No more need to worry about broken machines because, finally, someone has invented an app that will tell you if McFlurry's are available at your local store!
The McFlurry (and the McFlurry spoon/straw thing) is the greatest invention in fast-casual dining since the Happy Meal, but as we all know, the stupid machines are broken half the time! Ok, so it's not half the time, but it sure seems like they are broken a lot. Obviously, The Clown in charge knows this, yet he does little to help us. He just mocks us!
The best solution would be fixing the machines or, you know, building them to be more reliable. But other than that, at least let us know when the darn things are busted! There is nothing worse than waiting in the stupid drive-thru line, salivating at the prospect that soon delicious creamy, cookie-y goodness will soon be yours, only to arrive at the stupid speaker and the stupid person tells you the stupid machine is broken and you will NOT be getting any ice cream today! That drive by the windows, stopping for nothing, makes a walk of shame from a paramour's apartment on a cold Sunday morning seem like a cake walk. The drive-by in the drive-thru leaves you with nothing but frustration.
But now, fans of The Clown's ice cream have banded together and acknowledged our collective frustration and built...an app! Wait... an app? That's it? We can't suck down a delicious sugary treat with an app! But at least we can find out BEFORE we make the embarrassing drive if we will be denied a McFlurry or not. The "IceCheck" app is a crowd-sourced solution to knowing where the machines are working and where they are not. And, it's free! "I came up with the idea for the app around a year ago, after a late night Oreo McFlurry craving went unfulfilled due to the ice cream machine being down," Raina McLeod, the app's creator, told BuzzFeed. Well, thank you, Raina! Thank you very much!
So no more drives of shame! The McFlurry's shall be ours!
