I've not had a McFlurry for the psst few months, to cold :lol: but in had one last week and now they are more like paper pots and smaller again as usual. But the actual ice cream seems more "lightweight" and not as creamy as it was before. Has anyone else noticed this ? I googled and didn't find anything much past the removal of toppings choices :roll:

I haven't noticed ice cream taste change, but definitely they changed pots you have big and small pots to choose from and they don't sell stawberry and caramel sundaes any more.
Another point- McDonald shakes are much better on continent for some reason, especially stawberry ones. In UK it tastes like cheap strawberry jam with milk. In Poland and France I could taste real strawberries!

Damn @exxos now you have got me started on the shrinking size of confectionary.

[rantmode] I swear Mars bars were bigger a while ago. And where do we start with what is now an abomination called the Toblerone. Let’s just take chunks out of the original bar and pretend nothing happened. [/rantmode]
