Today as we found ourselves in London and very close to Covent Garden. We decided to have a look at the magnum experience,we were very close last week but the queue was long enough that I didn’t want to queue. Today there was roughly eight people in the queue when we arrived and so I decided to treat both of us to a Magnum.
Once we were inside, there was another equally short queue which gave us the necessary time to decide which ice cream we wanted, the chocolate coating and the three different toppings we wanted. Before going I didn’t realise how much I’d have to chose from or that there was even a choice of drizzle and special Magnum ‘M’. N easily chose his ice cream, chocolate coating, toppings, drizzle and ‘M’.
On N’s Magnum he had vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate, coconut flakes, chocolate vermicelli, silver balls, white chocolate drizzle and white chocolate ‘M’.
Whereas, for mine I chose chocolate ice cream, dark chocolate, rose petals, black lava sea salt, brownie crumble, white chocolate drizzle and a milk chocolate ‘M’. I loved the salt combined with the rose petals and dark chocolate it really made all the flavours sing, N loved his ice cream and I didn’t get to try any of his.
Inside the Magnum Experience there was a picture made up of Magnum sticks. I had to get a picture.
My very messy boy, who loved the experience of choosing what he wanted on his ice cream and watching it being made in front of him.
It was definitely worth the wait although I’m not sure I could have waited for nearly two hours like some people have.
