April 2nd: '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' - Edition 68 - Aero Biscuits


Hi All,

It's been another hectic week for me, both in terms of my day job and ChocolateMission goings on!!! I'm sure you are all way more interested in the latter so let me fill you in on a few things. The good news is that this week I've received several more samples from some of our favourite chocolate producers all in time for the Easter reviews you will start seeing appear on the site as of Monday. L'Artisan du Chocolat, Hotel Chocolat, Thorntons ... you name it there has been a package from them - my family and friends haven been the chief beneficiaries of all this :D All the chocolate but without the review writing - lucky for some eh!?

Below this week you will find a link to the News page (updated daily!!), the Kit Kit Competition winner announcement and also the 2nd SNACK OF THE WEEK!!!

Have great weekends - Don't hesitate to get in contact.



Congratulations to Jane Willis from Hampshire who has won the latest ChocolateMission competition. Jane will soon be the recipitent of a pack of the Kit Kat European Cheese that featured on the site a few months ago :D

Judge for yourselves whether that makes her lucky or not :D For those of you who haven't won do not fret! The next ChocolateMission competition is only days away! I have the wheels in motion already!

SNACK OF THE WEEK ..... a new part of '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' which will feature any manner of snacking product I have been products munching on in the week ...

Kcal 99 Fat 5.5g Fat(sats) 3.1g Carbs 11.1g (per bar)

You know the saying about waiting for one bus and then two come along at once? Well Nestle have taken this to new extremes with their Aero brand this year. Before the start of 2011 I don't think we had seen any 'new product developments' on Aero for years. Three months gone in to the new year and we all of a sudden have the Aero Dark, Aero Lamb, Aero Caramel, Aero Orange, and now these Aero Biscuits - what on earth is going!?

I found these bars of 'bubbly milk chocolate with shortcake biscuits' in my local Tesco, merchandised alongside the 100.0g Aero range (i.e. not in the biscuit bar aisle where you might have thought!!). A multi-pack cost me £1.00 and contained 7x17.9 bars which I have been consuming this week as my mid-afternoon snack. Ultimately I would say they fitted this purpose really quite nicely. Despite sounding a little on the light side, the actual bar felt substantial enough, and the shortcake biscuit pieces were portioned more generously than I thought they might. Being Nestle milk chocolate, the taste was predominantly quite sugary and sweet, but it was satisfactory and the biscuit pieces added a relative degree of extra interest with small flavour pockets of brown sugar noted wheat. Chocolate wise these were never going to be turning up any trees, but as a light snacking option I would give them a thumbs up.
