The Oreo McFlurry combines our two favourite things, Oreo cookies and ice cream. Anyone would agree that the taste of Oreo cannot be mimicked no matter how many times other companies have tried. It’s not just another chocolate biscuits with cream; it’s the Oreo biscuits and cream. Due to our love of chocolate biscuits, it’s no surprise that the Oreo McFlurry is a crowd favourite.
The chocolaty, crunchy bites coupled with the smooth, creamy McDonald’s McFlurry is the kind of dessert that people will line up for. Let’s admit it, we love our Oreo McFlurry in the cold weather as much as the hot weather.
What is Oreo McFlurry
With the popularity of Oreo biscuits, it makes sense for McDonald’s to incorporate Oreo cookies into its unique ice cream. When you order an Oreo McFlurry, you get a good serving of soft-serve ice cream doused with crunchy Oreo pieces and nothing else. It’s such a simple recipe, but no one does it as well as McDonald’s. Despite having other flavours, most people would agree the Oreo McFlurry taste the best, alongside the M&M’s McFlurry of course.
The History of the Oreo McFlurry
To understand the story behind the Oreo McFlurry, we have to follow the story behind the invention of the Oreo cookies and the famous McDonald’s McFlurry. Believe it or not, the Oreo cookies have been around since 1912.
The Oreo cookies were invented by the Nabisco Company in its Manhattan factory in 1912. They were initially created as an imitation of the Hydrox Cookie that was invented by the Sunshine Company in 1908. The cookie filling was developed by Sam Porcello, a food scientist at Nabisco.
The McFlurry, on the other hand, was invented by McDonald’s in 1995 and was first sold in Bathurst, New Brunswick in Canada. It quickly became a crowd favourite and within a short period of time, it became a worldwide hit. McDonald’s have come up with a few different flavours over the years, but it was their M&M’s McFlurry and Oreo McFlurry that made it to the Thrillist list of the 17 Best Fast Food Desserts.
Over the years, McDonald’s have introduced flavours like Bubblegum Squash, Double Chocolate Fudge, Nestum and the most recently, Mint Oreo McFlurry that was tested in September of 2018.
Make Your Own Oreo McFlurry
Have a little fun and make your own Oreo McFlurry instead. All you need is a good quality vanilla ice cream, a cup of milk, half-and-half cream and of course crushed Oreos. You might not have the swirling machine that McFlurry is often made with, but you can still somewhat get a similar taste. Plus, it will be a fun weekend activity, especially if you are with friends or family. All you need to do is mix all the ingredients mentioned earlier and whip it as hard as you can until it looks similar to the Oreo McFlurry.
Where to get the Oreo McFlurry
You can get the Oreo McFlurry at any McDonald’s near you, which is pretty easy to find because there’s at least one McDonald’s outlet in every town and city in Malaysia. Have it from the drive-thru while you are on the way to work or have it at the outlet after you have finished enjoying your McDonald’s burgers and fries.
