McDonald’s McFlurry spoon is misunderstood and every true McDonald’s fan understands the struggle of confusing it for a straw. While the fast food restaraunt can’t change the iconic hollow spoon (a key piece of the mixing process), they can help ease the sting of your facepalm upon figuring out how to use it.
How? McDonald’s is giving everyone who has ever even thought the spoon was a straw…so yeah, everyone…a FREE Regular Size Caramel Brownie McFlurry on May 4 at participating McDonald’s. Simply scan the offer code in McDonald’s App and pick up their newest treat at your local participating restaurant, no purchase necessary.
Don’t want to leave the house? From May 3-9, you can get a FREE Regular Size Caramel Brownie McFlurry when you make a minimum $15 purchase exclusively on McDelivery with Uber Eats.
Consider it their way of making that salty moment of confusion just a little sweeter.
The sauciest moment of the year is here! The McRib is back nationwide for the first time since 2012, beginning Dec. 2. So that beard you’ve so proudly grown while in quarantine or for a good cause this November…it’s got to go. Or it could get in the way of you enjoying a mouthwatering McRib. That’s why we’re here to tell you to shave it, and you could get a McRib on us.
That’s right. Starting today, we’re giving away a FREE McRib to the first 10,000 entries from fans who show us their clean-shaven face. Beard or no beard, prepare for the McRib with a shave—or even a facial mask—because anyone can participate, from your brother to your mother, sister-in-law or cousin’s roommate. Just post a picture of your cleanly-shaven or baby-smooth face on your public Twitter or public Instagram profile using #Shave4McRibSweepstakes and tag @mcdonalds. Sorry, no Stories! The first 10,000 entries will receive a code for a free McRib, available via McDelivery with Uber Eats, while supplies last.
“Our bearded fans know… facial hair and the McRib just don’t mix—believe me, I’ve tried,” said Vice President of U.S. Communications, David Tovar. “With the nationwide return of the McRib, we’re helping fans enjoy every delectable moment by encouraging them to shave for a chance to win a free McRib. And we’re excited this year to partner with No-Shave November, a charity that knows a thing or two about facial hair.”
In recognition of those who’ve grown a little scruff for a cause this month, we’re collaborating with No-Shave November —a non-profit organization devoted to fundraising for cancer research, prevention, and education—for some added good. Just buy a McRib on Dec. 2 and your purchase will help support our donation to the charity’s cancer initiatives.
“No-Shave November is a month-long journey where we ask participants to put down their razors and ‘get hairy’ in the name of cancer awareness,” said Senior Executive Director of No-Shave November, Monica Hill. “We’re thrilled McDonald’s is supporting this important cause, getting both the bearded and the non-bearded involved beyond November simply by purchasing a McRib.”
Whether you’re a McRib fanatic or first-timer, get ready to clean up that facial hair and shave the date for the nationwide return. The season begins December 2 at participating restaurants via carry-out, Drive Thru, the McDonald’s app or McDelivery. It’s going to be a saucy one.

YouTube recently cut a deal with MGM studios and has released more than 100 titles onto their platform. The movies are ad-supported, meaning you can stream them for free, so long as you don’t mind occasional commercial breaks. Otherwise, you can shell out the $9.99 a month for an ad-free experience.
Among the multiple titles available are the original Terminator, the Rocky series, Legally Blonde, and the classic Pink Panther films. It’s unclear if YouTube, which is owned by Google, will cut similar deals with other studios to expand their selection. Considering that almost two billion people use YouTube a month, it seems that more would want to get in on the action.
