Limited Edition: Maltesers McFlurry

So when making my way through town the other day I passed a McDonald's and stopped to check which McFlurry they were specialising in at the moment, and I was delighted to find that it was a Maltesers flavour! Of course I couldn't walk away with the knowledge that McDonald's were doing a Maltesers McFlurry and not buy I dug around in my purse for the £1.39 required and happily made my way home!

'Drift away in a swirl of soft dairy ice cream, mini Malteser clusters and malted chocolate sauce'

At a hefty 410 calories per Pot these limited edition Maltesers McFlurries should definitely be classed as a treat every once in a while.

Removing the lid, on first appearances the McFlurry looks quite messy! There seems to be a fair serving of the Malteser clusters and a big dollop of the malted chocolate sauce. 
In reality, the further I made my way through the ice cream, the more disappointed I began to feel! The ice cream was the typical soft serve that we come to expect when buying McDonald's McFlurries, so this was smooth and creamy with that classic milky taste. 
 The Maltesers clusters were gorgeous, essentially they were little clumps of Maltesers mashed together spread throughout the ice cream. However, there wasn't nearly enough for the whole ice cream! So once I'd made my way through about a third of the ice cream the clusters were all gone!
 Lastly, I will admit I wasn't a fan of the malted chocolate sauce....and in some ways was glad that there was only the slight dollop on top and that it wasn't mixed throughout the ice cream! There was just something that tasted 'off' about the sauce that didn't sit well with didn't taste sweet or add to the ice creams flavour, and unfortunately it really let this limited edition McFlurry down.

Overall, I wasn't impressed with the taste of this ice cream. I loved the Maltesers concept but I think the flavourings need to be seriously rethought for next time! 

P.s. If anyone's bored or has any time to spare I found this really cool link that shows'28 unusual and wonderful International McFlurry flavours'  And I've got to admit some countries have brought out some amazing (and confusing) McFlurry flavours that I would die to try! I think I'd most like to try the Blueberry Oreo flavour from Japan....which would you like to try most? Leave a comment below! 

Thanks! xo

Would I buy this again? NO

  1. I have an absolute disappointment. Went through the drive-thru which is so rare for me. Got a mcflurry for myself and my teenage son who also got a thickshake. The maltesers were whole and sitting on top they were not mixed through and had terrible icecream at the bottom. Just ice-cream with topping and about 8 maltesers sitting on top. I could of got a sundae with topping. And it would of been better. Expectation was crushed. Ah well at least I'm not hooked i won't be back.
