I remember the old days when the competition started, "Mirage" versus "Aero". I’m not really sure why each one of these bars is so good; I mean its chocolate and air. So I’ve decided to use the "Mirage" bar as a personal look into why air and chocolate go so well.

First of all the trick is to have decent quality chocolate, if its cheap it just doesn’t seem to work. I tried one in the past, a cheap one that is, and the bubbles just crumbled and it was a mess. This can also be a problem if your bar is a little old. So here’s my theory on the bubbles, I think it allows the chocolate to remain as thin as possible therefore allowing the chocolate to melt faster giving the illusion that the bar is melting. This is what makes these treats melt in your mouth so well, but this is just a theory, I’m no scientist.

So the "Mirage" is a great bar with bubbles. It may not be as big as it looks, but it melts real good!
