One of my favorite treats on a hot summer day is a McFlurry from McDonald’s…My favorite guilty pleasure I might add. But THAT SPOON! Why is it shaped like a giant rectangle?


Like why is there a GIANT square in the top of the spoon?

I used to think it was some sort of suction thingy AKA a straw, but after watching this video I realized I was totally wrong…

Is this engineer correct? NOPE. NOPE. NOPE. The internet was completely stumped about this magical spoon until Tumblr user ‘The Waiting Platypus‘ and McDonald’s employee enlightened us: “we fill the cup with ice cream, we dump the oreos on top, we stick the spoon in, we put the entire thing in a machine and use the spoon to stir your McFlurry.”
