McDonald's Birthday & McFlurry Legacy 
For 25 years, the McFlurry has been sweetening moments big and small. This fan-favorite is known for its creamy, vanilla soft-serve – made with real dairy produced by dairy farmers in the U.S. – and delicious toppings in every bite. It began marking celebrations in 1995 when a local McDonald's Owner and Operator, Ron McLellan, in Bathurst, Canada created the treat. Today, it is offered in a number of countries around the world in a variety of beloved flavors.

McDonald's has had a heart-warming legacy with birthdays for decades. Whether it's a past birthday at a McDonald's PlayPlace or recent virtual party with the At-Home Birthday Party Pack, we've been there to help our customers celebrate these special moments. And as we continue to offer more delicious options, like the new, delicious limited time Chips Ahoy!® McFlurry, we look forward to continuing that legacy.
