Magnum Ice Cream Bar - Vanilla Almond
Today I saw the Magnum Ice Bar on sale while wandering through the freezer isle. I thought I would give them a try and see if they lived up to all the hype that the TV commercials were generating.
The packaging is definitely fancy compared to the Haagen Dazs bar. The gold foil wrapping definitely convey a sense of a high end product but will the taste deliver the goods?
I let the bar rest a few minutes on the counter before I took my first bite. I wanted the ice cream inside to be soft so that it won't instantly freeze my taste buds so that I can make a solid judgment. Upon taking my first bite the chocolate shell splintered leaving broken pieces where I had taken my bite. I think the chocolate coating is not as thick as the Haagen Daz bar.
The next thing I wanted to compare was the vanilla ice cream inside. The Magnum bar had vanilla bean specs to convey that real vanilla that was used. It definitely had good vanilla flavor but the ice cream itself was not as thick and creamy as a Haagen Daz bar. It seems like the was more overrun or air in the ice cream because it was very light and fluffy.
Overall I thought the Magnum Ice Cream Bar was good but if I were to spend $4+ on a premium box of ice cream bars I would stick to the Haagen Daz bars.
