Are we not human? If we go through the McDonald’s drive-thru and ask for a dipped cone, an Oreo McFlurry, a hot fudge sundae are we not told, “Our ice cream machine’s not working right now”?
If you frequent any McDonald’s in search of frozen treats, you know the odds of you actually getting them are stacked against you. Because, as has been discussed at length, the chain’s ice cream machines are usually and inexplicably “broken.”
Well, maybe less inexplicably than was previously thought. It turns out a four-hour cleaning regiment isn’t doing the McDonald’s ice cream business any favors.
But, as with most slight inconveniences, there’s now an app solution. Ice Check, KVUE reports, is a crowd-sourced app, equipped with GPS, that can lead you to the nearest McDonald’s with a working ice cream machine. And thus, the nearest McFlurry.
The app also lets you know when the latest vote (for a working or non-working machine) was cast.
You can download Ice Check, which is available for iPhones only, in the iTunes store here.
You can get ice cream and crush Oreos into it at almost any other store always.
