Create An Ice Cream Bar As Fancy As You Are At The Magnum NYC Pop Up Store

Magnum NYC Pop Up Store Review

One of my favorite parts of living in NYC is the seemingly endless stream of pop up shops. Especially in the summer months when ice cream is involved. I missed the seasonal ice cream pop ups last year. But made it my business to visit them this Summer. I already made my way to the Museum of Ice Cream Pint Shop. This time around I went to the Magnum NYC Pop Up Store to create my own personalized ice cream bar.

The Magnum NYC pop up store is so cozy and cute. There was no line when I visited on a Tuesday evening. But the velvet ropes outside is an indication of how crazy the line can be at times.

I walked in, paid 8 bucks for my ice cream and headed to the bar to pick my toppings.

The set up is similar to Chipotle or Dig Inn. All of the toppings are visible and you let your server know which ones you would like. You can choose up to three from about eighteen.

I started with a vanilla ice cream base dipped in dark chocolate. For my toppings I chose edible rose petals, dried cherries and dark chocolate pearls. I wanted gold flakes but they weren’t an option this year. Anyway, I finished off my custom ice cream bar with a drizzle of white chocolate. The finished masterpiece was almost too pretty to eat. But I demolished it after taking obligatory photos. I think I’m fittin’ to go back and make another as it was delicious.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
