|Magnum Minis sold in Singapore|
And before you even think about it, no, hindi po ako huli sa balita.
I am well-aware of the whole Magnum craze in the Philippines but have decided to opt out from writing about it since a LOT (and I do mean, a lot) of people have professed their undying love to it online already.
BUT this post is focused on a different angle on the whole Magnum craze. Something that I believe have not yet reached our shores.
I've been seeing the Magnum ice cream bars here in Singapore for quite a while, way before it even became available in the Philippines. Case in point. Most major supermarkets and grocery stores here carry boxes of both the regular sized bars and these cute, slightly smaller ones called "Magnum Minis."
A box of minis (S$10.90 or approximately Php330*) contains 6 bars -- 2 each for a certain flavor (making it 3 available variants in a pack.) And believe me, there are plenty to choose from. There's mint and dark chocolate. They even have liqueur infused ones like limoncello and irish creme (for adults only please.)
Of the flavors I've tried so far (I've had double caramel and gold already aside from the usual flavors we have in the Philippines), Magnum White is, by far, my favorite.

Why? I have only 3 words for you... Toblerone's White Chocolate.
Yes folks. It tastes surprisingly like a white toblerone chocolate bar. In ice cream form, of course. One of my faves candies! Yummy!
It's so good and so rich, my diet is simply ruined everytime Hubby brings home a box. Now if only there was a way to eat sweets without gaining an ounce of fat, then I'll be one happy lil girl. J
