MAGNUM BAR review
These are ice cream bars - covered with chocolate. There are 4 flavors that I know of - Classic, Double Caramel, Almond and Double Chocolate. They sell for just over $3 a box and only 3 come in a box. As you will see later, that's a good thing!
I thought that 3 bars in a box was a major ripoff - and spending approximately $1 a bar is expensive. These are not the sort of thing that I would buy or eat at any time! Bill loves the Dove bars and this type of dessert though. I sampled (had a bite of) the Classic - Vanilla Ice Cream with the Chocolate Coating and the Double Chocolate - Chocolate Ice Cream, Chocolate Syrup and Chocolate Coating. Whoa!! I wasn't impressed so much with the Vanilla but the Double Chocolate was ridiculous! Really rich, creamy and chocoholic's delight! These rate big for taste for sure! Bill said they were AWESOME.
However, take a look at the box. You will need to hit the treadmill on overtime if you plan to make these a habit. The Classic had 240 calories and 16 grams of fat with 10 grams saturated fat (50% DV). Yikes!! The Double Chocolate was even worse with 350 calories and 21 grams of fat, 16 grams saturated (80% DV). So, there you go. Would I keep these in my house? No way! I have the willpower to avoid these (not like peanut butter chocolate chip cookies) but they are too expensive and too bad for you to keep around. Are they delicious and a great every now and then treat? Indeed!! Probably a good pregnancy pop. : )
