Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McDonald's Orange Matchmakers McFlurry Confirmed sighting: McDonald's Orange Matchmakers McFlurry
Posted: 22:38 Thu 07-Dec-2006. Price: 99p. Location: McDonald's, Goodge St, London. Nutritional unusualness: See below.
Snackspot reports: Thank goodness I'm not too strict a vegetarian, as I've had to plough through both the (largely predictable) Big Tasty with Bacon and "Created with Nachos and Salsa" Mexican Chicken Premiere to find the real gems of Mickey D's Xmas lineup - the impressively minty Mint Chocolate Milkshake and this genuinely "zingy" followup to Christmas 2004's Mint Matchmakers McFlurry. I can't imagine there's much good news in their nutritional info, though I seem to be slightly too impatient/ attention deficit-afflicted to be able to extract that data from the company's baffling new website - there's an irony in there somewhere, I'm sure.

..."Ordinary" Matchmakers are also now available in Honeycomb flavour (as I think "Phillerena" previously pointed out?), while there's talk that former McFlurry stalwart the Cadbury Creme Egg will be imminently on sale in 900ml Ice Cream Tub form.

Comment: Searched and couldn't find any mention of:- Florida's Natural Fruit Juice Nuggets. Small cubes of 66% juice (well mainly pear according to the tiny bag) in orange, strawberry and blueberry flavour. Tried them as I used to love Tropicana until they changed the juice and found out It's now It's packaged as Florida's Natural.
