According to McDonald's, this latest dessert features vanilla soft serve, syrup, and chopped, crunchy candy pieces reminiscent of the sweets grandmas often carry in their purses.

Tariq Hassan, McDonald's Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer, said Grandma McFlurry aims to evoke nostalgic memories. Hassan added that grandmothers are now influencing fashion, decor, and food trends. 

"Grandmas have always held a special place in our hearts, and today they're having a major moment influencing culture - inspiring trends in fashion, decor and now, even food with our newest McFlurry," said Hassan in a press statement.

"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 added.

You can share this sweet treat with your grandma or grandma-figure in your life starting May 21.
