Magnum Ice Cream Shop in NYC! Ice Cream Lovers This One Is For You!!!

My sister came in town and has been wanting to go to this ice cream shop for the longest time! So we finally get the chance to give it a try!

This ice cream shop allows you to personalize your own ice cream bar!

You have a choice of 3 toppings and can also select a white, milk, or dark chocolate drizzle.

The toppings I chose were salted caramel pearls, chopped almonds, and ginger sugar.

My sister’s toppings were white sugar pearls, peanut butter chocolate chips, and salted caramel pearls.

It was fun to see them prepare it in front of you! My mouth was watering just watching them make it haha!

The staff were very friendly and helpful, making my experience even better!

They have a station that has a pretty cool background to take a picture of your freshly made ice cream bar!

There is also some seating available if you want to hang out and enjoy your delicious treat!

My ice cream bar was very savory and creamy! The ginger sugar added a nice sweet but slight spice to it which was very pleasant!

The yummy bars are super affordable too, only costs $8!

So if you are ever in Lower Manhattan, stop by Magnum Ice Cream and get your personalized ice cream bar!

Bacon and Peanut Butter?! Weird Food Combinations That Are Delicious! 

1. Avocado and Chocolate

2. Strawberry and Tomato

3. Dark Chocolate and Parmesan Cheese

4. Oranges and Olives

5. Yogurt and Eggs

6. Bacon and Peanut Butter 

7. Olive Oil and Ice Cream

Out of crazy weird combos, I would try out the bacon and peanut butter since I’m a fan of both. It’ll probably have a sweet and salty taste to it! 

Avocado and chocolate sound interesting! They’re both soft and have a creamy taste so this could work.

The only combo that I’m a little thrown off by is the orange and olives! Olives have such a tangy taste and firmer texture. Oranges are a have a slight tang but are still sweet so I’m not sure how these two items would taste together. 

So what do you guys think of these food pairings?! 

Have you guys had any of the food combos before? 

I’d be interested to hear about your experience!
