In an email, McDonald’s described that the US version will feature “signature creamy vanilla soft serve, strawberry-flavored clusters and crunchy shortbread cookies.”

Currently, the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry is available overseas in Singapore.

Online, McDonald’s states that the item includes strawberry sauce and Oreo pieces, which appear to be the global version.

The US variety will have shortbread toppings in place of the Oreos.

The Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry will launch in the US on April 12th.

The catch, however, is that it will be available for a limited time, while stocks last at select national stores, according to McDonald’s.

The exact price of the item is not yet clear.

FAN REACTIONS

Most McDonald’s fans are optimistic that the McFlurry will soon have a new flavor in the US

Many left a comment under a thread posted by the sweet treat Instagram account (@snackolator) regarding rumors that the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry would be hitting the menu in April.

One said: “When I worked at mcd in 1999 I used to make sprinkles and mixed oreos, chocolate sauce and strawberries!!! Customers would love it!”

Another said: “We used to have strawberry sundaes with the peanuts!!! So good, McDonald’s.”

However, keep in mind that the ice machines may not work, as many reviewers have slammed McDonald’s, claiming that their local restaurant does.

The US Sun has reached out to McDonald’s for further comment.

While fans await the arrival of the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry, there are other flavors as long as the ice cream machine works.

These include Oreo Shamrock, M&M and Oreo McFlurrys.

While prices may vary by location, a local store viewed by The US Sun via the app shows these items cost $3.79, $4.89, and $4.89, respectively.

And note that these items may only be available for a limited time due to the Shamrock McFlurry launching for St. Patrick’s Day.

Also, McDonald’s has made other changes to the menu, including the introduction of two types of crispy chicken sandwiches.

This includes the Bacon Ranch McCrispy along with a deluxe version with Roma tomatoes and shredded lettuce.

Also, McDonald’s and Krispy Kreme are merging.

Donuts are sold at select McDonald’s locations in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky.

It’s unclear if it will expand beyond these areas.
