In theory, a custardy fruit reminiscent of funky cheese sounds like a great option for a savory-sweet version of the McDonald’s McFlurry. But take into account that the spiky Durian fruit, native to Southeast Asia, is so odiferous that it’s illegal to carry one onto public transportation for fear of knocking out large groups of people at a time, and we wonder about the choices that led to McDonald’s Singapore serving a “Durian Crunch McFlurry.”
In Singapore, McDonald’s has these sweet little dessert kiosks, where you can stop for a quick fried apple pie pocket, or what have you, now serving: the Durian Crunch McFlurry for a steal at $2.80. The picture looks really pretty, and again, in theory, we see this working out. But storied Durian dissenter Andrew Zimmern declares that the dessert’s arrival signals that “the end of days is nigh.”
Well, this has been a bleak story.
