The Aero is a chocolate bar known for its bubbly exterior and chocolate bubble inside. This creates a rich flavour which melts in the mouth with a nice and soft chew. It is made purely from milk chocolate so the flavour is smooth and even throughout. The name Aero comes from these little pockets of air inside which help to release the flavour quickly.
The Aero bar is a treat, as is its exotic cousin the Aero mint. But, how many syns are in one of these delightful bars and are they worth spending your hard earned syns? Let’s find out.
Chocolate Aero Syn Values
A bar of Aero weighs 36 grams and contains 194 calories. This means a single bar of Aero is worth 9.7 syns, each. This is a moderate amount for a single item similar to a Wispa Gold (9.6) and a Toffee Crisp (9.9).
At under 10, it is a decent amount for a chocolate bar, there are ones with more or less so choosing this is purely down to personal choice. After all, that’s what syns are for.
But…does further analysis on the syn efficiency of the Aero show that it is worth it? How does it compare with others if they all weighed the same? Let’s find out.
Is an Aero worth the syns?
An Aero bar is calorie dense as it is made entirely out of milk chocolate.
When it comes to using syns, people should just eat what they fancy because regardless of whether a syn is worth spending, 1 syn is 20 calories. That being said, you can certainly stretch your syns out more with other bars, here’s why.
The Aero is is worth 0.27 syns per gram of weight, a heavy number when you look at the whole chocolate league table. It’s in the same realm as a Daim, Galaxy and a Twirl.
Lastly, when it comes to an Aero’s synscore it fares even worse at 23% which is almost at the bottom of the league table. The SynScore means if all chocolates weighed the same, which would have the best syns per gram ratio. 23% means it is just above a Yorkie (19%) and under a Daim.
