TORONTO — Six years after removing it from the menu, McDonald’s Canada has officially announced the return of the Smarties McFlurry at participating restaurants nationwide. Since the flavour was removed from the menu in 2015, the Internet has been flooded with angry customers deploring the loss, prompting two online petitions encouraging its return.
“The McFlurry is a Canadian icon,” says Jeff Anderson, senior manager, Culinary Innovation, McDonald’s Canada. “It was invented in Bathurst, N.B. in 1995 and we are so proud to bring back the Smarties McFlurry so Canadians can enjoy their favourite treat once again.”
The McFlurry lineup now includes Smarties, Oreo and SKOR, featuring creamy vanilla soft serve swirled “Smarties has been a beloved brand of Canadians for so many generations,” says Frédéric Baur, president, Nestlé Professional, Nestlé Canada. “We’re thrilled to join forces with McDonald’s to bring the Smarties McFlurry back on the menu, just in time for Canadians to enjoy this summer.”
Canadian customers can order the Smarties McFlurry in-restaurant for pickup, drive-thru, or through the McDonald’s app, as well as SkipTheDishes, UberEats and DoorDash.
