Global purveyors of ‘sometimes food’ McDonald’s are really pushing the boat out to celebrate their 50th year in Oz.
And any such celebration would not be complete without some style of birthday-related confection.
Well, Macca’s has certainly come to the party in that respect, today unleashing a limited edition Birthday McFlurry which pays homage to one of the cornerstones of classic Aussie birthday bashes – fairy bread.
Yep, that’s right! This iced confection comes complete with lashings of sprinkles, a hearty drizzle of caramel sauce and chunks of the Macca’s cult fave Custard Pie to create a dessert that totally looks like a birthday cake dropped in ice cream!
The aforementioned Custard Pie is also making a welcome return to the Macca’s menu for a limited time with both items available from Wednesday on Uber Eats for a week until they hit stores nationwide on Wednesday 7 July.
“Our new McFlurry flavour was inspired by iconic Aussie birthday party favourites including Birthday Cake and Fairy Bread, to create a nostalgic and delicious dessert that will put everyone in the birthday spirit,” McDonald’s Australia marketing manager Amanda Nakad said.
“We will also be reintroducing a much-loved and highly requested crowd favourite, the Custard Pie, giving Aussies even more reason to celebrate our 50-year milestone,”
McDonald’s has been busy offering hungry revellers a bunch of birthday exclusives including cut-price Big Macs, the return of the Mac Jr and Grand Mac, and commemorative ‘wobble’ glasses.
