Nestlé Confectionery has announced its plans to launch new Aero Caramel, available to shoppers in a 100g sharing bag.

The supplier says that it will be available to convenience retailers and wholesale in the coming weeks, with an RRP of £1.

Amy Kendall, assistant brand manager for Aero, said: “Aero is renowned for its unique combination of chocolate and bubbles that melt in your mouth.

“The science and technology behind Aero made it unique from the start – but 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 were introduced in 2005, and last year Nestlé Confectionery launched Aero Bliss, a new premium version of Aero, available in a boxed format designed for sharing.
