I’m always looking for fun things to do close to home and just came across something that’s been going on for a few months now.
In NYC, there are lots of fun and interesting food experiences out there. We have a bunch of excellent food halls, markets and you can dine on just about any kind of cuisine. Some of these options can even be a bit odd and/ or unique… (Kellogg’s recently opened a cereal restaurant in Times Square.)
I’ve enjoyed a Magnum Ice Cream bar many times during our travels but haven’t really seen them for sale at home.I just came across a fun thing to do in NYC involving Magnum for a limited time.
Magnum has opened a pop-up store in Soho where visitors can design their very own ice cream bar!
I didn’t see many details about the pop-up on Magnum’s site besides learning that the personalized ice cream bars can be made into over “200,000 possibilities”. We can also choose from toppings like rose petals, Himalayan sea salt, and more.
What would the price be for one of these custom Magnum Ice Cream Bars? No mention!
I did a quick google search and found out that similar pop-ups have taken place “in 30 countries from Europe to Asia”, according to amNEWYORK. The Soho store opened at the end of April and ice cream bars cost $7! Yes $7!
So would I go to Magnum NYC to make a custom bar? I think it’s worth taking Lucas one time before it ends in early August. It’s a steep price to pay for an ice cream bar but I do think it sounds like a lot of fun.
The Magnum NYC pop-up is located at 134 Prince Street. The store hours are Sunday to Wednesday: 12pm – 8pm and Thursday to Saturday: 12pm – 9pm.
Would you be interested in designing you own ice cream bar or do you feel that it isn’t worth the price?
(Since writing this post, Kim, Lucas and I visited Magnum New York. I’ll be writing an upcoming review about our experience.)
