A McDonald’s employee is going viral after “revealing”
a secret behind one of the chain’s most popular items.
The employee, who goes by marzpire on
social media, shared the insider knowledge
in a TikTok video posted on April 12.
In it, she briefly shows her followers
the reasoning behind the spoons served
with the chain’s McFlurry desserts.
The plastic spoons served inside the
candy-packed ice cream treats are wide and
hollow — as if designed to double as a straw —
but they’re also sealed off at the bottom.
“Have you ever wondered why you can’t
actually drink out of a McFlurry spoon,”
the user captioned her video, which has
been viewed more than 3.8 million times.
The TikToker goes on to show the entire
process of preparing an Oreo McFlurry.
revealing that the “straw”
is actually designed to fit the
chain’s mechanical mixers.
“If u didnt know, now u do,”
marzpire wrote in her post.
The now-viral video received a wide
range of responses, many from commenters
who were shocked by the realization.
“I know for a fact EVERY SINGLE PERSON who
has had a Mcflurry for the first time has tried to
drink it out of the spoon,” one commenter wrote.
“Well that explains it after all these years,”
another added. “I tried to use it as a flute
now seeing this scars me,” another joked.
Others were less impressed, claiming that they
had long been aware of the design’s purpose —
and criticizing McDonald’s for failing to utilize it.
“I thought this was obvious,”
one user commented. “They’ve never
mixed mine so i didn’t know this
info until now,” another added.
“Okay but that doesnt mean it cant
ALSO be a straw,” another wrote
