What does a Pikachu-flavored McFlurry taste like? Now we know

Too bad they are only in Japan.

Which Pokèmon do you think would taste the best? Last week McDonald’s Japan asked people to guess which Pokèmon-themed McFlurry would be hitting restaurants. 

Options ranged from a habanero-flavored Charmander McFlurry and broccoli Bulbasaur to less creative but likely tastier options like a chocolate and banana Pikachu treat or a white peach Jigglypuff.

Not-so-shockingly (hah), Pikachu was the winner. While a chocolatey banana McFlurry sounds like a great way to beat the summer heat, these tasty creations will only be released in Japan. The timing aligns with the upcoming one-year anniversary of Pokèmon Go as well as the release of the new Pokèmon movie I Choose You.

We don’t advise licking a Pikachu to see if he tastes like chocolate and bananas, but the color scheme certainly does match the adorable pocket monster.
