New Ice Cream this Summer: Magnum Minis and Mounds Ice Cream

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on September 5, 2012

This summer has seen a surge in ice cream flavors in the US – specifically from Unilever.  Here’s what’s new:

  • MAGNUM, the world’s most luxurious ice cream bar, has introduced the Mini line of petite treats in Classic and Almond.  MAGNUM has also added two new varieties to its traditional-sized bars, which include Mint and Mochaccino.
  • Breyers Blasts!, the line known for featuring fun mix-ins from the most loved candy and cookie brands has also added four new flavors including Chocolate REESE’S, Golden OREO, Cookies & Cream, OREO Birthday Blast! and Klondike Krunch. Banana Split and S’mores flavors are also available nationwide.
  • Klondike is taking their famous Original Choco Taco to the next level as they have introduces the  Chocolate and Peanut Butter varieties, as well as the new Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich.
  • Good Humor has added to their classic candy treats after last year’s successful introduction of REESE’S Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup.  They now offer Mounds and York Ice Cream Bars.
  • As you may have heard, Popsicle introduced a new line: Yosicle, which combines ice pops with combining ice pops and the smoothness of yogurt. Popsicle also partnered with SOUR PATCH KIDS to introduce fruity, candy-inspired pops that replicate the sour then sweet taste of the classic candy.

I received some coupons to sample some flavors and here are my thoughts.

1. Magnum Ice Cream Minis: These are spectacular. One of my favorite desserts has always been Dove Minis and while the Magnums are a little larger (and more caloric) they are still excellent. I highly recommend these. I would even get a box of Minis over a standard size as it will last longer since there are 6 in a pack instead of 3.

2. Mounds Ice Cream Bars: The new Mounds bars are good, though not as good as the Magnum minis. If you like non-ice cream Mounds bars, you’ll find that the ice crea Mounds quite aren’t as richly coconut as the non-ice cream bars. But they are still good for a dessert.

I’m also looking forward to trying the Peanut Butter Chaco Taco before the warm weather disappears!

Magnum minis are definitely better than the regular ones. It keeps you from getting that overwhelmed feeling.

From since I can remember, Diablo ranked 9. 6 on Gamespot in 1996 and hardly any game came close to that for several years. D3′s got some pretty big shoes to fill!

In the end I’m not one of these in which will sit on large horse claiming that if I had the opportunity to make more money from my work I can’t, so I will not call blizzard greedy like a lot of others garnering images for any fat white man from the cigar behind a pc somewhere, it is their products, and DUH profit is what they are creating it for, however in this case I am just chosing not to have it.
