“Long queue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

If you like magnum ice cream you'll like this, choose your chocolate covering with 3 toppings from about 12! Long queues to get in, there is one with no queues in the shopping centre in Dam sq on the top floor! Bit of a gimmic but nice all the same.

“An experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

It is an experience and for that it was worth paying for. The ice cream was great too. All four of our kids couldnt finish these so unfortunately dad had to help! So maybe 1 icecream is just enough - but 1 + 1/4 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 was too much icecream for one day!!

“If You Like Ice Cream, You'll Like This!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I went here on a whim while in Amsterdam. I expected a tourist trap, and the line was a bit long, but it was very fun to make my own ice cream bar and choose all the ingredients.

There's a big selection of toppings---everything from toasted hazelnuts to strawberries to hot chili flakes, and I kinda wished I could have put 5 or 10 toppings on instead of 3, but still was able to create something decadently novel.

They take pics of your creation and make it very easy to share online (if you want). One other seemingly small (but nice) bonus was that the ice cream bars are very well refrigerated! So, when you get to the end and are ready to eat it, it's still frozen and is not a huge melty mess (as often happens at ice cream places over the summer)

Lots of fun for both kids & adults, and only mildly suggestive :-)

“great ice-cream but not planned well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

You can expect long waits in the summer. Once you have your ice-cream, there are only 3 or 4 bean bags to sit-on and no real tables. Not very comfortable to plopped down and eat your ice cream. I guess they just planned it to be uncomfortable so you get your ice cream and leave the shop.
