Did you know why your McFlurry spoon has a hollow bottom?

If you’ve been to the McDonald’s you’ve probably ordered the McFlurry at one point or the other. It is hands down one of the most popular items on the McDonald’s menu but there is something about the dessert that most people don’t know.

Have you ever wondered why the spoon you get with the McFlurry is hollow in the bottom?

Most people assume that it is a straw but fail miserably when they try to use it as a straw. This is because it is not a straw. In fact, the spoon is shaped in such a way so that it can fit a machine which is used to stir the dessert. Here’s what an employee from McDonald’s had to say about the same.

“As someone who worked at McDonald’s, I can tell you that: we fill the cup with ice cream, we dump the Oreos on top, we stick the spoon in, and we put the entire thing in a machine and use the spoon to stir you’re the dish,” he noted.

So next time you go to McDonald’s don’t try to use the spoon as a straw.
