If you love Magnum Ice Cream Bars like me, then customizing one with your favorite toppings at a Magnum Café would be the perfect sundae treat for the weekend.

It’s the to-die-for-luxury ice cream bars I’ll treat myself too whenever I pump petrol late at night after a long day. My perfect pick me up indulgence. Nothing beat eating ice cream and chocolates past midnight.

In my younger years, it was to be from the ice cream man with his peddle cart and the delicious, ‘ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling‘, that we prick our ears for. A quick grab of coins or pulling and tugging at our mothers will get us our favorites to chill on a hot afternoon.

In those days, not every household has a refrigerator. Any ice cream, icicles or ice potong was good for us kids.

HISTORY OF MAGNUM ICE CREAM

Magnum was developed in Belgium at the Ola laboratory (Baasrode) in cooperation with the Belgian chocolate producer Callebaut and released in Germany in January 1989.

The original Magnum (later rebranded as Magnum Classic) consisted of a thick bar of vanilla ice cream on a stick, with a chocolate coating.

The company also started selling Magnum ice cream cones in 1994 and an ice cream sandwich in 2002.

The first Magnum Café opened in Mid Valley, KL in 2015 which got the people all hyped on social media over the decadent velvety smooth ice cream bars covered in rich Belgian chocolate.

CUSTOMISING YOUR MAGNUM

Customising your own Magnum was a dizzying exercise in restraint.

Finally, choose the white or dark drizzle will then determine the final look of your ice cream.

What to choose? How to choose?

You’re the boss of your own ice cream; it’s your personalized ice cream so the decision is still yours.

That got a long queue of people wanting their very own customized ice cream and an even longer wait in the selection process.

Some of them include Super Goji, Recess or Fruity Loops.

Fruity Loops looks interesting and  is a classic vanilla ice cream with a coating of white chocolate with a topping of dried mango, freeze dried raspberries, chopped pistachio and dark chocolate pearls and dark chocolate drizzle
