Last year a very special relative came to live with our family. As we all adjusted to the change, we have grown closer together and developed special memories, habits and jokes between us.


Early on, one night hubby was coming home from McDonalds and us gals ordered M&M & Oreo McFlurry’s for him to bring home. At the opening of the garage door, a slip of the tongue, and McFlurry’s forever became “McFlurreos” to us: a special treat we shared with much laughter, and also sometimes a special treat when one of us needed a “pick me up” after a rough day.


Fast forward 18months.


McDonalds no longer sell M&M or Oreo McFlurry’s 🙁


how COULD they take away M&M’s??? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???!?!!


It’s sad that we can no longer get M&Ms or Oreo’s in our icecream and that our joke no longer has the same ring to it, but it’s not THAT bad. I could go as far as to say that this creates a problem for me, as I’m a creature of habit, but I won’t. I COULD have a new McFlurry if I wanted to… but I decided somewhat hastily that in my own little protest I was no longer going to buy McFlurry’s.


It’s been a few months now, and I’ve stayed strong. I now just buy a chocolate sundae. A few times (three to be exact, but I won’t admit that) I’ve even wanted a M&M McFlurry so bad that I’ve gone to the supermarket and bought M&M’s to go with my choc sundae. Yes, you read that right. Here’s my pic to prove it.


Choc Sundae with M&Ms


It’s a little more effort, but it’s really getting the best of both worlds – M&M’s from the McFlurry’s and the Choc Fudge Sauce from the Sundaes. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
