Culture Trip stands with
Black Lives Matter
Possibly the most appetizing of the six possibilities, the Pikachu McFlurry tastes like chocolate-covered bananas and sort of looks like Pikachu if he/she/it were melted down and poured into a cup.
The most obnoxious character from Super Smash Bros tastes like white peach, which could be a bit bland but sounds rather refreshing on a hot summer day.
The Bulbasaur McFlurry tastes like broccoli. This is sure to be a big hit with the kids.
Gengar looks a little bit like a purple sweet potato, so that’s what his McFlurry tastes like. Potato-flavored ice cream might not sound great, but these potatoes are commonly used in Japanese sweets and desserts and are actually quite delicious.
The flame on Charmander’s tail reflects the creature’s physical and mental well-being, and his dessert is just as fiery. The Charmander McFlurry features habanero-flavored soft serve ice cream.
Arguably the cutest of the bunch, Squirtle’s McFlurry is inspired by the Ramune, a hugely popular lemon and lime soda first introduced in Japan in 1876.
After announcing the six possibilities on their website, McDonald’s Japan gave visitors a chance to vote on which McFlurry they want to see in stores by retweeting their desired flavor. The results of the election have just been announced, with Pikachu coming out on top. Better luck next time, Bulbasaur.
