If you’re an ice cream lover in Sydney between August 27th and October 19th, you’re in luck! To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Magnum has set up shop temporarily in the Westfield shopping centre. The Magnum Pleasure Pop-Up Store lets you customise your ice cream. It’s a six-step process that leaves you more than satisfied. My choices: vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate coating, 4 toppings: roasted hazelnuts + dark cookie chunks + mixed chocolate crispearls + salted pretzels, drizzled with milk chocolate… yeah… kind of over the top. They use a cocktail shaker to mix your toppings together, cute! Other interesting toppings: rose petals, honeycomb pieces, and blackberry chips.
Julia, my younger sister who is also on a student exchange but in a different city, took a train from Wollongong to Sydney for a daytrip. I think this ice cream outing was the real reason for her visit rather than the Coogee to Bondi coastal walk we did earlier that day.
Be prepared to wait in line, and don’t arrive right before closing time! The cost: 8$.
