Kareena Kapoor is a chocolate girl

Magnum Pleasure Ambassador Kareena Kapoor Khan launches Magnum Brownie 1“I am still to see someone who doesn’t like ice-creams and brownies,” said Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor at the launch of Magnum ice-cream brownie variant. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan star spoke of how she would gobble up multiple ice-creams after school. This didn’t go down well with her mother the yesteryear’s actress Babita. The ice-cream fixations stayed on all these years and the actress indulges in them every once in a while. She confessed to having downed two ice-creams just before the launch! “If it’s a cheat day it’s definitely chocolate icecream. Now even Saif is addicted to them and blames me for his weight gain,” she revealed.  And what does she like most about the new variant? “The crackling sound when you bite into the chocolate crust before reaching the brownie. I just love it.” Yes the new Magnum brownie has a Belgian Chocolate coating so thick that it creates a distinctive crack when you bite into it. According to Kareena her Ki and Ka co-star Arjun Kapoor is the dishiest chocolate brownie in Bollywood.

Magnum Pleasure Ambassador Kareena Kapoor Khan launches Magnum Brownie 2Magnum Brownie marries two all time favourite desserts – chocolate and brownie. It’s definitely a match made in gastronomic heaven! The new variant also comes in Magnum’s brand new packaging, with a bolder more distinct “M” logo and the famous Belgian chocolate crack.

A Box of Happiness – Mad Over Donuts

Your Heart's Desire by Mad Over Donuts

A box of fried yeasty sugar bombs – Donuts can brighten up any day. Especially when they are stuffed with gooey chocolate or sprinkled with dark chocolate shavings!

And though I am partial to plain donuts tossed in sugar, Mad Over Donuts’ (MOD) heart shaped donuts are really charming. I especially loved the pink ones filled with strawberry custard and dipped in white chocolate with pretty pink and white sprinkles. The donut with dark chocolate ganache and generously topped with chocolate shavings will resonate with the chocoholics.

But the best donut was undoubtedly – Hot Pink Love. The donut comes covered in strawberry compote with vanilla butter cream. Messy but yummy. Priced at Rs 59 the spongy donuts are somewhere between airy and cakey.
For Valentine’s Day you could even craft your donuts with a personalised message. I like that.

I suspect MOD is on a mission to make beautiful people just a little bit fatter. And going by rush at their outlets that mission is well on its way to being accomplished.
