Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walls Magnum Ecuador Dark Confirmed sighting: Walls Magnum Ecuador Dark
Posted: 14:12 Thu 26-Apr-2007. Price: 2.49/ box of 3. Location: Tesco, Pollok, Glasgow. Nutritional unusualness: 264kcal per bar, 62% cocoa solids.
"Zeddy" reports: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! I think that says it all. No? Ok, very very nice with a creamy vanilla centre contrasting the dark choc. Lovely.

...Another straight-to-the-point observation from "Zeddy", though there doesn't seem to be half as much interest (or even TV advertising) for its coffee-flavoured Colombia Aroma contemporary. Still, if 62% cocoa solids isn't enough for you, Gillian McKeith apologists Green and Black are launching an "extra dark" 85% Cocoa variety, possibly to counter the imminent threat of Nestle's much-rumoured Black Magic bar. Or, back in ice-cream, there's no shortage of upmarket non-chocolate options, from Carte D'Or Strawberry and Yoghurt Delice, to Bensons' "pure fruit" Chilly Billy Ice Pops, or even frozen "yoghurt, wholegrain cereals and real fruit" combo Walls Frusi (in Fruits Of The Forest, Mango And Raspberry or Pineapple And Raspberry, from 99p for 2x 68g).

Comment: Definatley the best Magnum they have made. NIce to see they have gone back to basics rather than trying to add different flavours in. It's just a classic magnum but with better quality ice cream and the good quality dark chocolate really complimets this. Worth a try even if you aren't a dark chocolate fan.

Comment: Green and Blacks 85% has been in Waitrose for a few weeks. I love dark chocolate and absolutely love this. Very intense chocolate flavour, rich but not so rich that you can't eat the whole bar in one sitting. Definitely not overpowered by 'powdery cocoa' and very definitely a Green and Blacks winner

Comment: Ecuador Dark Magnum's a winner with me, better than classic, mint and white versions

Comment: I've not even tried one of these yet, but does anyone know what the music is to the advert? Lots of high strings, sounds great.

Comment: Music by Yma Sumac from Peru, Song called Tumpa "Earthquake". She's had other songs in films such as in the Big Lebowski.
