    The latest addition to the  McFlurry lineup showcases McDonald's commitment to menu innovation. For a limited time only, guests can try the Squishmallows McFlurry at  participating restaurants in both regular and snack sizes.

    “We took inspiration from the vibrant and fun spirit of the Squishmallows when developing this new McFlurry and looked to bring that to life with a colourful and unique flavour combination,” says Chef Jeff Anderson, Culinary Innovation Lead at McDonald’s Canada. “The result is a delightful sensory experience for our guests, with unconventional ingredients that complement each other, like the pink popping candy and the sweet, fruity blueberry flavoured syrup.” 

    This new McFlurry comes as McDonald’s Canada continues to innovate to deliver unparalleled flavour experiences for its guests. Earlier this summer, the brand launched limited-edition McFlurry flavours Confetti Cookie Dough and Caramel Popcorn.

    “In partnering with McDonald’s Canada we are able to bring fans an interactive 360-degree Squishmallows experience which includes the Squishmallows McFlurry, exclusive digital playlists and special edition Squishmallows,” says Gerhard Runken, Senior Vice President of Brand & Marketing at Jazwares. “Happy Meals have featured so many iconic brands throughout the years, and this is a tremendous milestone for Squishmallows as we join forces with McDonald’s, a brand that is trusted and recognized across the world and loved by Canadians coast to coast.” 

    As a family destination, McDonald’s Canada is committed to continually enhancing the Happy Meal experience to deliver fun moments for families and children to enjoy together.  And, the brand continues to prioritize the digital experience for guests of all ages, which is why each Squishmallows Happy Meal toy design will also include an exclusive playlist, comprised of three songs, to bring their personalities to life.
