The Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry is actually a strawberry-Oreo mashup.

It’s called the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry, but don’t expect to taste angel food cake mixed in with strawberry flavors. From what we’ve learned from a McDonald’s insider, this McFlurry blends Oreo chunks with strawberry syrup and vanilla soft serve.

Although this treat makes its debut at U.S. McDonald’s restaurants on April 3, 2023, it’s been a hit in Singapore for years — and is available there year-round. It’ll be available alongside the two permanent McFlurry flavors — M&Ms and Oreo.


Expect to pay $4.79 for the McDonald’s Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry.

McDonald’s doesn’t raise prices for their limited-edition, specialty McFlurry varieties. So you can expect to pay the same amount for the McDonald’s Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry as you would for any other McFlurry — about $4.79 for a regular 12-ounce, or $3.39 for the snack size (8 ounces).

Note: Each McDonald’s location is different, so prices may vary depending on your area. Check your McDonald’s app for the most accurate pricing.


Expect the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry to be available for at least a month.

Based on recent history with McDonald’s specialty McFlurry treats, you can count on ordering a Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry from April 7 until early May. (The Shamrock Shake McFlurry was available Feb. 20 through March 24.)

And after that, we expect McDonald’s to release a summertime McFlurry. In 2022 the Chocolatey Pretzel McFlurry was available May through July, so we expect a similar time frame.

TIP: There are several regional McDonald’s flavors, like the Oreo Matcha McFlurry (Japan) and Cadberry Crunchie McFlurry (U.K.), that can only be found in their respective countries. However, McDonald’s launched the McDonald’s Global Menu Restaurant in Chicago that sells international McFlurry flavors.



There are 440 calories per regular McDonald’s Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry.

If the U.S. version follows the same recipe as Singapore, the McDonald’s Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry will contain 440 calories per regular, 12-ounce serving. Now, that’s less than the Oreo McFlurry, which has 570 calories for the same size — so it’s totally possible the calorie count could be higher than 440.

Note: If you’re looking for more calorie counts, check the McDonald’s app for all the updated nutrition information.


Want the new McFlurry now? Make one with some creative ordering.

If you can’t wait until the Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry comes out, you can make one by combining two existing menu items. Warning: it might get messy.

Order a medium strawberry shake for $3.69 and an Oreo McFlurry with extra crushed Oreos for $5.48, and ask for an extra cup or two.

Use the extra cups to mix equal parts strawberry shake and extra-Oreo McFlurry. Boom — two 14-ounce makeshift Strawberry Shortcake McFlurrys for $9.17 (or $4.59 each). That’s actually cheaper than the McFlurry price and gives you an extra two ounces.

McDonald’s is infamous for having broken ice cream machines. And a broken ice cream machine means no Strawberry Shortcake McFlurry.
