I’m back! After a long hiatus I finally have the time to get back to Macarons & Bubbly, and man have I missed working on this blog! Got many fun posts lined up to make up for all the time passed without any updates, although there have been mini updates on my instagram account: macaronsbubbly!
Thus what better way to start off than with a post about ice cream, since of course summer and there’s a heat wave lately across Europe and London! And this is not just any ice cream, this is a custom made Magnum!
This summer, until August 30th, Selfridges has turned their Wonder Room on the ground floor next to the jewelry department into the ‘Make my Magnum experience.’ (So only a couple weeks left!) It’s been created in order to celebrate Magnum’s 25th birthday. However it is a fun thing to do when you are out and about, and who doesn’t like ice creams dipped in chocolate covered with different toppings.
I’ve been twice already because I love the novelty of designing my own magnum to my tastes. And lets just say, they are finger licking good!!
You can choose to have vanilla or chocolate ice cream, and then choose between milk, white or dark chocolate coating, and then you choose 3 toppings out of a choice of 21. And finally it’s finished off with a drizzle from the chocolate of your choice.
The first time around I had vanilla ice cream, white chocolate coating topped with coconut, white chocolate sprinkles and hazelnuts, drizzled with dark chocolate. The second time I had vanilla ice cream and white chocolate again, with gold flakes, coconut and hazelnuts, drizzled with milk chocolate. I think it’s pretty obvious which flavors I prefer!
So here are the pictures from the experience at Selfridges and all I can say is that I highly recommend giving it a visit!
