Click pic to view comments - Semi-international sighting: Walls Magnum Temptation Semi-international sighting: Walls Magnum Temptation
Posted: 22:15 Tue 18-Sep-2007. Price: Unknown. Location: Unilever House, London. Sub-flavours: Possibly a nut version. Nutritional unusualness: 268 calories each.
"robertster" reports: As part of a tour of Unilever's UK head office during the Open House Weekend we were given free ice-creams. The most exciting of these was the Magnum Temptation [slightly mad Spanish website here]. The languages on the box suggest that it's only available in Italy, Spain and Switzerland. But yes, that's right, it comes in a box! Inside the box is a Magnum smaller than normal with only slightly thicker chocolate. Within the casing it was pretty standard vanilla ice cream with a ribbon of caramel and some pieces of strong dark Belgian chocolate.

It was nice, but the bitter chocolate pieces were too overpowering for me. If it is ever released I doubt I'd be prepared to pay the premium it'll cost. They also had Walls Frusi which looks like it is available here, though I've not seen it in the wild. It was rather good thanks to the amazingly strong tasting fruit pieces.

..."robertster" returns with this tantalising glimpse behind-the-scenes at Walls HQ - I can confirm that Frusi seems to be sold by Tesco (in Fruits of the forest, Mango and raspberry, or Pineapple and raspberry), and apparently contains "50% of your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C", a claim only slightly more convincing than the "Every Pot Contains One Fruit Portion" of Muller One A Day, which is basically a Muller layered yoghurt with an extra "corner" of another fruit compote on the side (in Raspberry and peach; Blackcurrant and apple; Passionfruit, orange and apricot; Banana and strawberry; and oh you get the idea).

Comment: Not impressed by Muller One A Day yogurts. I tried the peach and raspberry one and found there was far too much sweet fruit compote for the amount of yogurt. A bit sickly in my opinion. Unless you don't find there is enough fruit in a normal Fruit Corner, you are likely to agree with me. Also a really unappealing combination of colours: the peach compote in the small 'corner' was murky orange and the raspberry compote and yogurt in the other side had mixed up a bit, turning pale pink with red streaks of raspberry compote. Not particularly appetising at all. I have now reverted back to the Healthy Balance corners, with crunchy granola, and the original Fruit Corners - both which I think are delicious.

Comment: Actually it's the same price as other magnums and the pieces inside are dark chocolate coated almonds.
