When asked to imagine the perfect summer day, an image of sun, sand, and a classic chocolate and almond Magnum pop into our heads which was why I was so excited when to be invited to the launch of the Make My Magnum pop up store at Cavendish..
Cape Town joins the likes of New York, Paris, Amsterdam and Johanesburg, all of which have their own pop up stores. Top Billing presenter: Jonathan Boynton-Lee and Expresso presenter Leigh-Anne Williams were the hosts of the evening and showed the drooling audience how the process works. We couldn’t wait to get stuck in!

It’s very simple, one of the very friendly staff members will help you build your decadent creation, taking a classic vanilla ice cream you can choose from rose petals, chocolate pecan cookies, chilli, coffee, honeycomb, red velvet, nuts and then add your choice a white, milk or dark coating coating and drizzle. It’s R40 per ice-cream which includes 3 of the above drool worthy toppings, coating and a drizzle to add to the indulgence.
It’s like your favourite Magnum but only better, creating your own unique product is such a fun process and I was obsessed and just struggled with the serious questions of which of the amazing flavour combinations to try and which coating to add with it..!

I settled on a classic milk coating with red velvet, honeycomb and my absolute favourites, Oreos toppings with a white chocolate drizzle to add an extra oomph. Other fun flavour combinations included: strawberry gems, red velvet and popping candy. The finished products were utterly indulgent and moreish.
The pop up store is right below the Ster Kinekor at Cavendish, and is open from 10am – 8pm from tomorrow until 15 March 2015. It’s the perfect place for an indulgent treat, date or a little something fun before or after a movie. Expect queues, the Johannesburg store was notorious for those when it launched last month, it also set the world record of Magnums sold at a Make My Magnum store across the world. Get down to Cavendish tomorrow and let the team know what you think!
