McDonalds Canada: Chocolate Nanaimo Sundae

Diana Chan June 20, 2015 British Columbia, Fast Food


Throughout June, McDonalds is featuring 5 different ‘Canadian’ menu items for a limited time. It’s supposed to show off the flavour profiles of Canada.

I swear, this will be my last post about McDonalds this month ok? I finally finished trying all 5 items for their Summer promotion.


Chocolate Nanaimo Sundae has the soft vanilla ice cream base, with fudge and the Nanaimo crumble on top.


It really reminds me of the Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake because of the different textures and it has similar ingredients. Not bad at all. It was a pleasant surprise. The crumble is a tad sweet, but it still is missing that classic yellow cream thats part of a Nanaimo bar.

Being from British Columbia, I thought it was weird how it represents our province.

    It doesn’t sound odd to me, given that nanaimo bars originated in, well, Nanaimo.

    That said, they definitely cheaped out by not including the yellow goodness. If they had done it properly, I’d be distributing petitions to make it a permanent menu item.

    Mine didn’t look like yours; much smaller and less crumbles. In fact was a major disappointment, that in no way shape or form resembled Nanaimo bars. At $2.79 it left me feeling robbed, and as a resident of Nanaimo, deeply offended! Harumpfff!
    (I take ice cream way too seriously)

    I finally had the Nanaimo, and I think they missed the Nanaimo. A major let down for someone who loves Nanaimo’s as much as I do
