REVIEW: McDonald’s McFlurry with Reese’s

McFlurry with Reese's

They say bacon makes most things better, but I believe the same can also be said of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. (See here, here, and here.)

Blending Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with soft serve ice cream to create the limited time only McDonald’s McFlurry with Reese’s sounds like McMagic.

By the way, McMagic is quicker and cheaper than regular magic, and if you use it too much, you’ll get fat.

To be honest, I thought the McFlurry with Reese’s was on McDonald’s menu all this time, which I guess shows how often I eat a McFlurry. After accidentally Googling McFluffy and then correctly Googling McFlurry, I learned the McFlurry with Reese’s is somewhat similar to the McRib in that it comes back every so often, people have created Facebook pages dedicated to it, and they both don’t have bones.

While I don’t really care for the McRib, I did enjoy the McFlurry with Reese’s.

If you look at the pictures, the McFlurry is topped with what appears to be a generous heaping of crushed Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and that crushed candy gives the dessert a wonderful peanut butter and chocolate flavor. However, even after mixing the McFlurry, the bottom fourth of it had very little candy pieces, and I was left eating what was pretty much just vanilla soft serve.

Also, there’s something else I noticed about the peanut butter cup bits. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have a distinct peanut butter flavor, but I didn’t quite taste it in this fast food dessert. It’s as if the vanilla soft serve ice cream is a flavor vampire.

But, again, I did enjoy the McDonald’s McFlurry with Reese’s. It’s a satisfying dessert and I definitely prefer it over another limited time only McFlurry variety — the Rolo McFlurry. I can taste why people will take the time to set up and manage a Reese’s McFlurry Facebook fan page.

Now, of course, this begs the question, if people love them so much, why doesn’t McDonald’s permanently add the McFlurry with Reese’s to their menu? Because it’s not as if its availability is based on pork prices. There’s a lot of soft serve ice cream and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the world.

5 thoughts to “REVIEW: McDonald’s McFlurry with Reese’s”

  1. I had the same experience when I reviewed it for The top two thirds of the McFlurry had a ton of Reese’s cups in it, but the bottom third had nothing. Much like Blizzards, etc., it all depends on how much the person that is making focuses on doing it right. Unfortunately, that happens rarely. It’s gotten to the point that I specifically ask at drive thrus/registers to make sure that they mix it well. I sound like a dick, but I don’t care. I want a well mixed treat!!

  2. I just googled “McFluffy” out of curiousity and the first link was the Urban Dictionary defination. Thanks, internet!

  3. I love love love McDonald’s Reeses Cup Mcflury this is the most delicious ice cream product I have ever ever had. Did I say I love it. McDonald’s please do not take it off your menu. I always buy two. Ok they could be bigger.
