Aero is a much-loved chocolate worldwide and is renowned for its unique bubbly texture.
2010 saw the brand celebrate its 75th birthday. Launched in the 1930s Aero was originally going to be called Airways to reflect the vogue for jet travel at the time.
By 1936, Aero had reached New York and is now also available in Canada and Australia. It was one of the first products promoted by Rowntree® primarily on the strength of the brand, rather than the company name.
In the 1970s Aero peppermint bar was launched and is now the most successful flavour variant for the brand.
