There was certainly a flurry of activity on the east coast yesterday.
Residents of Bathurst, NB were pelted with fake snow and ice as they lined up for a sample of McDonald’s newest treat, a red velvet McFlurry. Created to celebrate the dessert’s 20th anniversary, the fast-food chain handed out the red-and-white treat in front of the franchise where it was invented. All day, eager customers lined up in the fake snowstorm to get a taste. And boy, did it ever look worth it:

Even though the McFlurry was born here in the Great White North, it turns out other countries have found ways to make it even better. Japan, for example, is home to the famed green-tea flavoured Matcha McFlurry:

If chocolate is more your thing, you should check out Italy, where you can indulge in the McFlurry Baci Perugina. It’s basically a heaping pile of delicious fudge:

Perhaps our all-time favourite is Argentina’s McFlurry Vauquita, which contains a delicious mixture of Dulce de Leche and chocolate that’ll satisfy any sweet tooth:

So why are we telling you about McFlurries you can’t get here, you ask? Because McDonald’s is giving you the chance to visit one of the countries we mentioned and eat all the ice cream you want! All you have to do is take a selfie with your own McFlurry and tag it with @McDonaldsCanada and #McFlurry to have your chance at becoming the company’s McFlurry ambassador. If you win, you’ll be on your way to ice cream heaven!
If you don’t win, don’t worry, you can still score some free treats! A McFlurry truck will be travelling across Canada giving away free samples of the red velvet McFlurry, and you can follow when it will be coming to a city or town near you right here.
In the meantime, try not to get any ice cream headaches!
