Product Review - Magnum Ice Cream Bars
Foodbuzz and Magnum Ice Cream mailed me a coupon to sample their ice cream bars which are rolling out for the first time this month in the US. On the same day I received the coupon, I stopped at the store and added a box of them to the cart. I selected Magnum's Double Chocolate bars - creamy chocolate ice cream enrobed in a rich chocolatey sauce and thick Belgian milk chocolate.
Later that night, after a healthy salad for dinner, I whipped out one of the ice cream bars (one of three in the package). I took a few photos and then bit in. It wasn't until I was three bites in that I was getting all three delicious layers in the same bite. Heavenly. Very rich, but heavenly. It reminded me of The Cheesecake Factory's Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake - so rich you could share, but so good, you really don't want to.
I really liked it and think for the quality and taste that they are worth the retail price ($4.99 at my local grocery store).
Other varieties they offer are:
Magnum Classic - Silky vanilla bean ice cream dipped in a thick layer of Belgian milk chocolate
Magnum Almond - Silky vanilla bean ice cream covered in a thick layer of Belgian milk chocolate with crunchy almonds
Magnum Double Caramel - Silky vanilla bean ice cream enrobed in a luscious chocolatey coating, rich caramel sauce and thick Belgian milk chocolate
Magnum White - Silky vanilla bean ice cream dipped in a thick layer of Belgian white chocolate
Magnum Dark - Silky vanilla bean ice cream dipped in 60% cacao Belgian dark chocolate
