I Dream of Ice-Cream | New Magnum Temptation & Magnum Dessert Bar

I have a soft spot for desserts. I'm the type of girl that has no qualms about starting a meal with dessert... or maybe just having ice-cream for dinner on a hot summer day haha. Yes, I'm unhealthy that way but these are life's simple pleasures that are meant to be enjoyed and shared :P So dear friends, I want to share some delicious news with you that Magnum has just launched a new luxurious ice-cream - the Magnum Temptation!

Magnum Temptation is the same quality Magnum ice-cream that we all know and love, but now with added syrup-filled chocolate bonbons and other yummy dessert ingredients! It comes in two flavours - Magnum Temptation Hazelnut & Magnum Temptation Fruit.

I attended the launch last Friday night in this pretty maxi dress. I love wearing maxi dresses and actually when I was pregnant with Lil Pumpkin, I saved a lot of money on maternity wear as I could wear my maxi dresses with my growing tummy & still look chic. Talk about mileage for your clothes ;p

The Magnum Temptation launch was held at ION Orchard. It was a really hot night and I'm so glad that I was attending an event for ice-cream!! heh

That night was also the opening of the Parisan-themed Magnum Dessert Bar at ION Square where you can get to customise your own Magnum ice-cream. Choose chocolate or vanilla ice-cream, and the service staff will dip it in either milk or dark chocolate. Then, while it's still warm they will sprinkle your favourite toppings on it.

My friend Janice {owner & chef of 2am: dessertbar} was also there to create exquisite gourmet treats inspired by Magnum Temptation ice-cream. The full plated creations are available only at her restaurant from 25 May to 10 June 2012.

Janice is such a talented chef. Great to catch up with you!

I loved my Magnum ice-cream with cranberry toppings.... Actually I had 3 Magnum ice-creams that night. They are seriously that good.

Hey, I'm not the only one that enjoyed all the sinful goodness! :P Lil Pumpkin finished one with crushed pistachios topping.

You know the night is a great one when you get to meet The Muttons!!!!! heehee... by the way Vernon A & Lil Pumpkin share the same birthday!
