After enjoying a spicy meal for lunch, all Stomper Joshua wanted was to cool down with a Magnum ice cream bar.

But when he tore open the ice cream wrapper and got ready to dig in, he was shocked to see only half a Magnum inside.

He told Stomp that the incident, which happened on Nov 16 at 3pm, caused him to have a meltdown (no pun intended).

"My lunch was spicy, so I was ready to eat my Magnum ice cream for dessert. I switched on my Netflix, took my ice cream and was ready to eat it. But I realised that the ice cream felt very light," Joshua recounted.

"To my horror, I was actually holding half an ice cream bar! I had a full meltdown. I took an Instagram Story of my Magnum and got angry for a while.

"Then, I realised that the ice cream was melting and that I liked Magnum. Half a magnum is still a magnum what, even though it is a Magnum mini that I didn’t ask for. So I just ate it."

Joshua added that he managed to eat a proper Magnum the next day -- a full ice cream bar this time.

"My mother bought me another Magnum the next day on Nov 17. It was in the fridge and guess what, it was a full piece this time!" Joshua said.

"I didn’t take a photo of my new Magnum because I was just too excited to 'nomzz' on it. It was in my belly in an instant."

In response to a Stomp query, a spokesman for Magnum Singapore said: "Magnum stays true to pleasure with the highest quality ingredients and expert craftsmanship, and we want to assure Pleasure Seekers that quality is of utmost importance to us.
