Wall's White Magnum Ice Cream
Advantages: Tastes great, rich and creamy with crackly choc coating
Disadvantages: Calories and price
It's absolutely scorching outside today. It's great for Wimbledon, and of course, if you're off work. I've been a bit crook the lastg couple of days, but thought I would tempt an ice cream. One of my favourites is this one, my preferred one in a very good range.
Wall's are very well known in the ice cream world anyway, with their tub of vanilla ice cream long being one of the top tubs around. Their Magnum range is essentially like a choc ice on a stick, with a bit more curvature, and nicer chocolate. Of course, this depends what choc ice you usually have.
It's a thick white creamy ice cream, giving an oval look to it, and about 2-3cm thick. This seems to be the norm for most of the Magnum flavours, with the difference being the hard coating on the outside. This one has white chocolate as a coating, and it is quite a rich white chocolate. As it's frozen, and on a stick, you don't have to worry so much about it dripping or melting, and you can, to a certain extent, keep your hands clean! Once you crack the choc on the outside, however, it eats just like normal choc in your mouth, melting quite quickly.
The whole thing is quite smooth, easy to eat and tastes great. The packaging is quite simple - you can just about see it in the product image above. It's a thin, foiled wrapper which, no doubt, is used for easy access, minimal packaging and to keep the ice cream itself complete inside the wrapping.
Nutritionally, of course, it's an ice cream, so it's not going to be the healthiest thing you can have. A 120g Magnum will give you around 260 calories, with plenty of sugar as well. They're also quite expensive, coming in at around £1 or more for each one. You can buy them individually or in packs of 3, where the price does seem to generally be a little lower, but it's still more expensive than other ice creams out there.
I recommend this ice cream. It's probably my first choice eat time I get one, and while I sometimes go for something different, it's only to get a bit of variety. Wall's Magnum certainly do have a great tasting ice cream, here.
Summary: A very good ice cream, albeit expensive and high in calories
