Magnifico’s Ice Cream is on Route 18, one of those lovely New Jersey roads where you can’t make a left turn and have to go a mile out of your way to make a U-turn. BUT, the ice cream is worth the frustration of a New Jersey highway. Magnifico’s was opened in 1981 by Gary Magnifico and gets high marks as a New Jersey favorite.
If you like soft ice cream and sundaes, this is your place. They have many flavors and toppings, as well as egg cream and shakes. (I always wonder who these people are who order milk shakes at ice cream shops?) I couldn’t resist ordering a cherry-dipped vanilla cone. I’m glad too, because this was one of the best I’ve ever had.
