Magnum Manila Part 1: Make Your Own Magnum

Magnum Manila: Make Your Own Magnum
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Without batting an eyelash I'd scream for ice cream! My closest friends and family know how much I adore this sweet treat that I'd gobble it up even if the rain beckons. I don't mind the cold. It's the fireworks of flavors I'm after. As crazy as that sounds, it's a true story so it wouldn't sound silly anymore if I told you that I enjoyed Magnum Manila twice in one day. Or is it?

Magnum Manila: Make Your Own Magnum
During my trip to Manila, I scheduled a little reunion with the friends I met at Camille Co's birthday dinner last year. Sadly not all of them could make it since some were from the Luzon provinces while others already had plans with their families. Kay and Kylie made it though so we had a sumptuous lunch at Banapple. Loads of chitchats and 'chikahan' later they told me that SM Aura was only a building away and invited me to try making my own Magnum! Of course I said yes. I'd be bonkers if I didn't.

The restaurant was packed when we got there and a line that never seemed to die away was present. I was pretty impressed though because even if customers continued to flock the place, service was really fast and the staff were all in smiles. It must be the ice cream.

To make your own Magnum you'd have to pick three toppings (see choices here), an ice cream flavor (vanilla or chocolate), a dip and drizzles (white, dark or milk chocolate).

It took us a while before we got to decide which toppings to pick. The struggle was real! In the end I went for crushed Oreos, gold nuggets and roasted almonds. If you are a little adventurous they have spicy chicharon too!

For a finishing touch, an edible Magnum insignia accompanies every ice cream made. Oh dear. I want to try this all over again! Oh Magnum Bar when will you come to Cebu?

Of course, a #Magnum photo was necessary. That is Kylie's Magnum on the left, Kay's in the middle and mine on the right. It was so good that we ate our ice cream without a word said to each other. There was simply no time for talking. Full attention had to be given to the delicious wonder before us. We felt like kids all over again. After gobbling the sweetness up, we had a full bout of giggles. How could we not? I cannot explain the happiness that ice cream brings. It's euphoric.

Looks so delish, I love that you can add your own flavors! The portion looks pretty small too, so this is good, i can see you eating it twice a day!

I love ice cream, too, and will eat it year round, but not in the rain!

Then I opt for Reese cups! ( a food group!)

Aaaahhhh!!!! When is this coming to Cebu? :( I hear they're only there in Manila for a short time as well. So sad. I badly want to try this as I am a huge fan of ice creams, too! Chocolates in particular. This gives me a mouthwatering craving. :(

They are and I want another round go at them to be honest. :)

Anne said...

Thanks Tanya!

Anne said...

I seriously don't know but I hope they'd come to Cebu soon. Oh I totally forgot about their status as a popup store! I hope that they'd stay for good given the huge demand. People were lining up and the reservation list was pretty long. That didn't stop everyone from getting their ice cream fix though. Haha.

Anne said...

They do Reymara. Thank you!

Anne said...

Yummy indeed!

Anne said...

Ako man pud. Haha.

I don't think i've ever had a magnum. Not even sure if America has that here lol

Thank you!

Anne said...

I'm not sure if there's a restaurant out there. The one here is only a year or so old.

CalicoGeek said...

I will definitely do some Google searches! there might be one in like California or something!

Nikita Palei said...

Washi tape put to good use!! ;) I will try few of them. It makes ordinary articles look extraordinary. Nice post, Anne!! :)

nikitapalei.blogspot.in

Anne said...

Yay! After trying the notebooks, push pins and pencils, I got so hooked with washi tapes. I want a collection if only budget permits. Haha!

Nikita Palei said...

Ice cream is one thing I could eat all year round, no matter what the season is!! :P Yummy post,Anne!! :)

nikitapalei.blogpost.in

Anne said...

Me too! Thanks Nikita.

Tryin2Girl said...

Love this! I especially like the paperclip ones. So functional and useful! Thank you for the tips! :D You just giving me ideas for a new craft project

Rea Alducente said...

I loooveeee washi tapes!!! I just covered my planner yesterday because I got bored with its original cover. Washi is one of the best inventions ever! Hehehehe.

Jazmine Llaguno said...

This is genius. Where can I buy them? I'd like to decorate my notebook, too. Is it availabe in National Bookstore or somewhere?

Anne said...

You're welcome!

Anne said...

Thank goodness to whoever invented them!

Anne said...

Yes they're available in National! But alas the designs I've seen so far were only limited. Try online shops for more variety. :)

CAOLANO said...

Kalingaw! Some of the things in my room and my car needs to be introduced to Washi. ;)

Jeane Louise Mainit said...

This is so amazing. I had been wanting to channel my inner artist but then again, sometimes work comes in the way. Washi tapes really is a great way to hype up a seemingly boring piece of notebook or pen. Thanks for sharing this! :)

Anne said...

Yay! Go introduce them na!

Anne said...

You're welcome JL. Yes that's what makes washi tapes a great craft material. They're easy to use and they can spice up just about anything.

Fernan Salibongcogon said...

I'm a guy. But I think it would be very fun for me to try some of my things decorated with these awesome tapes. Haha

Anne said...

There happens to be a lot of masculine designs too Fernan! I'm sure you'll have fun with them. :)

Vernon Joseph Go said...

I stared at them, and I thought it was hand painted or something.. but stickers? whoooah you got some skilll!

Kiat Cebu said...

Are there anime or super hero designs, too?
I might try this out soon but for sure, this is a great test of patience.

www.kiatcebu.com

Anne said...

Yes stickers! Or well I guess the better term would be tape. Haha. They're easier and simpler to work with.

Anne said...

Indeed patience! Yes I've seen superman and batman designs before Jeph.

Emjae Fotos said...

that's really cute..I miss the artsy craftsy side of me..heheh back in college I did some scrapbooking often but I did not get to know this. Thanks for sharing your ideas and introducing this stuff. :)
