Grab the Gold with Magnum Gold
Nearly two years ago, Magnum entered our shores and became an instant craze! It was challenging for me to try it out as it was always getting sold out in convenience stores and supermarkets. I had to wait until the craze died down a bit till I was able to try it out.
Just last weekend, Magnum launches their new flavor here in the Philippines and I was thankful to be have been invited to have a sneak peek (or first bite)!
Doesn’t she look like Angelina Jolie ? But she’s actually Caroline Correa.
It was launched at different malls and I was SM Aura to cover it. They had a golden surprise for everyone who paid for their groceries starting 3pm. Here was their mechanics of their surprise.
- Any purchase at SM Supermarket entitles you to a free Magnum Gold on Feb 9, 2014 at 3pm.
- but it is limited to 1st 200 persons only
- Plus get a chance to win an iPod Shuffle if you can guess the correct combination

We also tried out the game but sadly, none from our group won… which makes us bitter to those who did haha just kidding. Although I am still curious on what were the winning combinations. There were a total of five (5) iPod Shuffles to be won and one of them was in gold color.
Magnum Gold – Verdict
After the event, I went to a tiny corner of SM Supermarket. Then I looked around to see if someone was watching me, and after ensuring that no one was watching me, I started opening the gold and took my first bite. Yummy Belgian Chocolate! The chocolate coating still tastes the same but the ice cream inside was a bit different. Although it was vanilla ice cream, the game changer would be the addition of sea salt caramel sauce. As a fan of caramel and sea salt ice cream, I give this a two thumbs up!
The magnum gold sells for PHP 55 but this February, they have a promo where you can buy two (2) for PHP 100 at SM Supermarket, Savemore and SM Hypermarket.
