Magnifico's sells great ice cream products, but they can be a bit pricey for a large group. Great summer cool down!

Stopped for a treat while staying local for a dog event. Really interesting spot with such a great variety it's hard to choose!!! My husband had the pumpkin ice cream and I had water ice. A-M-A-Z-i-N-G!!!! Great taste and texture for both!! We enjoyed it so much we stopped the next afternoon before heading back home. Wish we lived closer!!

They only serve soft serve ice cream here. You must pay with cash only. They have many different menu items to choose from including fat free, sugar free. There is usually a crowd.

Do not order a cone here because it melts before you have a chance to finish it. It ends up all over your hands and then you need a lot of napkins for cleanup. You might be better if with a cup.

If you are near route 18 in east Brunswick nj you must visit Magnificos. The ice cream is excellent and their specials every week are a must try . I have tried almost all my all time favorites are orange sherbet and black raspberry.
