McDonald's Singapore makes an interesting move for a fast food chain of general appeal by incorporating an extremely polarizing fruit into their latest, limited-time McFlurry, the new Durian Crunch McFlurry.
For those of you who have never heard of or encountered the durian fruit, it is an extremely pungent large fruit with a spiky shell that would not look out of place as the head of a mace.
How pungent is it? Put it this way: the durian is the only fruit banned from Singapore Mass Rapid Transit, and it's not because you can brain people with it in a pinch. People either really love it, or they despise it with all of their being.
McDonald's Durian Crunch McFlurry features a mix of vanilla soft serve, durian syrup, and what looks to be some kind of crunchy cereal. It's available at all McDonald's dessert kiosk outlets for $2.80 SG (~$2.24 US) for a limited time, which could be a cue for Singaporeans to either run to, or from, the nearest McDonald's kiosk.
