Love Magnum Ice Cream don't you? Oh my! Oh la la!
There's this crazy fad in the Philippines about Magnum ice cream and its insane. It's really amazing how social media can make or break a product in the Philippines. The past month, our Facebook timeline has been flooded with photos of Magnum, a lot of our friends love Magnum and a lot really don't understand the what's the craze is all about.
For a pregnant woman, it is a torture. I really don't know what it tastes like but the pregnant hormone curiosity wanted it so bad. Okay, this might not be that pregnancy hormone but that deep rooted attitude common amongst a pure FIlipino like me. That attitude? "It's-a-high-end-brand-and-is-expensive-and-if-I-buy-it-and-like-it-then-I-must-be-a-cool-person!" attitude. Well, maybe not all think like that, but I definitely think like that SOMETIMES. As I've said, it's deep rooted. I maybe saw it among my peers or from watching too much TV advertising high end products and thinking these people who can afford them are way too cool. But then again, maybe it's just me.

Back to the Magnum Ice Cream, luckily, my sister and brother knew where to buy Magnum ice cream in Doha. And it was so expensive. If Filipinos were complaining that it was extremely expensive at fifty pesos, they would have a change of mind if they see the price here at QR14.50 roughly, 3.50USD or roughly 170 pesos. Crazy!
Did we like it? It's ice cream, who wouldn't like it, especially on hot days? Is it worth the hype and the price? We do NOT think so. It's back to snickers ice cream for us. We're not really that cool people anyway and we knew it and love it.
Hoops, thank you to Tito Boy and Tita Ayish for sponsoring the ice cream. We wouldn't have bought it at that crazy price. Ha!
