Continuing the trend of unique food items, McDonald's China has launched a distinct ice cream flavour on their menu. The limited new coriander or cilantro ice-cream sundae has taken the internet by storm. A Twitter user, Daniel Ahmad, created a stir on social media after he shared a picture of this new introduction by McDonald's China. “Mcdonald's China launched a Cilantro Sundae special menu item today, which is interesting,” Ahmad's post said.
Take a look:
The picture showed a McDonald's cup with vanilla ice cream topped with green coriander sauce and coriander leaves. The official website of McDonald's China mentions that the creative coriander ice-cream sundae is available at the price of 6.6 Yuan at their stores. They have also stated that it will be served in a limited quantity and on a first-come, first-serve basis that will be valid till stocks last.
The ice-cream flavour has left the internet divided as some foodies seem to like the new flavour while some cannot just accept a coriander seasoning on their ice cream. One of them said that he has tried the limited-edition coriander sundae and he liked it. Another said, "My worst nightmare - coriander ice cream. Apparently, a cafe in China smothers everything in coriander."
Take a look at how the users are reacting on Twitter:
This is not the first time, a food chain has experimented with coriander in a dessert. Last year in April, Subway had also released a new coriander cookie.
