Nestlé has launched its latest addition to the Aero family with the introduction of Aero Caramel, made with responsibly sourced cocoa under the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.

The 100g caramel-flavoured milk chocolate sharing bar is being made at Nestlé’s factory in York, which also produces KitKat, Milkybar​ and Polo​ as well as milk and peppermint Aero​ and Aero Bubbles​.

Aero Bubbles

It will be available to buy in Asda, Co-Op, Morrisons and Tesco stores, as well as wholesalers and the convenience channel.

Aerois renowned for its combination of chocolate and bubbles that melt in the mouth​,” said Amy Kendall, assistant brand manager, Aero.

We continually look for new ways to innovate and delight fans. We believe that Aero Caramel is a delicious new addition to the Aero family and we hope it will soon become another firm favourite​.”

Aero was first launched in 1935 as a peppermint-flavoured chocolate bar and this was followed by the milk chocolate format in the 1970s.

Aero Bubbles was introduced in 2005 and last year Nestlé introduced Aero Bliss​, a premium version of Aero which comes in premium chocolate boxes.

Nestlé Cocoa Plan

The Nestlé Cocoa Plan looks to source cocoa sustainably, while tackling child labor​, improving the lives of cocoa farmers and the quality of its products. Its main sources of cocoa are; Brazil, Cameroon, Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ghana, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, and Venezuela.

The initiative is active in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana and to drive industry-wide transparency it is working with the World Cocoa Foundation’s CocoaAction.
