Black Thunder McFlurry

"How often do you go to McDonalds?" 

"Is American and Japanese McDonalds different?"

These are among some of the questions I get asked most as an American in Japan... Out of all my time in Japan I have only been twice, and for special menu items at that. Which brings me to today's menu item-- the Black Thunder McFlurry!

My favorite candy in Japan is the Black Thunder! (If you haven't tried it you are missing out! Go to the connivence store now, they are only 30 yen!) There are many different versions of this candy bar, but the black version is dark chocolate, which is by far the best!! When I read about McDonald's releasing a McFlurry version of it, I knew I had to try it! 

It did not disappoint me! It had chunks of dark chocolate, dark chocolate crispy chunks, and regular crispy chunks mixed in! It was perfection!! 

If you have the McDonald's app there is a coupon which brings the cost to only 250 yen!! 

I highly recommend it!! 

If you have tried it please comment your thoughts about it below!!

Happy Eating!!

    Love Black Thunder! I had no idea they were doing a McFlurry with it. I will be giving it a try for sure.
