Today's Review: Double Peanut Butter Magnum

After seeing Amy review these yesterday I made an extra special trip to Tesco to grab some off the shelves. Walls sure are embracing the peanut butter love, what with their Cornettos with that exact name, and now with a magnum containing a double helping of the good stuff. This consists of a peanut butter ice cream, coated in a chocolate flavour coating, peanut butter sauce and a milk chocolate exterior.

The shell on this Magnum is fantastic. The peanut butter sauce sandwiched between the chocolate shells makes it extra thick, and it's very chocolatey. It's a lot more satisfying than a regular Magnum, and that's already amazing enough. The chocolate is of as good a quality as always, and the peanut butter sauce is an excellent addition, providing a lovely creamy flavour. It was perhaps a little too syrupy, a more peanut butter like texture may have worked better, but I can't fault it that much, it definitely provides the peanut butter experience. The ice cream inside is nice and creamy, and while it doesn't provide a big peanut butter hit when eaten on its own, it adds another layer of flavour when eaten with the other elements. I was thinking the ice cream could have had more flavour in it, but that may have resulted in it being too sickly. As it is it's a great, smooth interior that rounds off the whole thing nicely. If you're a peanut butter lover you can't really go wrong with this.

My rating: 4/5
