Anyone try the new Magnum Ice Cream Bar?

Is it worth the calories? Looks yummy!

  1. It looks absolutely delicious but I'm having a horrendously difficult time getting past the fact that there's another product called "Magnum" that has nothing whatever to do with food. : )

      Bah! Those are just in case you don't finish and need something to put the rest of your ice cream in!

          Ha, ha! It does look really good, though!

            Very cute! these originated in the UK or Canada, I think?

          yes! that's precisely what i thought the first time i saw the commercial...and showing a woman biting into it with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes just perpetuates the connection :)

            You must mean the firearm, right? Right?? :-)

                    very true, and now that i think about it, here in La-La Land it's quite common for young Hollywood types to chug champagne straight from the bottle...but since i typically enjoy my bubbly poured into a flute from a standard 750-mL bottle and i was never a Tom Selleck fan, when i hear "magnum" my mind goes to latex.

                    1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                      In my line of work, when I hear "magnum" thoughts of felon and firearms immediately come to mind ...

                  Yep, my jaw dropped when I first saw the online ad. I keep the sound off on my laptop in case that might have clarified things....but chocolate condoms? Or hugely *oops* unfortunate naming. I googled and found they were a serious novelty ice cream vendor. Of course, next time we were in that aisle (not ice cream) of the grocery store, the Magnums were pointed out on the shelf.

              1. These have been available nearly everywhere else in the world for years (a decade or more). My son was excited when he saw them here because he's a big fan. It's Dove-bar like and very good quality.

                1. Had one last night ..the almond bar..very good and of high quality..
                  The Belgian chocolate is also very good..had a $1 coupon and they were on sale for $3..plus, had a double coupon, so it worked out to $1 for 3 bars..33 cents is a great deal!

                  1. I've been a long-time fan of the Magnum Bar, as duly noted here previously. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/773116

                    And, yes, finally having them in the U.S. is mah-velous ....

                    1. These are insanely good! As mentioned, they have been available all over the world for a bit. I got hooked on them in Thailand and then hooked others on them during a trip to Spain. I am VERY happy these will now be available in the U.S.
