McDonald’s launches insane new menu item
McDONALD'S has today launched a new menu item, the Apple Pie McFlurry, in a collaboration with UberEats.
Maccas says one in four people who order an Apple Pie on Ubert Eats also order a Sundae, so they decided to launch a hybrid of the two desserts to save customers from having to "hack" the menu with their own inventions.
The McFlurry's vanilla soft serve ice cream will be topped with pieces of apple pie and warm caramel sauce.
The menu item is only available on Uber Eats from today until Tuesday, September 4, but from next Wednesday it will be sold in all McDonald's restaurants around the country.
In honour of this popular menu hack landing a permanent spot on the Maccas menu, we've rounded up 10 of the best McDonald's menu hacks. You're welcome.
1. OREO MILKSHAKE
Order a vanilla or chocolate milkshake and ask for the Oreos to be mixed in for an extra 50 cents.
2. MULTI MEAT BURGER
That's right: this is beef, chicken and fish stacked in one bun. Ask for a burger, Filet-O-Fish and a McChicken. Private assembly required.
3. GARDEN SALAD WITH CHICKEN PATTY
Order a garden salad and a single chicken patty. You will need to DIY the cutting of the chicken but once that's done you've got a delicious chicken salad for just a few bucks.
4. PLAIN SUNDAE WITH M&MS
Read: The poor man's McFlurry. M&M's can be substituted for any topping.
5. THE STEAMED BUN
Have you ever noticed how the Filet-O-Fish bun is different to all the others? It's lighter and more pillowy because it's steamed rather than toasted like the regular sesame bun.
You can ask for a steamed bun with any burger, which will also guarantee your meal is made fresh.
6. BIG MAC SAUCE ON ANYTHING
You can add Big Mac sauce to anything: nuggets, fries, wraps, salads. Honestly why wouldn't you?
7. APPLE PIE AND ICE CREAM
Soft serve + apple pie = happiness. It's a proven equation.
8. SOFT SERVE AND ESPRESSO
Order a soft serve with a single shot of coffee.
9. CHICKEN BIG MAC
People having been ordering the Bic Mac sans beef, add chicken for years. But lucky for us, this is now an official menu item.
