Are Macca’s Really Serving Chocolate Soft Serve? An Investigation

The rumours are true.

A sign in the window of a Maccas drive-thru has confirmed what everyone is speculating—they’re trialling a chocolate soft serve.

As perhaps, the most popular item on the menu, the chocolate soft serve is already generating buzz online, with social media posts rolling in of people trying the new flavour.

The fast-food giant has been offering chocolate soft-serve ice cream in select stores across NSW, Queensland and South Australia in addition to the classic vanilla variety.

Big Brother star, Tilly Whitfield, shared the sign which read, “We are trialling new chocolate soft serve for a limited time only,” it read. “Try one today.”

Whitfield was delighted by her Macca’s discovery, telling followers to “go now before they’re goneskies” and asking the fast-food giant to “please keep” the flavour.

According to the comments section of TikTok, she went to Sydney’s Mosman store for a special treat.

There are even reports Adeliade had been enjoying the flavour for months, while those in New South Wales and Queensland are only recently discovering the new flavour.

Although, a quick search in TikTok shows people posting about chocolate soft serves months ago.

And this one, from a Perth resident.

According to a article, McDonald’s Australia said it was looking forward to receiving feedback from customers which will form part of its decision to roll the chocolate soft serve out nationwide.

Everyone go vote, we want chocolate soft serve permanently.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
