The best McFlurry flavors to try if the machine is working

Looking for a sweet treat with your favorite McDonald’s meal? Try one of the restaurant chain’s McFlurry flavors. McDonald’s McFlurries are a mix of soft-serve ice cream and your choice of candies, cookies, or sweet flavors.

McDonald's McFlurry

McDonald’s first launched the McFlurry back in 1995 and it is now available in 99 different countries. 

The best McDonald’s McFlurry flavors include fan favorites, classics, and a few unknowns. We’ll be going through each of them and why these flavors should be on your list of things to try.

The next time you go through a McDonald’s drive-thru or visit one of the chain’s restaurants, you’ll want to check one of these flavors off the list. 

Below is a description of the top 10 best McDonald’s McFlurry flavors, including what you can expect each to taste like. We’ll be ranking each of the flavors according to which ones we think taste the best and are the easiest to find.

Best McDonalds McFlurry Flavors

Here is our list of the best McDonald’s McFlurry flavors and a short description of their ingredients. 

Oreo McFlurry

The Oreo McFlurry mixes the classic Oreo cookie with McDonald’s vanilla soft serve. You’ll get chunks of Oreo cookie and vanilla ice cream in every bite. The Oreo McFlurry comes in regular and small sizes.

However, you can expect vanilla soft serve made with cow’s milk and sugar. The Oreo cookie crumbles contain a mix of sugar, enriched wheat flour, syrup, and cocoa. This McFlurry favorite is our favorite because who doesn’t remember dipping the cookie classic into milk as a child? 

You’ll get to relive this experience each time you dig into an Oreo McFlurry. And you’ll get to cool off each time!


Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

McDonald’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup McFlurry might be a little harder to find. This is because some stores only carry it during certain times of the year. Still, it makes the number two spot on our list because of the wide appeal of Reese’s peanut butter cups. 

In this McFlurry flavor, you’ll find broken-up pieces of Reese’s peanut butter cups. These contain peanut butter and chocolate coating. You’ll also find the same vanilla soft serve mixed in.

This is mostly made out of cow’s milk and sugar. There are a few preservatives thrown in. For Reese’s lovers in the family, this is a super sweet treat indeed.


M&Ms McFlurry

Who doesn’t love M&Ms? Why not combine these sweet and popular chocolate candies with the cool taste of vanilla soft serve? Our list would not be complete without the M&Ms McFlurry! 

This treat has the classic milk chocolate M&Ms mixed in with McDonald’s vanilla ice cream. In the McFlurry, you’ll find milk chocolate coated with sugar candy shells, cow’s milk, and more sugar. The M&M’s McFlurry is easy to find at any McDonald’s or McDonald’s franchise. 

The flavor is so popular, the chain even has an M&M McFlurry sandwich! It’s made as a chocolate chip cookie with M&Ms and vanilla soft serve inside. 


Butterfinger

The Butterfinger McFlurry takes another candy bar favorite and combines it with McDonald’s ice cream.

Those who adore the taste of Butterfinger will appreciate this summertime dessert. Within the ingredients are pieces of the Butterfinger candy bar, known for its toffee-like crunch. 

Irresistible vanilla soft serve balances out the buttery and toffee taste of the candy. You’ll find plenty of sugar, cow’s milk, chocolate, and preservatives in this one.

But if you enjoy Butterfinger it may be worth it. Just be sure to get the snack or small size if you’re counting calories. A tiny snack size has 53 grams of carbs!


Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry

Okay, so we had to throw in some curveballs for you, and this is one of them. The Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry takes pieces of the outer chocolate shell of a Cadbury egg, the gooey center, and mixes them with vanilla soft serve. Yes, it’s a sugar rush waiting to happen.

And you may only find it in the U.S. during Easter time. But if you’re lucky enough to be in Canada, Australia, or Ireland, you could find it during other times of the year.

Cadbury Creme Egg fans won’t want to miss out on this flavor!


Praline and Cream

If you like pralines and hot caramel, you’re going to love the praline and cream McFlurry.

This flavor mixes bits of praline nuts and a healthy heaping of hot caramel with vanilla soft-serve. You can expect a nutty and almost buttery sweet flavor across your taste buds.

This one made it number six on our list since a lot of people like nuts and caramel. But some people are allergic to nuts or find caramel a little too sweet. If that’s you, that’s okay. Be sure to check out some of the next great flavors on the list!  


Rolo

Like Rolo candy? Try the Rolo McFlurry on your next McDonald’s run.

This flavor features bits and pieces of Rolo candy mixed in with soft serve. If you’re not familiar with what’s in Rolos…well, you’ve probably been living under a rock for some time.

Basically, you’re looking at milk chocolate and caramel in the center. Mixed with soft serve, those bits of caramel are bound to get a little tough. But don’t worry, the McFlurry machine will make sure they’re small enough not to hurt your teeth.

Give one a try if you like chocolate and caramel.


Snickers

Here’s another popular candy bar that’s turned into a well-loved McFlurry flavor. You can’t go wrong with a Snickers McFlurry.

However, there’s a rumor that McDonald’s doesn’t use actual Snickers in its creation. Instead, the chain uses bite-sized versions of some of the same ingredients like peanuts, milk chocolate, caramel, and nougat. 

Don’t forget that all of this is mixed in with vanilla ice cream made of cow’s milk and sugar. For the Snickers’ lovers, this McFlurry will hit the spot. Be sure to get one for yourself!


Stroopwafel

Stroop what? Yep, you’re reading that right. It’s a Stroopwafel McFlurry inspired by the Dutch dessert.

Think caramel, buttery cookies, and soft serve vanilla together in a cup. Although this flavor is quite rich and sweet, you’ll probably find out that it’s worth the risk.

Once you’ve tried a spoonful or a whole cup, you can say you’ve tried Dutch cuisine. And you don’t have to fly to Amsterdam to do it! McDonald’s has added this flavor to its restaurants in the United States.


Twix

Oh, yes. The adored caramel and milk chocolate cookie crunch bars that are known as Twix. This candy bar is broken down into bits and pieces and swirled into McDonald’s soft serve to become a Twix McFlurry. 

Add some caramel sauce and you’ve got yourself a new favorite ice cream dessert! For lovers of chocolate, caramel, and cookie crumbs, this is another classic on McDonald’s menu.

You should be able to find this flavor in nearly every restaurant or franchise in the United States. The flavor is so popular that it’s also featured overseas in countries like Ireland.
