McDonald’s China Launches Sundae Topped With Coriander

Fast-food lovers are divided about McDonald's China's apparent move to infuse its popular sundae dessert with coriander.

The 'Cilantro Sundae' is seemingly topped with a bright-green coriander sauce and fresh 'crumbs' of the herb.

The internet is thus far divided on whether to get on board with the limited-time soft dessert or run in the opposite direction.


Coriander is so divisive, there is even an International 'I Hate Coriander' Day, which falls on February 24 - right before the end of the sundae's limited run.

The I Hate Coriander Facebook page has over 280,000 members.

The herb reportedly tastes starkly different to different people, with some relishing its tart, lemon/lime zest, and others comparing it to eating dish soap.

Reportedly how you respond to the herb comes down to genetics.


Back in 2020, Arnott's Shapes teased a coriander flavoured biscuit, which again divided opinion.

In recent weeks, McDonald's made another new product move, rolling its plant-based McPlant Burger out to more stores.

The burger's main ingredient had been crafted with vegan 'meat' maker Beyond Meat.
