I was really sad when the first Magnum Manila Pleasure Store at SM Aura closed its doors mid last year. But here’s the good news – Magnum Manila is back by popular demand! Yay! Pleasure seekers from the South can now experience the variety of decadent flavors plus get to “Make Your Own Magnum” using 3 out of the 18 toppings available for only Php120!
Mall-goers started flocking the Magnum Manila MOA pop-up store when it opened last December 19, 2015. Located at the 2nd floor near Uniqlo and Bread Talk, though this time, the store is much smaller than the previous. You’ll see the ice cream bar, the signature icons like the Magnum M logo made of popsicle sticks, the one full of beans (or is it nuts?) and the upside-down dripping chocolates which also serve as spotlights for the mini bar and a few seats for those who want to linger and go for another round. But hey, you want the Magnum experience, heck you can eat and take pleasure while standing!
Here are the simple steps to #MakeYourOwnMagnum
18 different toppings you can choose from including my first 3 favorites – Quezo de Bola, Pistachios, Pastillas then Caramel Crunch Balls, Dried Raspberries, Dried Mangoes, White Chocolate Crunch Balls, Corn Flakes, Nerds, Potato Chips, Parmesan Popcorn, Dark Chocolate Crunch Balls, Oreo Cookies, Marshmallows, Graham Crackers and Roasted Almonds and if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you can also try the Sea Salt Flakes and Chili Flakes.
3 Dips and Drizzles to coat your Magnum ice cream Bar – White, Milk and Dark Chocolates. Better try all 3 coz it really makes a difference to taste. Finally, top it with a single chocolate “M” coin.
It should be fairly easy but I was so nervous when I made my very first, lol. I wanted it perfect but I guess, I needed more practice! and then came 2 more, lol… well, I’ve been hoarding Magnum ice cream bars whenever I do my groceries, might as well upgrade to these when time and schedule permits to visit SM MOA.
Finished products with different toppings, coatings and drizzles – Belgian chocolates I definitely enjoyed consuming, hahaha
