Magnum Infinity Chocolate & Raspberry Ice Cream Bar

[New for 2014] Of all the Magnum flavors floating around the planet (and there are quite a few of them), the U.S. got three new Infinity bars. The dry Chocolate bar, the target exclusive Chocolate & Caramel bar, and this guy I picked up from Walmart.

It's so hard to photograph this guy, but I finally got it!

First bite: Mmm, so much darkness.
Second bite: Ahhh, there's a hint of raspberry.
Third bite: Whoa, there's a ton of tart raspberry in here! 

See the big thick veins of raspberry sauce to the left?

So it's quality components all around, I've gotten my dark chocolate fix, and the raspberry kept it from getting too dry this time around.... but yet, I still don't love this treat. It doesn't have that fun factor you know that I look for in a bar. I just don't understand the sharp nibs, they prevent you from really being able to savoring the shell. No fun shell, no fun factor.

Maybe dark chocolate just isn't that fun... maybe it's too mature for that... yeah, that's it.

Verdict?  Less Dry
Buy Again?  meh

My fav combo is chocolate and raspberry - I can't wait to find this in stores!

I found these last night (and on sale, too!). I thought they were very good. Dark chocolate and raspberry is one of my favorite flavor combos, so it had that going for it from the start.

However, I agree with you about the nibs. Not necessary, and detracted from the nice dark shell.
