McDonald's Snack size McFlurry
Hmm, yes, another post from McDonald's. Lately, all the McD's in town have been undergoing renovations. The restaurants look 'classier' with muted tones instead of the garish yellow/red/white combos or the odd pink/teal colours from the 90's. All the restaurants are incorporating McCafe's (yay!) and self-serve drink fountains. I think this is a really good idea since it increases efficiency and also, you can get a nice coffee/snack fix...while enjoying free WiFi!
Anyway, I noticed a new size of McFlurry - snack size. This is a smart move by McDonald's since we are all so health conscious nowadays. It makes me feel less guilty about dumping a half-eaten McFlurry because the small was really still, too big for my liking. A small sized McFlurry weighed in at about 500 calories so hopefully, the snack size will be a more reasonable treat. (it's slightly bigger than the sundae cup)
One new thing about the McFlurry is.. the ability to add hot fudge, caramel, or strawberry sauce. This may increase the calorie count but I tried one with hot fudge and Oreo crumbs (as it was helpfully suggested via the billboards) The taste - amazing! If you love fudge and oreos.. you cannot go wrong with this combo :)
Overall conclusion... go get one! The weather is hot and the price is right (only $1.99!)
