[Review] Magnum Gold?!

Is Magnum Gold?! as good as gold?

Magnum Gold?! (Yep that is the proper noun: Magnum Gold with a double punctuation) is the latest offering from the existing Magnum Ice Cream Flavors available in the Philippines. It was launched just this February 2014. 

The new Magnum Gold?! PhP55.00 in SM Supermarket

The color scheme of the packaging matches the Royal theme, and I do like the Steampunk inspired logo which is very well done. It reminds you of the golden opulence that is associated with royals.

The description officially says: 


"Vanilla flavoured ice cream with seasalt caramel sauce coated with golden coloured chocolate"

The ice cream bar is covered with gold-colored chocolate, and underneath is another layer of brown Belgian chocolate. It does not glitter like gold, but it will do.

First bite? It was... okay. It's not bad. It also reminded me of a familiar flavor. It was your ordinary ice cream. The seasalt caramel sauce is a rare feature, though. There's not a lot of ice cream with it. However, it only gave a hint to the overall flavor, unlike the Salted Caramel Sundae in McDonald's were the salty sweetness was more prominent. By the way, the swirl effect is nice to look at. 

The swirls of Magnum Gold?!
To be fair, I was not able to fully appreciate Magnum Gold?! because it has a vanilla core. I do have a sweet tooth, and I really do love sweets. However, this Magnum flavor just fell short on the sweetness part. And the familiar flavor I was talking about? It tasted like Toblerone White Chocolate. I guess the coating is white chocolate covered in yellow. 

Hmmm... I might have expected a lot from this product, only to end up being disappointed. Overly hyped products usually tell more than what they really are. They raise your expectations but rarely do they deliver. 

My favorite Magnum flavor so far is Chocolate Truffle, and if you ask me... it feels closer to the taste of opulent gold. It is so heavenly! And If you desire a truly royal taste, then Chocolate Truffle would fit that role much better than Magnum Gold?!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
