New Year’s Eve feels like a distant dream, so it’s hard to believe that we’re only in the second week on January.

What always feels like the longest month of the year is unfortunately also the dreariest and most tiresome (not to mention being dry and meat-free too), so any good news is welcome. Especially when it concerns chocolate.

Well if you’ve been eschewing the January detoxes and treating yourself instead to get through the hardest few weeks in the calendar, then we’ve got something you’re going to want to dig into.

McDonald’s is finally bringing back their highly-coveted Galaxy McFlurry.

The fast food chain has added the popular dessert back to their menus. And with soft ice cream, sweet chocolate chips and smooth caramel, you can see why it’s a firm favourite.\

The classic ice cream dish that saved all of our childhoods (and hangovers) is usually available in a variety of flavours, with a special edition appearing on the menu now and then to give us all some extra choice. Not that there wasn’t enough already.

On their usual menu, the classic creamy soft serve is available with Cadbury’s Crunchie, Cadbury’s Dairy Milk or Oreo toppings, or you can get it plain or in a cone.

But now, the indulgent Galaxy Caramel has been added back to the menu – and it’s available in two sizes.

For £1.29 you can get a full-size portion, or you can get a mini McFlurry for only 89p.

However, there is some bad news…

The limited edition flavour will only be available for a limited amount of time, so you’ll have to be quick if you want one.

The very dangerous (and disgusting) thing found in McDonald

Galaxy Caramel McFlurry will be on the menu until 31st January, so will be around for just enough time to get rid of our January blues.

And of course, the time limit means that we have the perfect excuse to gobble down as many as we can before they disappear again. So maybe it’s not all bad.

It might be cold outside, but nothing can stop our love for these creamy, chocolatey delights. Not even the threat of The Beast from the East 2.0…
