A brief history of AERO®
1935 saw the launch of Rowntree’s “new chocolate”, AERO, aerated milk chocolate in a milk chocolate shell.
Production of AERO was stopped for almost a decade due to WW2 milk shortages, but began again in 1950.
AERO first featured on TV in 1955, with the caption “The milk chocolate that’s different”.
AERO Peppermint was launched in 1959, initially just in the Midlands, before being rolled out across the country later in the year.
AERO saw the launch of AERO Orange to Aero’s range.
2005 saw another format launch for the brand, with the introduction of AERO Peppermint Bubbles.
The Nestlé Cocoa Plan was launched. AERO is part of the Nestlé Cocoa Plan, which works with UTZ to ensure a better future for cocoa farmers and even better chocolate for you.
Nestlé achieves 100% sustainable cocoa supply in the UK and Ireland.
Launch of AERO® Bliss. AERO® Bliss Gift boxes contain individually wrapped velvety whipped chocolate bubbles, with an indulgent filling. Gift a little Bliss!
Today, AERO remains the original bubbly chocolate bar, with over 4 million bubbly bubbles made every day in the UK. In fact, our products are enjoyed by over 8 million people every year!
