A McDonald's employee has cleared up any confusion about the McFlurry spoons:

The funny-shaped utensil has caused confusion in the past with some people thinking it is a straw that you can suck the ice cream through. Wrong.

A McDonald's employee has cleared things up by explaining it's real use - which is to mix up the frozen treat so that the choice of chocolate combines with the ice cream.

The worker, who uses the TikTok handle @marzpire, posted the 13 second clip on to the video sharing app and captioned it: "If u didnt know, now u do #mcflurry #mcdonalds #icecream #mcdonaldssecrets #howto #canada."

On the video she wrote: "Have you ever wondered why you can't drink out of a mcflurry spoon???" Before adding: "What the spoon is really for... To MIX!!"

Responding to the clip, one person wrote: "Wow! I swear I've learned so much off tik tok," while another added: "I used to think it was a broken straw."

A third commented: "I have known this for years and yet still every time I get a McFlurry I try to drink out the straw." Someone else said: "I know for a fact EVERY SINGLE PERSON who has had a McFlurry for the first time has tried to drink it out of [sic] the spoon."

Since posting, the clip has been viewed over 3.7 million times and has nearly 330,000 likes.

When one person asked why the McFlurry's are never mixed up properly, the original poster wrote: "Cuz AIN'T Nobody for time for THATTTT, also even when u mix it, it doesn't go to the bottom its just mixed at the top."

Well, mixed or not one thing is for damn sure - you won't be enjoying a McFlurry at the moment because McDonald's is still closed amid the coronavirus lockdown.

The fast food giant might be closer to satisfying your frozen needs though because they've spoken out about its plans to start a gradual reopening.

Paul Pomroy, McDonald's CEO for the UK and Ireland, said: "In March, we took the decision to temporarily close our restaurants in the UK and Ireland for the safety of our people and customers.

"Recently, we began working through a potential and limited reopening. We have been listening to our employees and customers as well as engaging with government and trade bodies to help ensure we do this responsibly, when the time is right.

"Restarting our business is not an easy task even when reopening in a limited capacity.

"We have set ourselves some key criteria for reopening, all of which take time - first and foremost ensuring the well-being of our people and creating the right environment for them to return to work; secondly ensuring we have enough supply of fresh produce; and finally working in-step with government guidelines to ensure the safety of our customers."
