The first question I have to ask myself when I eat this treat is "What is an Aero?" As far as I know an "Aero" bar is a bar full of bubbles that not only makes it lighter (why people want lighter bars I'm not sure) but also helps it melt in your mouth. This bar, although a tasty little treat, really didn't seem to fulfill its namesake. It did have a small thin layer of bubbly chocolate, but the layer was so thin that it really wasn't an "Aero".

As far as being a good treat, it was fine. The chocolate was nice, the caramel smooth, but it just wasn't an "Aero" anymore. It seemed like a standard chocolate caramel bar. The bubbles just didn't hold up. When someone tells me I'm eating an "Aero" and then delivers another treat entirely, it makes me think that whomever came up with this treat is thinking more about banking on the name than the idea behind the treat. The Aero name is not needed, this treat holds up fine on it's own, the small amount of bubbles are just not necessary.
