Pick Your Poison: Broccoli McFlurry or Habanero Pepper McFlurry

One McFlurry to rule them all


By Cheryl Tan

McDonald’s Japan is gearing up for the release of the next Pokémon movie with new Pokémon-inspired McFlurry flavours. But the way it works is that fans in Japan have until midnight on 10 July to retweet their support for their preferred flavour and those who picked the winning McFlurry will be eligible for a discount coupon.

Here are the flavours:

Pikachu’s: Chocolate-covered banana

Jiglypuff’s: White peach

Squirtle’s: Ramune

Gengar’s: Sweet potato

Bulbasaur’s: Broccoli

Charmander’s: Habanero pepper

So far, it seems that Pikachu is winning this battle. However, we’ll only know the results when they’re released on 14 July.

And even though Japan’s the only country that will be getting this special treat at the moment, I’m still ok with that as long as there’s no chance of me having to eat a broccoli-flavoured McFlurry.
