I’ve never really been interested in Magic Shell toppings for my ice cream because I’ve never been fond of the crunch; I like my ice cream soft, with some chocolate syrup and totally non-crunchy! However, in recent months, I’ve seen Magic Shell at my grocery store now available in cupcake flavor.
I’ve put off buying a bottle for a very long time, but intended on getting some for my daughter’s birthday, as an excuse to try it out. Luckily, it was also on sale that week, so I picked up a bottle.
If you’re not familiar with Magic Shell, it is a liquid ice cream topping that freezes almost instantly when poured on top of ice cream to a slightly crunchy texture. It comes in a variety of flavors, including the usual chocolate, as well as caramel, cherry, and s’mores.
But how is the cupcake flavor, you ask? It is quite sweet! While it might remind one of a cupcake, it tasted more like a sweet white frosting to me.
The cupcake flavor comes with its own built-in assortment of sprinkles, as well.
In summation, I liked it! My 2-year-old son does as well, but my 4-year-old says she definitely prefers her ice cream plain. :)
