I heard about Magnum a few days ago. I saw it on a TV commercial and it was mentioned by my cousin next. My sister told me it was all the rave these days. I’m not really a person to follow trends (I still don’t tweet like Denoy does) but the other day I was able to sample Magnum because my sister wanted to eat it (that’s her above grinning like a 12 year old). I just had a bite to see what this trend is all about.
Magnum is an ice cream bar coated by thick Belgian chocolate. I think it is the first premium ice cream stick I’ve heard of. It is available in a number of variants: classic, almond, chocolate truffle, mint, and mochaccino. It is pricier than most at Php 50 from Selecta but I think it is well worth it. Sometimes you really have to pay for good food and this is one of those occasions. The Belgian chocolate coating is indulgent while the ice cream bar is rich and creamy. It gives you a luxurious feeling and with the heat these days, a cold Magnum is a nice treat.
I was able to sample the almond and chocolate truffle variants and I think I enjoyed the almond one better. The chocolate truffle is so rich and decadent I felt my heart stop for a moment! In all, Magnum is a cool instant break that you can reach for during the summer; just don’t eat loads because I’m guessing this is one calorie party too! 😀
