Slimy ice cream
I have always enjoyed a treat of Magnum. But the latest offering is terrible. The recipe is changed as though there are artificial thickeners in the ice cream making it a slimy texture. The chocolate is different and not as dark. Whats happened? Has an American taken over the recipe and put in artificial this and that? Their Buttermilk ice cream has changed and also gets a slimy texture in the mouth. I will not buy the product again.

Different ice cream - awful
Used to love these! They've now changed the ice cream and it's nasty and soft as if it's not frozen properly. I binned the latest pack as they were still awful after 4 days in my freezer!

Used to be a favourite premium ice cream.
Smaller, chocolate used to be thick and delicious, now it’s thin and the ice cream not as creamy and is now quite tasteless. Nothing like the indulgent ice cream it used to be. Such a shame.

When magnum first came onto market many years ago, it was a yummy deluxe treat. It's a shame profit has come before customer satisfaction. Decrease in size, ice cream quality changed and a bit watery, chocolate layer thinner and tastes like less cocoa/cacoa (is it still Belgian chocolate?). Very disappointing, I won't buy again.

Mini magnums are a ripoff.Just like everything else.They get smaller and smaller.So many other products are the same.EG biscuits,chips,paper towel rolls,toilet paper.The list goes on and on.Check it out for yourself.Compared with What we grew up with.

Shrinking into oblivion
At the rate magnums are shrinking it won't be long before its just a chocolate coated stick. The excuses that streets have made about calorie counting is total B.S. Such a shame.

The quality of this product has been greatly reduced.
The chocolate is not as thick and tasty and the ice cream flavour has been watered-down.

No longer a treat
Magnums have changed from being a delicious treat to being an unpleasant, expensive waste of money. First thing I noticed was that they are smaller, what used to be a lovely thick layer of quality chocolate is now a thin coating of cheap chocolate and the ice cream tastes watery and tasteless. Last time we will be buying them

I got the magnum salted caramel in a tub. It tasted like smoke BBQ chicken quite gross

Downsizing gone too far.
I've just tried the new ruby magnum. Not bad. But, do the people at streets think they could make them any smaller? This is downsizing gone out of control. I'm not against any business making profits but, stuff me with green apples, this is straight out theft. Not buying anymore.

Change for the worse ☹️
Use to love buying the mini magnums for an after dinner treat but it seems they have changed their recipe And the ice cream is now tasteless and soo disappointing. I won’t be buying them again until they change if back. Who was responsible for the taste test...... FAIL

Streets have hit a dead end
Bought a box of 4 while on specials at Coles earlier this month. It had been months since I'd bought any - mainly beause they were rubbish the last time. I was gobsmacked at how watery the ice cream was.These used to be a real treat. They're now like a chocwedge. Streets , whoever has taken over the reins there has ruined this once lovely product. If it ain't broken, don't try and fix it !

Ruby raspberry..... um no! no flavour at all. terrible
stay away, terrible. can't pick the flavour at all very disappointing
Purchased in August 2020 for $3.00.
Magnums used to be my favourite treat. Not anymore! I completely agree with the other reviews. Icecream was absolutely tasteless. As others have mentioned, the icecream was awful, with a texture and taste of frozen milk or icy pole. Certainly not a luxury icecream. Worse than ice confection. Threw in the bin. Will have to find another treat. Won't be buying again. Very disappointed. Goodbye Magnum!

One star is too much!
”As another reviewer posted: The ice cream inside was shocking - it was icy and tasteless. More like an icy pole. Oh well - no more magnums for me!”
In my view, that’s exactly what it was. But let me repeat it because it is so disappointing and such a big change from the luxurious creamy ice cream it used to be-MAGNUM ICE CREAM IS ICY AND TASTELESS. Even the chocolate is tasteless. Wow.

Just bought the new ruby and raspberry magnum, big mistake, the raspberry swirl was sour and strong, the ruby chocolate was overpowered with raspberry flavour it didn't even taste like chocolate and was so thin. Ice cream was also hard. Terrible product.

Misleading packaging & product
If dying line, just die already- your product is no longer acceptable.

What’s Happened to Magnums?
I purchased a four pack of Almond Magnums which have always been my favourites. I haven’t had them for a couple of years. As soon as I opened one, I noticed there were hardly any Almonds on it. Then when I bit into it I noticed that the quality of the chocolate was very poor. The ice cream inside was shocking - it was icy and tasteless. More like an icy pole. Oh well - no more magnums for me!

Mini magnum now tastes like an icy pole. I won’t be buying any more

One star is too much
I bought a variety of magnums for my freezer the other day, when I took one to eat I was very disappointed, it was awful, the have gone the way of other confectionary, cheap and inedible, just another once loved treat that I will not purchase again, like Cadbury chocolate, why do you mess with the recipe, it doesnt pay you in the long run.
