Magnum Gold Pursuit

As Good As Gold

My first love affair with Magnum began in primary school, when Magnum ice-cream was introduced as the luxury dessert of all time. Well, it was true. Compared to the daily dose of 10 cents ice-cream or even Cornetto came close, but nothing was comparable to Magnum

Of course, back then, I had to cut down on spending during school break and save a little for more than a week to be able to afford one. Yes, back then, I didn’t have that privilege like most kids do now. Although, I’d be lying if I said that my forever adorable dad didn’t buy us any. Honestly, my dad has always been the kind of dad that buys stuff for his kids. Even now that we’re no longer kids, my dad still buys us stuff. So, if my daily saving was not enough to buy Magnum, well, there was Dad! Haha!

Friends know me more as a chocolate person, not quite the ice-cream one. However, with Magnum (my personal favourite is the almond!), I always make an exception. Besides, how could anyone say ‘no’ to the rich, chocolatey taste? 

I was so busy recently that I didn’t get to attend the Magnum event at Sunway, so thank God for the press release. Just to have a touch of Magnum here and there on The Miss Paris Diaries. Exclusive visit to the Magnum Cafe is in order, perhaps? Keep your fingers crossed!

So, let’s enjoy “The Greatest Heist in History” video first.

First there was The Greatest Heist in History”where Magnum a purveyor of chocolate expertise and a luxury lifestyleintroduced the Malaysian Pleasure Seekers to Magnum Gold – The world’s first golden ice cream – A luxurious soft vanilla ice cream with sea–salt caramel sauce covered in Belgian Chocolate and double coated with Gold Belgian Chocolate.

Magnum Gold’s limited edition positioning was completed in true Hollywood style. A total blockbuster experience which was epitomised by the appearance of an international movie actress Caroline Correa launching the Magnum Gold ice cream, stunningly draped in a 24-carat Magnum Gold couture retailed at USD 1.3mil earlier this year.

The 20 finalists were put through 3 stages of individual mind and physical game challenges against time. The challenge was crafted in line with “The Greatest Heist in History” concept where the ultimate challenge for them is to break into the Magnum Gold Vault to win the grand prize at the final stage. The first stage required them to solve a blue print puzzle leading to a secret code enabling them to unlock a door to pass through to the 2nd stage. Only 10 finalists made it to the 2nd stage and each of them were introduced to the media and guests before proceeding to their challenge.

Members of the media and guests were given the opportunity to experience the high adrenaline rush of “The Greatest Heist in History” final two stages through a live feed during the event. The second stage put them in booby-trapped compound where they were required to deactivate the bomb. In order to do so each finalist needed to take the bomb with them from the start going through three obstacles and detonating the bomb at the finish line.
3 finalists made it through to the final stage of breaking the code to enter the Magnum Golden Vault and win a gift of gold.  The chase came to a close as one of the finalists managed to decode the Magnum Golden Vault and there in the corner of the main ballroom stage was the grand prize a BMW 3 series. Mr Herry Budiazahari presented the grand prize winner with the key to the car and the other finalists with a consolation prize of 2gm Magnum Gold Coins of 99.9% gold purity.
