Spring means warm weather, longer days, and flowers on the ground (and our clothes). It also means Easter-themed desserts, and McDonald’s just announced what may be the best one yet: the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry is coming to McDonald’s, but there’s one big catch.
The exclusive menu item blends vanilla soft-serve, chunks of milk chocolate, and swirls of the sweet creamy center of a Cadbury egg. Plus, it’s topped with whipped cream.
It sounds delicious, but here’s the problem: The Cadbury Crème Egg McFlurry will only be on the McDonald’s menu in Canada and Australia.
*insert sobs here*
Cadbury Creme Eggs might seem like a popular Easter treat stateside, but the candy actually gets way more love abroad. According to Delish, Cadbury Cremes are more popular in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand than in the U.S. That might be because Cadbury U.K. first produced these sweets, or because Cadbury chocolate tastes different in the United States (according to many people) because Hershey is the distributor here.
So the Cadbury Creme McFlurry finds its home in countries where the candy is a bit more in demand. According to a statement from McDonald’s, the dessert is only available for a limited time. It’s on sale now, but will only be available until Tuesday, April 10th. Much like the Shamrock Shake, it’s a pretty exclusive cold treat and fans are going to have to move quickly to get a taste.
On Twitter, the Canadian branch of McDonald’s teased the frozen dessert, writing, “It’s that time of year again. The Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry is back! Scoop yours up before it’s gone.”
Is it too late to plan that Spring Break trip to Montreal?
