Before becoming Nestle’s product, it was actually a chocolate produced by Rowntree’s until Nestlé acquire them in 1988. The Aero is very popular with its bubbly texture that melts in the mouth and collapses into smaller pieces. It actually has several forms including the Aero Biscuits, Aero Bars, and the original Aero Mint.
Aero’s initial wrapper for the mint version was green and brown for the milk chocolate variant. When Aero was still handled by Rowntree’s, it had a slogan on the wrapper that reads “Hold on tight or I’ll fly away!”.
