Magnum Ruby Launches in Singapore

Two of the dessert world’s greatest inventions − ruby chocolate and ice-cream − meld in one velvety bar with Magnum Ruby. Berry-fresh and naturally pretty in pink, Swiss cocoa producer Barry Callebaut’s ruby chocolate has been taking chocoholics by storm since last year. The new Magnum Ruby features a gorgeous shell of ruby chocolate; bite into it, and let the luscious filling of white chocolate ice-cream and raspberry swirls melt on your tongue. Since one won’t be enough, a minipack of six retails at S$10.90, while the impulse size is priced at S$3.90.

Magnum Ruby is available from 1 April 2020 at major supermarkets across Singapore, as well as on RedMart and foodpanda Singapore.
