Magnum Manila: Salty Regret

I’m about to tell you a story of salty regret.

A Magnum is basically a type of luxury ice cream sold in the supermarkets. It’s made with Belgian chocolate and all the works. Personally, I like Magnum ice creams – especially the dark chocolate one with almonds. Anyways, Magnum opens up these little pop-up shops in different countries wherein you can make your own Magnum bars with your choice of toppings. When it opened here in the Philippines, people went crazy for it.

I know the hype for Magnum Manila is pretty down already, but I never really got the opportunity to try it until recently. I was in the area when I decided “today is the day I’m going to try this thing”. I went up to the store in Mall of Asia and my eyebrows raised a bit when I saw the price (I mean, I could buy almost 3 regular Magnums with that price).

First stop, Carousel Creamery! Luckily, my cousin’s house is about 15 minutes away from here.

So far, 32/ 101 ice creams are available. Can’t wait to come back when they have 101!

I’ve read so many reviews about this place, and they were all good. I’ve been very excited to go there and I must say, my expectations were met. I got really excited (and very happy) when I saw this:

After watching Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, I’m still in the hype of it (in fact, I was wearing Star Wars socks today, too) so I ordered one of these. Can you guess which one?
