If you've ever ordered a McFlurry, you know that it all boils down to the ultimate decision: M&M or Oreo. In middle school, it was a topic of heated debate—the Oreos taunted the M&Ms, wielding that caustic coupling of incredulity and scorn that has systematically crippled the spirits of eleven year olds since...forever. To this day, though the taunting may have diminished, McFlurry eaters seem to remain vocally, indelibly attached to their topping of choice.

But here's the thing. What if I told you that you could break free from your years of torturous bondage? What if I told you that there's something better, something bigger than a mere Oreo or M&M McFlurry?

What if I told you that I'd wheeled and dealed and eyelash-batted my way into the most epic frozen dessert of all time? Yeah. That's right. I order The Oreo AND M&M McFlurry. No, I don't get my way every time. But some patience and a good sense of humor usually wins 'em over, and if it doesn't, don't despair! Just order yourself an Oreo McFlurry and stir in a personal bag of M&Ms.
