Magnum Tub White Chocolate Ice Cream
Today's review is for something new and very exciting indeed; not content with regular Magnums Unilever have now launched the classic ice cream sticks into tubs...complete with shards of cracking chocolate! There's three varieties; Classic Milk Chocolate, Almond and White Chocolate.
I'm starting off with the white chocolate variety, which is available in Iceland and described as "Vanilla ice cream and white chocolate shards in a cracking white chocolate shell". It's suitable for vegetarians and has an indentation on the side of the tub stating "press to crack". Apparently this breaks the shell coating the inner tub, so you can enjoy the shards of white chocolate that crack off.
As well as that there's a thick disc of white chocolate on top of the ice cream. It didn't take me long to smash into it with a spoon, and luckily it was just the right temperature for cracking...no waiting necessary!
It tasted incredible, perhaps even nicer than an actual Magnum. The ice cream is creamy and luxurious, and the vanilla really shines through in the taste. The white chocolate is just as sweet and creamy and is perhaps the best quality white chocolate I've ever tried in ice cream form. The two combine together to make one hell of an indulgent experience. The extra shards of white chocolate throughout the tub add further texture and creaminess, this tub is literally just an explosion of sweet and creamy!
The tubs are a bit pricey (£3.89 at Iceland) but boy are they worth it. They certainly hold their own against the likes of Ben and Jerry's and Haagen Dazs and more than justify the price. I would definitely recommend these, if you love both ice cream and white chocolate grab yourself a tub pronto!
