​McDonald’s Brings Back Galaxy Caramel McFlurry

Not all McFlurry flavours were created equal, let's face it. There's always a couple that particularly stick in your mind - the ones that really break your heart when they're removed from the menu (for me, it's the Smarties McFlurry I always miss most when it's not around).

Christmas in the UK saw the release of a special Malteser Reindeer McFlurry, which featured mini reindeer-shapes and swirls of chocolate sauce.

Over in Australia, meanwhile, McDonald's customers have it particularly good, as they can opt for an APPLE PIE MCFLURRY, which lets you top that creamy vanilla soft-serve ice cream with delicious chunks of Apple Pie, smothered in a warm caramel sauce. I know, the rest of us have been doing it all wrong.

Well, there's some great news for fans of the Galaxy Caramel McFlurry, as it has now returned to McDonald's stores.

Anyone who's had one before will know the Galaxy Caramel version sees the signature McFlurry soft ice cream swirled with Galaxy pieces and topped with a 'smooth caramel sauce'. In short: what's not to love?

As per a recent re-jig to the McFlurry options, the treat is now available in both regular and mini sizes. The smaller version contains 190 calories and 7.2g of fat, while the regular contains 380 calories and 14g of fat.

Another, more recent change for the fast food giant saw the introduction of its first ever vegetarian Happy Meal, which launched on 3 January.

The new meal costs £2.49 and contains a veggie wrap packed with a red pesto goujon, tomato ketchup and shredded lettuce, which is all tucked up in a soft, toasted tortilla.

A grown-up version of the wrap called the Spicy Veggie Wrap has also been added to the permanent menu, costing £2.99 and featuring a spicy relish into the mix.

The new products follow research that found one third (33 percent) of McDonald's customers think it's important that they start including more meat-free meals into their families' diets.

Duncan Cruttenden, Menu Director at McDonald's UK&I, added: "Our commitment is to offer great food, great choice and a great experience to our customers and we are constantly asking them how we can evolve and improve.

"We are really thrilled to be able to give our customers this new choice with the addition of the Spicy Vegetarian Wrap and our first Vegetarian Happy Meal."
