Mayan Mystica Magnum (Sainsbury’s)
Wow – we have had serious sunshine this weekend. I had a wonderful barbecue, and what better summery dessert is there after such a feast than an ice cream? I think this is my first ice cream of the year (on a stick). I choose the new Mayan flavoured Magnum. It is essentially a milk chocolate flavour sweet, creamy ice cream with a shell of milk chocolate with a gentle hint of spices. I picked up on cinnamon and nutmeg within the chocolate, but they are quite mild. Personally I would have liked a hint of chilli mixed in, and a formula that was a little heavier on the spices to seem truly Mayan to me. Still perhaps the majority of purchasers would prefer this milder version? The box does state ‘delicate spices’ so I shouldn’t complain.
The thing about Magnums ‘s when you open one, and you first bite in and crack the chocolate and reveal the creamy ice cream, it is hard to go wrong after that point.
