An irate Australian patron has lashed out at McDonald’s and Nestle due to their recent modification to the McFlurry dessert menu, accusing them of destroying “the most superior dessert we ever savoured.” The backlash ensued following the establishments’ decision to prohibit additional ingredients in the Milo McFlurry, thereby depriving customers of the liberty to personalise their desserts with extra toppings like chocolate flakes.
The individual, a self-proclaimed McFlurry enthusiast, voiced his angst on TikTok, asserting it as an explicit attack on the Australian ethos. The gentleman expressed, “Milo McFlurry, ingredient customisation, nothing. All you can do is discard the milo and be left with a bland version. Initially, I conceived it to be an error. However, during my drive-through experience, I found they serve hot fudge separately in a container, necessitating me to integrate it manually.”
The vehemently expressive TikTok post rapidly garnered over 30,000 views, stimulating consensus among numerous likeminded dessert aficionados. Commenter Tyson Truscott exclaimed, “This is an absolute scandal! This issue needs to be addressed to the prime minister straight away!”
However, the employees from the fast-food giant provided an explanation to the sudden prohibition that curiously doesn’t extend to other McFlurries like the cherished Oreo option. A TikTok user named “hails” who happens to work at McDonald’s shared, “Even our workforce is upset by this. Nestle’s rules are stringent on this matter.”
Another TikTok user further shared, “As a trainer at McDonald’s, the regional managers have reinforced that no extra Milo can be added, strictly adhering to Nestle’s nutritional guidelines.”
Despite these clarifications, the discontented customer remains unpersuaded about the notion of Milo regarded as a health food, stating, “Milo is not a wellness food; this is an unAustralian move. They’re attempting to exert control over us and spoiling the best dessert we ever had.”
The Milo McFlurry made its debut in September. Nestle, being the global leader in the food and beverages sector, boasts reputable products like Mia, KitKat, and Nescafe, under its banner. In a past TikTok post, the disgruntled customer had displayed immense anticipation for the delectable arrival of the new McFlurry. “This signifies Australian culture; this is the most heavenly dessert of our times so I eagerly await its release.”
The management of McDonald’s has been approached to provide their comments on this pertinent matter.
