Smarties lovers, rejoice!
It only took six years, two petitions, and a national outcry on social media… but the beloved Smarties McFlurry is back at McDonald’s restaurants across Canada.
And as of today, May 11th, you can get your fix at participating locations nationwide.
Made with creamy vanilla soft serve, the cold treat features crushed Smarties with 100% natural colours and flavours. Those who like their soft serve a little more chocolate-y even have the option to add some hot fudge topping to the mix.
When the fan favourite was discontinued in 2015, many disappointed frozen treat connoisseurs flocked online to share their frustrations, which resulted in two separate petitions for the dessert’s return. Obviously, the people have spoken.
“The McFlurry is a Canadian icon,” said Jeff Anderson, Senior Manager, Culinary Innovation, McDonald’s Canada.
“It was invented in Bathurst, NB in 1995 and we are so proud to bring back the SMARTIES® McFlurry so Canadians can enjoy their favourite treat once again.”
You can enjoy the Smarties McFlurry via pickup or Drive-Thru, through mobile ordering on the McDonald’s app and with McDelivery via SkipTheDishes, Uber Eats and DoorDash.
“SMARTIES® has been a beloved brand of Canadians for so many generations,” said Frédéric Baur, President, Nestlé Professional, Nestlé Canada.
“We’re thrilled to join forces with McDonald’s to bring the SMARTIES® McFlurry back on the menu, just in time for Canadians to enjoy this summer.”
