Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walls Magnum Temptation/ Carte D'Or Caramel Cinnamon Waffle Confirmed sighting: Walls Magnum Temptation/ Carte D'Or Caramel Cinnamon Waffle
Posted: 12:44 Sun 19-Apr-2009. Price: 3.40 (pack of 3)/ 2.99. Location: Lanark Somerfield/ Hamilton Sainsbury's. Sub-flavours: (Magnum Temptation) Caramel and almonds, or "Chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce plus white Belgian chocolate chunks and brownie pieces in a dark Belgian chocolate shell".
A double-scoop of Zeddy today, opening with: The chocolate Magnum has chocolate ice cream, brownies and white chocolate pieces all wrapped in a Belgian chocolate coating. The ice cream isn't too chocolatey in that overpowering cocoa-type way. The brownies are chewy and the white chocolate pieces are suitably chocolatey (I'm struggling here, aren't I?) This Magnum is quite nice but not a patch on that Dark Wispa'd centre one I found in Spain a while back. 3 to a pack each in a separate little coffin.

...(In case you were wondering, these appear to be an improved form of the trial version "robertster" sampled in late 2007, though the individual boxes remind me most of KFC's Boneless Banquet from the same year.) Anyway, Zeddy seems much more tempted by Walls' Carte D'Or Caramel Cinnamon Waffle, hailing it as: "IMMENSE! Yes that's right. Absolutely delicious! I'm pretty sure I will develop a 'habit' for this stuff. Creamy, caramel-icious and (drum roll) cinnamon-tastic. This is my product of the year."

If you'd like to have a go yourself: "I'm working with Ben and Jerry's," admitted "Lee Washington", "and thought that you'd be interested to hear that Ben and Jerry's today announced a competition called Do The World A Flavour", where you can win a trip to the Dominican Republic and possibly have your idea made into Ben and Jerry's 2010 worldwide flavour (like what they claimed happened with 2006's Glastonberry). Thanks "Lee", but you didn't think it worth mentioning that this Tue 21 Apr is also Ben and Jerry's Free Cone Day?

Comment: All Carte D'Or ice cream is half price at Sainsbury's at the moment too! Go on, smack Jamie Oliver in the face.

Comment: forgot to mention - there's been half-price offers on 3-packs of Magnum Temptations in Tesco and maybe other places too?

Comment: I should probably try and track these Magnums down. The advert makes them look rather tastier than the one I had a couple of years ago. Brownies and white chocolate? Yumston 12.

Is the half price still on?

Comment: Now that I have had time to consider my initial thoughts, the Carte D'Or caramel cinnamon waffle ice cream could do with more cinnamon. Mind you, what couldn't?

Comment: Off the Ice Cream at the moment (athough never really been a Carte D'Or fan but Zeddy, my 'snacking buddy/soulmate' all sweet stuff could indeed enjoy the splendour of a dash of cinnamon
