First of all, I was curious to know what Magnum was. The last time we heard, a gun and (ehrmmm…) large-sized condoms were also called Magnum. I didn’t know how hugely popular Magnum ice cream was in other countries. Hubby said he ate it in Iraq, and so did Doc Gelo in Malaysia and Raquel in Germany.
To make a long story short, Magnum the ice cream is here… brought to us by the kind folks of Unilever Philippines. can’t tell you how HOOKED I was when I first bit into its crunchy outer topping made of the finest Belgian chocolate and then drowned in the silky, creamy goodness of its vanilla layer. Heaven in every bite for a suggested retail price of only P50.
Available flavors are Classic, Chocolate Truffles and Almond. Everything’s good but my heart is torn between the truffles and almond. The former tastes luxurious and chocolatey while the latter has a flavor I also can’t resist. No doubt about it: Magnum is my latest indulgence. Good thing it’s so affordable too 🙂
Actress Rachel Bilson is the global ambassador for Magnum ice cream, and here in the Philippines, it’s the lovely Solenn Heusaff (shown here with much-slimmer
Richard Raymond Gutierrez).
More beautiful people at the launch: Liz Uy and Erwan Heusaff.
I was certainly glad to witness Magnum being introduced in the Philippines, mostly because we had a Magnum-all-you-can eatfest 🙂 After this, it’s time to head to 7-11 where it was sold for P60 when I last checked. There’s no doubt this ice cream will be a hit among the masses, especially now that the first trace of summer is here. One Magnum is simply not enough!
