Englewood Cliffs, NJ /PRNewswire/ - Magnum Ice Cream introduces three new product varieties, all expertly crafted with velvety ice cream and the brand's signature cracking chocolate shell: Non-Dairy Sea Salt Caramel Bars, Double Pistachio Honey Tubs and Double Almond Brown Butter Tubs.
With the new Magnum Non-Dairy Sea Salt Caramel Bars, there's now more to love for dairy-free fans. Joining Classic and Almond varieties, Magnum Non-Dairy Sea Salt Caramel Bars deliver indulgent taste with a non-dairy sea salt caramel base dipped in a cracking non-dairy chocolate shell. Certified Vegan by Vegan action, master chocolatiers source cocoa beans from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms and pair them with a deliciously creamy vanilla base made with a blend of coconut oil and pea protein, a plant-based alternative to dairy.
Magnum Ice Cream tubs, first introduced in 2018, are the first ice cream wrapped in a chocolate shell. Made with velvety ice cream, gooey sauce, and milk chocolate shards encased in chocolate, Magnum Ice Cream reimagined the signature Magnum chocolate ice cream bar in an indulgent, scoopable format. Simply squeeze the sides of the tub to break the chocolate shell and hear that signature Magnum crack. Then break into the thick, top layer of chocolate to indulge in the perfect mixture of velvety ice cream, thick milk chocolate shards, and rich sauce in every spoonful. Two flavors new for 2020, both made with Belgian Chocolate, include:
- Magnum Double Almond Brown Butter: Velvety almond ice cream with swirls of brown butter sauce and milk chocolate shards, in a cracking milk chocolate shell.
- Magnum Double Pistachio Honey: Sweet pistachio ice cream with swirls of honey and milk chocolate shards, in a cracking milk chocolate shell.
"At Magnum Ice Cream, we're obsessed with delivering a next-level bite," says Leslie Miller, Director of Marketing, Ice Cream North America. "Caramel is Magnum's most popular ice cream flavor in dairy bars and tubs, so it's exciting to bring it to market in an equally delicious Non-Dairy Bar. Our new Magnum Tubs varieties are inspired by popular 'perfect pairings' in desserts that we are thrilled to bring to ice cream."
Magnum Non-Dairy Sea Salt Caramel Bars, Magnum Double Almond Brown Butter Tubs and Magnum Double Pistachio Honey Tubs are now available at grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.49-$5.99. Check the Magnum store locator to find in a store near you.
In addition to the three new product varieties, Magnum ice cream is introducing a new cacao claim on its Classic Ice Cream Bars. To better help chocolate lovers find the best chocolate ice cream bar for them, Magnum is rolling out new packaging that indicates the cacao percentage in each product, similar to what is found on premium chocolate bars. The packaging will be rolled out this year on all Magnum Classics (three-count and six-count Dairy Bars).
