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!

What’s My Guilty Pleasure?

What’s my guilty pleasure you ask?

Something that’s fluffy, warm, and could make me fat.

I have to be careful not to eat too many.

Because they have me addicted.

Have a taste yourself, you’ll see…

Banana Nut Muffins are the culprit.

They are so delicious that it’s hard to resist.

Excuse me while I cheerfully indulge!

**This was a short fun poem about my favorite banana nut muffins! Hope you enjoyed it! 😊

Daily Prompt – Guilty

Strawberry Shortcake!

I’ve always heard of everyone loving strawberry shortcake! I didn’t really know what the difference was between a shortcake and regular cake so I did some research! 

A shortcake is normally made with flour, sugar, baking powder or soda, salt, butter, milk, or cream, and sometimes eggs. The dry ingredients are blended, then the butter is cut into mixture until the mixture resembles cornmeal. 

The liquid ingredients are mixed in just until moistened, resulting in a shortened dough. The dough is dropped in spoonfuls onto the baking sheet, rolled, and poured into a cake pan. Then it’s baked at a relatively high temperature until set. 

I’ve never had the opportunity to try strawberry shortcake until yesterday! 

My coworker switched departments and my colleague bought her a strawberry shortcake from Whole Foods as a goodbye treat. 

The cake had strawberries on the inside and was so light and airy compared to regular cake! It was sweet but not too sweet and had a bit tangy from the strawberries that were in between the layers! It was super delicious! I love sweets so I was tempted to grab another slice but I resisted the urge! Haha!

Strawberry Shortcake from Whole Foods! The name on the cake is an inside joke haha!

Have you ever had strawberry shortcake before?! 

Max Brenner – Calling All Chocolate Lovers in NYC 

I first heard about this place from my coworkers who were raving about this restaurant that is known for its chocolatey desserts! So they really persuaded me to go to this oh so famous Max Brenner Restaurant because I mean we all love a good satisfying chocolate dessert right?! (well, most of us LOL!)
My husband and I went to the city to check the place out. When we got there, it was super crowded! It was very popular. We didn’t have a reservation, so we waited for like 20-30mins before we were seated (but that was expected since it was a Saturday, in the summer, in one of the most popular cities).

They had a bar towards the front of the restaurant, 2 floors where you can be seated and enjoy your meal, and the design and style of the restaurant is pretty fun and interesting! You’re surrounded by anything and everything involving chocolate!

You can walk in and just buy chocolate desserts if you choose not to eat there. MB (Max Brenner) also has a chocolate shop where you can buy a variety of anything chocolate along with their signature cups/towers that they present your drink or sauce in at the restaurant.

At Max Brenner, there is a wide variety of chocolate treats from pastries, milkshakes, hot chocolate hug mugs, chocolate shots, waffles, crepes, cakes, cookies, ice cream, and even chocolate pizza!

One thing I found interesting that I saw that people ordered were the Chocolate Fondue Towers! You are provided with a mini grill to roast your treats and then dip into the gooey goodness of chocolate sauce! The next time I go back, I will be getting this Fondue Tower!

MB also has regular food too! Burger, fries, salmon, pasta, mac n cheese, pizza along with beer, wine, and cocktails! (This is making me hungry just writing about it! YUM!)


I ordered the Brenner Burger with waffle fries paired with a nice tall Halva Milkshake! My husband ordered some type of sandwich (I don’t remember) and a nice tall beer! The burger and fries were pretty good, but that Halva Milkshake was so delicious!!! (as you can tell by the empty cup pictured above) It was so rich with flavor but the chocolate flavor was not overpowering at all! We enjoyed our experience there and will be going back sometime soon!

When you get a chance, try stopping in to Max Brenner to enjoy a nice meal and a bunch of awesome chocolate treats!

If you’ve been there before, let me know how your experience went!
