    Classic was the same at Woolworths. Almond was the other day, but no sign up tonight. Perhaps mistake.

    Not too bad either.

    These are amazing - I'm comparing to other dairy free ice creams, because I haven't been able to eat dairy since I was a kid, but they're SO GOOD in comparison to them. Worth every penny, especially when half price! If you also can't have dairy PLEASE try these haha!

    Pretty damn tasty, the ice cream is really nice. The chocolate isn't amazing but you probably wouldn't pick it for lacking dairy.

    I love these

    Only 3 in a pack?! and lighter at 72g instead of 82g in the classic, yet almost the same RRP.

      It’s still amazing value as far as dairy free magnums go

    •  

      These companies are always looking for "creative" ways to achieve the right price/appearance. Jerks.

      At least the ice creams taste good

    These are great. Can't tell these are dairy free TBH.

    Bought some at Woolies and they taste pretty close to the original one. Only issue was that it comes 3 in a pack

    Tried some of these recently, the coating seems to have more of a dark chocolate taste to it (a matter of preference, but I like it), and internally I couldn't tell the difference between these and a normal Magnum. Very impressive.

    These are really delicious, almost indistinguishable from regular Magnums. Just as creamy inside and the chocolate has a satisfying crunch but melts in your mouth. Enjoying these as much as the Ben & Jerry's non dairy.

    I have 4 boxes of the classic dairy free sitting in my freezer. I would've bought more if I had more space. Exciting times for the plant-based community

  • +4 votes

    These are awesome for plant based ppl, but worth noting (if you're doing it for environmental reasons) that one of the varieties comes from italy, one is made in Australia. Food miles to ship frozen ice cream 8000km potentially outdo the impact of animal agriculture in this instance.

    At work but I believe it was the Cornetto version that were Australia made and the Magnums are all Italy made.

      if you're doing it for environmental reasons

      Which you haven't thought about very hard if you're shopping at Colesworths to start with …

      • +4 votes

        That's not really true at all now is it? You can shop environmentally without having to go to the bulk shop for all your food.

        Economies of scale apply here too. It is (often) more environmentally friendly to produce and distribute huge amounts of things like flour or cereal or carrots or potatoes than it is to buy at your farmers market.

        Plus, some people can't afford the markup.

      If I remember correctly animal agriculture contributes more to global CO2 emissions than all forms of travel and shipping combined.

    How do these go calories wise? About the same?

    I've eaten both plain and almond. So creamy, so yummy!

    the first ingredient is sugar.
    really prefer cream in my ice cream

    • +3 votes

      There is actually about 2% LESS sugar in the vegan ones comparing std almond minis to vegan almond which are similar size I think. Not sure. The reason Soy ice cream does not come before the sugar on the box is soy ice cream is made up of many component while with milk is made up from milk. So say milk was 55% of the ingredients, soy icecream might also be about 55% however it would be made up of x% water y% soy z%thickeners etc. So in reality the sugar content is quite similar really between the 2. One has moo in it the other has soy. Otherwise pretty similar - eat either everyday and you will get fat!

        There is no one 'sugar'. White table sugar is sucrose. Many added sugars are used in the food industry.

        The main added sugars are: sucrose; glucose (dextrose); glucose syrup; fructose; high fructose glucose syrup (HFGS) (aka high fructose corn syrup); various polymaltoses based on the maltose disaccharide (which is two joined glucoses).

        In fact, the only common nutritional sugars not usually added by food manufacturers are lactose (milk sugar) and galactose (which with a glucose molecule makes a lactose molecule).

        For example, as per under discussion (note, does not in fact state it contains any soya)

    It took me to the Coles website…..and after completing my order (for 3 x boxes), it told me that I still needed to spend $39 as there minimum order was $50.

    If that is true……then what a great gimmick !!!!

    Jabba seal of approval. I thought Ben & Jerry's did well with their non-dairy range, but that was more in a different-but-still-good way, whereas these seem very close to 'real' ice cream.

    Main disappointment is the shrunk size compared to regular Magnums.

  •  

    My wife found out about this and now we have no more space in the fridge. Not that I'm complaining…

    My lactose intolerant daughter thanks you.

      Agreed, not sure why the negs, food standards authority agrees with you. More problematic in my opinion is the difficulty in getting full fat ice cream at a non premium price point these days. Manufacturers have cost cut by replacing milk fat with sugar, then people have swallowed the low fat=healthy bs marketing hook line and sinker…

        "Dairy Free Almond ice confection" according to official description, looks like the "ice cream" description comes from Coles site

      It’s not..
