REVIEW: McDonald’s Stroopwafel McFlurry

McDonald s Stroopwafel McFlurry

I am of the opinion that McDonald’s outside of the states is better.

One of my all-time favorite fast food sandwiches is the McSpicy in Asia. Now one of my all-time favorite treats is the Stroopwaffel McFlurry from the Netherlands! But, the best is part is that I can get the latter here (for a limited time unless you visit the Chicago HQ McDonald’s locations which carries international items regularly.)

If you’re not familiar with a stroopwafel, it’s a euro-phenom. It’s basically a genius way to eat a cookie for breakfast; they’re very thin (even thinner than Oreo Thins!) waffle wafers sandwiching caramel. The waffle itself has the cinnamon goodness of a freshly made waffle cone, but it’s much more pliable, delicate because it bends with the caramel without crumbling. I appreciate McDonald’s went with the most well-known maker Daelmans.

But, you won’t find a whole cookie! The treat itself has broken up pieces of one blended with caramel and vanilla soft serve.

Because I may have been the first person order this at the location I went to, I was able to overhear the details about making the sausage, um, soft serve treat. The snack size comes with two scoops of cookie bits and a regular comes with three. Both get one pump of caramel.

The cookie pieces ate like caramel bits that beautifully stuccoed the vanilla soft serve. They didn’t freeze up from the cold. Also, one scoop of bits was plenty generous as I thought there was a nice distribution throughout the treat.

The pump of caramel nicely enhanced the caramel in the stroopwafel but didn’t overtake it. However, I could tell the stuff in the cookie was better with notes of cinnamon and vanilla compared to the straight sugar of the confection that was pumped in.

Overall, if you love caramel, you’ll definitely enjoy this!

  1. Definitely my favorite McFlurry. This is the best stroopwafel-based product I have ever had. To be fair though, the McFlurry does not contend against much…

  2. I had one last week and when I saw this I was like “They better day it was good because it was GOOD! And you said it was good. And so here we are.

  3. The one I had they forgot the caramel and I didn’t notice until too late. Definitely going to have to try it again.

  4. Our visit today I tried this new item Stroopwafel McFlurry , generally I like there special items, this one for me is a total failure, I believe somebody mixed up the recipe because it was mostly ice cream, carmel was there but only about 1 spoonful of cookie bits or crunchies, yes I did notify the on duty manager , her response was she was sorry, I wasn’t looking for any free item, But the $2.99 value for this item is not up to McDonalds standards, Get the ice cream cone under $1.00. This is the location , 6595 N Decatur, Las Vegas

  5. The Stroopwafel McFlurry is definitely the best ice cream dessert I have ever eaten in my opinion for a commercial dessert. I loved it. However, if you are watching your weight, you better not eat anything else for a meal at this point. It will surely not help your weight. But it is so good, just ONE won’t hurt you. I felt it was well worth the cost for such a good and generous serving. I had the Regular size, not the snack size.
