Magnum 5 Kisses Limited Edition Ice Cream

Magnum 5 Kisses

I love how Magnum regularly has a series of very creative limited editions with a theme. I first wrote about it in the *first month* I started blogging – April 2002. I was in Melbourne, Australia and the 7 Deadly Sins just came out, with a flavor for every sin. There was also a wonderful 9-ice cream series called The Sixties Nine that came out the next year and I reviewed every single one!

Magnum No3 Passionate Kiss

We were in Paris, France earlier this year when we spotted the new limited edition 5 Kisses series. There are five (5) different Magnum ice creams in total and we got some to eat. The Magnum 5 Kisses is a range inspired by French Patisserie flavors and it came to Australia recently (although we ate ours in France).

5 Kisses Magnum

Magnum No. 4 Flirty Kiss Gateau Au Chocolat is the full-on chocolate flavored one. It’s a chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce and chocolate brownie pieces, all coated with a layer of crackling milk chocolate. Each of the Magnum 5 Kisses retails for €4.19 at the local Monop’ which isn’t very cheap when converted – almost RM 18 per Magnum!

Magnum Passionate Kiss Tiramisu

However, some of them are very good. We liked Magnum No. 3 Passionate Kiss Tiramisu – it had a distinctively authentic taste, with mascarpone flavored ice cream (!!!), coffee sauce, chocolate chunks and sponge pieces, all coated with a layer of crackling milk chocolate.

Magnum Tiramisu

Both of us thought it was awesome! The boxes that contains the Magnum 5 Kisses are made well, with sturdy cardboard and a perfect ice cream inside. The construction of the Magnums are spot on too – every single element can be seen and tasted!

Magnum Kiss Tarte Aux Pommes

The best in the series though would be the last one – Magnum No. 5 Stolen Kiss Tarte Aux Pommes. This is made with a vanilla ice cream interior, apple sauce and pastry pieces, all coated with a layer of crackling white chocolate dusted with cinnamon.

Magnum Stolen Kiss

It’s the only one of the 5 Kisses that has a white chocolate exterior and it tastes exactly like an apple pie!

Keeping with the theme, here’s a happy one of us at The Louvre, one of the most iconic places in Paris! :)

  1. I love Magnum! Anytime better than those “branded” ones, and much cheaper too. I don;t think these are available here – I am sure I would love those special flavours.

    • Yeah, I don’t think Malaysia has any limited editions!

      It’s a shame since it really makes people interested in the ice cream. It would be a nice change to have collectible special flavors for limited editions – once I collected 7 different sticks and sent it in for a free t-shirt (7 Deadly Sins promo).

      Magnum used to be THE branded ice cream back in the days though, and the most expensive one to boot! :)

      We just have too many other imports now.

  2. Good Morning Kissing Fish HB! This is interesting but expensive ice cream! I wonder whether these series would be sold in our conservative country? I love ice cream and eat them every week.

    • Hmm…I don’t think it’s the name that will make it unavailable in Malaysia! :)

      (although with the politics now, you never know)

      It’s just that Magnum in Malaysia doesn’t do any limited editions that’s in Europe and Australia.

  3. I like Magnum.. I’ve tried all kinds, of course the ones available here, not the overseas one la.. I don’t really like Magnum Gold though, taste like eating sugar caramel crunch, which is too sweet and “jelak”..

    • I love Magnum Gold! :)

      I think it depends on whether you like salted caramel. My better half doesn’t like Magnum Gold either but I love it.

      She doesn’t like salted caramel, but I love salted caramel. Thus, I think if a person likes salted caramel, there’s a good chance they’ll like Magnum Gold.

    • Yeah, it’s the limited editions in France! :)

      It has gone to other European countries and Australia too but we never get limited editions here.

    • Yeah, it was delicious! :)

      That’s why I love Australia so much, they get a lot of limited editions and I heard Melbourne is one of the test beds for new products so something will come out as “limited edition” and later on be a full fledged product line if it does well.

    • Well, it won’t seem expensive when you’re in France! :)

      It’s just 4.19 Euros but I converted since I’m back. It’s never a good thing to convert when you’re on vacation in a stronger currency country, everything will seem too expensive.

      Our 2-Michelin star meal in Paris cost us over RM 1,000 but it was sooo worth it!

    • Thanks Sophie! :)

      Yeah, I loved the Magnum limited editions – ate my way though the 7 Deadly Sins (and got the t-shirt to prove it too!) when I was in Melbourne, and hunted down The Sixties Nine (there was one ice cream that was so difficult to find coz it was very popular – Clockwork Orange, finally found it in a gas station, of all places).

      • Gas stations always have such random food. I guess they just buy whatever’s in stock because people aren’t so pick when they’re busy getting somewhere.

        You need more than a t-shirt I reckon, achievement badges seem appropriate :)

        • True that! :)

          I’ve also noticed that about gas stations. I believe the problem with the Clockwork Orange was that EVERYONE loved that flavor, there was no Twitter or Facebook back then but we had a uni instant messaging system and BBS and there was a thread about the Sixties Nine.

          Each time someone spotted the Clockwork Orange in Coles or Bi-Lo, it was gone when another person went, that’s how fast they sold out. I think the gas station find was from no-one actually thinking it’ll be there – they had it, and quite a lot too, so I’m glad I popped in to check.

          Haha! Unfortunately, they weren’t giving out achievement badges, I had to mail in every single one of the 7 sticks and about AUD 10 and they mailed me back a 7 Deadly Sins t-shirt!
