Something new found itself onto the shelves of the confectionary isle at Sainsbury's this week. A name that you would usually associate with the frozen section has now emerged for the cupboard in the form of the Magnum Chocolate Bar. All the delights of a Magnum ice cream, only not so cold, and in miniature.
I bought a packet of four for £1.50, and each bar contains three mini bars inside. Coated with that familiar and delicious dark coating of chocolate, underneath is a generous portion of vanilla cream. They use real vanilla paste too, as you can see the black vanilla seed flecks.
It is a great way to have a magnum when the cold weather does not permit an ice cream.
