Their strategy seems to be to lure us in with these $1 loss leaders, and slowly crank up the prices on other stuff. I noticed today that the regular burger prices (e.g. Quarter Pounder with Cheese) went up from $5.79 to $5.99.

Are you promoting defecating in the streets?

Is it a weird childhood memory of mine that once upon a time you paid like $0.10 or something and they dipped these in chocolate back in the day (~20 years ago)
No, but I remember when it was 49 cents!

So proof I'm not crazy about the twist cones - I took this on my way to work this morning. Must be a new sign because the old ones used to say $1 Vanilla Cone - and the App also said $1 Vanilla cone and $1.79 for the Chocolate & Twist.

Is this just a Vancouver Island thing?
Guess so?

Haha I remember ordering soft serve from McDs when I was in elementary school, but asked to have it in a cup. They gave it to me in a McFlurry cup, filled to the brim, for the same price as a cone and I was super stoked.

It’s an ok deal but Europe/Asia have these standard dipped in green apple, caramel, strawberry coating over vanilla. Taste much better.McDonald’s Canada is so generic compared to the rest of the world.

That is 7 years old.
So? I don't think they going to update it every year to say "hey still discontinued". I never seen it in metro Vancouver for the last 7 years.

It only started here a month ago.. as far as I can remember.

I figured it was a national thing but I guess it must be a pilot project. This must mean it's coming back everywhere soon!

That could be maybe they finally realized people like chocolate and twist more than just vanilla. Or maybe your area the franchise people decided they wanted it back (just like I think there are a few locations still in the USA that serve their pizza that was discontinued like 20 years ago)

I don't mind, they got to increase prices eventually and if they can lure people with promos, I'm all for it. Meanwhile, I've been enjoying the cheap ice cream.

It's not as good a deal as the coffee though, where you get more than $2 out of value for $1. The Costco cone is also much bigger and better and is what, $2? The IKEA one is good too. But I'm far away from Costco and IKEA whereas the McDonald's are everywhere so they'll get my frugal business.

I miss the swirl ice cream I'd get from McD as a kid. I was sad when I went there many years later and figured out they didn't have any.

I just tried the Mcdonalds 1$ ice cream cone and it didn't seem like a good value at all, it tasted like they figured out a way to blend it with more water to make it cheaper. I would stick with the Costco ones, much better deal and same price all year round.

Re: Costco.
1. a membership is needed
2. do you actually want to go to Costco just for a soft serve ice cream cone?
