles Easter Egg because it was of premium quality and the milk chocolate is really delicious. I still prefer Cadbury to any other brand but we have to try other brands to know which our favourite is. As Nestle Aero is really good I rate it 5/5. There is slight difference between the premium quality chocolates and this one definitely belongs to them. Let's hope the bunny will bring you one next Easter.
My husband received the milk chocolate one of these a couple of days ago, and yes he has already eaten it (with some help from me) before Easter but we have got 6 Easter eggs to get through, so thought we would start early.
I'm not sure how much it costs as it was a gift, but it says on the box that it contains one milk chocolate Easter egg and one pack of aero bubbles. When I opened the box, I expected to see the packet of bubbles and be able to pinch them and claim them as my own before my husband got to to them, but no such luck. They are cleverly tucked away inside the actual egg. I thought they had stopped doing this, but am glad it's back as it makes cracking an Easter egg open so much more exciting.
After cracking the open though, I found they were in a packet, which I suppose is good to stop them spilling all over the floor, but that used to be the fun part. However the bag was just plain white plastic, it didn't have the aero writing or pictures on it, which I found a bit strange.
The egg and the bubbles were very pleasant, the egg tasted of the usual nestle standard (not as good as cadburys but still good), and the bubbles were very light and melted in the mouth much like a piece of aero bar.
The packaging of this egg was also a lot better than previous years as they have got rid of all that annoying plastic which used to hold the egg in place inside the box, so the box is now completely recyclable, which has got to be a bonus.
A good Easter Egg with the smaller chocolates inside the egg. A great way to kick off Easter early.
(Just to clarify, I am reviewing the milk chocolate version of this egg, not the mint or whatever one which is pictured.)
Herro. I recieved one of these the other day and I sort of couldn't resist and I opened it and ended up eating it all. Alas. So much for control. I was actually surprised at how small it was, though. It was really about as tall as my hand. It comes with two aero bars of a reasonable size.
The aero bars tasted very good. I'm not sure if these are typical Aero bars as I don't usually eat chocolate bars, but they were essentially an aero bar divided into five or six bite size pieces. Very pleasant to eat because obviously the bubbles made it very light. The easter egg itself is wrapped in gold foil and tastes quite different on the whole - I guess it's just conventional chocolate in this case. The egg actually managed to break while inside the box, but I guess it had been bouncing around in my bag for a day or two so...this might explain it.
The egg tastes like normal chocolate. Just ordinary milk chocolate that you can buy in any range from the supermarket. It was very nice, though, beause somehow when it is in the shape of an egg chocolate seems to taste better. I think this applies to advent calendars as well. It just seems to taste better that way.
The shell is thin around the half division and thicker once it steeps down. I quite preferred the thinner chocolate and it' s quite a shame because if you had used thin chocolate all the way around then you would have ended up with a bigger egg. However, I guess this really would have broken easily and it probably wouldn't be so satisfying as the large chocolatey chunks are when you break them off. I'm not sure really how I can describe the taste to you, as it really does taste the same as any other milk chocolate I have eaten, any other easter egg I have eaten, too. I really do think they're all the same when it comes down to it.
I have found out that this costs £1 at Asda which is a very reasonable price, I think, though frankly I would just buy a couple of bars of chocolates and make my own if I could be bothered.
This is very unhealthy though and I don't recommend eating it all at once like I did as this made me feel very ill afterwards and it's really not a good idea anyway. Per 1/4 shell, there are 177 calories and a stagering 9.6 g of fat, 5.0g of which is saturated. So, essentially, I ate 20g of saturated fat in one day and that is not even considering the one aero bar I ate later. Hm. That's pretty awful, I think you'll agree.
However, I suppose Easter is one day in the year so you might as well pig out if you want to. This as good an easter egg as any and I recommend it.
