McDonald’s Cherry Blossom McFlurry

I haven’t had one of these since I was a kid, but when I saw this announcement I was immediately curious about it. First off, how cute is it that they have a Cherry Blossom McFlurry?! Can American McDonald’s have one too? Conveniently timed with the cherry blossoms in Japan, this McFlurry is topped with sakura mochi (rice cake sauce) and has swirled in bits of soft pink waffle cone. Yum! This special McFlurry is available starting today in Japan McDonald’s and is being priced at $2.60 USD or 290 yen. This special treat will be available through March until early April.

Yow Yow’s Top 10 Posts of 2013

This is a pretty healthy mix that I am happy with. This is probably one of my favorite posts to compile every year because I am always so interested in seeing what readers are drawn to the most. I’m not able to get a whole lot of stats from WordPress or the stats that I mainly need, but I’m so thrilled to know that two of our interview posts were a top read this year. Working with both Hollis and Molly was  such a treat!

The People You Meet At McDonald’s

No matter how many movies they make or how many articles they write about how unhealthy McDonald’s can be, there is still something that draws people to this restaurant. I was just telling Kevin tonight that  all I wanted was a Big Mac, Fish Fillet, and 2 for $1 baked apple pies. Obviously, this would not have been consumed all at once, but it is still what I wanted.

People from all walks of life all over the country are consuming McDonald’s. One man named Nolan Conway was intrigued by this diversity and spent the past year traveling all over the country to photograph hundreds of different people eating at McDonald’s restaurants. Check out a snippet of the photo series here.

McDonald’s French Fry Party

Kids are the best, aren’t they? I remember one time watching an episode of Arthur where his family dinner consisted of only French Fries and I was all “whaaaaaa…?!” Well these kids in Korea kind of did the same thing – a whole meal consisting of French Fries. This photo is just ridiculous.

McDonald’s Fish McBites

Can we talk about how THIS is happening at McDonalds?! I’ve always believed in the theory that people just love small food. Hence – sushi’s popularity as well as bite size candy bars and little tea sandwiches. McDonalds is getting in on that trend by turning one of their most popular sandwiches (and my favorite sandwich) The Fish Fillet into Fish McBites. Genius. Get me some now.
