|McDonald's Singapore Durian Crunch McFlurry Receipt|
I immediately told my wife about it, and she thought it sounded disgusting. We both come from a cold-weather climate country, and durian is pretty foreign for us. To be honest, the smell of durian doesn't bother me at all, though I do not enjoy the taste unless the fruit has been chilled. This might because the very first time I tried the fruit, back in 2006, I had durian on a street corner in Kuala Lumpur. It was sitting directly in the sun, and therefore it was baked and served HOT, I thought it was pretty terrible... Since then I've only been able to eat cold durian, though the prospect of a Durian McFlurry still didn't seem all that appetising to me.
17 June was the day we left Singapore to go to Phuket for our wedding, so I didn't really have time to go out into the city and hunt for it. I still checked out one of the 2 McDonald's at Singapore Changi Airport, but as the McFlurry (like all other promo deserts in Singapore) was only served at the "Dessert Kiosks", which the airport didn't have it available, so I had to wait until our return. On the 25th we were back in Singapore, and my wife had some friends visiting her, so I thought it was a perfect time for all of us to try it.
I placed the order at the dessert kiosk, whilst the Koreans went to find an open table. I ordered 2 for the 4 of us, each couple sharing 1. I took a smell on the walk over to the terrible, and it smelt pretty terrible, unlike any ice cream I've ever had, let alone a McFlurry. It also didn't look all that great. The durian syrup they used was a orange/yellow, and it looked find drizzled on top, but once it was stirred around a bit, it looked just as bad as it smelt.
We both took our first bite, and you can see how we liked it by just looking at the photos below...
