So a few weeks back I attended the Magnum media launch, for the two new flavours, Pomegranate Pink and Espresso Black. I tagged along with my blogger bud Yumna (obvs) as these events tend to get abit awks if you don't have a partner in crime to steak out with. On arrival, we were showered with non alcoholic cocktails and got mingling straight away. The event was like no other I've attended. Pink and Black flowed throughout the amazing Shimmy Beach Club near the V&A waterfront and I was so excited to finally meet some of the bloggers I usually chat to over social networks, as well as mingle with the local celebs who were also in attendance. Since there were complimentary Ice-creams for all, I tried the new Magnum Espresso Black and man was it the best I've ever had. The strong espresso taste lived up to its name and the reason why I opted for this flavour is because I'm not the biggest fruity fan around.
Whilst enjoying the desserts, we got to watch a cook-off between two culinary schools, whose teams were lead by 5 fm's Gareth Cliff as well as funny personality, Trevor Gumbi.
There was also a mini twitter auction that took place where guests could tweet as much about the event and the new flavours for about 15 minutes and could win some awesome goodies. Since most of you may have read everyone's posts on this event already, I will say very little and let the pictures tell you a 1000 words.
The official Auction takes place in Sandton on the 23 November 2013 so click HERE for all the details as to how you could get involved and win with Magnum.
