McDonald's reveals new Grandma McFlurry: ‘Tastes like a trip down memory lane’

McDonald’s is serving up a scoop of nostalgia with their latest menu addition: the Grandma McFlurry.

According to the fast-food giant, the new McFlurry is "sweet – just like grandma" and features syrup, crunchy candy pieces and vanilla soft serve ice cream. 

McDonald’s Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer Tariq Hassan said that grandmothers are having a "major moment influencing culture" – inspiring trends, decor, and now, even food.

"The Grandma McFlurry tastes like a trip down memory lane, and we're excited to give our fans that experience while honoring the grandma-figure in all our lives," he said in a press release Thursday.

 According to the Wall Street Journal, citing internal emails, the promotion will only last about a month, but will include a McChicken or McDouble, four-piece chicken nuggets, fries and a choice of drink.

McDonald’s did not specifically confirm the $5 deal, but in an email to FOX Television Stations, it noted the importance of "meaningful value" for its customers.
