Magnum Gold?!

Growing up, summer meant playing outside, swimming, and cold treats; the ultimate treat being either chocolate mint ice cream or that purple, green and magenta rocket popsicle. Such simple pleasures! Now there are so many more options when it comes to cooling down in the summer. Here's the latest, rather luxurious option: Magnum Gold?!

Magnum Gold?! As is having a bar of "silky vanilla bean ice cream covered in a thick layer of Belgian milk chocolate" isn't enough, the people behind the original Magnum ice cream bars had to up the ante with "gold"! Can't disagree with the casting for their "As Good As Gold" video to promote Magnum Gold?! teehee.

Thanks to Harbinger Ideas and Food Bloggers of Canada (twitter), I got to sample a box of Magnum Gold?! There's also the mini version, which is absolutely adorable! The sea salt caramel inside was a nice surprise. 

I'm not so sure if the "gold" translated too well in the coating (I was looking forward to that one element the most!). It looked more like a creamy golden yellow. I wanted some lustre! :D I find it a bit pricey ($6.99 for a box of 3) so although it scored high point with me (MORE caramel!), I don't find myself itching for more boxes. At least not yet. 
P.S. I checked their site and they have mint! Now I'm super intrigued.
