I know that magnum ice cream has a slightly watered down taste ( although it’s definitely creamier than say cornetto’s) but I actually like it that way! Not overtly creamy like some hand-made ice creams and not too diluted either. Ice-cream lovers will probably be shaking their heads at this point xD
I must confess that I never had magnums before in my life and prior to the extensive advertising of magnum gold, I was never aware of their existence. Out of curiosty’s sake, I told dad I was interested to try it and he bought it for me on the way home ( i have the best dad ever :D).
I found Magnum Gold overrated, it was too sweet ( they use milk chocolate for the outer casing) and the caramel swirls inside lacked the depth of flavour I was looking for. The only saving grace was the gold glitter that provided that novelty factor of eating a gold bar :P
But the same cannot be said for the adorable little Magnum minis sold in cartons. The above is milk chocolate and almond, which i rate second best after my all time favourite double caramel.
The double caramel deserves special mention because of the crunchy paper-thin double layer chocolate ( you literally hear the ‘crrack’ sound) with a lusciously rich caramel layer in between. And in defence of magnum ice-cream, I actually saw vanilla specks in the vanilla ice cream.
Perhaps it’s just my personal preference, but don’t prejudice against this store-bought icecream. Mini magnums ( I recommend the dark chocolate flavours) are perfect for distribution during family gatherings and might ( it did for me) make the kid in you smile (:
