Magnum® celebrates 25 years of pleasure
Renowned for all things pleasurable and indulgent, MAGNUM® threw its most lavish party yet to celebrate 25 years of pleasure. With its signature pairing of chocolate and ice cream for perfect pleasure, MAGNUM indulged guests to a night of chocolate decadence and fashion highlights, including the much-anticipated announcement of the return of the MAGNUM Singapore Pleasure Store.
Largest chocolate fountain in Singapore
Renowned for using quality chocolate in each MAGNUM, the chocolate-themed party used over 260kg of MAGNUM chocolate, and broke the record for Singapore’s largest chocolate fountain1. Standing at more than 1m tall, over 100kg of chocolate flowed through the fountain to provide guests with the decadent experience of creating their own MAGNUM ice cream. Uncoated vanilla MAGNUMs were dipped into the record-breaking chocolate fountain and decorated with the guests’ choice of favourite toppings. The MAGNUM chocolate fountain will be on public display at Customs House Terrace after the event.
MAGNUM fashion show
In collaboration with 2am: dessertbar Chef/Owner, Janice Wong, and local fashion designer, Pauline Lim of PAULINE.NING, an exclusive MAGNUM chocolate jewellery collection was launched on the catwalk with PAULINE.NING’s Spring/Summer collection, as well as a MAGNUM dress, to celebrate indulgence in fashion and luxury.
“Decadence Cracked was inspired by the rich crackling chocolate crust of MAGNUM and how it resembled the first light of day illuminating the city,” said Lim. Wong’s creations were also designed to portray “MAGNUM’s style of elegance and simplicity, playing up the classic brown, white and gold notes”. Models mingled with guests throughout the night to show off selected pieces, which will be on display at the MAGNUM Singapore Pleasure Store.

“For 25 years, MAGNUM has celebrated pleasure and indulgence through the perfect combination of decadent chocolate and rich ice cream. Hosting the MAGNUM Singapore Pleasure Store again extends these celebrations in the most enjoyable way possible, living out our philosophy, a day without pleasure is a day lost”, said Moustapha Khaled, Country Director, Unilever Singapore.
