Some of the best childhood memories are made of dinnertime conversations. With food and drinks in plenty, conversations keep flowing. This is true especially for desserts.
According to research, people who eat dessert with family members vouch for better dinner experiences, and are happier in general. Of course there are reasons behind this happiness. By the time the dessert arrives, people are full, satisfied after a good meal. This satisfaction leads to the beginning of candid interactions which are always good for bonding with friends and family. Desserts put you in a good mood. And when one is in a good mood, it shows. Chocolate based desserts in particular cause your brain to release endorphins, which are chemicals that help you feel better.
Sounds like a win-win, right? Even for people watching their calorie intake, desserts are good. Taken once in a while, desserts ensure that your blood sugar is normal and you feel happy to have rewarded yourself for following a diet plan.
Need more reasons to have desserts? Here are five McDonald’s desserts that make sure you get your dose of happiness today with your loved ones.
Oreo McFlurry: Slow Down
When McFlurry was launched in India, the adverts requested people to slow down. Miss a call for a change, skip that business lunch for once, sit and don’t think of anything, close your eyes and feel the Oreo McFlurry melt in your mouth. Slow down. While there are several varieties of McFlurry out on offer, the McFlurry Oreo has a special place in everyone’s hearts. Not only are those biscuits absolutely delicious, they taste even better when mixed with McDonald’s delectable soft-serve. If you’re looking for some light hearted fun, and an insightful and interesting conversation with your loved ones, take them for an Oreo McFlurry. You will love to put everything on hold for a while and talk non-stop with them over a dessert.
Soft serves are whipped to be softer than hard packed ice-creams and they can be topped with multiple kinds of flavours, chocolate, strawberry, mangoes, whatever rocks your boat. At McDonald’s, they are made with milk along other ingredients like sugar, dextrose, stabilizer, flavoring and have less than 4% fat. They don’t burn a hole in your pocket as well, so take your entire family out for a dessert and ask them all about how their day went. Listen to them talking about what happened at school, know all about their new hobbies, make vacation plans…bond, because it matters. Dessert is just an excuse.
Brownie & Hot Fudge
What happens when two good things come together? They act as fabulous conversation starters. Nothing breaks ice like a combination of soft, gooey, chocolatey, heavenly brownie and a classic soft serve. Would you have the soft serve followed by a bite of brownie or vice versa? How about mixing the chocolate syrup with the ice cream first? Should you share or order more? Does it have to come at the end of a meal? Lots of decisions to take for you and your loved ones. Try it today to see how everyone likes it.
Perhaps the most famous cheesecake ever, this dessert is a royal treat for everyone with a sweet tooth.
