An Ode to McFlurry’s

Do you ever have those days when things just don’t seem to be working for you?

Like  you  spend ages baking a cake only to drop the cake just as you are ready to present it to the guests.

Or you turn up with all your bags to a hotel that you had prebooked and confirmed twice, only to find that the hotel have stuffed up, and you have to find another hotel?

Or you walk all over Germany, looking for apple strudel because, when you were seven and went to Germany with your parents cause your dad was based there for work, you learnt one German sentence expression which was “fünf Apfel Strudel mit Sahne” which means five apples strudels with cream, and you remember it was super tasty and so you think that it would be a great idea to try and order an apple strudel now your in Germany with Rock Star, but no one seems to serve it anymore but you finally find somewhere selling it and with great excitement order “apfel strudel mit sahne” only to find they end up presenting you this.


I’m sure you’ve experienced it.

So let me tell you what I like to do on such occasions as this.


I go for a McFlurry.

It doesn’t seem to matter where in the world you are, if things go wrong a Mcflurry makes it all alright.

And that’s why I love Mcflurry’s

Because they are reliable when life is not.

Plus they don’t charge you to use the bathroom at McDonalds.

  1. Awww, so sorry it’s not going so well for you… Apfelstrudel is probably not as “hip” as it used to be .. ahem.. a few years ago, but you do still get very nice versions… most of the time presented rather more lovingly than the example you share here.
    You know, and I know this isn’t gonna help one bit: The best Apfelstudel is the frozen one from the supermarket, it costs about 2 €, you put it in the oven for 30 minutes or so and it’s absolutely gorgeous… 🙂


  2. Okay, found THE place for you in Hamburg… recommended by an Austrian friend:
    Check out their menue for the Wiener Apfelstrudel 🙂
    I haven’t been to that restaurant, but I know the building, there’s some lovely little shops in there!
    Also.. directly opposite there’s a McDonalds… 😉


    1. @NIc. Wow! Thanks for your research – I really appreciate it. I think you’re right that Apple Strudel is probably not so popular now. I still got to eat lots of other amazing German food. The bakeries in Germany are AMAZING! Sadly the band are in Hamburg without me but I’ll send them out for Apple Strudel. The place you suggested is right near where we were staying in Hamburg last week and everything. I’m meeting up with the band next week in Germany so will continue my search. Alternatively I could just learn some more Germany phrases 🙂


  3. Hm, I’ll do some more research into traditional German foods and will get back to you 🙂
    It’s a real shame you won’t be in Hamburg!
