Aero Bliss Mixed selection (Asda) By @Cinabar

A year ago I wrote about Kit Kat Sense selection box from Nestle and as I looked at these new Aero Bliss Selection also from Nestle I could see similarities. It started with the box, the first time I saw it (on the Kit Kat Senses) I thought it was wonderfully innovative, opening up into a bowl like structure and this box of Aero Bliss Mixed selection is the same. I’m not criticising, I think it is a lovely packaging idea.

The flavours were similar too, a nutty one, a salted caramel one and plain one in the Aero box, here we have Praline, Salted Caramel and Milk Chocolate. I see what they did there. The chocolates themselves though are obviously very different, these aren’t in the least like Kit Kat. The chocolates are domes with a filling of what I assumed would be Aero chocolate but that didn’t seem to be the case either.

Milk Chocolate
The Milk Chocolate one wasn’t filled with Aero bubbly chocolate but something more similar to a mouse with bits in it, which were cocoa pieces according the the box. It was a nice chocolate, smooth and soft and was sweet and pleasant. It wasn’t something that was obviously Aero like.

I love nuts and chocolate so I like the flavour here, it was sweet and the roasted hazelnut worked well with the mousse like filling. That was my problem though, where is the solid Aero filling? If it didn’t say Aero on the wrapper I wouldn’t have minded.

Salted Caramel
Now the taste of this particular chocolate was amazing, the caramel and salt were strong and the salt enhanced the toffee like flavours. Each crystal in the mousse worked remarkably well. I really liked this chocolate but couldn’t get passed the missing Aero section.

To me these are just soft truffles in a box. I’d go as far as saying they are tasty and enjoyable soft truffles in a box, and very much worth trying. Unfortunately I couldn’t work out the Aero connection, mousse and Aero aren’t really the same thing. As much as I liked the flavours and the packaging, if you are an Aero fan you might be disappointed with the contents. I wanted solid chocolate bubbles with interesting flavours not just mousse.
