Ruby chocolate is neither bitter, milky nor sweet, but instead delivers a perfect balance of fresh berry fruitiness and luscious smoothness, introducing the nation to an ice cream taste experience like no other. Expertly crafted by master chocolatiers using only premium quality ingredients and responsibly sourced Ruby cocoa beans, Magnum’s unique crafting process enhances the unique pink colour tone and naturally present berry flavour, unlocking a new dimension of taste. The new range is brought to life through eye-catching, ruby- coloured packaging, featuring intricate gold foil detail.
