McDonald’s has released their first new seasonal McFlurry flavor in 7 years with the new Snickerdoodle McFlurry. There’s a catch to getting one though… it’s only available exclusively with McDelivery via Uber Eats and it’s only available for a very limited time — from November 11 through November 17. A wide release is likely imminent a little later since it’s mentioned to be a “early access, first taste” sort of deal and a good way to promote McDelivery. The new Snickerdoodle McFlurry consists of vanilla soft serve with crumbles of sweet cinnamon cookies. We’ll keep you posted on an extended release window that’s sure to come after Thanksgiving.
