The MAGNUM Craze!!

I first saw the word "MAGNUM" in a television show wherein Anne Curtis boyfriend was said to be the endorser.  I wasn't aware that time that it is the newest product of Selecta.  The day after, it was all over the social networking sites.  Talking about its taste and they all seemed gaga for a stick of ice cream.  With all the things I read, I asked my hubby to buy one for me.

My verdict:
1.  It tasted really and good the ice cream inside is very light.  Not too sweet it is just right for my palate.
2.  The Belgian chocolate coating with almonds was a hit for me.  At first, I hesitated to taste it because I am not used to eating any kinds of nuts.  But, it proved me wrong.  It just melted in my mouth.
3.  It is quite pricey at Php50 but I can say that it is worth the price.
4.  The only downside for me was that.....It was very addicting!!!!  After I finished it I wanted MORE!!!

A Taste of "Mango Brutus"

Summer is once again here and it is fast approaching. Done with the days that we experience having a hard time getting up in the morning because of the cold weather. As early as 5 in the morning, I am perspiring and wants to take a cold shower. So what more can you expect when the clock ticks at 12 noon?

Waaahhhhh!!!! The heat is making all of us crazy! Some of us take a bath, sip on a very cold soda or water while others, stay on their air conditioned room. But, for my family nothing beats to a tasty, cool fruit shake.  Since mangoes are in season it is our lead star.


This has brought a lot of old memories when we were little.  The times when our parents, friends or relatives treat us an order of the  tastiest mango shake  that only Mango Brutus can give.  Every sip of it made me smile and reminisce my childhood days.  It is just so sad that a product as good as that didn't make it.  My hubby and I even outdo one another in reliving our own experience.  It was so fun because by simply making a fruit shake we were once again a child.  We laughed, giggled and even argued like 5 years old.  Hmmm.....It was just so FUN! :-)

Have you tried Mango Brutus when you are little? Share it with me :-)
