I’ve been wanting to visit the Magnum Pleasure Shop (yes, it’s their name!) for a while now. Today, I finally found some time to go visit it! When I first got there, it was 9:10pm. I was inside and still waiting at 10pm! It was an hour wait to get inside to get a taste of wonderful ice cream in 35 degree weather! Haha, I must have led you on with the title 😉 Kidding!
Magnum opened a pop up shop on Bloor and Yonge. They will be opened for roughly one month (I vaguely recall reading somewhere that they close on July 28, 2013!) to promote their ice cream. The exterior and interior of the shop is very polished. They have fancy jeweled magnum ice cream displays as well!
Taking a peak of the inside…
Now that you’ve had a sneak peak of the exterior and interior (forgive my phone pictures, they’re not very clear!), let’s talk about the long process!
1) You wait in line
2) They give you a menu of the ice cream flavours and toppings you get to choose
3) You choose your ice cream flavour (Vanilla or Chocolate)
4) You choose your wanted toppings from a selection of 21! No limit to what you want. They had everything. Even goji berries. Yes, I decided to get goji berries!
5) You pay and enjoy your delicious custom made magnum ice cream!
NOTE: Ask for the “Golden Touch” !!! They sprinkle edible golden flakes (kind of like the golden flakes in goldschlager) on top of your creation and if you’re a girl (guy’s bring your girlfriends!) they’ll give you a Magnum branded golden nail polish! Apparently the nail polish is made with real gold! WIN!
The wait was definitely worth the ice cream and experience! If you haven’t already gone to the Magnum Pleasure Shop, you better get your butt there tomorrow! Don’t miss your chance! And guys, I definitely recommend you bring your girlfriends and have them ask for the “Golden Touch”!!! They’re going to love youuu!
