The innovative confectioners of Wonders Ice Cream will bring their talents to the Mall of America.

The Bloomington megamall announced on Friday that it will be the location of the latest Wonders Ice Cream store in the Twin Cities.

Known for its rolled ice cream, the company has already added locations in Blaine and Maple Grove since opening its original store in St. Paul last August.

It's also opening stores in Burnsville and Minneapolis later this year.

Co-founder Joungkong Yang describes his concoctions as "the hibachi of ice cream," because it's not just about the food, but also the experience.

The ice cream is made right before your eyes on an ice grill that chills the ingredients, before being rolled into little spiral cylinders before your eyes.

It will open its newest ice cream and dessert parlor on Level 2, East at the MOA later this fall.
