Aero have only recently, compared to other brands, branched out into the Hot Chocolate market but has been available now in drink form for a few years. As well as Original Aero, their drinking chocolate now also comes in this refreshing Mint flavour and let me tell you, the taste of this is simply scrummy, delicious and divine! This Hot Chocolate is made just like any other by adding two heaped teaspoonfuls of chocolate mix into a cup or mug and then adding hot water. You can add hot milk to this if you like but I prefer water because it gives it a much better and smoother taste! The packaging recommends you actually use FOUR heaped teaspoons but if I do this, I feel this all becomes a bit too sweet. From the first mouthful, your senses are overwhelmed by a hot, sweet chocolatey taste and it is only seconds later that you get a sudden blast of mint! But be warned, if you don't like mint or more spefically Mint Aero then this definitely isn't for you! This drink perfectly captures the flavour of an Aero but without the bubbles! This would be almost impossible to eplicate in drink form at any rate. My wife doesn't like this because she says it tastes just like a melted Aero but for me, I believe this is one of the better confectionary-branded hot chocolastes available on the market! The drink can be bought in individual sachets or in a 288g sized jar and the price alters respectively. For me this drink is simply scrummy and I cannot recommend it highly enough!
I bought a pack of this hot chocolate from my local discount store for £1. The pack consists of eight sachets and each drink contains just 99 calories. The drink is lovely and smooth. It has a real chocolate taste to it that tastes genuine and not synthetic. It does taste quite sweet but it's not too sweet, it's somewhere in the middle. You can add a spoonful of sugar to the drink if you wish. I sometimes add a splash of milk to it aswell, this makes the drink even more creamy and frothy. The drink is nice on it's own though. It has a lovely Aero taste that tastes minty and invigorating - just like the Aero chocolate. Aero fans will love this as it tastes just like the chocolate bar, yum! I find that the drink warms me up on cold evenings. If you add boiling water to the drink (straight from the kettle) you can see the Aero bubbles forming and they float around on top of the drink. They melt in the mouth and they have a gorgeous texture to them. The drink also leaves a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth after drinking. It's quite a sweet aftertaste that's pleasant and not too strong. It doesn't make you want to brush your teeth straight after. The drink isn't too high in calories and it's low in fat too, so it would make an ideal drink for weight watchers. It's not too high in sugar either so it wouldn't be bad for your teeth if drunk on a regular basis. As the drink comes in sachets you can slip one into your bag and enjoy one on your break at work. Yummy!
In the past, I have tried the regular chocolate version of this, as we do love having a nice array of hot chocolate drinks available, especially now that the weather is turning colder as autumn sets in and winter is just around the corner. I'm a big fan of Mint Aero chocolate, and so I thought I'd try the hot choc drink of it. What I liked about the regular choc drink of this was how you'd get a rich, frothy cup of hot choc that had substance to it. Many hot choc drinks don't manage to keep that substance throughout the drink, whereas the Aero drink did. Cost wise, this proved a little higher than usual, and the same is the case with the Mint Aero, too. It's over £1 for four sachets, if that's how you want to buy it, or around the £6 mark for a tub that should give you approximately 12 servings. It's not cheap, but as with the regular choc version, my take on it is that you're paying for the name as well as the quality. Once you make the drink, it mirrors the front of the container, giving you a really frothy top that seems to remain for the majority of the time you've got the drink in the mug. The powder has a faint minty aroma once you open the tub or sachet, and adding the hot water and stirring really brings out the minty smell. It stays strong throughout, never really leaving even once the drink has gone, which shows that there's a decent amount of the mint choc that has been used here, and that it is of a quality you'd expect from Aero anyway. The initial taste is very moreish, and brings a smile to my face, and for a while you think this is perfect. However, the richness of the taste, while it has a good balance in the regular choco flavour, is a bit too much for this mint version, and it gets rather sickly about halfway down the mug. Gloopiness is usually something that is praiseworthy, especially where chocolate is concerned, with me. Here, though, it could almost do with dumbing down a bit and less richness coming into it. What I found quite useful to do, which works better with the tub than with the sachets, is to put less in. The substance does go a little bit, as you're making it weaker, but the richness doesn't overload the tastebuds when you do this. You don't get the complete flavour throughout, but at least having a whole mug isn't too overwhelmingly rich in this instant. I do recommend this, but just beware of the pitfalls of it being too rich. Perhaps I need to strike a better balance between how much powder I use to see if there is a good balance of substance and richness here. It's quite costly, so I shan't be spending much time experimenting with it. Recommended, but not quite as good as the regular Aero chocolate drink.
I love curling up of an evening with a mug of hot chocolate. The ideal, of course is to make one with hot milk and melted chocolate, but this is rarely feasible so I have been trying out the various instant hot chocolates on the market to try and find an acceptable stand in. I have tried, and enjoyed, the normal Aero hot chocolate drink, so when I saw the choc mint version I had to give it a go (bit of a sucker, or should that be a slurper, for choc mint things). Unlike many instant hot chocolates I find that this drink does not taste of artificial sweetners at all, actually the flavour compares well with hot milk made chocolate. Instant hot choc is almost ridiculously easy to make - spoon the powder into the mug, add hot water, stir like mad - however there are a couple of points to note to ensure a nearly perfect hot drink. First of all it does take the 4 heaped teaspoons of powder to get a rich enough drink. The downside of these heaped teaspoons is that you have to stir well, really well, else you are liable to end up with significant lumps of the powder floating round in your drink and they do not add to the taste or texture of the drink. If you get the making procedure correct you are greeted by a mug with a frothy milky brown appearance (this is a knock on advantage of all the stirring a very frothy top). On sipping I find I have chocolately drink which is definitely reminiscent of aero with a subtle mint scent and flavour. I like this subtleness as it doesn't leave you feeling like you have been drinking chocolate mouthwash. It isn't a particularly thick chocolate drink, but pleasant enough although I wouldn't label it luxurious. This is a refreshing change to normal hot chocolate. Each much of this hot chocolate provides you with 99 cals, 2.4g sat fat and 14.8g of sugars. Aero mint hot choc can be found in 288g tubs (12 servings) in the hot drinks aisle of all supermarkets for just over £2. Much better value than the individual sachets and the tub is substantial enough but not too big to be stuck in a bag to take to work.
Nestlé Aero Mint Chocolate Drink Description: Manufacturer: Nestlé / Hot Chocolate / Mint flavoured chocolate drink I paid just £1 because this drink was on special offer at my local supermarket but you will normally pay around £1.80for a 288g tub. In addition, you can also buy this drink in sachet (8x24g) packs. You can find this hot chocolate in most supermarkets. The packaging for this hot chocolate drink is a mint green colour with the Aero logo and a picture of the drink on the front. To prepare, simply boil a kettle and then mix boiling water with 4 heaped teaspoons of the dried mixture. Then stir, serve and enjoy! I was surprised by how frothy this drink is, it looks like it has been made with frothed milk rather than plain boiled water. It bubbles up immediately and looks very appealing. The taste is extremely creamy and has a great "real chocolate" taste with a very subtle mint flavour. The drink is thick and sweet but not at all sickly and every mouthful is is frothy as the bubbles imply it will be. This drink contains the following (per mug); 99 calories 14.8g of sugar 2.6g of fat (2.4g saturates) So there is a down side, there is heaps of sugar in this drink and more fat than I would like. Having said that, I often find that instant hot chocolate drinks are weak tasting and this one certainly isn't, it tastes like it has been made in a coffee shop rather than at home, with a "posh" taste that chocolate lovers are sure to enjoy. There is something delicious about decent hot chocolate and the mint makes this one a little different from most - if you haven't already tried it then I recommend that you treat yourself soon and give it a shot!
Nestlé Aero Mint Chocolate Drink Description: 8 Sachets, 8x24g/ Manufacturer: Nestlé / Hot Chocolate / Mint flavoured chocolate drink. Now that the dark nights and cold weather are officially here, it is time to reach for cosy, warming hot drinks again. I am a huge fan of hot chocolate, there is something reassuringly comforting about it and so in winter, I do like to have some available at home and in the office for when I fancy it. Last year, I found that Ovaltine was a favourite, but wanted to try something a little different this year, so when Mrs Assasin came home with Aero's mint chocolate drink, I looked for ward to trying it. She paid £1.85 for a 288g tub, but you can also purchase this in 8 sachets (8x24g) packs, which would be handy to take to work. You can find this drink in most supermarkets. All you do to make this drink is boil the kettle, add 4 heaped teaspoons of the dried chocolate mix to a cup, top up with boiling water and stir. You do have to stir it well to make sure that all of the mix dissolves properly. The first thing that you will see is how bubbly this drink is, it actually surprised me by just how bubbly and frothy it is. It is also quite thick looking, as opposed to some hot chocolate drinks which can seem very watery and unappetising. When you taste it, you may also be surprised. You can really taste the chocolate, it doesn't taste at all weak or insipid, in fact, it has quite a luxurious chocolatey taste with a hint of mint, which complements it well and certainly doesn't overpower the chocolate. A serving of the chocolate drink contains the following; 99 calories 14.8g of sugar 2.6g of fat (2.4g of which is saturates) This drink is not particularly good for you, which would be my only criticism, it tastes luxurious because it has plenty of calories and sugar to help it! Having said that, it is really delicious and if you are looking for a hot, chocolatey treat, this could well be the one for you! Unfirtunately, the calorie content means that I will have to keep looking for an everyday one, but this will definitely be on my "treat list" for the future..
NESTLES AERO MINT CHOCOLATE DRINK. Usually i drink Sainsbury,s Hot Chocolate Drink before i go to bed, its just really a thing i have done since i was little, i used to have a cup of hot drink before bed, and my dad would make it for me. Nestles make my favourite bar of chocolate Aero Mint and as i love this, i found a Tub of this but in a bedtime drink, well guess you could also have this as a daytime drink and mix it same way as a milkshake, but as i wanted to replace my usual night time drink thought i would try this and its really good. The container, although ive recently read that you can also buy this in pre made sachets, is green in colour and has all the usual bubbles drawn on it, it looks yummy. The Taste ********** It tells you to put four heaped teaspoons full into previously boiled milk, yuck, that would be to much in my opinion i only pur two in a hot mug of boiled milk, i boil my in a saucepan, but guess you could boil it in the mircrowave if you wanted to save a bit of time. It really tasted creamy and smooth, just how you would like a hot chocolate drink to be, and every mouthful you get a hint of mint, its not so overpowering that you think yuck, its lovely in a way that you could only describe by drinking it, you can see loads of bubbles which i like very much, that adds to the frothy tasting drink that i would definetely recommend to you. It cost £1.67p and i got a large tub full, and guess will last me a long time, i usually have a mug full before bed, but then not every day. As i still got to use up the rest of my Sainsbury,s Hot Chocolate that i usually have. The taste of the chocolate in this drink is real quality just what i would have expected from a Nestle,s product and i will definetely be buying this again. I will make some with a whisk as a milk shake when my grandchildren come over again, and see what it comes up like. Thanks for reading and rating my reviews. XX
A regular dose of Tesco's hot chocolate before bed usually knocks me out for the night, But lately I've been experimenting a bit with well known brands, and After buying a average size pot of Aero Milk Chocolate I was not let down. Aero are Best known for they're chocolate range melting in your mouth, but they do also do hot chocolate's, and for 1.59 it is definitely not cheap. The pot itself consists of green colouring around the outside I'm guessing it signifies the mint, and then you can spot chocolatey bubbles emerging round the edges. Seducing you in. Do not however follow the instructions on the back of the pack as it tell you to pour four Heaped spoons into Warm Water. Doing this will result in unnecessary mixture arising to the top of your mug floating around as a Unidentified flying object. The Correct way is to put in 1 spoon if you prefer it weak or if 'like me' you adore chocolate two spoons at the most! The taste is sensational, just like the chocolate it bubbles on your tongue allowing you to just feel the sensation. The chocolate kicks through at the end hinted with a touch of mint, touches the right spots!. However don't expect it to look like the mug on the picture as it is rarely that! But overall a lovely Refreshing Mug of Cocoa! Thanks for reading
Can you call a hot chocolate soft? Perhaps smooth and creamy would be a better description. Aero hot chocolate is unique in its ability to bubble into the most magical and beautifully frothy hot chocolate. The mint flavour in this hot chocolate is just right, not too strong so that you feel overpowered by it and lose the essence of it being first and foremost a hot chocolate, but just enough so you get a slight kick of mint with each sip. On the other hand the Aero orange hot chocolate is far too strong, so if you have a choice, definately go for the mint version. I find it best to add the hot water slowly to the mug containing spoonfuls of the Aero hot chocolate powder whilst continuously stirring to get the best frothy and heavenly consistency. You don't even really need to use 4 teaspoons as recommended; three will do just fine and will make this treat last longer, as it is a little dear. If you are in an even more luxurious mood then grate some tiny curls of dark chocolate on top, absolutely delicious!
If there's one thing I take real pleasure in it's having a lovely drink of hot chocolate, but so often the instant hot chocolates you can buy in shops are a massive let down. This one on the other hand, is an absolute delight! It costs £1.75 for the tub, but you can also buy a pack of pre-measuerd sachets. It's really simple to make, just add hot (not boiling) water to 4 heaped teaspoons of the powder and stir well. You do need to make sure that the water is not boiling as it won't stir in as well and you end up with quite a few bits floating in it with boiling water. When it's made with hot water though, it stirs in really quickly and you don't get any bits that have not dissolved, which is something I've never encountered with an instant hot chocolate before. When you mix this stuff up it makes an amazing amount of frothy bubbles which are really nice and add to the indulgent experience of the hot chocolate. The hot chocolate also tastes fantastic. Unlike most instant hot chocolates it doesn't taste at all watery, but rather has a really chocolatey, creamy taste, with just a hint of mint. The mint flavour is not that strong which is nice as it doesn't overpower the chocolate flavour but compliments it instead. The froth of this hot chocolate combined with the thick texture of the chocolate itself make it a really indulgent treat that really is a pleasure to drink, and it's certainly the best instant chocolate drink I've tried so far! A serving of the chocolate gives you 99 calories, 14.8g of sugar, and 2.6g of fat (2.4g of which is saturates), so it really is an indulgent drink which should only be enjoyed in moderation and alongside a healthy diet.
Well I just made myself a nice cup of this so I thought I'd write a review while I have the inspiration in my hand!!!!! :-D Well we all know of Aero Mint, they've been around for years. And now, you can get this, Mint Aero Hot Chocolate, along with plain aero and orange aero flavours, but this is my favourite. There are two ways you can buy this, either in the 8 sachets (8x24g) or a 288g tub, which requires you to measure out your own measure of powder. But at £1 a tub at the minute in Asda, you can't complain at all!!!! :-D Aero Minty is made by Nestle and the Nutritional Values per serving with 200ml water are: Calories: 99 Sugars: 14.8g Fat: 2.6g Saturates: 2.4g Salt:0.4g so a mug every now and again isn't going to destroy your waistline!!!! The drink itself is soooo delicious!!!!! Its creamy and does actually have a huge frothy head on top which is just like aero!!! Unlike most hot chocolates which you get in a tub like this, its very easy to get the right amount without the drink been watery with no taste. The drink doesn't need extra sugar adding to it, and even when made with just water (sometimes I make hot chocolate with milk instead) the drink is sooo milky and smooth. I wouldn't recommend the drink to people who don't like sweet things, as the drink is very very sweet, but it is hot chocolate afterall!!!!!! It leaves a yummy minty taste after you've drank it and makes your insides warm!! As you might be able to tell I love this drink! I think its very possibly my favourite hot chocolate, its so easy to make, normally instant hot chocolates are too watery for me, they don't taste at all of choccy, and I'd rather have a cup of coffee, but this really si gorgeous!!!!! If you like minty chocolate, then I most definitely recommend this hot chocolate to you all!!!!!!! :-D and as you can see its not too unhealthy like some!!!! Lol....ok its not really the type of thing you can drink 5 times a day 7 days a week!!! :-p But mmmmmmmmm you'll want to!!!!
Aero mint bubbles. As I love Aero I wasn't sure whether to get this or not, after all it meant I had high expectations considering I love the actual chocolate so much. This is a great tasting hot chocolate. :) I wasn't sure I would like a mint flavoured drink however, it works well. I bought a jar from Tesco's and if I remember correctly it was not far from £3. I prefer to pay a little extra and get a drink that tastes nice. This jar usually lasts around 2-3 weeks so definately money for value. ** Instructions ** The drink is very easy to make. Put 4 heaped tea spoons of the powder into a mug and add water, however , the instructions are pacific and say that the water should not be boiling but just hot other wise the bubbles may not develop as well as they should. Therefore I normally stop the kettle before it has fully boiled. This is to try and ensure that there are plenty of bubbles. A few times I have completely forgotten this and added boiling hot water and I have seen no difference at all. There were plenty of bubbles and it seemed exactly the same! The ingredients are Fat- reduced Drinking Chocolate, (sugar, Fat-reduced cocoa powder, Sugar, Hydrogenated Vegatable oil, Glucose syrup, Lactose, Whey permeate, Salt, Flavourings, Stabilisers This drink contains 99 calories per 200ml serving and 2.6g fat. Definately worth a try , especially if you enjoy aero chocolate. Like I said I bought my jar of Aero mint chocolate from Tesco's however, it can be found in the majority of leadig supermarkets. This can also include Somerfield, Asda & Morrison's. Hope this helps :)
I bought this product today from Asda, I have slight sore throat and really felt like a nice hot chocolate. I was finding it hard to decide whether to get the normal hot chocolate Areo or the one with mint, I then decided I would try something new as I don't mind the mixture of chocolate and mint. I bought the jar (288g)for £1.49 as it was on offer. The ingredients are Fat- reduced Drinking Chocolate, (sugar, Fat-reduced cocoa powder, Sugar, Hydrogenated Vegatable oil, Glucose syrup, Lactose, Whey permeate, Salt, Flavourings, Stabilisers It is very easy to make, bascially you just put 4 teaspoons of this powder in a mug and add hot water. It then turns and looks very bubbly and you mix it. It looks really delicious and it tastes great to begin with but then it can taste a bit strange when you drink a bit of it, hard to explain, as in the minty taste gets very slightly bitter. It is not bad but I think I would have enjoyed a plain hot chocolate. Overall a lovely hot drink and unusual taste, on the packet it actually states it was voted product of the year by consumer survey of product innovation 2008, so perhaps my sore throat is the cause of the slightly bitter taste and I perhaps will retest when I feel better. It contains 99 calories per 200ml serving and 2.6g fat.
Yummy!! I do enjoy a lovely mug of hot chocolate (particulary during the colder months of the year) and have tried out many of the ones available at one time or another! I saw Nestle Aero mint hot chocolate during a trip round the supermarket and popped it straight in the trolley. I love chocolate especially chocolate with mint so was looking forward to trying it out that evening. You place the contents of the sachet into your mug and add hot (not boiling) water and stir well, it says to stir well and you do really need to stir well as this ensures it is bubbly and that the powder has been mixed in well enough, (you don't want one of those delicious bubbles to burst and deposit a blob of the powder on your tongue!) Then drink and enjoy!! Well I did anyway!! I really liked it, it was bubbly (as you would hope being an Aero drink) and had a lovely minty chocolate flavour. I first purchased a box of sachets but now buy it in a jar which is currently priced at £1.99 for a 288g jar in Tesco Product details Ingredients Fat Reduced Drinking Chocolate (41%) (Sugar, Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder), Skimmed Milk Powder, Sugar, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Dried Glucose Syrup, Lactose - Whey Permeate, Lactose, Thickeners (E466, E415), Salt, Flavourings, Milk Proteins, Stabilisers (E340, E452i, E331) Per serving with 200ml water contains: Calories 99 5%, Sugars 14.8g 16%, Fat 2.6g 4%, Saturates 2.4g 12%, Salt 0.4g 6% of an adult's guideline daily amount*.
Mint flavoured chocolate drink
