McDonald’s never ceases to be a vast network of secrets. We recently informed you of the dense and twisted history of the “I’m Lovin’ It” theme song. And last week, we received word that McDonald’s in Japan is serving pumpkin chocolate french fries.

According to RocketNews24, the McShake Morinaga Milk Caramel is a collaborative effort with the century-old Japanese candy maker, Morinaga, whose caramels are a huge part of Japanese candy history! Morinaga is also known for making one of our favorite corner-store candies, Hi-Chew.

Plus, the McShake’s custom cup is a tribute to Morinaga’s original candy wrapper design, and only comes in this tiny size:

The taste-testers went on to say that the McDonald’s “milkshakified” version of the candies are, “an extremely faithful, and tasty, adaptation of their source material.”

Though our hearts break knowing that the shake is only available in Japan through mid-October, we can only hope that McDonald’s USA gets something similar someday!

Until then, we can watch these top-notch commercials for the Morinaga McShake:
