As I pointed out in another opinion, I am a sucker for trying new chocolate bars. I was minding my own business in the little shop at University when I spotted a choccie bar that I don’t remember seeing before – Aero Honeycomb. Naturally it had to be tried, and that only means one thing – a new opinion :)

-=Packaging=-
The Chocolate bar comes in a foil wrapper, presumably to keep it fresher for longer. The wrapper is mainly gold – although in reality I would say it was more of a bronzy colour (but I guess that’s a little irrelevant) The middle of the wrapper is white with the words “Aero” in the centre, and the word “Honeycomb” to one side, with little bits of honeycomb behind it.

-=Taste and Smell=-
When you open the packet, the Aero smells just the same as any other run-of-the-mill chocolate bar – well it’s not hard to guess is it? It smelt of chocolate!! When you bite into the bar, there is a pleasing crunch which you expect from the honeycomb. However, the pieces of honeycomb are quite small, and there is only a thin layer of them at the top of the bar. To be honest, the chocolate had melted slightly, which meant that when you bit into it, the flavour of the chocolate completely masked the taste of the honeycomb. The chocolate is very sweet, and leaves a bit of a sickly aftertaste. The chocolate is its usual bubbly-self, the same as in all Aero bars, I suppose this makes the chocolate “lighter” than other chocolates, but it’s hard to tell when it is half melted!

If you do manage to taste a bit of the honeycomb by itself (I picked a bit out of the chocolate for research purposes!), it tastes exactly like a lump of caramelised sugar. Strangely, it had a slightly salty aftertaste. It sounds weird, but it was actually quite nice. Either that or my taste buds are out of whack. Overall, you wouldn’t really notice the honeycomb apart from the initial crunchy-ness, and the fact that it gets stuck in your teeth.

-=Nutritional Information=-
There are 199 calories per bar (compared to 250 calories for Nestles Double Cream), so it is probably on par with other chocolate bars. (Have just checked a Mars Bar and it is 281 calories – ahh!) There are also 10g of fat, which again is better than Nestles Double Cream which had 14.5g. There is no mention of being made in a factory that “may contain nut traces”, so I’m assuming that it is okay for people that have nut allergies. It doesn’t say whether it’s suitable for vegetarians either, but I looked at the ingredients, and I can’t see why it would be unsuitable.

-=Cost and Availability=-
I paid 39p for this at the newsagents at University, and it was roughly the same price as other chocolate bars, so it’s not going to break the bank! I hadn’t seen this chocolate before, but if the Uni shop has it (which isn’t the most “modern” of places), I’m guessing that you would be able to find it quite easily in other newsagents/supermarkets/ petrol stations etc.

-=Conclusion=-
The chocolate was okay, but if you are a big fan of honeycomb, then you are probably better off with a Crunchie. I would eat it again, but I might as well have been eating a normal Aero for all the difference the honeycomb made.

As always, thanks for the read, and continue to enjoy chocolate :)
