Hershey's Air Delight : Aerated milk Chocolate bar.

Sometimes when you are a part of a site like this, you run into a situation where you see something new in the store and know that you should get it to review, but you just don't want to. You just have a bad feeling from the start but your urge to bring snack knowledge to the masses overcomes it and you end up buying the item. A similar situation brings us to this review.
The Hershey's Air Delight.
Yay it's a hershey bar...but with more air....wtf.
The package declares that it is "Aerated Milk Chocolate". What does that even mean? Well instead of being a regular Hershey bar, it has holes inside. Yup. Same cost, but less chocolate, and you're supposed to be excited about it.

Unlike a regular Hershey bar, this only has one row...
So what does it taste like? Well, it tastes like Hershey's chocolate. There's really not much else I can say. It's boring. While eating it I felt the intense urge to just shake my head and shrug a dozen times. To look around and see if I could catch anyone's eye in the room so I could convey how unimpressed I was.


I mean, if you like plain chocolate bars, this will be something you might love. I wanted to dip the damn thing into a jar of peanut butter, myself. Hoping that the Spongy Bone-like middle would help me scoop more peanut butter of the jar with each try.

See? Very similar. 
So I knew what I was getting into. This thing just isn't anything special at all. Fat guys want a candy bar that is something new, that we've never seen before. This was both bland and boring AND a rip off of something else. Yup. I liked this candy bar WAY better when I was a kid and used to get them when I went on trips to Canada, when it was called an AERO BAR!

CANADA ORIGINATED THIS CONCEPT!
The Aero bar was good too. The chocolate was more melty and the holes were bigger so it ended up being a delicious gooey mess halfway through. Perhaps my longtime love of Canadian candy bars is clouding my judgement on this one, but whatever. Hershey's should be ashamed. Thieves.

In the end, I would stick to whatever you're calling your favorite candy bar and don't drop the money to try one of these Air Delights. Boring. Plain. Not worth it. 
I give this candy bar a D!

  1. The Aero bar is from the UK. They have mint and caramel versions of it if you want something a little less bland.

    Although, to be honest, good chocolate (not Hershey's, therefore) is a treat in itself and shouldn't/doesn't need cheap ol' peanut butter.

  3. Huh, I didn't know Americans didn't have Aeros (Canadian here, I think they're shaped differently in the UK). When I was a kid I loved the mint ones. They're freaky bright green inside:

  4. I really liked this chocolate bar, it melted in my mouth. I didn't want to dip it into anything. It was like having a truffle with fudge inside. I like plain hershey's and yea, I'm not a fat girl, I'm fairly small, It takes me a couple to eat one, its just a treat. Delicious. Get you a Reese's bar, they are out now..one giant candy bar of Reese's of richness. Thanks for the blog!
