Streets’/Selecta’s Magnum ice cream is one of those food items that spark heated debates–one camp says it’s the best damn ice cream available right now while another camp says there’s really nothing special about it. There seems to be no middle ground when it comes to the Magnum. Ice cream these days, huh?
Anyway, the Magnum has been around for some time now but it has only recently reached our shores and, based on my observations, it’s causing quite a stir. Upon tasting it, I have to say that I’m really not that surprised with the attention it’s getting.
The Magnum, in my opinion, actually tastes good. While it’s not the be-all and end-all of desserts, one can see that there’s something to the hype. Compared to some ice cream bars, the Magnum is indeed superior; it tastes richer and creamier. For me, the chocolate coating alone is worth the price. But how superior it is really depends on one’s personal experience. And if you don’t like it, no one’s really forcing you to buy it. Overall, I think the Magnum simply tastes like really proper ice cream.
