Aero Black Forest Truffle (Candy Mail) By @Cinabar

Aero Black Forest Truffle

There is something about Black Forest Gateaux that always makes me smile. I love chocolate and cherries and I love the retro feel of the cake. When I saw that Aero had released a bar paired with the flavour, I knew I had to get my hands on it, and I managed to track down the illusive Aero Black Forest Truffle via an import shop.

Once the wrapper is off, the Aero bar is really dark looking, the chocolate isn’t far off being black. I like dark chocolate, so I was more than happy with that. I broke a piece of the bar off and I could see a lovely pink truffle filling on the top of the chocolate bubbles. The aroma of cherries was very strong.

I gave the Aero Black Forest Truffle a taste, and firstly I love the texture. Aero bubbles feel firm then soft and I just think aerated chocolate is the perfect texture. The flavour combines two very strong flavours, the rich hefty weight of the cocoa with a strong hit of morello cherry, adding a sharp contrasting tang. I could imagine some might find this bar a bit overpowering, it is rather full on. I liked the playful mix of flavours and found it very enjoyable to eat. I guess the Black Forest Gateaux cake that this is based on has cream to help tame the flavours and it is that calming influence that is missing. Even without that, this bar is a winner for me.
