The McFlurry spoon
Ever wondered why the McFlurry spoons have a square hole at the end? Did you ever try to suck your McFlurry out of the hollow and failed while trying? We’ve been there! Oddly enough, these were not designed to be used as straws. So why do they have this curious shape?
An ex-McDonald’s employee revealed its real use and we bet it isn’t what you were expecting. It turns out this design is not meant for the consumers at all, but to make the process easier for the employees. In this process, the McDonald’s employees fill the cup with ice cream, they dump the Oreos on top and stick the spoon in, then proceed to use the spoon to stir your McFlurry through a machine.
