Very disappointed in the ice creams i used to love
Why did you have to change a great ice cream?????? The chocolate is thin, i can count on 1 hand the amount of so called slivered almonds and they have become very small. I had i tonight with not 1 almond. I will buy no more.

Corporate greed has destroyed a once great product
What happened to magnum almond ? I bought a box for the last time today. Not only are they more and more expensive (3.90 GBP compared to 2.80GBP for a box of 3 in 2017), the chocolate is way, way thinner, the size has shrunk to a ridiculous level, and there was almost no almonds to be seen on the lollies. Frankly embarrassing to share with my guests. Corporate greed is destroying the quality of a once beloved treat.
It used to be a nicely sized ice cream (120ml), with a thick, luxurious layer of chocolate and cracking, nicely sized pieces of ro...

Worst Magnum ever!
Tonight I was embarrassed to share with my guests the worst Magnum ever. More than twelve months ago I wrote a review on my disappointment on the deteriorating quality of Magnum Almond- in size, flavour, thickness of chocolate, texture of ice cream . Its got worse! The chocolate coating had no flavour- tasted like copha, was thinnest its ever been, the ice- cream was icey not creamy at all, and the few nuts on the coating were not the slivered almonds of past but small pieces like crushed nuts- and I could count them on both hands. My family has agreed- last Magnum purchase ever- plenty other better options out there- once a firm favourite designated to LAST!

Don’t taste the same awlful
Bought mini magnum almond 6 pack today, the vanilla ice cream just awful leaves a horrible after taste definitely you have changed the recipe. Won’t be buying again the whole family come to the same agreement

Dangerous Foreign Bodies in My Magnum
Ripped into my reduced size Almond Magnum that I paid nearly $10 for a box of 4 for at Wollies and got more than I expected. Instead of just almond slithers in the chocolate I got slithers of sharp, dangerous sized, sticks that fortunately I got in mine, but not in my grandchildren’s. If they had got my Magnum it would have been a dangerous choke hazard as well as potentially causing lacerations to their throats. I rang the Streets complaints department, unfortunately it was after hours, left my phone number and the problem I’d experienced. I g...uess Streets complaints department personnel didn’t see it as a problem, as they failed to return my call. So here’s a little social media payback for the crap ice cream, the failure to care and the horrible customer service.

Tiny and cheap
Shrinking in size, poor quality chocolate and poor quality ice cream. The ice cream is icy and the chocolate is flavorless. These were my favorite treat before bed, but now they belong in the trash!

Decline in size & quality
Remember the full, slightly rounded, oblong shape of an almond magnum? Delicious creamy vanilla ice cream covered in a thick layer of qaulity chocolate embedded with a generous coating of slivered almonds? (Yes, ‘slivered’ almonds!)
Sadly, the almond magnum of today has lost most of its original qualities. Far smaller, thin and shapeless, the ice-cream is not as rich, the chocolate coating is comparativley meager and most devestatlingly, it is only sparsely dotted with a few of almond chips (it looks nothing like the photo shown above) So disappointing!!!

Can't tell difference from original magnums
Great tasting product! I recently tried the cornette dairy free and was not a fan but with these ones they honestly taste just like the original. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a vegan snack.
Streamlined Magnum Icecreams
Very disappointed with the ever shrinking Almond Magnum icecreams. Purchased a pack of 4 ‘regular sized’ from shop only to discover this batch is more streamlined than a similar pack purchased last week from same outlet. Almond slivers on chocolate coating were noticeably meagre as well as product overall very salty to the extent that it drowned out any hint of a chocolate taste.
I won’t be purchasing any more.
Different creaminess between packs and individuals?
I have been eating the Magnum Almond for years. It had always been creamy and indulgent. I always buy the pack of 4. Around a year ago I started to feel their ice cream isn't as creamy as usual and I happened to buy an individual one from a convenient and it was the taste and texture I am used to! I then have been eating the almond ice cream from packs and individuals on different occasions and the result is the same.
I conclude they might have changed the recipe for only the packs.
I wonder whether anyone has the same feeling?
I’ve been eating them for years but today my magnum was different The ice cream isn’t the same creamy smooth ice cream that I’m used to. A little disappointing
Streets Magnum Almond is a very tasty, creamy and delicious ice cream, though over the years it has somehow gotten smaller in size but the flavour is still very delicious. I love it; it's been one of my favourite for a long time.
One of few that is still good
over the years i feel that Streets ice creams have dropped in quality but I must say the Magnum still gets a big tick from me. Yes the ice cream tends to melt a little faster after cracking the chocolate especially if you take your time indulging but I usually finish within a few minutes so...No dirty thoughts please
The almonds have disappeared
My magnum almond today was terrible. No almond pieces worth mentioning. Possibly 3-4 crumbs on each side.
Sad about the decline in quality. If you want to pay more dollars for a decent product these days, where do you go?
