Ian K described the Oreo Mint McFlurry as tasting like a regular Oreo McFlurry with “a nice mint accent coming up on the backend. It’s pretty lovely.” He also exclaimed over its bright green coloring and thick ice cream texture.
He was a big fan, as seen below at Peep THIS Out!’s YouTube page.
Sadly, it seems that the availability of the Oreo Mint McFlurry is limited to Southern California markets right now, including the McDonald’s that Ian K. stopped at.
“The Oreo Mint McFlurry is currently being tested in select restaurants,” McDonald’s said in a statement to Delish . “Staying in touch with consumer preferences is incredibly important so we regularly conduct tests to look at ways we can evolve our menu for customers.”
As Ian K mentions, this minty, green-hued McFlurry seems like it might be a really great offering for the holidays. So maybe the limited market testing will result in a wider rollout closer to November and December?
Instagram food spotter Markie Devo is hopeful. He shared an ad for the new frozen treat writing, “This has minter written all over it ð¯. @mcdonalds will the rest of the world be blessed with this one?”

If you can’t wait until the Oreo Mint McFlurry comes to a Mickey D’s near you and you can’t afford to fly to SoCal right now, why not try your hand at making your own from the comfort of the kitchen ?
Burger King had a mint Oreo shake a few years ago, and blog Hungry Forever offered a copycat recipe for that. And Savor the Flavour has a Shamrock Shake recipe that includes mint Oreos, real mint and banana.
Are you a fan of all things mint ? Would you try this new treat?
