I know I can't be the only one who has tried to hit up McDonald's for a McFlurry, or shake and gets hit with the, "Sorry, our machines is down right now." I swear, that happens 90 percent of the time, and it fills me with the kind of rage that only an Oreo McFlurry could soothe.
For years I just thought the employees were f*cking with us (They probably were), but they must have really had some busted machines, because McDonald's is reportedly replacing its ice cream machines with newer, sleeker ones in the US and Europe, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The new machines are reportedly easier to clean and maintain as they have fewer parts to work with. That's huge because one of the biggest reason the machines are often down, is because of the 4-hour cleaning process they must go through.
Hopefully they get these going at all McDonald's soon, and they can finally operate at all hours, because I no longer want to be denied my 2 a.m. caramel sundae craving.
