I spaced and forgot to share this for Creative Ice Cream Day (July 1st) since this celebratory, 25th birthday Magnum bar smacks it right on the noggin in the one-of-a-kind department. Vanilla ice cream flavored with Marc de Champagne is definitely a bid to attract adult tastes, but whoa! It’s covered in a silver-colored coating?!
I’ve been looking for this ever since the tv ads started airing a couple months ago, but found it only recently at an Autogrill pit stop while on our way to Valle d’Aosta last month. Marc de Champagne is a distillate made from what’s left after pressing grapes to make bubbly. It is potent stuff. The big deal of course is the color, I mean seriously, our car is this color and it felt like I was just handed something flown in on a UFO. Alien beings aside, since we’re both appreciative of Marc de Champagne, I knew this would be great if the flavor delivered, and deliver it did, in a sophisticated way. I wish our local supermarkets stocked these – Auchan, Esselunga, Iperal and Bennet, are you listening?
