McDonald's has a new, limited-edition McFlurry flavor for fall, and guess what? It's pretty awesome.
'mcflurry' on Serious Eats
The red and green bits dotting the top of my McDonald's Holiday Mint McFlurry weren't immediately identifiable to me, but they were not the candy cane shrapnel I had assumed I would be seeing. I can't tell you what the hell these things are. That's not to say I don't like them.
We missed out on writing about this delectable, candy-filled concoction when it was first introduced last summer, so when McDonald's decided to bring back the limited edition flavor, we jumped at the chance to try it.
The big three fast food chains—McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King—are all offering some type of blended dessert. At McDonald's, of course it's the McFlurry, a soft-serve ice cream with toppings mixed in. Burger King has introduced the BK Sundae Shake, a choice of shake—chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry—with Oreo topping, whipped cream, and a dash of hot fudge. And not to be outdone, Wendy's is offering a Frosty Redux called the Twisted Frosty—a chocolate or vanilla Frosty base with toppings "twisted" in. Which is the sweetest?
