Wall's Magnum Classic
Advantages: Taste fantastic, lovely in the summer
Disadvantages: Not cheap and not very good for you
One of my summer indulgences are Walls Magnums and although we have been in the height of winter recently, last week I just really fancied one so I went out and brought a pack!
I'm sure most of you have tried Walls Magnums but for those of you who haven't, the description of one is quite simple. It is basically a lollipop format with the magnum itself being on the usual small wooden stick. Surrounding the stick is a thick mound of creamy vanilla ice-cream, coated by a thick layer of milk chocolate. Delcious!
Obvoiusly with this being chocolate I would recommend you consume straight from the freezer as it does melt rather quickly! I really like the two different textures you get with magnums. The vanilla ice cream is really smooth and creamy and yet the chocolate is quite thick and has a lovely crispness to it. These two different textures compliment each other really well and make for a very tasty ice cream / lollipop.
I really like the fact that the milk chocolate coating doesn't taste like cheap chocolate. You can tell this is a really good quality chocolate and cracks as soon as you bite into it. Again, the vanilla ice cream is of a high quality too. It's creamy, without being sickly and melts in your mouth.
A pack of three magnums will cost £1.75, which lets face it isn't cheap. However in my opinion they are well worth spending your money on and in the summer you can quite often find these on offer for £1.00. If milk chocolate isn't your peference then you can get magnums with white and dark chocolate coatings too, but the milk chocolate is by far the best in my opinion. If you like all the flavours you can buy a six pack snack box where you get six smaller sized magnums in the box with two of each flavour. This six pack costs £2.97 at full price, but at present you can get them from Tescos for £2.00.
The range of magnums have quite recently been extended and you can now get truffle, caramel, gold and mint flavoured magnums, though again the classic milk chocolate one is the best for me.

Ok, lets face it the above statistics aren't great and you probably wouldn't want to buy a pack of these if you are dieting rigorously! However, for an indulgent treat these really are gorgeous! They are refreshing in the summer and really tasty. They are filling but without being too sickly.
Overall, even though you have to pay over the odds for these Magnums in comparison to other similar products, these really are worth the extra pennies. They offer really high quality chocolate and a lovely vanilla ice cream centre. I highly recommend you try these, they really are delicious and a lovely treat in the summertime.
Summary: Ignore the nutritonal statistics and eat them anyway!!!
