Can candy, syrup and feelings make the Grandma McFlurry at McDonald's a summer standout?

You won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on the Grandma McFlurry, one of McDonald’s sweetest soft serve concoctions to date.

The treat is inspired by grandmas, also known as the women “who always know how to make us feel special,” and who are known to carry a little something sweet in their purses.

McDonald’s has stayed unusually quiet about the Grandma McFlurry Flavor, simply stating that it is made with “delicious syrup and chopped candy pieces.”
