A Happy Meal and McFlurry

McDonald's is debuting yet another sweet treat, just in time for summer.

The fast food chain has announced it is dropping an unexpected limited-edition flavor starting on May 21 that fans are excited about: the Grandma McFlurry.

Offered as a limited-time item, the sweet treat is said to take inspiration from elderly mother figures, as it combines a “delicious syrup” and crunchy candy pieces—“like grandma's favorite treat that she hid in her purse!”—with vanilla soft serve, according to a press release.

He noted that the flavor innovation comes as the grandma aesthetic is currently "having a major moment influencing culture" across social media and beyond.

On Instagram, fans seemed to be receptive to the new offering, commenting under a post shared by food blogger Markie Devo with excitement.
