Aussies are revealing what they really think of Macca’s latest offering, describing the fast food joint’s new treat as the “most Australian dessert ever”.
News first broke of the Milo McFlurry coming to Aussie menus in August, after food blogger @nectoriouspapi took to social media with an advertorial mock-up.
Macca’s confirmed the dessert was indeed coming back but did not reveal the dates – but the mock-up suggested it would be between September 27 and November 7.
Now, the dessert is available across the country and Australians are sharing their thoughts on the $4 menu item.
TikTok user @bynessa_ took to the social media platform after rushing to Macca’s to try the vanilla ice cream topped with Milo.
“It’s probably the most Aussie Macca’s item to ever exist,” Nessa said.
“It tastes pretty good but in all honesty it just tastes like vanilla ice cream with a scoop of Milo. I feel like it would be better with chocolate soft serve with Milo nuggets on top.”
Another social media user, @rachel.farrugia, took to TikTok to share her thoughts on the McFlurry.
“There is a pretty decent amount of Milo. I thought it would come with a chocolate fudge swirl,” Rachel said.
“It is just ice cream and Milo but the nostalgia of like spoons and Milo as a kid – this is actually really yum.”
The release of Macca’s Milo McFlurry comes as the fast food restaurant has released the brand new McCripsy burger.
The permanent menu item features 100 per cent Aussie RSPCA approved chicken breast with a crispy coating.
It also features both shredded iceberg and cos lettuce, the McCrispy signature sauce and is served in a soft glazed bun.
Earlier this year, McDonald’s Australia released Maltesers McFlurry as part of a limited-edition menu items drop.
It’s not the first time McFlurry flavour has featured on Macca’s menus – it was previously available back in 2012.
In the UK, it became a fixture in 2019 after British customers were enthralled by the frozen treat.
