Celebrate Grandma with McDonald’s Limited Edition McFlurry® departure May 21

CHICAGO, May 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — McDonald’s is where unforgettable memories are made with Grandma. Whether it’s treating us to an impromptu soft serve or letting us have dessert first, grandmas always know how to make us feel special. And now it’s his turn. We’re inviting fans to celebrate Grandma and recreate some of those precious moments this summer by treating themselves to the Grandma McFlurry – available from May 21 For a limited time.

The new McFlurry is sweet – just like Grandma’s – and contains delicious syrup and chopped, crunchy candy pieces (like Grandma’s favorite treat she hid in her purse!) – all mixed together in our creamy vanilla soft serve. It’s the perfect treat to share with Grandma or the grandmother figure in your life.

“Grandmothers have always held a special place in our hearts, and today they are having a major moment influencing culture – inspiring trends in fashion, decor and now, even food with our brand new McFlurry,” said Tariq Hassan, director of marketing and customer experience at McDonald’s. “Grandma McFlurry feels like a trip down memory lane, and we’re excited to bring that experience to our fans while honoring the grandmother figure in all of our lives.”

An extra sweet way to communicate with Grandma

Music has the power to bring loved ones together, especially when it’s a new version of a familiar tune.

Singer-songwriter Rémi Loup covers the classic song “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)” which will be available on all music platforms from May 21. And twice Latin GRAMMY® nominee and Puerto Rican star Jay Wheeler creates a cover of the iconic Latin song “Piel Canela“.
