      Tasty mint chocolate

      Aero Bubbles are one of my favourite types of chocolate and to my dismay shops seem to stock them far less often than they used to, or only in the share/multipack variety. They are a round version of the typical Aero chocolate, which is a mixture of milk chocolate and mint typically found in a bar shape.

      When I first tried Aero bubbles half of the bubble would be a pale green and the other brown, and this would be the same inside once taking a bite, but more recently I realised the inside is now entirely brown. I'm not actually sure how much this affects the taste as I don't recollect there being a mint and chocolate taste distinctively. Recently I have noticed in the chocolate and sweets aisle a new variety of this flavour in orange. I haven't yet tried it and I'm not quite sure if I like it as I am quite hit-or-miss with chocolate and orange (except in Terry's Chocolate Oranges which I love) but I thought it worthy of note. The taste is very morish, as is the format which I can easily find myself eating one after another due to the shape and size of the 'bubbles'.

      In the small and larger variety I think a good thing about this quality is the amount of 'bubble' pieces you get to a bag. Its actually quite a lot, particularly compared to the shrinking size of chocolates these days and the great lengths distributors appear to go to to sell you less for the same price. The price of a small bag of Aero Bubbles is usually 60-80p although like I said I haven't been able to buy it in this size for a while due to the lack of stocking in this size, so I'm unsure if it still within this range, but based on similar items I imagine it is. I have to buy the share pack (although I'm hardly complaining because I really enjoy the chocolate anyway, but I digress) which is typically £1.50 in most supermarkets when I have noticed.

      I would definitely recommended these chocolates as they are a tasty treat with a relatively unique taste. The size of each bubble is great to eat and like I said almost invites you to keep eating. The size of the small and large pack is great for a quick treat for yourself or to share with others, although at present I'm unable to even find the smaller pack, which I hope doesn't mean they are no longer stocking it temporarily. The price isn't cheap but its what I've come to expect from chocolates now and so is what I have to be willing to pay.

        Not very impressed

        My husband went to fetch some milk and bacon from Tesco yesterday afternoon and came back with a little treat for us - a pack of Aero bubbles. He said he purchased them because they were on offer. It usually costs £1.59 in Tesco for this 113g bag of peppermint bubbles, but they are currently on offer at £1. I would imagine they are available to purchase at other supermarkets and shops.

        Aero bubbles are made by Nestle, and the peppermint variety come in a green bag. There is also an orange flavour listed on the Tesco website, although you appear to get less of these for your money according to Tesco for some unknown reason, as they are also currently on offer at Tesco for £1 for a bag containing 113g, whereas the peppermint variety are listed as coming in a 135g bag. My bag is 113g so I don't know if perhaps Tesco have made a mistake here. Who knows the answer to this mystery, but as it is the peppermint variety that my husband purchased, it is solely this type that I will be reviewing today.

        My bag informs me that it contains approximately 4 servings, although I think this might be slightly optimistic, especially if you have a sweet tooth! My husband and I were munching on these after dinner last night and I'm pretty sure we managed to get through more than half of the bag. There is an emphasis on the word 'share' with these bubbles, as the top of the pouch says 'Love to share', we are told to 'tear to share' and the back of the pack also contains the words 'party', 'enjoy', and, yes you've guessed it, 'share'. I think they want you to share this bag! We are also advised on the back of the pouch that we should enjoy chocolate as part of a varied and balanced diet, and so they helpfully offer the suggestion that perhaps we should 'share the fun with family and friends'. If I liked these bubbles more, I would be tempted to buy another pack to eat all by myself just for the hell of it. I'm a rebel, I know.

        In terms of additives, these Aero bubbles claim to be free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. A serving (deemed as being 9 bubbles) contains 145 calories, 16.7g of sugar (good job I cleaned my teeth last night then), 8g of fat, 4.9g of saturates and 0.10g of salt. I don't normally list ingredients in my reviews, but as it's a food product, I think people may like to know what these bubbles contain: Sugar,Milk Chocolate (Sugar, Dried Whole Milk, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Vegetable Fat, Lactose and Proteins from Whey, Whey Powder, Emulsifier (Sunflower Lecithin), Butterfat, Flavouring) ,Vegetable Fat ,Whey Powder ,Dried Skimmed Milk ,Butterfat ,Emulsifier (Sunflower Lecithin) ,Glazing Agent (Gum Arabic) ,Colours (Copper Complexes of Chlorophyllins, Curcumin) ,Glucose Syrup ,Flavouring ,Milk Chocolate contains Milk Solids 14% minimum and Vegetable Fat in addition to Cocoa Butter.

        We are advised to store this product in a cool and dry place. The best before date is provided on the white base of the pouch, and mine is March 2014, which means they have plenty of time in which to be eaten. Although with my husband around, I will be surprised if there are any left by tomorrow. The base of the pouch is large enough that the packet stays upright very easily. The pack is easily torn open at the top, and there is a sticker located on the back of the pouch when can be removed and used to stick the opened top of the packet down, so that the bubbles stay reasonably fresh. The sticker is very sticky and so sticks well to the pouch, although I can imagine that if it is lifted up and stuck back down many times, it will start to be much less effective. But I guess if Nestle want all your friends to eat your bubbles, then the top won't need to be stuck down will it?

        There is a strong smell of mint when the packet is opened, which smells rather enticing I think. The bubbles are half green and half brown spheres, and so I naturally assumed that inside the bubbles would be half milk chocolate and half peppermint. How wrong was I. I tried my first bubble and thought it was very minty, and I couldn't taste the milk chocolate. I thought maybe I was imagining it and so tried another one, trying hard to find the taste of the milk chocolate, but again it didn't appear to be there. If I had looked properly at the packaging, I would of seen the description which states that each bubble is 'an aerated peppermint flavoured centre with a half milk chocolate, half peppermint flavoured shell'. And so basically these bubbles are peppermint spheres with a sliver of milk chocolate covering one half of each bubble. This is also demonstrated on the picture of one of the bubbles on the front of the packet, which I obviously hadn't bothered to notice either before I tucked in.

        I have to say, I'm quite disappointed by the taste of these bubbles. I love minty products, but there is a distinct lack of chocolate and I really don't understand why they aren't half chocolate and half peppermint all the way through. What is the point in having such a tiny amount of chocolate coating one half of each sphere? Because of the lack of milk chocolate, I personally found that these bubbles didn't melt in my mouth, which is something I was expecting them to do. In fact, I found that eating them with a bit of a dry mouth was a bad idea, as one left me choking as it got slightly stuck in my throat. The shell seems to melt in the mouth, but the centre just stays in one clump that needs chewing, and I thought the two textures of smooth melt in the mouth shell and the bubbly centre that needed chewing just seemed to be a little bit of an odd combination. I wasn't overly impressed. I do have to say here that my husband enjoyed eating them, and so other people might find them to be a lot more enjoyable than I did. Personally, I just found that they didn't work particularly well and there was a distinct lack of chocolate mixed with too much peppermint, meaning that they just had a very strong minty taste.

        In conclusion, I will probably assist my husband in finishing the bubbles off tonight, purely because the bag will be perched in front of my face. However, I personally wouldn't buy this product and there are many other sweets and chocolate products I would rather consume. I am giving them 3 stars because I didn't particularly enjoy them, but I still ended up eating half of the packet, and my husband really liked them.

          Bubbly Fun!!!

          Now I'm a self confessed Chocoholic so when I got invited to try out the Aero Bubbles. I could not wait to have them.

          The packaging is a glossy foil bag which is easy to tear open and makes it even more fun opening the bag. The theme of the packaging is minty green with lots of bubbles, the trademark bubbly chocolate writing and a very tempting photo of creamy looking chocolate balls.

          The Bubbles are small milk chocolate balls and as soon as you open the pack you can smell the minty smell that Aero has. They're a little bit bigger than Maltesers so are the perfect size for a treat. The balls are half milk chocolate colour and the other half the mint green colour. They are full of bubbly milk/minty chocolate which makes them really light.

          This also makes them a different to other types of chocolate on the market at this time. I really LOVE the taste and the texture of the chocolate. I also love the feel the bubbles 'pop' in my mouth. Aero Bubbles are the greatest and I think everyone will love them to when they get there mits on them :-)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Nice product to snack on but there is not enough milk chocolate for my taste

          ***Why I want the product***
          Being a person with a very sweet tooth this question is easy, because I love chocolate and everything sweet, but the other reason is because I am a BzzAgent I got this beauty for free to test and give my opinion on.

          ***About the product***
          When I think of Aero I automatically think of their bars of peppermint and orange bars of chocolate, which never lasts long by the way. I do not think of Aero products as being in bite sized or share bags.

          Aero Bubbles have a distinctively light and bubbly texture but with half and half shell of peppermint and milk chocolate.

          Aero show their new advertisement for this product as people going along their daily business but bouncing around on green balls, while sharing a light snack Aero with friends, who also starts to bounce around until they've finished their confectionary and throwing the wrapper in the bin. The green bouncy ball also disappears. Aero's slogan is "Aero, making the world a bubblier place".

          ***Packaging***
          I have the peppermint one that comes in 36g bag. The packaging is what you would expect of Aero, bright with the refreshing green minty colour that stays true to Aero without straying too far away from their logos and consumers dismissing them for something else.

          The front sees Aero Bubbles in chocolate written to the left and the little balls of goodness themselves on the right, which also sees the half/half of peppermint and milk chocolate. The front of the packaging also tells you that you are consuming 195 calories per bag, which is 10% of your recommended diet.
          The back tells you about the ingredients (below) and a little bit about the product.

          ***Ingredients***
          Milk Chocolate (Sugar, Dried Whole Milk, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Vegetable Fat, Lactose and Proteins from Whey, Whey Powder, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin), Butterfat, Flavouring),Sugar ,Vegetable Fat ,Whey Powder ,Dried Skimmed Milk ,Butterfat ,Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin) ,Glazing Agent (Gum Arabic) ,Polydextrose ,Glucose Syrup ,Flavouring ,Colours (Copper Complexes of Chlorophyllins, Curcumin) ,Milk Chocolate contains Milk Solids 14% minimum and Vegetable Fat in addition to Cocoa Butter

          ***The smell and taste***
          Opening the packaging the peppermint smell hits you first, which to me I feel is a little overwhelming as I do not remember the bars being this strong. But the distinctive smell can only be from Aero. Taking out one ball, they are a little bigger than a Malteaser I would say it feels slightly heavier yet still being on the light side as you would expect.

          Biting into half the shell I am surprised to see inside is all peppermint flavouring and not half/half like I expected it to be. This explains why the peppermint flavour is so strong.
          The product is very creamy, light with the bubbly middle but the peppermint flavouring is I would say slightly stronger than the bars. It is actually not as overpowering as I first thought but I would have liked to see half peppermint and half milk chocolate though.

          Diving in the bag while watching TV with a lovely cup of tea I am not surprised to see how quick these little balls of fun go down, before I know it there is one (none) left. In total you get 13 balls in each 36g bag.

          ***Price and availability***
          Available in refreshing Peppermint, with half green and half milk coloured shell, in Snack (36g) around £1.00 and Sharing (113g) Bags (around £1.89. Sharing Bags are also available in zesty Orange flavour.

          Aero Bubbles are available at most supermarkets and small shops that sell confectionery.

          ***What I think about it/do I like it?***
          I like that each ball is bursting with flavour, I am surprised at how light they are and great for a snack before meals and you know you will not be spoiling your dinner because of being naughty. But I am actually disappointed that the balls are not half and half inside like I expected. I think this would have been a great twist for Aero and something they missed out on.

          ***Would I purchase again?***
          No, the above would not stop me from purchasing them in the future, and something I would feel happy to giving to my daughter before her main meals without spoiling her dinner.

            Mint to chocolate ratio not quite right!

            As a Bzz Agent, I am regularly sent products to try in return for sharing my opinion on them. I was very pleased to be selected for their recent campaign for Aero, and it was a happy day when I received six packs of Aero Peppermint Bubbles in the post to try out!

            The packaging for these is very similar to the packaging for the likes of Maltesers or M&Ms. Basically, they come loosely packaged in a little pouch which just rips open. This makes them ideal for sharing, although you could easily get through a packet by yourself. The chocolates themselves look different to what I was expecting, as I thought they would be minty on the inside and chocolate on the outside. However, these were minty on the inside, and also half covered in green mint chocolate on the outside. This made them very much fall into the 'mint' category, rather than getting a chocolate fix.

            The size of the chocolates is similar to Maltesers, and they just fit in the mouth perfectly. I'm impatient when it comes to food, so I tend to chew these rather than sucking them, although I'm sure everyone is different in this respect. I really love the texture of Aero chocolate, and these are no exception being light and fluffy, and just melting in the mouth. The only downside for me was that I felt the mint element overpowered the chocolate, so I didn't really feel I was getting the chocolate hit I hoped for. For this reason, I think I would prefer a traditional Aero bar, because at least with those the bar is covered in chocolate, whereas with the bubbles it is mainly mint with a tiny bit of chocolate which is barely noticeable. They do leave a nice taste in your mouth though, and are a bit of a refreshing blast to your sinuses!

            I wouldn't go out of my way to buy these, I have to admit. Although I like Aero chocolate, these were a bit disappointing for the reasons mentioned above. They are very light, which could be a good or bad thing because I think it would be easy to find yourself eating far more than you should without feeling guilty! They are available in standard sized or sharing bags, and the standard sized bags cost around 60-70p in supermarkets and such like. They are also available in an orange flavour, but I have not yet tried these.

            The perfect treat.

            I am a member of BzzAgent, which is a website that matches you up with certain products and sends you them in the post to try out at home. The latest (and my most favourite!) product which I have been trying out is Nestle Aero Bubbles.

            Nestle Aero Bubbles come in 2 different flavours - mint and orange. I haven't tried the orange version, so will be basing this review on the mint version. They come in large 135g bags or smaller standard sized bags. I have been trying out the standard sized bags, which is just as well (where my waistline is concerned) because I find them extremely addictive indeed! The green packaging is bright and attractive. They certainly stand out on shop shelves and you can tell right away that they're an Aero product. The bags are made of foil, which ensures that the chocolate inside stays fresh.

            The bubbles are round and look like balls. They are about the same size as Malteasers (so just about the perfect size to pop in your mouth!) and are completely smooth. They are half green coloured (mint) and half brown coloured (chocolate). They're quite fun and different looking. As soon as you open the bag you are hit with the minty smell.

            When you bite in to the chocolate you'll notice that there's not actually any milk chocolate inside, it's all mint, aside from the milk chocolate on the outside. These little bubbles aren't chocolate with a hint of mint, they are mint with a hint of chocolate! If you like mint/chocolate infusions, you are guaranteed to love Aero Bubbles. They have a wonderful texture too (just like regular Aero chocolate). They are light and bubbly inside. They are silky smooth to bite through and melt in your mouth within seconds. I am quite fond of trying to melt them in my mouth without chewing them! I find that the bubbly texture makes these little treats feel quite light, whereas a lot of chocolatey treats are quite heavy and make me feel quite quilty during and afterwards! No guilt here! As much as I like bars of chocolate, I do think that packs of individual chocolates make a better treat. I tend to scoff chocolate bars down, maybe because I know it will melt in my hand or maybe because it's just there! I find that individual chocolates allow me to take my time, savor and enjoy my treats more. I love Aero Bubbles with a cup of tea, plus they're easy to eat out and about. There's a generous amount of Bubbles per pack (which is pretty rare these days) and I find that I'm usually full by the end of the bag (the become quite sickly towards the end). I'd say the only downside is that they're not great for your health (195 calories per standard sized pack) and as I've already mentioned, they're really addictive - I find it impossible to just eat one or two! The top three ingredients consist of sugar, milk chocolate and vegetable fat. As long as you're sensible and eat Aero Bubbles as a treat and not every day, then I'm sure you'll be fine!

            Overall I love the taste and texture of Aero Bubbles. I am very likely to purchase them and am happy to recommend them to others. Aero Bubbles are available at all good supermarkets etc. Small bags cost around the 60p mark and larger (share size) bags cost around the £1.50 mark.

              Yummy chocolate

              I will be the first to admit that I have a very sweet tooth. I love all things sweet and chocolaty, in moderation. That is why when I was out and about in Tesco and spotted this pouch of aero mint bubbles on offer for £1 I thought I would treat myself.


              The first thing I noticed about these chocolates when I opened the pouch was the delicious and inviting smell. They smell creamy and minty. The peppermint screams "Eat me now!".


              The aero bubbles themselves are of a similar size to malteasers in that they are the perfect size to be able to fit one nicely in your mouth. They also feel light like malteasers. This is due to the aerated peppermint centre.


              For the purpose of this review I am holding back and taking one single bite out of one bubble in order to describe the centre. The bubbles are made out of a soft chocolate which your teeth can just sink into. This reveals the bubbly green centre which has a very moreish peppermint taste. The mint is not too overpowering and blends well with the creamy milk chocolate.


              I have only one issue with these chocolates in that they are just so light! This might not seem like a problem for some people but when I have chocolate it is usually to fill a hole and I can easily eat a whole pouch of these during a film since they are so light and moreish. When you consider there are 538 calories per 100g and 113g in a pouch this is really not good for me!


              You can buy these in pouches or in single packets from various outlets including online.


              I think that as a treat these are really nice and delicious but since I am a greedy chocoholic I will not be buying these again if I am eating them alone!

              An average minty chocolate treat.

              I've always loved my chocolate and christmas time is when I am at my most indulgent. I think I have 'eyes are bigger than my belly syndrome' so ended up buying two boxes of chocolate, plus 2kg of bars and recieving gifts of sweetie tins. Heaven you may think?! No! I am on a fixed diet for training purposes so have only just managed to get to the bottom of my Nestle Aero mint Bubbles box.

              Aero is a type of chocolate made my Nestle filled with tiny air bubbles and available on sale across the UK and selected countries around the world. The process of creating the Aero was patented in 1935 by Rowntree in the year of its launch and the mint variety was introduced in the 1970s; as Rowntree began losing money in the 1980s they were bought by the Swiss company Nestle. There have been and still are several varieties of Aero on sale which include original, caramel, dark chocolate, white chocolate, latte, crispy and orange. Bubbles have only been introduced to the UK and Canadian markets in three flavours - mint, original and orange whith orange being for a limited period. Nestle now only use natural ingredients in their mint based products.

              I bought the christmas box of bubbles which was £3.00 for 300g and this contains an average of 92 individual sweets; the packs also come in 36g sweets for around 50p (11 sweets); or a sharing bag of 135g for about £1.69 (41 sweets).

              The box is slightly textured on the outer surface and has the light greeen colouring around the edges and sides fading into white where the logo sits on every side of the box. The logo is brown with the bubbles depicted on the word 'Aero' and green bubbles coming from the 'o' and the red Nestle above the logo. The box has snowflakes all over, the image of a green ribbon along the boarder (as if it could be a gift) and different bubbles images (baubles and sweets) all over the box. The back of the box contains ingredients information, company information and nutritional information.

              Nutritional information (per 100g):
              Energy 538kcal
              Carbs 60.5g
              Fat 30.1g

              When I opened the box I was greeted with a rather plain white bag which was a little bit disappointing; I opened the bag and in there were a mass of little brown balls. The balls are approx 1.7cm across and are depicted to scale on the box and bags. The balls used to have a green centre which I remember from being a child but due to new health awareness Aero removed this in 2011 and the balls are just flavoured chocolate. I find that the change of chocolate has made the bubbles rather dry when eaten; the after feel is a 'furriness' on my tongue and I find I need to drink a lot of water or tea to remove it.

              As a chocolate to eat with a hot drink then they are okay as they melt well and feel cold against the warm liquid which is nice. I would not recommend them if you want to eat a lot of chocolate due to the dry feel in the mouth; I much prefer Dairy Milk!

              A light refreshing sweet.

              ===The Purchase===

              Recently at the shops I was deciding on the chocolate of choice to pop in my basket and noticed there was a product I had not sampled before. That being Nestle's Aero Mint Bubbles. Being a fan of all things minty and admitting to enjoying the normal aero bars, I decided to give them a whirl.

              The packet was a decent size of 113grams ~ a bag nicely decorated with a bubbly chocolate aero sign and a helpful depiction of the actually sweet - a round ball much like the mighty malteser with a round chocolate ball shaped bubbly filled centre.

              ===The Taste Test===

              I store most of my chocolate in the fridge and these were no different, out the came all cool and smooth as you popped them in your mouth and then when I bit into them, the lightness of the chocolate inside was just delicious. It was of course, minty without being too overpowering, more of a light refreshing mint that went well with the smooth milk chocolate casing.

              I crunched into the ball and felt the familiar light texture of an aero bar but with the refreshing back note of peppermint. Light not too heavy, quite dissimilar to an after dinner mint which are normally so much heavier in taste and stronger. These are very light and lightly refreshing as opposed to a sharp mint flavour. They melted easily I my mouth and the bag went down a treat in one sitting!

              The bag itself is just the right for a nice treat, or even with a cold drink and in this case something I am currently doing as I write this review (all in the name of research!). I feel there more than enough sweets in this bag to satisfy any sweet tooth. Anymore and I think it would be too much of a minty overload.

              This 113gram pack is £1.59 currently in Asda, or two packs for £2. Each bag contains 145 calories.

              ===Overall conclusion===

              All in all a nice very light minty tasting chocolate treat that is not, too calorific but satisfies those with a sweet tooth.

              I would give it 4 ****.

                Nice chocolatey treat that stands out

                Nestle Aero Bubbles is, in my opinion, one of the interesting invention in the chocolate industry. I love chocolate but I'm very picky with the chocolates I eat. When it first come out, Aero bubbles is the one I quickly snatched up as it piqued my interest.

                The package has a very attractive design with green bubbles (or coloured bubbles depending on the flavour) with an actual product image shown in the corner. I'm thinking they named this product Aero bubbles as to project an image of smooth and light chocolate.

                It comes in a variety of sizes including small snack bags, aero bars and a big resealable bag for sharing. Depending on where you buy it form, prices can vary a lot. A small snack-sized bag would cost around £0.70, a bag of 5 aero bars would usually cost £1.00 and larger bags for sharing would normally cost £1.50. Personally, I tend to buy the larger bags for sharing as I wouldn't be able to finish even the small-sized packets and they tend to be cheaper as well. Last time I bought it from Tesco, I got it for £1.00 as they're on offer.

                Taste-wise, it has fresh minty taste that greatly complements the chocolatey exterior. However, when I first tasted it I was slight disappointed as less airy feeling. Maybe I had high expectations from the package design that I was hoping that the inside of aero balls would be soft and fluffy. Nevertheless, the taste is very enjoyable and a great treat during lunch times. However, I must admit I usually consume about 4-5 balls per servings since it would be too sweet if I eat any more than that.

                Nutritional values are the drawback, as with any other chocolate products. It provides 546 kcals per 100g; my estimation is the calorie content would be around 100 kcal per serving of 4/5 aero balls. The sugar content is 57.0 grams per 100 grams of product, which is pretty much the same as any other chocolate bars. Therefore, I believe moderate consumption is the key to healthy eating.

                Overall, this product is enjoyable and not to mention the price is very reasonable. If you're bored of eating plain chocolate bars, why not give this a go.

                Thank you for reading. :) x

                A good treat every now and again

                I am a huge fan of the Aero Mint chocolate bars, so when I saw these little balls of chocolaty goodness I knew I had to give them a try.

                They are packaged appealingly in an eye catching mint green and white colour scheme, with the familiar Aero style writing and pictures of the sweets with some cut in half to show you the inside of the chocolates. The packaging also invites you to "feel the bubbles", I'm assuming the mean as they melt on your tongue which they do in a delicious way when you eat them.

                The actual chocolates are around your average size for a sweet of this nature and are a perfect mouth sized morsel.

                They are made by Nestle and the actual chocolate is nice, nothing amazing just nice. The inside is the lovely bubbly mint filling you get in the bars and is by far my favourite part. It's a creamy and quite refreshing minty taste and the bubbles almost fizz away on your tongue. I do recommend sucking them slowly to get this effect rather than just chomping on them.

                I paid around 56p for my small 35g bag. A 35g bag has 195 calories and 11g of fat in them so a once in a while treat. The packaging also highlights that they contain no artificially colours, flavours of preservatives.

                A 4 star bubbly treat!

                They are yummy!

                Aero is a popular chocolate company. Fairly recently they have brought out another product to expand their range. With many good competitors in the market, such as Cadburys, Galaxy, and Mars, they have a tough job. I have to admit, I usually only go for Cadburys chocolate, just because of the wide range of products they sell, and their high quality. But, when I found these in the fridge I didn't hasten to eat them.

                These Aero Bubbles can be purchased as a 135g 'sharing bag' or an individual 35g pack, which can also be bought as a multipack with 4 bags in. The smaller bags contain 10-11 balls in them. The smaller bags retail at around 50 pence, whereas the 135g bag sells at around £1.90. Prices can vary though.

                This product can be bought as just chocolate, or in the mint flavour.

                The bags have the 'Aero' logo on, and a themed in the colour brown (and green for the mint flavour). The larger 'sharing' bag is re-sealable. Both bags are recyclable.

                The Aero Bubbles are small chocolate balls, slightly larger than a Malteser. The outer layer is chocolate, and when you bite into them, the centre is chocolate (or mint) bubbles. The chocolate is soft and creamy. It will literally melt in your mouth. These Aero Bubbles have an identical texture and taste to the original Aero Bars.

                Nutritional information (per 100g):
                Energy - 2283 kj/546 kcal
                Protein - 6.4g
                Carbohydrate - 57.0g of which sugars 56.5g
                Fat - 31.0g of which saturates 19.3g
                Fibre - 0.8g
                Sodium - 0.1g
                Salt Equivalent 0.2g

                They contain no artificial colours flavours and preservatives.

                I can easily eat a small bag of these...very quickly. The bigger bags are made for 'sharing' but if you're hungry, they will disappear pretty quickly! I would highly recommend as a treat, but they're not the healthiest product. A well deserved 5 stars from me.

                  yummy chocolate bubbles!

                  I do really love chocolate but will admit that I usually opt for Cadbury's or Galaxy as my first choice but every now and again I am tempted by Nestle and Aero is one of my favourite chocolate bars produced by them as I Love the creaminess of the chocolate and the texture of the bubbles. So when in Nestle introduced the aero bubbles I became an instant fan of these little milk chocolate shaped balls with their bubbly interior.

                  ~~~~~Packaging~~~~~
                  The aero bubbles I am reviewing are the ones that come in individual packs but you can also buy them in a resealable larger grab bag. The smaller packets are made of a thin plastic with tearable edges. On the front of the packet you will find the Aero and nestle logos surrounded by chocolate bubbles. There is basic nutritional information on the front of the pack but you can find more details on the back as well as ingredients listings, best before date and company contact details. The only detail missing from the pack is the weight, I guess with them being quite light that they do not want you to know the weight. The packing is also suitable for recycling.

                  ~~~~~Nutritional Information~~~~~
                  As with any chocolate product it is not going to be that good for you, but here are the basic nutritional values per one individual bag:
                  Calories - 192kcal
                  Protein - 2.3g
                  Carbohydrate - 20.6g
                  Fat - 11.1g


                  ~~~~~The Product~~~~~
                  The Aero bubbles are little milk chocolate balls with a smooth coating and a bubbly centre. They can also be purchased in mint flavour the same as the Aero bars.

                  ~~~~~Taste/My Opinion~~~~~
                  I do love these Aero bubbles they are very moorish and I can easily polish off one of the individual sized packs quite quickly, I tend to avoid buying the larger bags just for the fact that they would probably disappear in the same way. The chocolate is very creamy and the bubbles melt quite quickly in your mouth. If you like the Aero bars but have not tried the bubbles yet then I can highly recommend them for a treat.

                    A tasty minty treat!

                    The first aero bar was available in the UK way back in 1936, at this time they were produced by Rowntree. As time went on Rowntree became Rowntree mackintosh and then in 1988 was taken over by Nestle and it is Nestle who still own and produce the brand today.

                    As a follow up to the original aero bar the aero chunky was introduced in 1982 and then in 2005 the newest addition to the aero family came in the form of aero bubbles. Over the years nestle have introduced several different flavours of aero including the traditional milk chocolate, mint, orange and cappuccino.

                    Aero bubbles come in two flavours, milk chocolate and peppermint and it is the peppermint bubbles I have focused my review.

                    The bubbles are round chocolate balls approximately 1.8cm high. When first introduced the sweets had a green peppermint centre, with the same bubbly texture as the traditional aero bar. This green centre was then covered with a milk chocolate coating. Nowadays though the green centre is no more, it has instead been replaced by a peppermint flavoured milk chocolate, the texture and chocolate coating and more importantly the taste however have remained unchanged.

                    Aero bubbles are available to buy as an individual 36g pack which contains on average 11 chocolates or as a larger 135g sharing bag. The price varies from store to store but a small pack retails for around £0.50 a bag and the sharing bag around £1.70. (although these can often be picked up cheaper during store promotions - Asda are currently selling for £1.00).

                    The nutritional information on pack is as follows:
                    (per 100g)
                    Energy - 2283 kj/546 kcal
                    Protein - 6.4g
                    Carbohydrate - 57.0g of which sugars 56.5g
                    Fat - 31.0g of which saturates 19.3g
                    Fibre - 0.8g
                    Sodium - 0.1g
                    Salt Equivalent 0.2g

                    I am normally more of a 'cadbury' girl when it comes to chocolate but I must say I really am quite partial to these little minty treats... They have a quite strong peppermint taste but it works really well with the smooth chocolate coating. In my opionion it is best to suck rather than chew when it comes to these sweets, by chomping you miss out out the gorgeous bubbly texture, it can be much better appreciated by letting them melt on your tongue.

                    If you are partial to minty sweets/chocolate I would definitely recommend giving these a go - I would advise going for the sharing pack rather than the individual size as I feel this pack is just a bit to small to satisfy the old chocolate cravings...

                      I do like these aero chocolates. Not my favourite though but I can't resist snacking on these occasionally. I find they are a more fun way to eat chocolate.

                      The aero bubbles come in a mint green packet with bubbles on it. I like the colour and it shows a picture of the chocolate which really does look could enough to eat!

                      The chocolate is in a small ball shape about the size of a malteser and has a chocolate bubbly centre. The outside tastes more like milk chocolate however the middle is very minty and strong.

                      Nescafe claim you can feel the bubbles. I really do think you can as when they are on my tongue I can feel stuff popping and fizzing.

                      As I said these chocolates are not my favourite choclote as they give me really bad headaches. I think the mint just gets to my head. Otherwise they are really nice.

                      A normal bag of these cost about 50p and you get about 15 aero bubbles in the bag. They only have 193 calories. This is quite good because other less minty chocolate has about 250 calories in it such as dairy milk.

                      Overall a lovely chocolate if you like mint if you don't like mint I wouldn't recommend it

                    Almost too good to share. A completely new way to enjoy and share one of the nation's favourites... AERO. Launched in the spring of 2005, Aero Bubbles are bite size bubbles of Aero chocolate in both impulse and share size packs.
