Review: Magnum - Double Caramel Ice Cream Bar

New Magnum Double Caramel ice cream bars come in a box of three and feature vanilla ice cream dipped in a chocolatey coating, then a caramel sauce, and finally Belgium milk chocolate.

The retail price for a box is about $3.99 but I've seen them on sale in the $2.00 to $3.00 range.

The two words I would use to describe the Magnum Double Caramel are "rich" and "sweet." All the flavors from the vanilla to the caramel to the chocolate are quite rich and the combination of chocolate and caramel (especially the caramel) make the whole affair really sweet.
The caramel comes in a golden liquid layer of sweetness similar to a Caramello bar; it can be a little messy if it drips. It's kind of like a higher quality chocolate candy bar wrapped around vanilla ice cream. I think I'd rather have these as a snack-sized ice cream bar as a couple bites are more than enough dessert for me.

  1. GREAT marketing I'll give them that since it made me want to try it! I love milk chocolate and carmel or toffee. However, I bought the Magnum Double Chocolate Carmel at Circle K. The one bar cost me almost $4! I was extremely disappointed in several things of this downfall treat.

    Do NOT bother buying due to these reasons:
    * The bar is SMALL. It should be double the size of what it costs.
    * It's too sweet! I couldn't eat it!
    * The ingredients are low grade and not a premium or upper quality. 
    * The ice cream lacks the portion and is not as good as many true vanilla ice cream like Dryers or other higher quality ice creams.
    * The chocolate is average.

    Basically, don't buy into the hype of this product. A complete disappointment. I was extremely unhappy with the product. 

    I am glad I only tried the one bar versus buying the store packaged product that comes in (3). I couldn't eat the one I bought, so I would be extremely ticked off buying more.

  3. We've had this ice cream in Australia for a really long time, but under a different name - Magnum Ego.

    This is my absolute favourite ice cream! It is amazingly delicious! So very good, I want one right now.

  4. I'm living abroad in New Zealand right now, and the Magnum brand is really popular (although very expensive- usually 3.50 per bar). I'm hoping they bring the Magnum!?! Flavor to the US.

  5. These are the most wonderful ice cream bars ever invented.  Everything here in America seems to be compared to sex.  Well as far as I am concerned this is better than sex.  The only problem is we are having a hard time find them in Greenville, SC.  We can find all of the other kinds just not the double caramel.  Love it!!!! Love It!!!!
