Are you a fan of the McDonald’s M&M's McFlurry? Sorry to disappoint, but it could be off the menu soon. Mars Inc., the company behind M&Ms, Twix, Snickers and countless other classic chocolatey favorites announced that they are considering dissolving M&M’s partnership with other sugary favorites. Apparently, the company had a revelating discussion with other companies about how sugar plus sugar is not good for the masses. To remedy this situation, they are considering offering their sugars separate from others so you won’t… overindulge.
According to Reuters, taking out the M&Ms in your McFlurry will save 7.5 additional teaspoons of sugar from hitting your belly. McDonald’s and fast food companies are also in talks to revamp their menu in turn for healthier options (again) so that could mean well for those trying to watch their weight at a fast food joint.
Aside from M&Ms McFlurries, Mars is also thinking severing their candy connection with other fast food dessert items like Burger King’s Snickers Pie or Dairy Queen Blizzards. Ergo, we may be kissing a sweet goodbye to these soon.
Right, McFloat is a hit with international McDonald’s chain and they’re finally making a debut to the U.S. according to Business Insider. For now, only select locations in New York and Seattle are serving the McFloat. However, you can actually make the following McFloats yourself with the existing menu items at your local McDonald’s.

Which very much looks like a grand ride into Boringsville. You can easily order soda and soft serve ice cream and DIY really. This is no doubt another initiative to liven things up at McDonald’s locations across the country. If you haven’t heard yet, McDonald’s is modernizing with self-service kiosk at some locations (already established in Europe but spreading through U.S. now) and is planning to bring about all-you-can-eat-fries starting with one special location. According to Mercury News, they have also began rolling out more local options like the garlic fries in San Francisco, kale and Chobani greek yogurt in Southern California among other local favorites.
What do you think of these changes? Are you onboard with the McFloat?
