DH has been lovely and brought some chocy back from the shop.

Problem it's pain aero i thought everyone knows the best is MINT aero


Feel pissed off at him now!

mumofboyo Mon 15-Jul-13 20:02:22

There aren't enough aero mint balls in the world. Love 'em, but daren't buy a pack as they're too moreish. Yanbu.

needaholidaynow Mon 15-Jul-13 20:03:34

Aaah I wouldn't be fussed either way! Both delish.

It's the orange one that must be avoided! Yuck!

ToucheAwayyyyy Mon 15-Jul-13 20:04:07

Send him back for an exchange.......immediately!!!! the aero that is not DH grin

DawnOfTheDee Mon 15-Jul-13 20:06:14

Orange one for me please

<hopeful face>

Oubliette0292 Mon 15-Jul-13 20:07:11

YANBU - surely everyone knows mint aeros are the best!

YANBU but I agree count your blessings it's not the orange one.

edlyu Mon 15-Jul-13 20:08:41

How can you enjoy biting the top layer carefully off the insides when you only have plain old chocolate to work with? angry

I wouldn't eat mint aero if it was the last food on earth, mint and chocolate together are vile so YABU.

soontobeburns Mon 15-Jul-13 20:13:07

YABU I agree that mint and chocolate together is vile and doesn't work.

LostLion Mon 15-Jul-13 20:14:01

YABU....I love mint and chocolate but the artificial flavoring in mint aero is off-putting. Though I agree you should count your blessings its not an orange one <boak>

BrianTheMole Mon 15-Jul-13 20:16:07

Mint and chocolate together is disgusting. YABVVVU.

Heartbrokenmum73 Mon 15-Jul-13 20:17:41

Oh, naysayers, I present to you - After Eights! Yum yum yum.

And yy to mint Aero - the other 'flavours' are cack.

LadyBeagleEyes Mon 15-Jul-13 20:18:12

Plain aero all the way for me. I quite like orange too.
The only mint in chocolate I like are After Eights and only at Christmas.
They don't taste the same the rest of the year.

LondonMan Mon 15-Jul-13 20:19:01

I think chocolate and orange is the most bizarre combination. It's like mixing orange juice with milk.

TrinityRhino Mon 15-Jul-13 20:19:40


mint chocolate is the chocolate of gods

it is without a doubt the best ever

except I hate after eights

dairy milk bubbles mint is the best ever

catgirl1976 Mon 15-Jul-13 20:19:49


Everyone knows mint aero is the best. i can accurately predict my period based on my level of craving for it.

squoosh Mon 15-Jul-13 20:20:06

I love a Mint Aero but they remind me of a very great loss that I'm still trying to come to terms with, the death of Bendick's Mingles.

<stoic face>

icannotdothis Mon 15-Jul-13 20:20:25

Bloody hell never thought i could have been cursed wiyh an orange one yuk yuk

Still grumpy though


HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Mon 15-Jul-13 20:22:00

YANBU, how dare he.

TrinityRhino Mon 15-Jul-13 20:23:07

omg can you really not get mingles anymore?

holy shit I'm gutted

I mainlined them after the births of dd2 and gecko

After Eights are just as vile, so are those ones you get given in restaurants, the ones in gold foil. As for mint choc chip ice cream, well, that's even worse.

icannotdothis Mon 15-Jul-13 20:26:24

He's fucking eating it all now

Thank god really it was minging!!

GameSetAndMatch Mon 15-Jul-13 20:26:52

mmmmmm. you know the rice crispie thingy recipe that was on recipe of the week the ohther week?

well, melting either mint aero or orange one in instead of tofee, its pretty yum.

but you HAVE to put a bar of mint aero in the fridge otherwise you cant bite the outher layer off and then eat the green stuff! or orange.

I do the same with maltezers and M&Ms. (eat the choc off first, I mean!)

OP, bless your DH, just thank him for doing a sweet grin thing!

HoneyDragon Mon 15-Jul-13 20:37:25

My MIL is still DEVASTATED over the loss of Mingles.

squoosh Mon 15-Jul-13 20:39:16

I feel your MIL's pain!

I would go as far as to say that the loss of Mingles ruined Christmas. Thank god Cadburys started doing those boxes of biscuits for a fiver or there'd have been no point celebrating this year.

HoneyDragon Mon 15-Jul-13 20:41:47


That's what MIL says, a Mingleless Christmas is not Christmas.

PlainOldVanilla Mon 15-Jul-13 20:42:29

YABU mint is vile and they shouldn't sell it! Why have a chocolate bar with mint in confused

kitsmummy Mon 15-Jul-13 20:43:08

Yanbu, your DH is a dick

squoosh Mon 15-Jul-13 20:43:30

I'd rather a Mingeless Christmas than a Mingleless Christmas.

Last year I had a newborn to console me. Not sure if a box of Elizabeth shaw and a box of mint matchmakers will cut it this year sad


<stamps feet>

TheFutureMrsB Mon 15-Jul-13 20:46:57

My dh brought me back an Aero and I told him he could keep it as it wasn't 'real' chocolate blush pmt has a lot to answer for sometimes haha!

TSSDNCOP Mon 15-Jul-13 20:52:26

Will I think if you throw in a Terry's Chocolate Orange (plain) and a bag of cashews you'll be just fine grin

WTAF are Mingles. Which I read as Mingels confused

TSSDNCOP Mon 15-Jul-13 20:53:27

DH brings me Frys Peppermint Creams.

I luffs him trewly.

TSSDNCOP Mon 15-Jul-13 21:02:44

Plain or milk. This is important if I am going to sign the "reinstate mingles" not mingels petition.

Mostly milk but I think there was at least one plain and one white. Correct me if I'm wrong fellow mingle mourners.

TSSDNCOP Mon 15-Jul-13 21:08:29

I'm out. Plain chocolate and mint all the way. Anything else is just boak, including mint aeros.

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 15-Jul-13 22:41:53


Orange is clearly the best. Followed by mint. The plain one is foul though I agree with you there.

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 15-Jul-13 22:43:14

I too am very sad about the loss of Mingles (except the one brown wrapper ones)

SisterMonicaJoan Mon 15-Jul-13 23:23:18

Rice crispies?? Mint Aero??? Must find recipe..!!

showtunesgirl Mon 15-Jul-13 23:32:28

I now fancy a box of Matchmakers! grin

Darkesteyes Tue 16-Jul-13 00:05:00

Mingles were fucking vile. I prefer normal milk Aero Yummm

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Tue 16-Jul-13 00:26:53

Well seeing as they haven't yet brought out a coffee aero I suppose mint will have to do


squoosh Tue 16-Jul-13 00:29:07



WafflyVersatile Tue 16-Jul-13 00:29:40

I would say 'don't buy aero, it's pretty much the most rubbish chocolate bar ever, whichever flavour'.

pollywollydoodle Tue 16-Jul-13 00:36:06's crap chocolate cross-bred with toothpaste..

MyBaby1day Wed 17-Jul-13 02:05:27

YANBU, I'de make it an arrestable offense to not bring anything other than mint aero! grin

FatPenguin Wed 17-Jul-13 18:50:11

They have STOPPED MAKING MINGLES??!? What fresh hell! Why ?
