We all know that Magnum do a Peanut Butter Ice Cream lolly, but did you know that they also do the Magnum Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar? Personally I hadn’t a clue and I found this little gem tucked away in Home Bargains.
I have never had a Magnum chocolate bar and to be honest I don’t really care for their ice cream lolly either so the only thing this chocolate bar had going for it was the promise of peanut butter. Stubby in appearance, for a mere 50p it wasn’t too badly priced.
Milk chocolate bar with peanuts and a soft filling (56%) containing caramel, peanuts and crispy crepe pieces
Appearance wise it’s pretty darn lickable, look at those layers. There was soft, crunchy, chewy and smooth, the ever changing texture was interesting and made for an exciting bar. This unfortunately was where the positives ended. The caramel layer was all caramel no salt, the peanuts tasted raw and didn’t marry well with the other elements and there wasn’t even a hint of peanut butter. The chocolate well that was pretty grim, the quality was naff and cheap, it didn’t taste like the ice cream version which begs the question if they have used ‘Magnum’ chocolate why does it taste so different when not wrapped around ice cream? Food for thought right there.
No just no, this isn’t for me. Magnum stick to your ice creams and leave the chocolate bars to the experts. There’s plenty of room for improvement here, namely the chocolate quality and the need for some peanut butter, and if I were you skip on over this one and grab a Snickers or a Starbar.

Fab review – love it! Definitely will not be buying one of these!! Naff chocolate is just not for me!! Cheapskates!
The Magnum choc bars are made by Kinnerton. Same company who make all those cheap and nasty character advent calendars and Easter eggs.
Ahhh well that explains a lot! Why companies do this aside from saving money is beyond me
