McDonald’s has come under fire for its ‘disappointing’ Caramilk McFlurry just a day after the fast food chain launched its highly-anticipated dessert across Australia.
The Cadbury Caramilk McFlurry, featuring a vanilla soft serve, topped with caramel chocolate flakes and sauce, has been added to menus in all restaurants.
But after weeks of hype, dozens of unsatisfied customers took particular issue with the ‘tasteless’ ice cream, with many claiming they were only served a plain soft serve with shaved Caramilk on top.
‘I was so excited for this but was left so disappointed, it’s basically soft serve, couldn’t find the sauce, the chocolate on top was ok but needed so much more of it,’ one customer wrote in Caramilk Addicts Club Facebook group.

Another diner claimed: ‘It was s***, disappointing and pathetic… not worth buying,’ while one said: ‘I can barely taste the Caramilk on these. As an addict, the ice cream to Caramilk ratio is all wrong.’
One added: ‘I excitedly raced off to Maccas for my McFlurry. I was happy to make my lactose intolerant tummy suffer for that Caramilk goodness… I’m disappointed – it was a waste of $4.’
While another said: ‘Bought the Caramilk McFlurry and it was s***. Plain ice cream with a bit of grated over the top. So bloody disappointing.’
However, those who tried the creation said they enjoyed the new McFlurry flavour.
‘I had one and it tasted brilliant! Mine did have a bit of Caramilk sauce and Caramilk flakes on it though,’ one man said.
One woman added: ‘I loved mine… Will definitely be buying more,’ while another wrote: ‘I actually enjoyed it.’
Earlier this week, McDonald’s confirmed Caramilk McFlurry was launching across Australia after a ‘leak’ picture of the dessert sent chocolate fans into a meltdown
The news first broke after Brisbane chef Nick Vavitis shared a picture on his Instagram Story three weeks ago claiming: ‘Oh my sweet sweet god we are getting Caramilk McFlurry’. Nick shared a follow up, telling everyone he can ‘confirm’ the rumours are true
The launch comes just weeks after a ‘leak’ picture of the never-before-seen Caramilk McFlurry sent chocolate fans into a meltdown.
Earlier this week, McDonald’s confirmed the dessert was launching in stores for a limited time only.
‘It’s here, it’s Cadbury Caramilk McFlurry and it’s only available while stocks last,’ Liz Whitbread, senior brand manager, McDonald’s Australia, said.
‘Caramilk is a phenomenon adored by chocolate fans across the country. Its unique, delicious caramelised white chocolate is truly in a league of its own.
‘We are so excited to be introducing the Caramilk McFlurry and give Aussie Macca’s fans the dessert they have been dreaming about.’
Before the launch, a flyer started circulating on Facebook and Instagram claiming the Caramilk McFlurry is set to go on sale between October 13 and November 16.
The news first broke after Brisbane chef Nick Vavitis shared a picture on his Instagram Story three weeks ago claiming: ‘Oh my sweet sweet god we are getting Caramilk McFlurry.’
Many said they refused to get their hopes up just in case the dessert was fake.
However, Nick confidently responded: ‘I can confirm it is 1000000 per cent true. They are throwing a private launch party for it.’
