The Smarties McFlurry is officially out of retirement at McDonalds.
I had know idea that it was off the menu, I thought it was just out of the rotation every time I went to the drive-thru.
I guess it was "abruptly removed from the menu in 2015" ??(https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/mcdonalds-canada-smarties-mcflurry-2021)
Theories on why they removed it:
- They play dice with our Food Emotions (foodmotions©) in the Test Kitchen.
- ☝That's it, that's the only viable theory.
