Well the Wispa Gold has disappeared (again) but Aero have stepped in and brought back their Aero Caramel to fill the void. When I opened the pack I was a little surprised to find that the bar is actually laid out as five pieces of chocolate in cubes. I was a little disappointed by this, as I feel that one of the advantages of Wispa Gold being a proper bar is that it gives itself a really chunky feel, but is easy to eat because the chocolate is aerated. This chunkiness was missing from the Aero Caramel because of the neat easy to eat pieces.
The Aero chocolate within the bar is the standard Aero milk chocolate that you will find in their regular bars. It is a sweet chocolate, but with a pleasant milky flavour. The caramel part has a nice texture, but isn’t overly runny or gooey. It is rather sweet, with a slight salty edge. The bar is about half bubbly chocolate and half caramel, and as both of the major ingredients are quite sweet, it does make for a very sugary experience. I actually had this bar with a cup of coffee, which helped balance the flavour, as well as making it a very nice afternoon treat.
It is a really nice chocolate experience, but the sweet hit might make it a bit much for some. If you have a sweet tooth though, I’ll think you’ll like this new bar.
