The “Customize” button that appears with most menu items when ordering from the McDonald’s app opens up various ingredients and options you can add that don’t come standard. Want your fries with MORE salt? That’s an option. Want to turn an inexpensive McDonald’s hamburger into something that costs twice as much with the addition of bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes? You can do that, moneybags. The “Customize” button also allows you to order McDonald’s limited time only Oreo Fudge McFlurry long after it’s gone.
Before being an official menu item, I could order an Oreo McFlurry with hot fudge sauce for an extra 35 cents, which ends up being slightly more expensive than what I paid for this official version.
While it’s not the most unique McFlurry idea I’ve stuffed into my face, I still think it’s a delicious treat. How could hot fudge in an Oreo McFlurry not be delicious?
Mine was mixed well, and every spoonful had a bunch of crunchy Oreo crumbles. The cookies add a bit of a darker chocolate flavor than what the hot fudge does. Also, because the topping is mixed into the ice cream, its flavor doesn’t come through as it does with a hot fudge sundae.
Also, I miss the fudge’s gooey texture, which isn’t there beyond whatever got flurried onto the inside of the lid. Instead, all the chocolatey topping does is enhance the Oreo flavor, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
Since McDonald’s didn’t put much thought into this treat, I decided to put as much effort into enhancing it one step further. Thanks to a birthday surprise through the McDonald’s app, I could get a free cinnamon roll. So I decided to combine the two treats, thinking it would be awesome. It ended up being okay because the cinnamon roll overpowered the ice cream and cookies. They’re definitely better apart.
With the McDonald’s Oreo Fudge McFlurry, I guess we finally got a McDonald’s Menu Hack that doesn’t involve us having to put it together on our own. It’s available for a limited time, and it’s definitely worth a try while it’s around or when it becomes the slightly more expensive McDonald’s Oreo McFlurry with hot fudge sauce that you can get by tapping the “Customize” button.
SIDE NOTE: It seems while the Oreo Fudge McFlurry is available, it’s not possible to customize a regular Oreo McFlurry with hot fudge sauce. Makes sense. But you can add caramel topping to one. Maybe an Oreo Caramel McFlurry is in our future?
