magnum pleasure store
Spending so much of my time writing about food, it is rare that a pop-up peaks my interest the way it did when I found out about the new Magnum Pleasure Store in Covent Garden.

Whether you’re a casual Magnum consumer or a diehard fan, the brand’s short-term pleasure takeover is sure to get your tastebuds racing. Upon entering the store, you are welcomed by a friendly team of Magnum Pleasure Makers who help you dip, top, and drizzle your selected Magnum to indulgent perfection.

We’re talking everything from black lava sea salt to honeycomb to chilli flakes; quite literally thousands of customisable Magnum combinations.

Of course, it would be better if it were free, right?

In efforts to waive the £4.50 fee for a handful of lucky fans, Magnum collaborated with award-winning fashion designer Holly Fulton to create the stunning Key to the Pleasure necklace seen above and below. Though less than 100 have been made, the graphic necklace has mass appeal: it is the quasi-proverbial key to free freshly-dipped Pleasure Store Magnums.

Speaking about the collaboration, Holly Fulton said; “As a designer, I love the challenge of working with different brands and interpreting their signature style with my own. Magnum have a strong following as a decadent contemporary treat and I wanted that to be encapsulated in the necklace we have created together. The cracking chocolate and classic vanilla ice cream are translated through laser cut perspex and subtle crystal touches whilst the overall shape of the hand produced necklace echoes the synonymous shape of the Magnum. The piece acts as a key to the pleasure store and we are excited to be partnered with Magnum on this project; I look forward to seeing people enjoying their necklaces and the delights of the store over the Summer!”

The craving is all too real, you say? Head down to Covent Garden and “coat it, top it, drizzle it, set it” the Lela London way (recipe below!).

Last night I headed East (!) to Westfield Stratford to celebrate the launch of Magnum’s new pop-up shop alongside model and TV presenter Kelly Brook.

Launching today, the Magnum London store at Westfield Stratford City will be open for seven weeks and give guests the options to create your own Magnum. If you’re daring, test the delicious marshmallow, salt, and popping candy concoction on white chocolate (don’t worry, there are plenty of “normal” flavours)! Visitors can also indulge in cocktails, desserts, and test out Magnum’s “Pleasure Pod”.

The Pleasure Pod – seen below – is the world’s first bio-responsive food installation and has been designed by neuroscientists for the past six months. The sensory environment uses skin tension, facial expression, deglutition (aka swallowing) and heartbeat data to capture your unique responses to the intense pleasure hit we receive when chowing down on a Magnum Infinity. I suggest you pop down and try it yourself, as there are stunningly unique visual animations projecting throughout your experience!
