Nothing quite says spring in Japan like...a McFlurry.
During this season, many products, from yogurt to Starbucks, get limited edition sakura (cherry blossom) versions in Japan, which is probably why McDonald’s is rolling out a special spring McFlurry.
According to Entabe, this frozen treat comes with sakura-colored waffle cone bits accented with pickled cherry blossom leaves and a sakura mochi (cherry blossom rice cake) sauce.
Back in 2014, a sakura McFlurry was released in Singapore. However, from the sound of it, that McFlurry didn’t taste like sakura, but oddly, blackcurrant.
This latest McFlurry, which does apparently taste like cherry blossoms, will be available from March 1 to early April in Japan.
