Nestle Aero Bubbles Easter Egg
Advantages: cheapish, aero bars are lovely
Disadvantages: small, fatty
(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.
Summary: Good if you're looking for one.
