The new size classic magnums are only slightly larger than the mini , and both the chocolate and ice cream has changed for the worse . Even the grandkids commented on it .
Magnum have gone from our nightly treat to never again. What was once a beautiful creamy ice cream covered in luscious chocolate to what is now a watery, iced and really tasteless waste of time. Added to that they have also shrunk. Good luck with continued production of what was once great product.
As a regular consumers of both the magnum classic and the almond my husband and I were extremely disappointed with the last purchase of these products (purchased from Coles July 2019). The ice cream tasted cheap and nasty and I certainly won’t bother to purchase any more....good for the diet I suppose!
The worst experience I’ve ever had. They have changed and are revolting, saved my weight won’t be buying again. Will be throwing in the bin unfortunately
Big mistake streets changing the recipe
Changed formula - nasty taste
Having enjoyed almond magnums for years I am most disappointed to have bought a pack this week and note colour and taste change of the chocolate, and less creamy formulation of the ice cream.
I’ve given this pack to my children. Will not be buying again.
From the best ice cream, to below average...
It wasn't too long ago that magnum ice creams were one of the best treats you could get, so I was quite surprised to find that the chocolate is now super thin, tastes different, and the "ice cream" is now milky and icy and nowhere near as creamy as it once was. Now, you'd have pretty much the same thing if you bought a pack of budget supermarket choc ices - magnum classics are no longer the premium ice creams they once were, but you still pay a premium price for them.
What a shame, Streets.
This not ice cream. It is frozen milk. Even the flavour has gone. You can actually sense the icy particles of milk crunch between your teeth. You can’t even taste the vanilla flavour. Wow. Magnum was the absolute family favourite for many years, but I definitely won’t be buying it again. Wow. Terrible. No wonder it’s constantly on special.
Minim Magnums are terrible - ice cream tastes horrible!
Sadly, the taste of the ice cream is no longer smooth and creamy. I highly recommend you should buy other brands and varieties, if you're looking for a great ice-cream. Sad to taste the difference Streets!
I purchased a 4-pack this week and the ice cream was velvety and creamy and the chocolate very thick and rich.
After reading the other reviews, either I have extremely low ice cream standards or the company has changed the recipe...?
What has happened to your mini magnums? The ice cream tastes terrible. Watered down and icy. Tastes like cheap cheap ice cream. So disappointed and won't be buying again. Why change recipe?
Shrinking airbrushed stinkers
Usually satisfied by eating 1 Magnum in the years leading towards 2019, my poor brother Nick had to eat 4 to get the same enjoyment. Streets, make magnums great again.
Size is bad
Been buying magnums, but no more the flavour is bad the size just keeps shrinking no wonder they are on sale, they decrease the size then offer them as cheaper.
It could just as well be a Choc Ice from the 80s!
Emphasis on the ‘ice’! With chocolate bars getting smaller every year, giant Freddos resembling the size of an original Freddo, and containers of our favourite treats containing less and less of said treats with some tricky packaging ploys to hide the ruse until it’s too late. 2018 has brought with it the same treatment to our Magnum - crappy compound chocolate and tasteless icey ice-cream fluffed up with air. I will not be buying another.
What has happened to these Mini Magnum ice creams?
They now have absolutely no flavour, neither the chocolate or the icecream. Just taste cheap and nasty. Also no lovely almond crunch. Will not buy them anymyore.
Very disappointing feel ripped off.
The decline of a classic.
I knew I wasn’t imagining things. These ice creams have gone far from what they once were. Gone is the quality Belgian chocolate and creamy centre of the original magnum and now it’s cheap and nasty tasting. Why? . Very sad that companies cut corners but you can’t fool peoples tastebuds. Will find a better tasting replacement.
Why change what isn't broken??
My son loves to have his vanilla magnum every night. Not any more!! The bars are smaller, the chocolate thinner which makes it break off in small pieces and the vanilla ice cream, no where near as creamy as usual and has a very distinct 'coffee' flavour. He doesn't like them at all. Very sad!
Terrible quality, not what it used to be
We have been long term fans of Magnums and Mini Magnums. Tonight I couldn’t even finish my Mini Almond Magnum - terrible quality and not worth the calories! Icy watery ice cream (not creamy at all like it used to be) and sickly sweet chocolate that falls apart instantly. Won’t be buying again, totally a waste of money.
Say goodbye to the Magnum as you know it.
Simple things like changing the shape and wood of the stick, and size of the actual Magnum.
"It's tastes like a Bulla!" That's what my friend said to me when I offered him a Magnum from a new just opened packet. Discussion ensued if the recipe had changed. It tastes like it has, nearly not as much fun to eat. In the end, I'm never going to be hungry enough to spend money and eat a dessert that was just average.
Salted Vanilla - so gross
The chocolate is as good as you'd expect, but the icecream is borderline inedible. Salted caramel is one of my favourites, but salted Vanilla makes it taste like it's *from* Johnny, rather than *by* Johnny.
fake ice cream
Progressively Streets no longer make a proper ice-cream. Haven't bought a magnum for a while but this time the so called 'ice cream' has no body to it and seems to disappear in the mouth. Probably a good thing as it is now a vegetable oil product. It also had traces of ice crystals.
The chocolate coating seemed okay though.
