McDonald’s is bringing a best-selling McFlurry topped with COOKIES to Australia – but you’d better be quick

  • McDonald’s is bringing one of New Zealand’s favourite snacks to Australia
  • From March 3, Australian customers can order a Cookie Time McFlurry in-store
  • Cookie Time is a cult Kiwi biscuit brand beloved across New Zealand
  • Eager fans can order the flavour on Uber Eats before next week’s official launch 

McDonald’s has brought a new McFlurry to Australia for a limited time only – and it’s sure to delight New Zealanders living across the ditch. 

Packed with triple chocolate chunk cookie crumb and hot fudge sauce, the flavour is a collaboration between Macca’s and cult Kiwi biscuit brand Cookie Time, which has become a national treasure since it was founded in Christchurch in 1983. 

Australian customers can order a Cookie Time McFlurry in restaurants across the country from Wednesday, March 3.

But eager fans too excited to wait for the in-store launch can order the new flavour for $5.10 (AUD) on Uber Eats right now.

If the chocolate and fudge mix doesn’t do enough to sate your taste buds, McDonald’s recommends adding Cadbury Flake, mini M&Ms and extra caramel topping to your ice cream for 55c each.

The Cookie Time swirl will only be available in Australian Macca’s until the end of April, so you’d better move fast.

The news comes after the fast food giant yesterday teased fans with a social media post about the latest release, promising ‘something big is coming.’

‘Before you say bubblegum, this is a McFlurry collaboration Australia’s never seen before – one for all our Kiwi friends!’ a post on the McDonald’s Australia Facebook page read.

Fans shared ideas about what the new flavour might be, with many guessing pavlova, Milo, Violet Crumble and Caramello Koala.

But the Cookie Time creation did not disappoint.

The announcement prompted customers to flood the comments section with responses such as ‘oh my god sis, catch me at Macca’s daily’.

‘Guess I’m getting fat again, if it’s Cookie Time cookies,’ another person said.

McDonald’s New Zealand stores first sold the Cookie Time McFlurry in 2018, mixing its signature soft serve and caramel sauce with chunks of chocolate chip cookie.
