It’s become sort of a running joke on social media that McDonald’s ice cream machines ALWAYS seem to be broken. It always seems to happen like clockwork at night, when you get that mad craving that only a McFlurry will fix.
It’s almost like the Golden Arches has heard our prayers and will be installing new machines in both the US and Europe. There is no word on when exactly the changes will take place.
The reasons for the current McFlurry’s machine issues were varied, but were mostly attributed to the fact that the machines took so long to clean. Therefore, employees would start the process way too early, denying us a late night McFlurry. The new machines have been touted as being much easier to maintain, with less parts to take apart.
