McDonald's Launches New Mini McFlurries And New Flavours – While Quietly Shrinking Regular Size
It's always exciting when a new flavour of McFlurry comes out, giving us an excuse to run down to our local McDonald's just to make sure it tastes okay. You know how it is.
But this time round it's not just our choice of flavours that is getting a bit of a shake-up; Maccy's is also having a bit of a re-jig of its McFlurry sizes.
That will no doubt come as good news for anyone trying to watch their weight a little but still in need of a sweet treat every now and again, with the calories being halved from around 320 calories to around 150.
Launching on 27 June, the mini ice cream treats will be available in all the core flavours like Cadbury Dairy Milk, Oreo and Cadbury Crunchie - as well as two new limited edition flavours that are also being released.
Along with a Flake chocolate flavour, McDonald's will also be serving up a summery Flake raspberry McFlurry - which, to be fair, sounds bloody delicious.
These new limited edition flavours will be around from 27 June through to 7 August, meaning you'll have most of the summer to go and check them out.
But arguably the biggest change to take place to the McDonald's McFlurry offering is that a regular sized McFlurry will decrease.
The new 150g tub will replace the current 170g guy that we know and love, with the price being reduced to 89p down from 99p for 'core' flavours. For promotional, limited edition flavours the price will be £1.29 rather than £1.39.
According to the Sun, McDonald's has stressed that the new changes are nothing to do with the sugar tax, which has seen many other brands like Coca Cola and Irn Bru either decrease bottle sizes or slash sugar content.
A spokesperson said: "By offering smaller portions at a reduced price we are providing our customers with the opportunity to make a choice that is right for them."
The choice to roll out the mini McFlurries nationwide comes after a successful trial - though it's hard to say how the change to the regular product will go down... What do you think?
