McDonaldâ€™s Canada brings back SMARTIES McFlurry after a six year hiatus
Attention all SMARTIES fans: the McDonaldâ€™s Canada vault has officially opened up to bring back the one and only SMARTIES McFlurry. When the flavour was discontinued in 2015, there was a national outcry on social media, sparking not one, but two online petitions advocating for its return. Well, the wait is now over! Available today, the SMARTIES McFlurry returns to participating McDonaldâ€™s restaurants nationwide.
â€œThe McFlurry is a Canadian icon,â€ said Jeff Anderson, Senior Manager, Culinary Innovation, McDonaldâ€™s Canada. â€œIt was invented in Bathurst, NB in 1995 and we are so proud to bring back the SMARTIES McFlurry so Canadians can enjoy their favourite treat once again.â€
The SMARTIES McFlurry will be offered in addition to the existing SKOR and OREO flavours. Made with creamy vanilla soft serve, the cold treat features crushed SMARTIES with 100% natural colours and flavours. Those who like their soft serve a little more chocolate-y can even add some hot fudge topping to the mix.
â€œSMARTIES has been a beloved brand of Canadians for so many generations,â€ said FrÃ©dÃ©ric Baur, President, NestlÃ© Professional, NestlÃ© Canada. â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to join forces with McDonaldâ€™s to bring the SMARTIES McFlurry back on the menu, just in time for Canadians to enjoy this summer.â€ Canadians can enjoy the SMARTIES McFlurry in-restaurant for pickup or Drive-Thru, through mobile ordering on the McDonaldâ€™s app and with McDelivery via SkipTheDishes, Uber Eats and DoorDash.
