Review: Magnum - Almond Ice Cream Bar

The new rich kid on the ice cream block, Magnum ice cream bars are virtually unknown save by those who have traveled abroad. They're working on it though with three short films featuring Rachel Bilson of The OC fame (Viewable on their website here). I recently tried the Almond bar which is a Belgian milk chocolate covered vanilla bean ice cream bar with bits of almonds in the chocolate.

A box of three bars retails for $3.99 but can be found on sale around the $3.00 mark.

The Magnum Almond bar is basically an upscale version of an Eskimo Pie; the chocolate is richer and thicker with quite a few almond slivers, and the ice cream inside has flecks of vanilla bean and is also richer with a strong vanilla flavor.
The chocolate really does tastes like a premium Belgian chocolate bar but combined with vanilla bean ice cream is a little sweeter than I'd like.
I think I'd like a dark chocolate version a little better (which is also an available flavor) since they tend to be less sweet but other than that, it's definitely a premium ice cream bar.
