Magnum Double Raspberry Ice Creams
It wouldn't be January without several new ice creams to tempt us away from our New Year diet resolutions, now would it? Yes, not content with a new range of Magnum Ice Cream Tubs (the white chocolate one is particularly amazing!), they've also brought out a new Magnum Double Coconut and Double Raspberry. The Double Coconut was a bit of a letdown for me, so how does the Raspberry aka "Lampone" or "Frambuesa" compare?
Described as "Raspberry ice cream with a chocolate flavour coating, raspberry sauce and milk chocolate", these are currently £3 at Tesco, and are suitable for vegetarians as well as gluten free.
Well, these surprised me as I found them a lot nicer than the Double Coconut variety! Biting into one, the raspberry sauce oozes out immediately, giving way to the pink raspberry ice cream below...
The combination of flavours is spot on; the raspberry ice cream is subtle and tangy, with the sauce enhancing it and adding some gooey sweetness too. I found these very moreish, maybe it was the tartness of the raspberry balanced with the chocolate, I'm not sure, but the contrast works perfectly. In comparison, I found the chocolate sauce in the Double Coconut variety rather boring.
Overall, this is one tasty Magnum and I'd happily buy these again. I do hope we see yet more varieties in the future...maybe something tropical?!
