McDonald’s is now serving Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurrys, and I have two very important questions. One, why didn’t we think of this before? And two, why are they only available in this one, remote location?
The Easter-themed confections are being sold in Australia only. And OK, fine, that’s not remote if you live Down Under. But for those of us living in, say, Boulder, Colorado, or Athens, Georgia, this is not a treat we can pick up on our way home from work.
Sure, you could grab some sour grapes and say those Cadbury eggs aren’t any good anymore ever since the company started using cheaper chocolate. And with a whopping 14 teaspoons of sugar, it’s probably for the best that we don’t have convenient access to the Cadbury McFlurry. (According to the World Health Organization, people who want to live a long, healthy life are advised to limit their daily intake of sugar to 6 tablespoons.) But we’re still a little jelly of the Aussies.

You know what, though? This is not rocket science we’re witnessing here. Do you have a blender? Hey, me too! Do you have access to a grocery store? Awesome. You can totes make your own creme egg milkshake, and it’ll probably be even better.

So thanks for the idea, McDonald’s. We will be exploring this idea further in our test kitchens. More to come soon!
