This is a very good bar. It's good because it tastes good and it's got a really nice rich and smooth texture. I enjoyed eating this bar, and I would happily eat more if I could. On the surface you would assume that this bar was a success and that it deserves high marks all around. The problem is that there's one fault in this bar, and from a novelty standpoint it's a really big flaw. The problem with this bar is that it's hardly an Aero bar.

One of the common traps that candy companies fall into when they make variations of their popular treats is making it so much of a variation that the original version is totally lost. This is pretty much what's happened with this Aero bar. The novelty of an Aero bar is that it's a fine quality chocolate filled with tiny little bubbles. With the thick chocolate coating, and the fact that the top portion of each square is filled with a very heavy chocolate truffle cream, you pretty much can't feel the bubbles anymore. There's something unique about bars with bubbles, and if you don't have enough bubbles the whole texture and feeling of that bar is lost. I really don't think that this is an Aero bar, it's more like a bar that has a small portion of Aero like chocolate. The focus is certainly more on the rich heavy chocolate flavour.

Some people feel like Aero bars are rip offs. These people believe that the only reason candy companies make bars with bubbles is to sell people less chocolate. If you're one of these people, then this might be your favourite Aero bar. If you're the type of person that feels like the bubbles give the bar a certain texture and flavour, then this bar isn't going to give you what you want. Like I said, it's a really good bar, but I don't think that it's an Aero bar.
