Aero Heavenly Mousse with Salted Caramel & Hazelnuts
A week doesn't go by lately without another new product on shelves, and this time it's Nestle's turn with a new type of Aero Mousse. They've just launched this luxury "Heavenly" variety, in a single tub so you can scoff it all yourself without feeling guilty.
I found it in Asda for £1.30, which didn't seem like a bad price for something luxury. It's described as "Milk chocolate mousse with hazelnuts and salted caramel sauce". There's also a Salted Caramel Mousse variety but they were out of stock when I bought this.
Opening the lid, it looked very appetizing, there was a nice amount of salted caramel sauce swirled into the mousse.
I took a spoonful, and found that there were pieces of hazelnut dispersed throughout the mousse. There were more swirls of caramel sauce too, although not as plentiful as those at the top.
The mousse tasted very nice, but the most predominant flavour was of the hazelnuts - they were very strong! I couldn't taste much of the salted caramel sauce to be honest, it came through in vague sweet bursts but wasn't very noticeable. The mousse was light and creamy and the texture went well with the crunchy bits of hazelnut.
Overall, I did enjoy this mousse, but I'm not sure it's quite as luxurious as they're making it out to be. The salted caramel gets a bit lost in everything and apart from that, it's pretty much a regular chocolate mousse with chopped nuts mixed in. Tasty enough, but not groundbreaking.
