Stuff your bombe Alaska, fancy foreign foods - I am reminding myself just how awesome this stuff is original.gif

Also it's my birthday soon, who wants to have ice cream and ice magic with me? I shall be 8. There may or may not be another number in front of that.

No no no, in this house the best thing to happen to ice cream is a generous sprinkling of milo!!

Ice magic with malt sprinkled on top (although Milo works too!)

Particularly now there are a number of different flavours original.gif
I have a tip for Ice Magic lovers and that is to leave a tub of icecream out of the freezer long enough to make it 'soft serve' consistancy and then stir in Ice Magic...the more flavours the better (chocolate, caramel and white chocolate is the bomb) then put it back into the freezer for a couple of hours before serving again.
Simply awesome.

Omg!!! Must try

I love it so much. When I can't get any more to squeeze out of the bottle, I cut it in half and eat it out of there! Such a pig

Yes, my local IGA stocks it! Unfortunately they've just been bought out by woolies so it may vanish.

Ice magic is pretty good but Sherbet is the best thing ever ever ever to whack on your ice cream

mmmmm

My high school home economics teacher told me Ice Magic contains a carcinogenic ingredient. I haven't eaten it since.

Yes but wait till it separates and you see the gunk that comes out first, it turned us of for life, we used to eat it all the time sad.gif

Mmmmm..... I am craving ice magic now (I use half a bottle per bowl of ice cream so it doesn't last long in my house ph34r.gif )
Ice magic is chocolate that comes out liquid but hardens on contact with the ice cream.

Nah, chopped up chocolate bars are the best topping in my humble opinion. Or crumbled Oreos. Or blackberry sauce..

Desperate craving for ice cream now, thanks a lot!

Carcinogen schmarcinogen. Your home ec teacher was a killjoy.

Yes, it may well be the greatest gift to adorn a bowl of ice cream.

Plain ol' honey is also a gift.  It is runny, then chills firm, then melts again in your mouth. Mmmm.

I have done this on multiple occasions.

I may have also on occasion filled up a large desert spoon with ice magic, precariously balanced it in the freezer and coming back about 10-15 mins later to enjoy..... ph34r.gif

I have vanilla ice cream with chocolate ice magic at least twice a week, and have for as long as I can remember.

It's only carcinogenic if you stub your ciggie out in it first.

Forget ice magic.  Home made butterscotch sauce.

Actually forget the ice-cream, just give me the sauce.

Hot chocolate sauce will do.

Life is a carcinogen...Surely you would have to eat a lot to get cancer from it?

Wish people wouldn't start threads like this, as tomorrow, now i have been reminded of ice magic, i will HAVE to go to the shop to buy some.

Haven't tried any other flavours other than original, and it really brings me back to happy times.
the little hard reservoirs that collect beneath the ice-cream that you stumble upon just when you think it's all over.

must stop reading these threads.
