Magnum Gold WrapperMagnum, the luxurious Belgian chocolate ice cream bar has gained a huge following in the Philippines over the past two years. As a brand, it has added countless moments of personal indulgence and spectacles, events, and activations worth talking about. Now, to kick off 2014 with a bang, Magnum once again has big news for its loyal pleasure seekers – the arrival of Magnum Gold in the Philippines!

This year, Magnum lovers will be regaled with a Magnum Gold experience like never before. First and foremost, they will experience a new level of indulgence with  the luscious blend of silky vanilla ice cream and sea salt caramel, coated with thick cracking golden Belgian chocolate. It is the first ever double dipped Magnum bar wherein the the ice cream bar is first coated with a layer of Belgian milk chocolate and dipped again in a layer of golden coloured white chocolate!

Then, to push things further, for the first time ever, Magnum has tied up with Hollywood greats such as acclaimed director Bryan Singer (who is about to release the much awaited second installment of the XMen franchise this 2014), Oscar winner Benicio del Torro (about to come out as The Collector in The Guardians of the Galaxy, the second installment of the Avengers franchise), and Brazilian supermodel and actress Caroline Correa to create a golden cinematic trailer to launch the newest flavor, Magnum Gold.

Inspired by this cinematic feat, Magnum Philippines spun its own story of action and suspense. Last February 5, motorists weaving their way around the heavily congested Makati area may have caught a glimpse of a massive golden vault, marked only by the letter ‘M,’ being escorted through traffic, casting an air of mystery and anticipation. This 7×7 foot-large vault of shining gold was hauled from the RCBC Tower on Ayala Avenue to the Fort Bonifacio Activity Center, guarded by an entourage of BMWs ensuring its safe arrival. Once at the Fort, the golden vault was held under maximum security and will continue to be guarded until its unveiling on February 9.

From Dangwa to Drugstores: A Safe Valentine’s for Everyone

Whether your status is single, in a relationship, or that dreaded it’s complicated, the heart of months can be dangerous territory, especially mid-month. One wrong move can make you a member of the lonely hearts’ club, or even worse – facing the life-long consequences of one night of unprotected pleasure.
Which is why DKT Reproductive Health Inc., makers of Trust and Frenzy condoms, set up shop at the iconic flower market of Manila, Dangwa, to distribute condoms to both men and yes, women rushing to buy affordable bouquets for their significant other.
The yearly activity is part of the company’s thrust to not only give people information about their reproductive health choices, but to also provide accessible and affordable products that not only keep users safe and secure, but also their loved ones.
Aside from Dangwa, various DKT products are available at drugstores, convenience stores and partner health centers nationwide.
About DKT Philippines
DKT Philippines is the leading provider of reproductive health and family planning products in the Philippines, including condom brands Trust, Frenzy, Lick, and Premiere, as well as Trust Pill, the market leader of oral contraceptive pills under its “Filipinay” campaign.
