We’ve all tried to suck our McFlurry out of the big hollow spoons they sell them with.
Yet no matter how hard we inhale or try to strategically place the spoon around the cup, it never works.
everybody knows the struggle of trying to slurp ice cream out of a mcflurry spoon

I mean, it looks just like a straw doesn’t it?

But to our surprise, the McFlurry spoons are manufactured that way to serve an entirely different purpose.
Tumblr user thewaitingplatypus, an ex-McDonald’s employee explained it for us:
He included these pictures to illustrate it better. The plastic utensil is also used to mix the ice cream.
The hollow body allows the spoon to be attached to the machine, rotating it to stir the dessert.
So it’s not actually a straw… oh well.
But c’mon McDonalds, why would you try and trick us all like that? I mean- I have to actually SCOOP the McFlurry with a SPOON and eat it like NORMAL ice-cream?? Insane!
It’s not just me who was shocked by the discovery though.
Just learned why the McFlurry from McDonald’s comes with that oddly shaped spoon. My mine was blown

The news is changing lives.
This Twitter user however isn’t affected at all.
Yes , I know the mcflurry spoon is not a straw, and yes I’m going to see if it is one every time I get it — Kora (@Kooraaaaaaa) October 10, 2015
