Worth the Splurge: Chocolate, Caramel + Ice Cream

Drooling yet?

That's the description for Magnum's Double Caramel ice cream bars. I got to try these luxurious gems as part of Foodbuzz's Tastemaker Program, which came just in time for the hot, muggy weather. To me, nothing tastes better after dinner, on a warm summer night, than cold, creamy ice cream. Magnum's Double Caramel flavored bars were nothing short of absolute decadence, with a rich, chocolatey shell enveloping a thick layer of caramel and smooth, ice cold ice cream.

These bars are sold as singles or in a pack of three - which is kind of odd, in my opinion. Regardless, I bought the three-pack, which cost me almost $5 at the Walgreens near my apartment. Knowing I can get a box of 24 ice pops for under a few bucks, I know I would not be able to afford these Magnum bars on a regular basis. Despite the steep cost, however, these bars are definitely worth the occasional splurge - especially in the summertime.

What's your favorite treat to indulge in during the summertime?

  2. I really enjoyed the chocolate ones... but I agree that they're too expensive for just 3 bars. And 3 is a silly number. However it's good when you get two packs: chocolate for me and caramel for Jeff.
