Absolute Pleasure in the center of Athens: Magic Pleasure Store!
For me summer begins when I do three things: When I dip my feet in the sea, when I wear my flip flops and when I finally enjoy my first Magic ice-cream. I’ll have the chocolate ice-cream on a stick with almonds, or the cone with almonds ( I’m an almond freak), or even the plain white chocolate on a stick. This summer I’ll be able to make my own ice-cream creation with Magic’s velvety vanilla base, exactly the way I like it! Keep reading….
Magic is celebrating its 25 years with us with its new store in the centre of Athens, the Magic Pleasure Store. Being a devout Pleasure Seeker, I was there from day one ( it opened a week ago and I’ve already gone 4 times ). I made my own various combinations and I came to the conclusion that, with ice-cream so creamy and so velvety, no matter what you top it off with, no matter what you sprinkle it with, or what you dip it in, this ice-cream is to die for!!
You want one too, hu? It’s simple. Take part in our contest that is listed below, and win a Magic ice-cream, all for yourself. Take the Metro and get off at Sytagma station. You’ll find the Magic Pleasure Store at the beginning of Kolokotroni street. You can’t miss it. ( It’s a gorgeous store!) Go in and approach a Pleasure Maker employee and he or she will make your dreamy ice-cream that will blow your mind!
Start by choosing the chocolate that your ice-cream will be dipped in. Your choices are milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate. Take lots of pictures of the ice-cream being dunked in the chocolate and post them on Instagram! Continue with the toppings. You’ve got lots to choose from. You’ve got your classics, almonds and brownies. There are also some funky choices like mango, crispy yogurt. Now, if you’re the experimental type, try the fleur de sel with ginger root! The chef-patissier, Dinos Fotinakis, made some special delightful toppings for us, such as cookie crumble with greek coffee and coconut! Amazing?
Before you indulge, ask your Pleasure Maker to pour a little more chocolate sauce at the end, and create a piece of chocolate art in the cute baskets they are served with. It’s so much fun! Did I mention it’s also CRAZY delicious? Post your pics on Facebook and make your friends drool!
Calling all Pleasure Seekers! Are you ready to enjoy a unique chocolate and ice-cream experience?
