The Ten-Year Celebration Kicks-Off with a New Look and New Products.
/PRNewswire/ — Magnum® ice cream, the chocolatier of ice cream, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in the U.S. in 2021. To recognize this milestone, Magnum ice cream is introducing an updated look, new products, and celebrating with the help of brand friends, like former Magnum ice cream spokesperson Rachel Bilson. Rachel helped launched the brand in the U.S. with a now iconic campaign that features her leaping over standstill traffic for a refreshing Magnum ice cream bar.
Rachel will be joined by brand partner, Rebecca Minkoff, and fellow chocolate lovers, Alli Webb and Kéla Walker, among others, who will take to Instagram to highlight the brand’s 10-year anniversary by sharing how they celebrate life’s moments with Magnum ice cream.
“We’re excited to celebrate 10 momentous years of Magnum ice cream as a leading ice cream brand in the U.S. From launching the first and only double dipped ice cream bar in the U.S. to our fan-favorite Magnum Pop-Up Bars, celebration, self-expression, and indulgence are key tenets to every Magnum ice cream experience,” says Russel Lilly, Vice President of U.S. Ice Cream at Unilever. “We look forward to celebrating our anniversary with a refreshed look, an indulgent new truffle-inspired ice cream bar line, as well as a fun moment for brand friends and fans to get involved and share their favorite moments enjoying ice cream.”
Since bringing its signature cracking chocolate to the U.S. in 2011, Magnum ice cream has evolved its decadent offerings into 28 delicious flavors across bars, tubs, and even MINIs, all now available with a brand-new look.
