“Sorry, the ice machine isn’t working.” Seven words that are a thorn in the side of every McDonald’s fan.
But there’s one thing that worries us all, the regularity of broken ice machines. There’s nothing worse than driving to your local restaurant to be told you’ll have to settle for a Coke or Fanta. Even worse, after a burger and fries, a McFlurry is denied for a sweet hit.
Thanks to an online card aptly named McBroken, fast-food fans can now check in advance if their local McDonald’s has a working ice cream machine.
A message on the website reads: “Welcome to Mc-Broken where we check the status of MC Donalds Ice machines in the UK. We are currently only able to review the ice machines in restaurants that offer online ordering through the My McDonald’s app, so you may encounter some restaurants with no status.
“We currently review the following 10 ice cream and milkshake products at each restaurant at least twice a day (more during the summer months).”
To check if McDonald’s restaurants have a working ice machine near you, go to McBroken website.
