McDonald's has a new dessert, and it called the McFlurry sandwich. The McFlurry sandwich is not on the menu because you have to make it yourself by using two of McDonald's sweet treats. The DIY (do it yourself) dessert is easy to make by using the Oreo McFlurry and chocolate chip cookies. The concoction turns out to be like an ice cream sandwich.

Fan's creation

The new dessert is the brainstorm of a McDonald's fan who is a frequent customer. A Californian Twitter user posted the way to make the dessert after he was hungry and wanted something to satisfy his sweet tooth.

He simply took ice cream from an Oreo McFlurry and sandwiched it in between two milk chocolate chip cookies to create a McFlurry sandwich.

The Twitter user is now considered a genius and an inventor. His tweet has been retweeted over 20,000 times and has been liked over 58,000. Some people are angry with themselves for not having thought of the combination before. The McFlurry sandwich is becoming so popular that it might end up on McDonald's official menu. In the meantime, feel free to make your own.

Cost of making the sandwich

It doesn't cost a lot to make the McFlurry sandwich. In the United States, a McFlurry costs $1.69, and the two cookies cost only $0.78.

That means that in the United States, the treat costs $2.47. However, in the United Kingdom, a McFlurry would cost $3.17 to make.

Other treats

If the McFlurry sandwich doesn't appeal to you or if you don't feel like making the treat yourself, there are other options. You can purchase something from McDonald's desserts and shakes menu.

Other choices include something as simple as an ice cream cone. There are vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry milkshakes. The restaurant serves three kinds of sundaes, including a hot fudge sundae, a hot caramel sundae, and a strawberry sundae. McDonald's also has oatmeal raisin cookies as well as chocolate chips cookies. If you have a taste for a pie, McDonald's offers apple pies and strawberry & crème pies.

As you can see, McDonald's has you covered when it comes to a variety of desserts. It is amazing that people don't usually go to the fast food establishment for its desserts. The sweet treats are just bonuses after a good meal of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and french fries.

McDonald's is always looking for ways to entice customers to eat there instead of visiting one of its competitors. Perhaps that's why the 77-year-old fast food restaurant is still the world's largest chain with about 68 million customers every day in 120 countries in at least 36,900 outlets.
