McDonald’s Japan Rolls Out Cherry Blossom McFlurry

McDonald’s Japan is introducing an extremely pink McFlurry for spring

McDonald's Japan has rolled out a McFlurry full of pickled cherry leaves and crushed pink waffle cones for spring.

One of the first signs of spring in Japan is when all the restaurants, groceries, and convenience stores start rolling out a flurry of cherry-blossom-themed limited-time offerings. So far this year Japan has seen cherry blossom Coca-Cola and even cherry blossom beer, and now McDonald’s Japan has come out with a 2017 limited edition of its own, and it’s a cherry blossom McFlurry.

According to Rocket News 24, McDonald’s Japan is offering a McFlurry Crunchy Sakura, which is soft serve ice cream mixed with salt-pickled cherry leaves and crushed pink waffle cone bits to make it crunchy. Cherry blossoms do not last long on the trees, and cherry blossom mania is short-lived event too, so the McFlurry Crunchy Sakura will only be available until April. In the meantime, they’re available at McDonald’s restaurants across Japan for about $2.60 a cup.
